Facebook finally decides to do something about people using their platform to livestream and share videos of murders, terrorist activities, and rapes...

30 day ban for the first offense.



Today we are tightening the rules that apply specifically to Live. We will now apply a ‘one strike’ policy to Live in connection with a broader range of offenses. 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. For instance, someone who shares a link to a statement from a terrorist group with no context will now be immediately blocked from using Live for a set period of time.

We plan on extending these restrictions to other areas over the coming weeks, beginning with preventing those same people from creating ads on Facebook.   

We recognize the tension between people who would prefer unfettered access to our services and the restrictions needed to keep people safe on Facebook. Our goal is to minimize risk of abuse on Live while enabling people to use Live in a positive way every day.


That's a real lesson there learned.

It's a stupid appeasement policy.


1. Users who wish to partake in the live service should have to verify their identity (e.g. something akin to a blue check mark)

2. Users who post content (without context) that is clearly promoting harmful ideologies (e.g. white supremacy, jihad, etc.) should be permabanned from the platform on the first offense.

3. Users who post criminal content (e.g. they're committing a criminal act) should be reported to their local police department, hence the first rule.


Would number 3 apply to things like drug use?  Here in Nevada, weed is legal, but federally it isn't.  Should the site be mandated to report that drug activity to federal authorities?

Sure. If you don't want to be arrested, keep that shit to yourself. Once you start airing your personal life in the open, you're no longer protected under privacy laws.

What if I share a post about how I don't consent to the content I generate being used by Facebook.
