Updated : May 16, 2018 06:24 AM IST

The company removed or put a warning screen for graphic violence in front of 3.4 million pieces of content in the first quarter, nearly triple the 1.2 million a quarter earlier, according to the report.
Facebook does not fully know why people are posting more graphic violence but believes continued fighting in Syria may have been one reason, said Alex Schultz, Facebook's vice president of data analytics.
Facebook, the world's largest social media firm, has never previously released detailed data about the kinds of posts it takes down for violating its rules.
