The chart shows the distribution of the content actioned on Instagram, by reasons of removal. The data shows that adult nudity and sexual activity remain the main reason of removal of content, followed by hate speech and violence and graphic content. In the last three quarters of 2020, the share of content actioned under hate speech violations increased significantly compared to previous periods (four times higher in the last quarter of 2020 compared to the last quarter of 2019).
