Probe: Facebook Incited Ethiopia Carnage


ADDIS ABABA (Dispatches) – U.S.-based social media platform Facebook has come under renewed scrutiny for persistently allowing user activists to incite ethnic massacres in Ethiopia’s escalating war. According to a probe by UK-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ) and the Observer newspaper released Sunday, Facebook continues to permit users to post content that triggers violence through hate and misinformation. The investigation tracked down relatives who have tied Facebook posts to the killings of loved ones.
