Facebook has updated its rules for posting content. Check them out
Facebook clarify its policy on real names, offering something in response to complaints that the social network discriminating users who have chosen to use its official name online, or have names from Facebook have considered ineligible.
In the page “Community standards of Facebook”, the company states how to choose which content is removed from the social network and explains how it responds to government requests for information.
Facebook states that users do not have to register with their real names, but actually could use “authentic identity”.
Monica Bikert, head of global product policy on Facebook, told ReCode, that there was “a lot of confusion from people who thought that we like to use the data from their driver’s licenses.” Bikert says this is not an exact interpretation. ” We want people to communicate using their real name, which used in real life,” she said.
In addition to its new policy on real names, Facebook explained what qualifies for hate, adding text, which expressly permits satire, humor and social commentary related to sensitive topics. The new guidelines also allow users to include hate speech or hate speech quotations, which are usually removed.
From Facebook say they have added new elements to its “Community Guidelines” – the company just has updated the text, making it more comprehensive in order to explain existing policies.
There is a new section in “Community standards”, dedicated to the sexual abuse and exploitation. Any “sexual content involving minors, threats sharing intimate photos and ads for sexual services” does not comply with the guidelines, along with photographs or video depicting incidents of sexual violence.
Also, Facebook will now permit the publication of “artistic nudity.” This includes “photos, paintings and other art, which can display nudity”.
Another new section describes in detail what happens when a member dies. Policy remains the same as before: if there is evidence of death, the profile can be celebrated, but is deleted only if a family member requests it.
According Recode, the process of building these universal rules very time consuming. The latest update has taken a year to develop, write and make fine adjustments.
