Facebook banned a blogger's post for mentioning Khokhloma. This word was considered an insult

Russian popularizer of astronautics Vitaly Egorov complained that Facebook blocked his last post. In it, he talked about the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle of the Roscosmos state corporation, which was painted under the Khokhloma for the 800th anniversary of Nizhny Novgorod. According to the Russian, his post was banned for “violations of the community norm in terms of hostile statements and insults.”

Vitaly Egorov posted screenshots of the notification from Mark Zuckerberg's company on his Facebook. The social network hid the post from other users and added the tag “hate” to it. In the post, he said that Roskosmos, in cooperation with the government of the Nizhny Novgorod region, painted the Soyuz-2.1b rocket like a Khokhly rocket, which is to launch the Prichal node module into orbit.

“Colleagues, authors, who write about x **** mu on the Roskosmos rocket. Keep in mind that Facebook hates her. So he writes: “Hatred!” “- said Yegorov.

Roskosmos decorated the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with Khokhloma in honor of the 800th anniversary of Nizhny Novgorod.

Earlier, ex-footballer and head coach of Volgograd FC Rotor Dmitry Khokhlov said about problems with censorship on Facebook. The former Russian national team player has filed a lawsuit against the social network for the fact that service algorithms interpret his name as an insult to Ukrainians. Because of this, he cannot use Instagram or Facebook, and his friends cannot mention him on social media without going to a weekly ban.

Secret said that employees of the IT giant have repeatedly complained about the company's internal policy. According to the quitting employees, Facebook's algorithm provokes users to aggression and incites conflict to keep the content interesting and engaging.

Facebook has also created a “white list” of users who can violate the rules of the social network. Accounts from this list were not blocked, and posts were not deleted. Among these privileged accounts are celebrities, politicians, and even pet accounts.
