Hate Me, Hate Me Not: Hate Speech Detection on Facebook

  title={Hate Me, Hate Me Not: Hate Speech Detection on Facebook},
  author={Fabio Del Vigna and Andrea Cimino and Felice Dell’Orletta and Marinella Petrocchi and Maurizio Tesconi},
While favouring communications and easing information sharing, Social Network Sites are also used to launch harmful campaigns against specific groups and individuals. [] Key Method We first propose a variety of hate categories to distinguish the kind of hate. Crawled comments are then annotated by up to five distinct human annotators, according to the defined taxonomy.

Interaction dynamics between hate and counter users on Twitter
The interaction dynamics of the hate and counter users could pave a more effective way for combating hate content on Twitter than just suspending the hate accounts.
Hate Speech Detection From Social Networking Posts using CNN and XGBoost
Two different approaches have been proposed for detecting hate and offensive language on social platforms with CNN architecture and XGBoost classifier which can achieve a higher quality of classification than current state-of-the-art algorithms.
Hate Speech Detection through AlBERTo Italian Language Understanding Model
AlBERTo is here proposed as one of the most versatile resources to be used for the task of classification of Social Media Textual contents in the Italian Language, supported by the similar results obtained by AlBERTo in thetask of sentiment analysis, and irony detection demonstrated in previous works.
Hate Speech Dataset from a White Supremacy Forum
A custom annotation tool has been developed to carry out the manual labelling task which, among other things, allows the annotators to choose whether to read the context of a sentence before labelling it.
Analyzing the hate and counter speech accounts on Twitter
This paper analyzes hate speech and the corresponding counters (aka counterspeech) on Twitter and finds that the hate tweets by verified accounts have much more virality as compared to a tweet by a non-verified account.
Challenges of Hate Speech Detection in Social Media
A deep natural language processing (NLP) model—combining convolutional and recurrent layers—for the automatic detection of hate speech in social media data is proposed, and it was shown that by doing so, it was possible to significantly increase the classification score attained.
Six Things I Hate About You (in Italian) and Six Classification Strategies to More and More Effectively Find Them
Whether it is possible to rely on neural networks and to achieve performance results at least comparable with those of NLP-based classifiers is investigated and it is demonstrated that relying on deep learning techniques for hate speech detection is more than encouraging.
Hate Speech Detection Using Natural Language Processing: Applications and Challenges
Different types of hate speech like racism, sexism, religious hate speech, etc. and the various methods proposed to tackle them are discussed and the challenges identified are identified and the solutions proposed are proposed.
Going Extreme: Comparative Analysis of Hate Speech in Parler and Gab
This work provides the first large scale analysis of hate-speech on Parler, among the first works to analyze hate speech in Parler in a quantitative manner and on the user level, and the first annotated dataset to be made available to the community.


Hate speech, machine classification and statistical modelling of information flows on Twitter: interpretation and communication for policy decision making
A supervised machine learning text classifier is trained and tested to distinguish between hateful and/or antagonistic responses with a focus on race, ethnicity or religion; and more general responses, and it is demonstrated how the results can be robustly utilized in a statistical model used to forecast the likely spread of hate speech in a sample of Twitter data.
Fame for sale: Efficient detection of fake Twitter followers
Hate Speech Detection with Comment Embeddings
This work proposes to learn distributed low-dimensional representations of comments using recently proposed neural language models, that can then be fed as inputs to a classification algorithm, resulting in highly efficient and effective hate speech detectors.
A Lexicon-based Approach for Hate Speech Detection
The goal of the research is to create a model classifier that uses sentiment analysis techniques and in particular subjectivity detection to not only detect that a given sentence is subjective but also to identify and rate the polarity of sentiment expressions.
Supervised machine learning for the detection of troll profiles in twitter social network: application to a real case of cyberbullying
A methodology to detect and associate fake profiles on Twitter social network which are employed for defamatory activities to a real profile within the same network by analysing the content of comments generated by both profiles is presented.
Do Not Feel The Trolls
The aim of this work is to use sentic computing, a new paradigm for the affective analysis of natural language text, to detect trolls and hence prevent web-users from being emotionally hurt by malicious posts.
Filtering Offensive Language in Online Communities using Grammatical Relations
This paper analyzes the Offensive language in text messages posted in online communities, and proposes a new automatic sentence-level filtering approach that is able to semantically remove the offensive language by utilizing the grammatical relations among words.
Detecting offensive tweets via topical feature discovery over a large scale twitter corpus
In this paper, we propose a novel semi-supervised approach for detecting profanity-related offensive content in Twitter. Our approach exploits linguistic regularities in profane language via
FakeBook: Detecting Fake Profiles in On-Line Social Networks
The investigation on the possible approach to mitigate the risk of not having a profile in the last fancy social network is reported, and the first ones to analyze social network graphs from a dynamic point of view within the context of privacy threats are noted.
A Criticism to Society (As Seen by Twitter Analytics)
Evidence that analytic results provided by field-flagship companies are questionable is provided and a serious re-thinking of the methodology currently used by companies providing analytic results is called for, whose present deliveries seem to lack on any reliability.
