The chart shows the distribution of the content actioned under other types of violations on Facebook, from the fourh quarter of 2017 until the first quarter of 2022. A metric for a new policy area called violence and incitement was added to the Community Standards in the third quarter of 2021. Additionally, starting with the second quarter of 2021, the child nudity and sexual abuse category was renamed child endagerment and collects data on two separate topics: sexual exploitation and nudity and physical abuse. The data shows that the adult nudity and sexual activity remains the main reason of removal on Facebook, followed by violent and graphic content, violence and incitement and child endagerment. The chart excludes the content removed under fake accounts and spam content violations.
