Facebook to start labeling posts of politicians who violate their policies

Facebook has revealed some major policy changes following internal criticism and weeks of rising ad deportation. CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Friday that Facebook will begin labeling certain posts that violate its policies, but the company has decided to leave because it is considered Newsworthy.

"Watching politicians' speeches is often in the public interest, as well as news outlets reporting what a politician has said. We think people can see themselves on their platforms," ​​Zuckerberg said. "We will soon start labeling some of the things that remain because this is supposed to be a newspaper so that people know when it will happen." However, he added, "there is nothing new about the incitement of violence or the suppression of voting."

Alex Heath says it's "big, big variations" for Facebook, and the company now takes a similar approach to Twitter, which also labeled tweets that violate its policies, but are considered new. President Trump has added a number of posts in recent weeks, tweeting that Twitter has violated its norms in glorifying violence, "when the robbery begins, the firing begins." The same post came from a Facebook backlash.

Facebook now declares that it "prohibits a widespread hate content in ads" that includes people with identity or immigration status as "a certain race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender." "A threat to physical safety, health or the survival of others." It also prohibits advertising referring to immigrants, immigrants, refugees and refugees as "inferior, or expressing contempt, dismissal or disgust." Facebook has faced a boycott of advertising from companies calling for more action against hate speech.
