Facebook Sends Messages To Users Asking About Potential ‘’Extremist’’ Friends!

Numerous FB users reported that they received warning messages linked to ‘’extremists’’ or ‘’extremist content.’’

“Are you concerned that someone you know is becoming an extremist?” was one type of message. “We care about preventing extremism on Facebook. Others in your situation have received confidential support.”
It also has a button to ‘’Get Support’’, leading to another FB page.

Kira Davis, a Redstate editor, obtained a screenshot of the message and said: “Hey has anyone had this message pop up on their FB? My friend (who is not an ideologue but hosts lots of competing chatter) got this message twice. He’s very disturbed.”

Other FB users shared that they got a wanting about possible exposure to harmful extremist content. The message stated: “violent groups try to manipulate your anger and disappointment,” similarly offering a “Get Support” option.

“Facebook randomly sent me this notice about extremism when I clicked over to the app. Pretty weird. … The Get Support button just goes to a short article asking people not to be hateful,” another user tweeted.

The FB spokesperson shared on July 1 and the company is sending warnings as a test.

“This test is part of our larger work to assess ways to provide resources and support to people on Facebook who may have engaged with or were exposed to extremist content or may know someone who is at risk. We are partnering with NGOs and academic experts in this space and hope to have more to share in the future,” the spokesperson announced.

Once some lawmakers targeted and pressured CEOs of platforms like FB, Twitter, Google, and Microsoft and accused them of extremism and misinformation, this message comes as a result.

Trump was among the conservatives who argued for revoking Section 230 of the Federal Communications Decency Act, which serves as a liability shield for online publishers.

The warning messages trigger more negative feedback due to fears that the company wants to stifle free speech.
