Facebook said on Friday that it has been tightening the rules of this service in view of the use of its live video streaming service to air the attack on mosques in New Zealand. A white assailant attacked two mosques in Christchurch, in which 50 people died.
Chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said in an online post that many people raised the right question that how to use online platform like Facebook to spread the horrific video of the attack. He said, “We are taking three steps in the wake of the terrorist attack: Facebook is tightening the rules of using Live, taking more steps to stop spreading hatred on our platform and supporting the New Zealand community. .
According to Sandberg, Facebook is considering preventing the use of this service for people who have previously violated their livestreaming norms. Social networks are also investing in software that can identify them instantly to prevent violent video or the edited version of photos from sharing or re-posting.
