WATCH: The Facebook Incitement Experiment

I think Ivgeni Zarubinski and Shurat HaDin, The Israel Law Center, may have just broken Facebook with this experiment. Only one hour after posting, the video has over 1,400 shares.

Two identical pages were created with equally inciting posts with only one difference. One was anti-Israel, and one was anti-Palestinian. Only one of them was in violation of Facebook’s community standards. This short video shows us exactly what we have known all along. Facebook has a serious problem with its “Community Standards” and it’s time they fix it.

Here is the page, still going, with the incitement to kill Jews that is acceptable to Facebook’s “Community Standards”. Take a look at what Zuckerberg’s company thinks is fine while it’s still up. Stop Israelis.

This is a must share.

Update: Adding a YouTube version because the video seems to have trouble playing when the story is opened within the Facebook app on an iPhone. Strange.

Update 6th January: Obviously, once the video went viral on Facebook (oh the irony), Facebook noticed and took down the second of Shurat Ha’Din’s pages. But wait, there’s more, Brian has posted a new video today showing more problems with anti Jew hate on Facebook.
