Facebook has announced curbs in the Live feature following the Christchurch attacks where a gunman was able to live-stream on the platform the horrible massacre of muslims as they prayed.
Facebook will now introduce a ‘one strike’ policy banning those who violate the new Facebook live rules.
In a statement, Facebook said that anyone sharing “violating content” like a statement from a terrorist group without context would be blocked from using Facebook Live for a set period, such as 30 days.
The company will also extend these new restrictions to other areas of the platform in the coming weeks, including to advertisers.
In March the gunman live-streamed the New Zealand attacks where 51 people died.
The announcement comes ahead of a summit in New Zealand aimed to co-ordinate international efforts to stop social media being used to organise and promote terrorism.
The summit is hosted by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron.
Political leaders from Europe, Canada and the Middle East will meet senior representatives from companies such as Facebook, Google and Twitter, who will issue a joint “call to action” to cooperate on “transparent, specific measures” to eliminate terrorist material.
