Facebook has revealed that what content you cannot post on the social network. From pictures of your naked children, pictures in which you see a female nipple except for some exception or confess a crime: none of this is allowed in Mark Zuckerberg’s RRSS.
The increase of false news, hate content and harassment carried out on social networks has led Facebook to increase control over the content published on its platform in the last year.
It became clear that an algorithm could not do all the work to eliminate or censor inappropriate content. Therefore, many companies have increased their team of human moderators, and Facebook workers have new rules to follow.
The company of Mark Zuckerberg has published a report on the platform itself explaining what content is not allowed on the network and what they should do about it when they detect it, which is usually to eliminate them.
Content Prohibited on Facebook
Let’s see what are the contents that you cannot post on Facebook:
WARNING TECH GEEKS
YOUR INFORMATION IS EXPOSED
Your location is: Princeton, NJ
Your current IP address is: 2001:4455:2f7:b700:f880:7bad:b46b:1768
You can stream and download anonymously through your PC, Mac, Android, and iPhone through IP Vanish.
Photos of naked children (including your children)
While Facebook admits that many parents share photos of their well-intentioned naked children, these images can be used inappropriately by other people.
Photos of female nipples
Only allow images where a female nipple is seen when they are invoked (for example in a manifestation), of women breastfeeding or of scarring after a mastectomy. This includes the nipples of girls older than 3 years.
Doubting the truth of a victim
Calling a liar or claiming that a victim of a tragedy is not telling the truth in exchange for money is not allowed either.
Confess a crime
You can debate the legality of criminal activities but not confess a crime.
Try to buy drugs
The purchase and sale of drugs on the platform are not allowed. This includes expressing interest in buying them or asking if a person has.
Be insensitive or cruel
If you despise real people, making fun of their physical deficiencies, illnesses, disabilities or premature death, your post will be removed.
Nothing of naked butts
You can not publish a photo of a naked ass unless it is on a public figure with photoshop.
Encourage violent behaviour due to the outcome of political elections
It is also not allowed to publish contents in which you foment violence or violent activity after political elections.
Exhibits of sexual activity
Unless it is for humorous, satirical or educational purposes.
Hate speech or incitement to hatred
Any language that initiates hatred is forbidden on Facebook, although they do allow such comments when they are humorous and social or when they try to raise awareness or educate others, always with restrictions and that the intention is clear.
These are all the content that is not allowed to post on Facebook from now on. I can say that this is a good move by the Facebook team.
What do you think about these content restrictions? Is there anything else you want them to add to this?
