Professor Eugene Volokh spoke with Vice News about the presence of “hate groups”—such as white nationalists—on Facebook. Although the company has a system for detecting these groups and banning them from the platform, several are thriving on the site today. However, according to Volokh, Facebook shouldn’t attempt to over-censor content on their profiles.
“It’s a bad idea to interfere with serious important debates that are going on right now among American voters. That is not something that an American corporation should be doing,” said Volokh.
