Daily Prompt: Freedom of Facebook

“Facebook has recently come under attack for failing to enforce its own guidelines on hate speech and violent imagery. Is it a website’s job to moderate the content users post, or should users have freedom to say what they want? Is there a happy medium? If so, how would you structure it?” -The Daily Post 

I don’t think Facebook could ever monitor everything that users post. There are billions of people online, how could anyone ever expect them to do that? I think Facebook’s only practical option is to set down fair use guidelines, expect people to follow them, and enable “report” and “spam” buttons so that if users see people breaking the rules, they can be reported and then possibly banned or whatever. It would be ridiculous (and impossible) for Facebook to review every single thing posted on their website. People should use common sense and only post things that they think will not cause controversy.
