Users face consequences as Facebook struggles to filter hate speech
Last month, Kate Hansen woke up in her home on Vancouver Island and started going about her routine, which included a check-in with Facebook. She was stumped to find that she could no longer post anything or read any messages. Hansen, 40, had a pretty good idea that her account suspension was because of one of two posts. The first was related to a comment expressing her opposition to Facebook recently suspending the accounts of other lesbians for using the word “dyke” on the social network.
