FACEBOOK IS TRAINING THEIR EMPLOYEES
There have been challenges for social networks regarding political issues recently. For example, only a few weeks back the father of an American student who got killed in the Paris attack sued social networks such as YouTube, Google and Twitter for being guilty of enabling the terrorists to use their platforms.
Now, Facebook has decided to prevent such political issues by training their employees. They want to make sure that their employees know how to watch out for political bias.
They already have started the employees how to watch out, spot and manage political bias when they are faced in their work.
However, the company has not said when they will start the project and which divisions of the company will be trained first.
People still wonder, if the training is going to be efficient or not. Because, Facebook already tends to hire white men in higher positions, even though they teach their employees about discriminations based on gender and races.
