Can Be More Proactive and Thorough with Their Review of Content

with their review of the types of content that appears on their sites by enduring
by a code of conduct. Facebook provides high security to protect its users and
their data while using their website. There is secure browsing. Encryption of
messages and posts are executed to prevent other users to access unless they
have permission. Facebook sets a priority in eliminating spam, the contacting
people with undesired data. Since the first time Facebook was introduced, the
company has improved on their security and now have introduced steps to secure
the Facebook account. Suggestions are made such as changing the current
password, contacting the help center if the account has been hacked, and
sending out alerts to inform when someone is attempting to log in from an
unrecognizable device or web browser. The alerts provide information on the
method being used to try logging in as well as location. In addition, the
policies of Facebook direct users of things not allowed which include nudity or
sexually suggestive content, hate speech, credible threats or attacks on
individuals or groups, the content of excessive violence, and deceptive

However, Facebook needs to ensure
that the filtering process of making accounts more secure, ensuring the content
which appears on the site does not break any laws is continuously improving.
Facebook must introduce a stricter and a more reliable process. Social media platforms have a definitive control over the type of
content that is posted on their sites. Users may publish the posts, but social
media staff can remove the content if needed. Facebook and other social media
platforms need to monitor what content appears on their sites more effectively
to help make sure every post is appropriate and doesn’t contain questionable
content. The best way to monitor the types of content on websites is to do
reviews of both reported and not reported content.

2.      Steps Facebook should take to stop
online crime

Stopping social media related crimes
is no easy task. In fact, it appears, at present, that criminal defendants have
the upper hand. However, law enforcement has been progressively adapting to the
Digital Age and integrating social media into every characteristic of policing.
For example, agencies from the New York City Police Department to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have introduced their very own social
media units or dedicated personnel to study and monitor social media.
Furthermore, legislators and prosecutors now have a hands-on approach to
prevent criminal defendants from take advantage of social media for illegal
purposes. For instance, several states have passed laws banning certain
criminal defendants from social media. Also, many prosecutors are now routinely
using social media in their cases. According to one Los Angeles district
attorney, “the first thing I do when I get a case is to Google the victim, the
suspect, and all the material witnesses. I run them all on Facebook, Myspace,
Twitter, YouTube and see what I might get.”

First
of all, all social media platforms may consider making all members
view/electronically sign a “FBI Warning document”. Prominently exhibiting the
FBI warning document can have an intimidation effect, due to which something
derogatory or inappropriate will less likely be posted or uploaded since it
will make users understand that they could face a huge fine or a federal
punishment. Social media companies such as Facebook/Instagram have the
technical expertise, and insight to not allow a post to be viewed by the public
until it is scanned and examined. Although it may take away the freedom we all
enjoy on these websites, it will help ensure that the content which appears is
not derogatory or that no crime is being committed.
