#Roommates, just a week after a major hiatus affecting Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, Facebook has just announced plans to introduce a series of new policies — and originally, it was specifically created for celebrities. According to reports, Facebook will now ban any content that sexually harasses celebrities, which is part of its latest policies to target bullying and harassment.
@TheVerge reports that Facebook made a big announcement earlier today about the removal of “heavy sexual content” aimed at celebrities. According to Facebook’s global security chief Antigone Davis, the company will “remove all profiles, pages, groups or events dedicated to the sexualization of public figures, including celebrities, politicians and content creators.” [Including banning] sexual photoshoppers and drawings, along with any degrading content “in the process of bodily functions.”
In addition, the company will also permanently eliminate “unwanted sexualized comments and repeated attacks that sexually harass the individual.” In a company-wide blog post, Davis explained the decision, saying: “Public figures – whether politicians, journalists, celebrities or creators – use Facebook and Instagram to engage directly with their followers. We made these changes because such attacks can arm the appearance of a public figure, which is unnecessary and often unrelated to the work that these public figures represent. “
One more thing, as the popular social media platform will further ban attacks on Facebook users who pose an “increased risk of offline harm”, regardless of whether targeted posts and / or messages violate Facebook’s rules.
As we reported earlier, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg lost $ 7 billion after a long hiatus that hit much of the internet earlier this month.
