Facebook has once again come into the spotlight after it wrongfully flagged popular President Uhuru Kenyatta’s blogger Pauline Njoroge following a rape post.
According to the certified digital marketer, she was ” restricted from posting and commenting for 24 hours” after she exposed a user who had bullied her with rape threats.
I have been quite salty with Facebook. On 12th September 2021, a guy by the name PS Kiptoo commented on my post saying that I deserved serious rape. I took the screenshot and posted it on my wall, in order to call out that perverted bully. Facebook penalized me for thatNjoroge wrote
I was restricted from posting and commenting for 24 hours and restricted from adverting and doing Facebook live for 30 days.
The blogger further disclosed that her appeal on the suspension was ignored, another indication of the worrying miss-pick from the company’s Artificial Intelligence system.
Her followers took to the comment section to way into the matter as below;
Morris: Zuckerberg was also complaining of misinformation on one of his post early this week. Social media is uncontrollable. Bare with them.
Moses: AI is not comparable to human intervention. Even if you appeal, they cannot alter what the AI has picked as a keyword or a flagged word.
Kiyo: Facebook accused me twice of “promoting terrorism” just for doing a genuine analysis on terrorism and conflict in the horn of Africa. I no longer understand their so-called logarithms.
Paul: Pauline Njoroge by now you should be knowing machine learning is not yet a perfect affair. AI is still developing! even us persons with disabilities face ableism tendencies but are not taken seriously!
