What do Facebook and the French judicial system really intend with their deal?

The world's worst social media site, Facebook, will give data on alleged "hate speech" to the French court system (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
In a world first, Facebook has agreed to hand over the identification data of French users suspected of hate speech on its platform to judges, France’s minister for digital affairs Cedric O said on Tuesday.

O, whose father is South Korean, is one of French President Emmanuel Macron’s earliest followers, and has been influential in shaping the president’s thinking on Big Tech as an advisor at the Elysee palace in the first two years of Macron’s presidency.

The decision by the world’s biggest social media network comes after successive meetings between Zuckerberg and Macron, who wants to take a leading role globally on the regulation of hate speech and the spread of false information online. [...]

“It is a strong signal in terms of regulation,” said Sonia Cisse, a counsel at law firm Linklaters, adding that it was a world first. “Hate speech is no longer considered part of freedom of speech, it’s now on the same level as terrorism.”
But just what kind of hate speech are they talking about? If it's opposition to Islam they're talking about, then it's little more than another effort at cracking down on free speech in defense of civilization again. And that's one more reason why I don't want a Facebook account. People who believe in free speech would do better to seek out competition who aren't so obsessed with cozying up to politicians and such, like Minds and MeWe, and I have an account on the former. What's the use of such a bottom of the barrel site as Facebook anymore? If nobody cares about MySpace anymore, then it'd be best to let go of Facebook too. The less politically motivated a business, the better it is to maintain business with.
