Sky News spoke to Facebook’s head of global safety, Antigone Davis in an exclusive interview where she called for more context over hate crime figures on the platform.

Figures from the platform’s 2017 Transparency report show the algorithm stopped 99.5% of terrorist content before it went live however only 38% of hate crime posts were stopped.

It comes a day after reporting that the government will unveil plans for an internet regulator that could see fines for platforms in the future.

She told Sky News that content that could be viewed as hate crime ‘require a good deal of context in which to understand the term’.
