Facebook takes down Sanjeev Sanyal’s post on the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks terming it as against their ‘Community Standards’ on spam
The matter was resolved later after Sanyal personally complained to Meta, which owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, among other products and services.
“Facebook has just informed me that my post on the 26/11 Mumbai attacks is against their ‘Community Standards‘ on spam… really??? And how is it spam? or ‘false advertising‘? Evidently, Indians are not allowed to even remember atrocities inflicted on us,” Sanyal said in a series of tweets.
“When I put it up for review, this is what I received in response (referring to a screenshot from Meta saying that the post goes against its community standards on spam). So this is not some dumb algorithm making a mistake. It is a company policy,” he added.
Later he tweeted that “the matter has now been fixed after I made a personal complaint to someone in Meta. However, it does illustrate how the default system works… good to know”.
Saturday marked the 14th anniversary of the deadly Mumbai terror attacks, in which terrorists from Pakistan carried out 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days across the financial capital of India, killing over 160 people.
