Meta: Facebook's algorithms 'supercharged' hate speech in Ethiopia's Tigray conflict

Facebook has been accused by rights group Amnesty International of contributing to violence during the brutal two-year conflict in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region. The social media site's algorithms "supercharged the spread of harmful rhetoric", Amnesty said in a report. It failed to take adequate steps to curb the spread of such rhetoric, Amnesty added.

Facebook being called out for spreading incitement to genocide yet again. Looks like they are still unwilling to hire appropriate language speakers.
