Announced on Tuesday, the company will implement a "one-time strike" policy that will prohibit anyone who violates the standards of the social network community from using Facebook Live.
Users who violate the most serious rules of the network will be prohibited from using Live for a certain period of time, starting from their first offense. An example of an offense is a user who "shares a link to a statement of a terrorist group without context".
Guy Rosen, Vice President of Integrity of Facebook, said in the blog that the company's goal was to "minimize the risk of abuse on Live while allowing users to use Live live every day ".
Rosen said these restrictions will be extended to other areas of the platform over the next few weeks, starting with the restriction barring users from placing ads.
Previously, Facebook had simply removed content that violated its community standards. If this person continued posting raping content, they would be stuck on the platform for a while. Some have been totally banned.
The restrictions apply to according to an updated definition in , which has seen the ban of many controversial personalities, including Alex Jones, the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, Milo Yiannopoulos and others.
In addition to these new live broadcast restrictions, Facebook has also declared investing in research to prevent incidents such as the rapid spread of the video shooter in Christchurch, which has been modified to avoid detection and allow remail.
The company will invest in a $ 7.5 million partnership with three universities: the University of Maryland, Cornell University and the University of California, Berkeley.
The money will go in search for better detection of images, video and audio handled, which could also help handle problems such as deepfakes.

Some eagles are too radical to be confined by the heteronormous monogamy of birds.
Consider this "polyamorous" family of pioneers of the bald eagle, featuring two male eagles, Value I and Value II, and a female, Starr, located in southern Illinois, near the upper Mississippi.
While some people have been following the non-traditional family for years, the Stewards of Upper Mississippi River Ridge, a non-profit educational association dedicated to the region, has just released a new live feed of the Eagles family for the season. nesting.
To be clear, the family of eagles is not representative of a traditional polyamorous group in the human sense. The group does not live in Brooklyn and does not seek a partner on Eagle Tinder.
The three adult eagles occupy three newly hatched eagle chicks. Parental responsibilities are fairly well distributed. Eagle parents take shift work taking care of the eagle chicks. This does not mean that everything is harmonious at home – eagles sometimes push other eagles, passively-aggressive, to do their part.
"During a shift at the nest, the replacement adult will land in the nest and encourage the incubator to assume its duties," said the US president. Fisheries and Wildlife Service in a statement. "If the nudging does not work, more aggressive movements such as walking on the feathers of the tail or on the back of the relentless incubator are performed." "There is no movement, the relay snuggles up against the incubator and waits for a change in attitude. "
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service pointed out that while it was not so rare that more than two eagles were parents, it was strange to see such "team work" among the two evils.
"The original trio formed in 2013 after the woman chose a new mate," said the US president. Fish and Wildlife writes. "Although the original male, called Value I, was replaced by a new male, called Value II, I passed around the nest throughout the breeding season and I was supposed to to be engaged in the nest. "
Value I and Value II have lived a lot since 2013. Originally, the two male eagles nested with an eagle named Hope. Unfortunately, Hope was killed by another eagle in March 2017 and Starr, the current female nest, was introduced in September of the same year.
It's a beautiful story. Stop what you're watching by watching Netflix and watch it livestream in place.
It's a really modern family.
This will be the first time YouTube will broadcast both Coachella weekends. So far, 34 acts have been confirmed for the live stream, including YG, Billie Eilish, Kacey Musgraves, Orange Blood and The 1975. Read more …
Four people were arrested for a project involving spy cameras in 42 motel rooms in South Korea and the live broadcast of 1,600 guests unintentionally. The intended audience, however, was much larger than these four people: the website served the videos to over 4,000 members, at least some of whom paid for them.
So, report the Korean Herald, which indicates that the hidden IP cameras had lenses of one millimeter and were installed in televisions, power outlets and other seemingly harmless devices for hotel rooms. The newspaper adds that, according to the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency's cyber-investigation unit, the plan has touched 30 different motels in 10 cities nationwide.
"The police agency strictly treats criminals who post and share illegal videos because they seriously undermine human dignity," said this police unit in Seoul in a statement.
Although some details are clear, as the police have learned for the first time, we know some troubling facts. The secret filming would have taken place between November 24th of last year and March 2nd, which means that it continued until just a few weeks ago. The website in question, which the newspaper did not name, would be hosted outside the country.
