Facebook has banned four groups involved in spreading hatred and inciting violence in Myanmar.

We want to stop them from using our services to increase the tension. ” After spreading hatred in Myanmar, after engaging in criticism for not taking enough steps to prevent misuse of its platform, Facebook had promised to invest more in public, technology and partnership to make social network safer in November.
