After the mass shooting incident in New Zealand some time ago, Facebook has now issued a serious policy for their platform.
Announced on Tuesday, the company will implement a ‘one strike’ policy that will limit anyone who violates the standards of the social network community from using Facebook Live.
Facebook users who violate the network’s most serious policies will be prohibited from using Facebook Live for a certain period of time.
One example of a violation is a user who “shares a link to a statement from a terrorist group without context”.

Guy Rosen, vice president of Facebook integrity, said in a blog post that the company’s goal is “to minimize the risk of Live abuse while allowing people to use Live in a positive way every day”.
Rosen said that this restriction would be extended to other areas of the platform over the next few weeks.
Before, Facebook only deleted content that violated its community standards. If that person continued to post content that violated them, they would be blocked from the entire platform for a certain period of time.
