Facebook says it will be limiting the number of people a Sri Lanka-based user can forward messages to on the social media platform and is improving its artificial intelligence (AI) to flag posts in Sinhalese to combat hate speech.

The firm says it will make fundamental changes to their products to address virality and reduce the spread of content that can amplify and exacerbate violence and conflict.

Facebook has now limited forwarding messages to five persons, similar to a function introduced on its messaging platform Whatsapp earlier in 2019.

Facebook is also improving its AI, so that posts in local languages such as Sinhalese can be better scanned for hate speech.
