Facebook will display warnings when violent videos




Facebook has begun showing warn violent videos, the site has confirmed to the BBC. The site is infringing videos show to children under eighteen.

The Social Network last month already started rolling out the alert, says the site told the BBC. When violent videos will be a warning that the video “explicit content” contains can “shock, insult and disqualification can provide.” It is not clear if the warnings are rolled out to all users.

It is also not clear if Facebook will display the warning and children will deny access to videos. It may be that Facebook rely on reports from users, which can indicate whether they find a shocking video, or users have the option to specify when uploading a video or the video contains explicit images.

Many violent images may not all be placed on Facebook, when the goal is to glorify violence or when it comes to sadism. New grade movies with violent images, such as the execution of a policeman during the attacks in Paris, may from Facebook, however. Thus the social network for violence has a smoother directive than nudity; which are almost always unacceptable.
