Facebook also removes all child pornography, pornography, and all nude images in general.

However, in light of continued criticism about its privacy and user protection practices, Facebook has published a more detailed document that can be accessed from the website.

From this point forward, if Facebook deletes a post for any of the above reasons, the person who posted the content will be notified and given a chance to ask for a second review.

This will lead to a review by our team (always by a person), typically within 24 hours. Rather than overhaul the standards-which have gotten Facebook into a good deal of trouble over the years-the company has instead chosen to update the publicly available version with a greater level of explanation.

Other banned topics include anything (or anyone) who's promoting or publicizing crime or trying to coordinate harm. Translated into over 40 languages, the rules apply to all the nations and services, including Instagram the platform operates in. "Second, providing these details makes it easier for everyone, including experts in different fields, to give us feedback so that we can improve the guidelines-and the decisions we make-over time", Monika Bickert, Facebook's head of global content policy, said in a company blog post. "We provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing, but we don't share information that personally identifies you". This is our way of saying these things are not tolerated. We receive millions of reports every week, and automation helps us to route those reports to the right content reviewer.

'Respecting Intellectual Property' prevents the circulation of content that breaches someone else's intellectual property rights, including copyright and trademark.

Public figures also feature in the following section, which is dedicated to objectionable content, in particular adult nudity and sexual activity.

She goes on to acknowledge that Facebook's enforcement isn't ideal, and outlines the measures being taken to improve it, such as deploying AI, and increasing the number of content reviewers by 40 per cent over the past year, to 7,500. For example, videos of people affected by cannibalism, is generally not allowed, but these videos allowed if a warning appears, and the patient "is in a medical situation".

He was named co-MVP along with Jones. "We had the first offense playing against the first defense", Saban said. But since this might not be decided until September, it's impossible to predict what might happen.

For example, Facebook says it won't allow hate speech about "protected characteristics".

The social network has been caught up in a whirlwind of controversy since the start of the year. Its CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently faced two days of questioning by Congress over the data leak row. In March, the United Nations blamed Facebook for spreading hatred of the Rohingya minority. But despite its vocal aversion to the spread of fake news, the company won't remove misinformation because this could be construed as "stifling productive public discourse", while there is also a "fine line between false news and satire or opinion", the document states. More importantly, the company is working on a new appeals process for reported content. It conducts weekly audits to review its decisions but recognizes mistakes are inevitable.

Facebook, like Twitter Inc. and Google's YouTube, has historically put the onus on its users to flag content that its moderators need to look at.

"In some cases, we make mistakes because our policies are not sufficiently clear to our content reviewers; when that's the case, we work to fill those gaps", she wrote. If the removal was done by mistake, the user will be notified of the same and the post will be restored.

Facebook has for the first time published its Community Standards that dictate what its nearly 2 billion users can and can't post on the site. Bickert told reporters at Facebook's Menlo Park headquarters last week she fears terrorist or hate groups could game the rulebook so their posts avoid detection by moderators, but said transparency outweighs those concerns. "This is not a self-congratulatory exercise".

We want to hear from you.

Facebook says it is also launching a Community Standards Forum next month that will include a series of public events in the US, Germany, France, the UK, India, Singapore and other countries to get user feedback on its content guidelines.
