A warning is being issued to some users by Facebook. According to media reports, Facebook has shown a notice in a screenshot shared by the social media platform Twitter, in which users have been asked whether you know any person who is becoming an extremist? Apart from this, users have been asked to be aware of exposure to harmful extremist material. According to media reports, Facebook has long been under pressure from lawmakers and civil rights groups to combat extremism on its platform. The domestic movement in America during January has also been included in this. Let us tell you that groups supporting former President Donald Trump tried to prevent the US Congress from certifying in this movement.

Let us tell you that Joe Biden won the US election in November. Facebook says this is a small test, done only on its main platform. According to media reports, a Facebook spokesperson said in an email that this test is part of our work to assess ways to provide research support to people who are associated with or in contact with extremist content on Facebook.

Some Facebook users in the US have been asked whether they are concerned that someone they know may become an “extremist” through suspicious online posts or activities, as the social network is intended to be an “extremist”. The platform has to deal with extremism. Other users are being informed that they may be exposed to extremist content. Facebook spokesman Andy Stone told CNN that this is part of a test the social media company is running with its ‘Redirect Initiative’. Its aim is to combat ‘violent extremism’. A report on Thursday quoted Stone as saying that “the test is part of our larger work to assess how we can provide resource support to people on Facebook who are involved with or exposed to extremist content, Or know someone who is at risk.
