Facebook to allow some graphic content
(KPLR) – Facebook under fire after its decision to lift a ban on violent videos, including beheadings.
A temporary ban on graphic content was put in place in May following complaints about videos showing people being decapitated.
Facebook removed the reported videos and started reviewing its policy.
Now, the company says it will allow the content such as beheadings to be published as long as the intent is to raise awareness and not celebrate violence.
Facebook says warnings may be displayed ahead of the graphic content.
