Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has provided an updated version of its community standards detailing offensive content that might be pulled down upon review. The revamped version includes a section on ‘dangerous organizations’ while also shedding more light on what type of nudity is accepted on the platform.
The giant social network has said that the new guidelines will go a long way in providing clarity and will be sent to users who complain about other user’s posts. The new guidelines according to Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s global head of content policy, Monika Bickert, intend to address confusion on why some takedown requests are never acted on.
The updated version runs 2,500 words, nearly three times as long as the previous version with the section on nudity particularly being more detailed than the vague talk of limitations. Under the new rules, images focusing on fully exposed buttocks will be taken down as well as images of female breasts if they include a nipple.
The restrictions also extend to digitally-created content unless the posts are being used for the educational or satirical purposes. Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has also banned text-based descriptions that vividly depict sexual acts. Posts actively showing women breastfeeding their kids will not be taken down as well as those showing post-mastectomy scarring.
Other barred content include images altered to degrade others as well as videos depicting physical bullying, posted with the intent of shaming someone. Users are also prohibited from celebrating crime they might have committed but allowed to propose the legality of the illegal activities.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s new changes have already been welcomed by the Family Online Safety Institute FOSI, one of the five groups that make up Facebook’s safety advisory board. The organization, however, raises concerns that the network is not doing enough to protect youngsters from disturbing videos. FOSI is especially taking issue with the fact that there is no way for members to add cover pages to clips that may contain graphic images.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) staff are the only people who can add interstitial warnings to stop graphic videos from auto-playing, but only after people raise complaints. Bickert, however, notes that they continue to listen to feedbacks, which should be worked on going forward.
