In an attempt to prevent disinformation, hate speech, and violence, Facebook purportedly divided countries into "tiers" to decide which needed the greatest protection.

According to documents obtained by The Verge, the social media behemoth divided countries into four categories.

Facebook offers a variety of services for countries in the top tiers, including translating its standards into the country's language and developing AI classifiers to detect hate speech and misinformation in that language. According to The Verge, staffing teams would evaluate viral content on a regular basis and respond to hoaxes and incitement to violence.
