Graphic violence: During Q1, Facebook took action against 3.4 million pieces of content for graphic violence, up 183% from 1.2 million during Q4.
In total the social network took action on 3.4m posts or parts of posts that contained such content.
That was less than 0.1 percent of viewed content - which includes text, images, videos, links, live videos or comments on posts - Facebook said, adding it had dealt with almost 96 percent of the cases before being alerted to them.
This was up from 0.16-0.19% in the previous three months.
Guy Rosen, Facebook's vice president of product management, said the company had substantially increased its efforts over the past 18 months to flag and remove inappropriate content.
Nearly 86 per cent was found by the firm's technology before it was reported by users.
The figures are contained in an updated transparency report published by the company which for the first time contains data around content that breaches Facebook's community standards.
The first of what will be quarterly reports on standards enforcement should be as notable to investors as the company's quarterly earnings reports.
Meanwhile, Facebook in Q1 2018 flagged 1.9 million terrorism-related posts, from related to ISIS, al-Qaeda and affiliated groups, up from 1.1 million in Q4 2017.
As Facebook continues to grapple with spam, hate speech, and other undesirable content, the company is shedding more light on just how much content it is taking down or flagging each day.
This led to old as well as new content of this type being taken down. The company found and flagged 95.8% of such content before users reported it. It attributed the increase to "improvements in our ability to find violating content using photo-detection technology, which detects both old content and newly posted content". The inaugural report was meant to "help our teams understand what is happening" on the site, he said.
Facebook said Tuesday it took down 21 million "pieces of adult nudity and sexual activity" in the first quarter of 2018, and that 96 percent of that was discovered and flagged by the company's technology before it was reported.
The social networking giant also said that it disabled 583m fake accounts in the first quarter of the year and now estimates that between 3pc and 4pc of all active accounts during the period were fake.
Facebook said it released the report to start a dialog about harmful content on the platform, and how it enforces community standards to combat it.
Utilizing new artificial-intelligence-based technology, Facebook can find and moderate content more rapidly and effectively than the traditional, human counterpart-that is, in terms of detecting fake accounts or spam, at least. And more generally, as I explained last week, technology needs large amounts of training data to recognise meaningful patterns of behavior, which we often lack in less widely used languages or for cases that are not often reported.
The response to extreme content on Facebook is particularly important given that it has come under intense scrutiny amid reports of governments and private organizations using the platform for disinformation campaigns and propaganda. It says it found and flagged almost 100% of spam content in both Q1 and Q4.
