Facebook introduces new policies to protect public figures

Facebook is introducing new policies to safeguard users from online bullying and harassment.  The company said it will take down mass coordinated harassment campaigns targeted at individuals at heightened risk of offline harm. It will do so even if the content people post wouldn’t normally violate its safety guidelines. Additionally, Facebook says it will remove objectionable content in whatever form it takes, be that direct messages, comments or posts. As part of the same policy, the company will remove state-linked networks that work together to silence and harass people.

Had the above policy been in place in the past, one situation where Facebook may have enforced it was when Taylor Swift’s Instagram account was bombarded with snake emoji following a dramatic breakup with Calvin Harris.

The company has also put in place new protections to safeguard public figures - politicians, journalists, celebrities or creators -  from sexual harassment and appearance shaming. To that end, it plans to remove profiles, pages and groups dedicated to sexualizing those individuals. It will also target “severe sexualizing content,” including photoshopped images and drawings.
In addition, Facebook said, it will remove unwanted sexualized commentary and repeated content that is sexually harassing.

Facebook’s announcement of the expanded anti-harassment policy comes after years of critics charging that the company doesn’t do enough to curb harmful behavior and misinformation.

Ok and what about little girls and children's safety? Aren't they more important than a celebrity? :saladga:

You just gotta love how much the media skipped over the entire sex trafficking thing from the whistleblower and let them get away with it :saladga:
