Facebook said it removed tens of millions of posts that broke its rules regarding child pornography, hate speech and harassment in a Wednesday transparency report.

The tech giant said the report reflects its efforts to combat harmful practices that take place on its platform after the social media site received scrutiny for not doing enough to police child predators and hate speech in a Wednesday press release.

“We’ve made progress in important areas such as hate speech, child exploitation imagery, and posts about illegal drugs and firearm sales but we still have more to do. We’ll continue to invest in people and systems to combat harmful content on our platforms,” Facebook’s official Twitter account wrote in a Wednesday tweet.

We’ve made progress in important areas such as hate speech, child exploitation imagery, and posts about illegal drugs and firearm sales but we still have more to do. We’ll continue to invest in people and systems to combat harmful content on our platforms.

Facebook took action against a total of 20.8 million pieces of content related to suicide and self-injury, child nudity and sexual exploitation, and drugs and firearms sales in the third quarter of 2019, according to the release.
