Recently, in the name of maintaining free speech, Facebook has encountered a lot of trouble removing controversial content from its platform. Today, founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that if a politician’s post violates its policy, it will be labeled, but because of its news value, it will not be deleted.
“We will soon start tagging some of the content left to us because they are considered newsworthy, so people can know when this is the case. Just like we deal with other problematic content, we will allow people to share that Content to condemn it because it is an important part of our discussion of socially acceptable ways.” Zuckerberg wrote a lengthy article Facebook release.
However, if the position of a politician is considered to incite violence or can suppress people’s voting rights and will be deleted immediately, the rule will not apply. The person in charge of Facebook also talked about changes in advertising policies, claiming that the company will ban ads that devalue and hate people of specific races, religions, races, nationalities, sexual orientations, castes and gender identities.
