Two months after the horrific mass shootings at two Christchurch mosques that left 50 people dead was broadcast on faceboook live, the teach-giant is cracking down on its live-streaming service.
According to Facebook, it would be implementing a “one strike” policy to Facebook Live. This policy would ban users who will break the platform’s community standards from using the live-streaming for a set period of time.
Facebook VP of integrity, Guy Rosen wrote, “From now on, anyone who violates our most serious policies will be restricted from using Live for set periods of time — for example 30 days — starting on their first offense. For instance, someone who shares a link to a statement from a terrorist group with no context will now be immediately blocked from using Live for a set period of time.”
Not just on streamed content on Facebook Live, the “one strike” policy applies to content posted elsewhere on the website too.
Facebook hasn’t specified the duration of the bans or what it would take to prompt a permanent ban from live-streaming.
