Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg: No Hate or Unlike button

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg has said the social network needs to get better on hate speech taking down migrants.


At the public session in Berlin Germany he identified them as one that needs protection instead of being hated.


About a 1,000 young people were invited to the public speech most of them were student.
 Although, Facebook has faced criticism in Germany for failing to police anti-immigration posts.

Their ministry of justice has said the social network acts quicker to remove sexual imagery than it      does racist messages.

Earlier in January, it was reported that German authorities were working on a deal with Facebook, Google and Twitter to make sure the law took priority over company policy.
When asked to clarify Facebook's position directly, Zuckerberg said: "There's not a place for this kind of content on Facebook. Learning more about German culture and law has led us to change the approach," he said.
He did not specify how he would stop this sort of material, but added: "Hate speech against migrants is an important part of what we now have no tolerance for on Facebook."
Germany receives more refugees and asylum seekers than any other EU country. Many of those have come from war-torn Syria.
