LOL. Stupid facebook just made me click a button asking if my post about a coffee spot rebranding is "hate speech". That'll stop the Nazis.

This is weird.
Facebook is asking me about whether *my own post* on Facebook contains hate speech.
And also, the post is just a NYT story about restaurant trends in Austin, to which I've added no commentary. pic.twitter.com/ZIrUW4IW4q

I just had the same issue! I have a podcast where we review restaurants and bars in Cleveland and I posted asking our listeners their favorite Mexican place in CLE and I got this message, too! Weird.

This seems to be happening across the board. I've seen it on my own random posts as well.

It asks me that about every post today. Someone is running a giant machine learning experiment, it seems

I got the same question on everything on my feed; refreshed and it disappeared; what are they doing?
— Lisa Kling (@lisakling) May 1, 2018
Good question. What are they doing?
Facebook is now putting prompts under every post asking if it "contains hate speech." Well, that's it for conservative content on Facebook, which is their intent. If it's that easy to report a post for "hate speech," there will be no more conservative posts soon enough.

No, no … there’s nothing to worry about. According to Guy Rosen, Facebook’s VP of product management, this is a test. It’s only a test. But also a bug:
Some people saw 'does this post contain hate speech' today on some posts. This was a test – and a bug that we reverted within 20 mins. It was shown for a short time on posts regardless of their content (like this one). pic.twitter.com/iuNKSVTOqQ

So … what’s the point of this test, then? Or bug?
This is a terrible idea.

So, did you get enough data to try correlating texts to the 'hate speech' corpus then? Or did you remove it because it's a terrible idea?
Given the way Facebook’s been going, it seems less like a bug and more like a feature.
So, you're testing how best to completely eliminate conservative posts? Got it
