The company has been accused of censoring an anti-harassment article on Facebook that had been shared more than 2.5 million times in just over two months.
The article was written by a former Australian National University student, Dr Sarah Koehler, who had written about sexual harassment on Facebook and was not a member of the Australian Research Council (ARC).
Facebook said it was not aware of Koehl’s article and it removed it from the site.
The ARC’s student union issued a statement condemning the censorship.
Facebook has been criticised for its censorship of Ms Koehn’s article.
The former Australian national University student was the victim of a series of cyber attacks by Russian-linked groups, including one that shut down the university’s computer network and stole the university email accounts of more than 1,000 students.
“The ARC is outraged that Facebook is censoring our article and we ask the company to withdraw the article,” Dr Koehls wrote.
“This censorship is unacceptable and it’s been done to avoid public embarrassment for our organization and for our students.”
Ms Koeshler was not immediately available for comment.
Facebook told News.org.au the page was deleted because it did not have enough information about the ARC students, and had not been approved by Facebook’s guidelines.
Facebook had a policy for deleting content from its community pages that it set out in July 2016.
The policy said that content “likely to be abusive, threatening, invasive, defamatory, threatening to property or to other members of our community, or to the general public”, must not be posted.
Ms Kodeschler said she would not have shared the article without Facebook’s permission, and said that if the company had approved it, she would have shared it too.
Facebook’s rules state that “any content or material that appears on a page that has been identified as a potential source of spam or potentially abusive content will be removed”.
Facebook is not the only company to be accused of censorship.
Earlier this year, an Australian university student posted a photo of himself on a poster with the words “I’m a feminist”.
Facebook removed the image, saying it was “a joke”.
Earlier this month, Facebook announced a $10 million funding round to support “creativity and collaboration in the area of online safety”.
Facebook says its safety team is currently working with more than 200 organisations to improve its policies.
Facebook is currently testing an algorithm that would let users delete or block content without having to approve it.
