Facebook OK with Beheading Videos
But only if people criticize the video. CNN:
Facebook (FB, Fortune 500) removed the reported videos and said it was reviewing its policy on this type of graphic content.
Now the company has relaxed its stance. It will allow violent content such as beheadings to be published, provided the intent is to raise awareness rather than celebrate violence.
Facebook’s user conditions prohibit photos or videos that “glorify violence or attack an individual or group.”
A spokesperson for Facebook said it will allow users to post violent videos that appear to condemn the actions depicted.
“If the video were being celebrated, or the actions in it encouraged, our approach would be different,” a spokesperson told CNNMoney.
Porn is still against their rules, however. They do have standards.
