Facebook Inc. (FB) said it has made progress in removing terrorist content using machine learning and other techniques, even as the perpetrators have adapted to earlier enforcement moves.

The company said Thursday that prioritization powered by machine learning has helped reduce the amount of time terrorist content reported by users stays on the platform from 43 hours in the first quarter of 2018 to 18 hours in the third quarter.

Median time on the platform for content surfaced via tools focused on newly uploaded content was less than two minutes in the third quarter, the company said.
