I mentioned the problem a while ago and you had some thoughts

Human rights groups say that Facebook is narrowing the scope of and delaying the process for an independent report commissioned to investigate hate speech on the tech giant's platform in India.

Representatives for the groups told The Wall Street Journal they provided hundreds of examples of inflammatory content and suggested ways the platform could better moderate content in India to the firm Facebook commissioned in mid-2020 for the report, but said the tech giant is stifling the independent report.

Facebook pushed back on the accusations that it is interfering with the report. A spokesperson for Meta, Facebook's new parent company name, said the goal is to be thorough not "meet an arbitrary deadline."

Stone said Foley Hoag, the firm commissioned by Facebook for the report, is running the process and that Facebook is not aware of or in touch with which groups were contacted. Stone also told the Journal the platform has removed material that violates its rules that groups flagged to Foley Hoag.
