Okobi said this on the sideline of the second “Media, Citizens and
Good Governance Conference’’ in Abuja.
She said “Facebook doesn’t create content; we create a platform and then people get content; if Nigerians are passionate about the
constitution, they can put it on Facebook; it’s free.
“We have created a platform that makes distribution of content easy.
“However, Facebook is not a place where everything goes; we do have rules because we want to create a community that maximizes people feeling safe online.”
On alleged misuse of facebook, Okobi defended users by saying that the fact that people express themselves freely on the platform does not amount to abuse.
She said that the organization had content policy, adding that there
were some specific things that it would not allow on its platform.
“We don’t allow hate speech, certain type of nudity and violence; we
have a community standard.”
