Facebook will not delete videos of violent death, abortion and self-harm, leaked guidelines show
UK TELEGRAPH reports:
Facebook is refusing to delete videos and images of "violent death", abortion and self-harm because the web giant does not want to censor its users, it has emerged.
The American social media giant also allows people to live stream attempts to self-harm because it “doesn’t want to censor or punish people in distress”.
The website's ethical guidelines, which were leaked to The Guardian, revealed that it has instructed staff not to remove controversial content which many would find deeply offensive.
