Facebook algorithm found to actively promote Holocaust denial — Facebook search function brings up suggestions for denial pages, recommends links to publishers which sell revisionist and denial literature, as well as pages of notorious Holocaust deniers https://t.co/na9rM2nIJo— Alfons López Tena (@alfonslopeztena) August 16, 2020
Let’s not forget that @Facebook is under zero obligation to allow Holocaust denialists. Or white supremacist groups. Or conspiracy mongers. As a business, they can do whatever they’d like.— Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) August 16, 2020
This makes it all the more disgusting that they amplify all of it.#StopHateForProfit https://t.co/bCGHLz1LWM
We call on @facebook to answer the ISD’s allegation. Permitting Holocaust denial as “free speech” is one thing. Actively promoting it is another. It is yiur urgent moral duty to explain: IS IT TRUE? #faceupfacebook https://t.co/rxd164Uzvc— UK National Holocaust Centre & Museum (@HolocaustCentUK) August 17, 2020
BOMBSHELL: “At least 36 Facebook groups with a combined 366,068 followers which are specifically dedicated to Holocaust denial.”— Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) August 16, 2020
And algorithm recommends more once they’re viewed!
Nothing has changed at @Facebook since the #StopHateForProfit campaign.
Advertisers take note. https://t.co/RNg1M6T7iZ
Recalling @karaswisher interview with Facebook CEO Zucka covering this topic. again, too much focus is on the binary decision of taking down / leaving up - FB prefers this debate. The critical issue is Facebook “actively promotes” - that’s their biz model. https://t.co/wyp9ieomQI pic.twitter.com/QpFDhcZW9l— Jason Kint (@jason_kint) August 17, 2020
It's bad enough that Facebook refuses to remove holocaust denial from its platform.— Center for Countering Digital Hate (@CCDHate) August 17, 2020
Now their algorithms have been found to actively promote it.
Businesses advertising on Facebook can change this - pause your adverts & tell them why. #StopHateForProfithttps://t.co/o3wNKZ6kHf

Denying the Holocaust is antisemitic. It is a conspiracy theory suggesting that it is made up, untrue. @Facebook, please - remove this hateful material— Karen Pollock (@KarenPollock100) August 17, 2020
Facebook algorithm found to 'actively promote' Holocaust denial @guardian @HolocaustUK https://t.co/F2sZjF8RfZ
Holocaust Denial is a despicable, antisemitic conspiracy theory that Jews hoaxed the entire world and @ISDglobal's research reinforces what we know to be true: Facebook not only profits off hate, they amplify and recommend it. They must #StopHateForProfit. https://t.co/2FG5Dt1G7K— Jonathan Greenblatt (@JGreenblattADL) August 17, 2020
"Typing 'Holocaust' in the Facebook search function brought up suggestions for denial pages, which recommended links to publishers which sell revisionist and denial literature, as well as pages dedicated to the British Holocaust denier David Irving."https://t.co/RJU90vMd1J— Batya Ungar-Sargon (@bungarsargon) August 17, 2020
"Facebook announced it was banning conspiracy theories about Jewish people 'controlling the world'. However, it has been unwilling to categorise Holocaust denial as a form of hate speech, a stance that ISD describe as a “conceptual blind spot”. https://t.co/TNWgKOhRmz— Alex DiBranco (@alexdibranco) August 17, 2020
