Facebook said it was able to remove so many accounts and posts that violated its community standards thanks to its AI tools.

The social media company targeted accounts which produced inappropriate content from several areas including graphic violence, terrorist propaganda, and hate speech.

837 million pieces of spam were removed in Q1 2018, all of which were found and flagged by Facebook's systems before anyone even reported it.

The company removed or put a warning screen for graphic violence in front of 3.4 million pieces of content in the first quarter, almost triple the 1.2 million a quarter earlier, according to the report.

The prevalence of graphic violence was higher and received 22 to 27 views-an increase from the previous quarter that suggests more Facebook users are sharing violent content on the platform, the company said.

Facebook's new report, which it plans to update twice a year, comes a month after the company published its internal rules for how reviewers decide what content should be removed.
