The chart shows the share of fake accounts and spam content actioned on Facebook, from the fourh quarter of 2017 until the end of 2020. While these two violations remain the main reasons of removal of content on Facebook, the data shows that the other types of violations (such as adult nudity and sexual activity, child nudity and sexual exploitation, bullying and harassment, dangerous organisations, hate speech, and violent and graphic content) have also increased during this period.
