Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief operating officer promised to explore the live streaming restrictions on Facebook. The giant social media is taking this step after the New Zealand terrorist attack. Maybe very soon we can see Facebook Live Restriction.
Many people died in the terrorist attack at two mosques in the Christ Church, New Zealand. A 17-minute video of this shooting was live on Facebook. However, Facebook deleted the video after 4000 views. Also, 900 more edited videos of this live broadcast were found and deleted. But, the invested amount to do so is unspecified.
Sandberg took to an Instagram blog saying “We have heard feedback that we must do more – and we agree.”
Reportedly, two years ago, a murdered from Cleveland also live streamed his crime on Facebook. So, it was indeed a much-needed step.
Facebook COO Sheryl said, “First, we are exploring restrictions on who can go Live depending on factors such as prior Community Standard violations.”
Social Media Company is investigating with the New Zealand police. From next week, the company will also block praise, support, and representation of white nationalism and separatism on Facebook and Instagram.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was heavily insulted by New Zealand as he didn’t offer any comment over live broadcast of the attack.
In a letter to the New Zealand Herald, Sheryl Sandberg wrote, “All of us at Facebook stand with the victims, their families, the Muslim community, and all of New Zealand.”
