Facebook to flag all rule-breaking posts from politicians

Jun 27, 2020 14:39 IST

Facebook has announced that the company will put warning labels on all "newsworthy" posts from politicians that break its rules. The reversal of policy comes as more brands pledge to stop advertising on the social network until it does more to curb hate speech and harmful content. Under its new policies, Facebook will ban ads that claim people from a specific race, ethnicity, nationality, caste, gender, sexual orientation or immigration origin are a threat to the physical safety or health of anyone else. Facebook had previously refused to take action against US President Donald Trump posts, saying that people deserved to hear unfiltered statements from political leaders.
