Letter Published in The National UAE on 19March 18Social media sites should ditch the hate speech
Please refer to your article Facebook blamed for spreading hate in Myanmar, Sri Lanka (March 17): the allegation that the popular social media site Facebook contributed to violence against Muslims in in Myanmar and Sri Lanka by not doing enough to snuff out hate speech and inflammatory posts is saddening. Social media sites are supposed to propagate positive messages and information to their users. Hate speech is a virus and Facebook – with its reputation still intact – should take steps to kill it.
