Facebook to ban users from Live streaming if they violate community rules

Guy Rosen, Facebook's vice president of integrity, said in the blog post that the company's goal was "to minimize risk of abuse on Live while enabling people to use Live in a positive way every day".

Facebook will tighten its rules for live streaming video content on the social media platform in light of vision from the Christchurch terror attack, which was shared online millions of times.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has been under intense pressure since March when a self-described white supremacist used Facebook Live to stream his rampage at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, which left 51 people dead.

Ardern was set to join other world leaders in launching the "Christchurch Call" to curb online extremism at an worldwide meeting in Paris on Wednesday. It is also broadening the range of offences that will qualify for one-strike suspensions.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinta Ardern has refused a $5 (£2.50) bribe from a girl who reportedly asked the government to open a research lab in order to investigate mythical monsters and the supernatural.

From now on, anyone who violates our most serious policies will be restricted from using Live for set periods of time - for example 30 days - starting on their first offense. "Facebook has made a tangible first step to stop that act being repeated on their platform", she said.

In 2013, after hiding out for two years, Weiner tried to re-enter politics, this time running for mayor of New York City. Former congressman Anthony Weiner leaves federal court following his sentencing in NY in 2017.


In coming weeks, he said those blocked users will also be prevented from creating ads on Facebook.

"Dealing with the rise of manipulated media will require deep research and collaboration between industry and academia", Rosen wrote.

After much speculation, Facebook has imposed restrictions on live-streaming following the New Zealand attacks in March.

Ms Ardern said the fact that she herself inadvertently saw the video of the shootings on Facebook highlighted how available it was.

Ardern is due to lead a meeting, with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris today, that seeks to have world leaders and chiefs of tech companies sign a pledge to eliminate violent content online. "Do they wear suits?" she said in an additional handwritten note.

In an opinion piece in the New York Times on Saturday, Ardern said the "Christchurch Call" would be a voluntary framework that commits signatories to put in place specific measures to prevent the uploading of terrorist content.
