Social networking site Facebook is going to toughen the rules of live video streaming service. Facebook has said that it is tightening the rules in view of the use of its live video service- Fcebook Live which was used to air the attack on mosques in New Zealand. In the past, an attacker attacked two mosques in Christchurch, in which about 50 people died.
Facebook taking action against terrorist attack
Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said in an online post that many people raised the right question that how online platform like Facebook was used 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 New Zealand community. ‘
According to Sandberg, Facebook is considering preventing the use of this service for people who have previously violated their livestreaming criteria. 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.
