Facebook removed tens of millions of user posts in the past six months for violating its terms of service regarding child pornography, drug sales and terrorism. Millions more were removed from Instagram.

That’s according to a new report released Wednesday by Facebook that details how the social media company enforces its own content policies. The report, which is published every six months and for the first time includes data from Instagram, said that Facebook identifies most of the content it removes automatically using its own software algorithms.
