Report Faults Facebook for Being Used to Incite Violence in Myanmar

Facebook failed to prevent its platform from being used to “foment division and incite offline violence” in Myanmar, one of its executives said in a post on Monday, citing a human rights report commissioned by the company. The report, by Business for Social Responsibility, or BSR, which is based in San Francisco, paints a picture of a company that was unaware of its own potential for doing harm and did little to figure out the facts on the ground.
