Facebook isn’t responsible for attack

Facebook Inc. doesn’t have to face a lawsuit by victims of Hamas attacks and their relatives who claimed that the social network unlawfully assisted the terror group, a federal appeals court ruled.

In a 66-page ruling issued Wednesday, a divided court upheld a judge’s decision to throw out the case, saying an interactive computer service is not the publisher of third-party information when it uses tools that are designed to match content with consumer interests.

But I thought they stop harmful content reaching the platform. Fact is a dumb pipe can't be blamed for what users do but as soon as you start curating content you open the door that you're responsible for what's posted.
