FB Anon was shut down after reports claimed it was used to ‘harass’ employees
FB Anon: According to most readers, FB anon could be comprehended as ‘anonymous’ or even ‘soon’ in medieval english vocabulary. Anyhow, this Facebook direction and the stage was closed down. The employee who wrote the document argued that “the representation gap between women and men in software engineering persists due to biological differences between the two genders”.
Earlier this month, an anti-diversity “manifesto” went viral inside Google, infuriating its workers.
Established for workers to anonymously voice their concerns, the platform called ‘Facebook Anon’ became political about the US presidential elections of last year.
“Last year, we disabled any anonymous internal groups or pages within Facebook and educated our people of the places at our company at the place where they could have discussions about topics that matter to them, publicly or confidentially as proper,” Goler said in a statement.
The group was shut down from Facebook in December 2016 without excuse. But, Zuckerberg told workers that the group had been used to harass others.
The anti-diversity manifesto suggested that Google should halt initiatives targeted at increasing racial and gender diversity within the business and instead focus on “ideological diversity”.
According to the report, the discussion group inside Facebook where workers conversed anonymously turned ugly and transformed the forum into a hub for opinions that were political.
“The ‘FB Anon’ internal Facebook staff violated our Terms of Service, which require individuals who use Facebook (for example our workers) to utilize an authentic identity on our platform,” Business Insider quoted Facebook Head of People Lori Goler as stating.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg closed down an anonymous online chat platform in late 2016 after it was increasingly used to discuss the US presidential candidates and ‘harass’ the company’s employees, press reported on Thursday.