Ninety-seven people would have produced more than 800 videos, generating about $ 6,200. People who run the website, if found guilty, face five years in prison.
Notably, this is not the first case of hidden cameras discovered in hotels or Airbnb – although the magnitude of this effort and the paying element of the customer actually increase the ick factor.
In the news of "Oh, it's a thing now", one of my colleagues found it strange that there is only one "motion detector" in his AirBNB in the room and voila, it is an IP camera connected to the Web. (I left at 3am, reported, the host is suspended, the colleague was refunded.) pic.twitter.com/6KgkDmEZXB

Smaller, seemingly unique examples have made the news in recent years in the United States. ABC Action News reported in October 2017, a couple staying on a Florida plane, Airbnb, discovered a camera hidden in a smoke detector located just above their bed, and January of this year a man claimed to have discovered several hidden cameras in his Miami Airbnb.
With the proliferation of unsupervised Airbnbs and smaller, cheaper cameras, this problem will not go away any time soon. So take a second look at these strange smoke detectors and clocks the next time you check in for the night, as this news that violates privacy is an obvious proof, the fact of being paranoid simply means that you are attentive.
With the announcement of Stadia, Google has revealed numerous integrations of YouTube with the gaming platform. Cloud gaming services Google's gaming platform did not rely on an extremely popular video platform. It also did not exist at a time when the speed of the internet could handle video game streaming.
YouTube users watching a game stream will be able to get into the game they were watching with a button that will be integrated with Stadia-based streaming streams. Although we do not know yet whether users will have to buy each a la carte game or subscribe to an open library with Stadia, the most played games will certainly depend on who is streaming them. Developers and promote games via popular streamers; Stages could bring this to the next level.
With such deep integrations on YouTube, it is quite possible that Stadia is changing the game culture there. For example, a feature called Crowd Play will allow fans of a YouTube streamer to jump into a game and play with the creator they were watching. The interaction with viewers is an integral part of the live video stream. Creators can use this feature very quickly, depending on the type of game they play. Successful creators generally follow very strict broadcast schedules to satisfy their fans. It is not difficult to imagine a future where it is normal for the crowd's playing time to be clearly defined.
The integration of Stadia in Google Assistant will also have significant effects on YouTube. According to Google, Stadia users will be able to ask Google Assistant for help during a particularly difficult time in the video game. The Google Assistant will automatically detect the player's position in the game and broadcast the most relevant YouTube video to help you.
The details of how Google will determine the video to display are not yet known. But, again, depending on how it works, we can see the developers associate with specific broadcasters to create these video tours, or the broadcasters will try to replicate the algorithm created by Google to broadcast these videos. Whatever the case may be, YouTube game creators are about to become much more influential.
It's clear that Google is putting the pressure on Twitch from Amazon with its Stadia-YouTube integrations. While are, by far, the largest video niche on YouTube, Twitch is still the most popular place to watch streaming video games. The platform specifically addresses players through its Twitch Partner program. Twitch currently allows viewers to They were looking across the platform with a percentage of the purchase price going to the livestreamer.
However, the issues specific to YouTube are a problem to consider. Over the years, the site has been criticized for a host of problems, including the platform . YouTube is currently trying to solve their problem. , which has long been known to send viewers into a rabbit hole filled with conspiracy theories and extremist views, regardless of what they were initially looking for. The site also yesterday with a regarding the children's content of exploitation and the predatory comments.
And then, separately, we saw with the filming in New Zealand that is a problem of its own. Passively watching videos and feeds could be a nil time. There is no doubt that many extra hours will be spent on YouTube when the current interactive game is so tightly integrated. Google must be ready to tackle these problems, which would probably be aggravated if Stadia were to be a resounding success.
Another problem to consider is how one of Stadia's features could possibly hinder what most livestreamers are looking for: video views. Game streamers may have the impression that their viewers are also playing the game at which they play their numbers in streaming. For some, it may be worth promoting games this way on Stadia.
With such heavy integrations, Google obviously depends on YouTube to help Stadia stay true to its reality. But if the platform behaves as the company wants, it could also change the ecosystem of YouTube creators.
