In a recent development, social media giant Facebook has announced that it will ban serious “sexualizing content” targeting public figures, including celebrities, politicians and creators. The guidelines come as a part of the Company’s Harassment Policy. “Public figures, whether they are politicians, journalists, celebrities or creators, use Facebook and Instagram to connect directly with their followers,” Antigone Davis, Facebook’s global head of security, said in an official statement.
“Our Bullying and Harassment Policy distinguishes between freedom of expression between public figures and private individuals and enabling public disclosure in the public eye,” Davis said in an official blogpost. This will now remove the coordinated efforts of mass Harassment that target individuals at high risk of offline losses.
The firm said it will also remove objectionable content that is considered mass harassment to any individual, such as direct messages in inboxes or comments on personal profiles or posts.
Public figures will get more security
Facebook will eliminate state-linked networks of accounts, pages and groups that are used to harass or silence people, for example a state-sponsored organization that coordinates mass postings on resident profiles. Uses closed personal groups. In addition, Facebook said it would offer more security to those who have become public figures, such as journalists and human-rights advocates.
