Facebook built censorship tool to get into China despite human rights risks

  |   Tech News

Facebook wants to be unbanned in China, so it’s built a censorship tool that could hide posts about prohibited topics from people in China. Rather than censor posts itself, Facebook would potentially provide the tool to a third-party in China such as a local partner company that could use it to prevent users in China from seeing content that breaks the government’s rules.

While China could unlock huge amounts of users and ad revenue for Facebook, the censorship tool could also be used to enact human rights abuse. If China could track which local users are trying to protest or bad-mouth the government, they could face persecution.
