Facebook Lifts Ban On Violence

facebookFacebook has reversed its prior ban on videos showing graphic content: It announced that depictions of violence, including decapitations, would be permitted in cases where it is condemned, not celebrated.

The decision prompted immediate backlash from critics who highlighted the hypocrisy of Facebook allowing violent content, while banning breasts. (Facebook routinely censors breastfeeding photos.) Others objected to making gruesome videos available to Facebook’s young users.
