Facebook sets restrictions on livestreaming following deadly New Zealand attacks

  • Published on May 15, 2019
  • Facebook announced new restrictions on live video streaming exactly two months after the Christchurch massacre. Meanwhile, international leaders are holding a summit on curbing online hate speech and threats. CBSN contributor and Wired editor-in-chief Nick Thompson joins CBSN to discuss the potential impact of the new Facebook Live policy.

    What will Facebook do if 10 children are wearing masks and play acting in killing each other with plastic guns firing plastic pellets. Will AI be able to determine which is reality and which is fantasy. There are army training videos where nobody is really shot. There are films and tv series where actors and actresses are shooting people and blowing people up, and all the rest of it. I have a feeling that this idea is going to fall flat on it's face. Also it's not that hard to set up several fake Facebook accounts, so if Facebook bans one account, then it's easy to open another and live stream on there. I would say it's a lot harder than it sounds

  • My 2nd amendment is a right not a need

    Guess who decides what is hate speech on Facebook? It's leftists in California that work for Facebook. It's why so many people with conservative views are being banned. Time to abolish the law that Obama helped pass that protected these social media sites from being sued for violating people's free speech rights. Back then the big 3 social media sites told the government that they were just platforms for all speech and didn't censor anyone. Well they are now censoring, so the law protecting them should be abolished.

  • My 2nd amendment is a right not a need

    Censorship will be the demise of FB, Twitter and you tube. There are so many other sites similar to these on the internet that guarantee no censorship, and people are flocking to them. I no longer visit FB or twitter due to their censorship. If they violate my rights to free speech, I'll be dammed if I'm gonna support them.

    Facebook was originally called lifelog. The government found a way to censor speech. They just found some corporate puppets to push the hate speech narrative and now people are asking to be censored.

    Note: In order to perceive well enough to fix an idea from the sexual feigning services of Rudolf MacLeod prior to 1950, an extreme sexual Soulmate idea would need to be perceived. Julian Casablancas was forced to endure a damaging sexual feigning service at times, due to the Russian imposed feigning conditions hindered by perception goals, which is the equivalent of risking poison; you must truly require the extreme Soulmate Union relationship perception to be made available in order to survive the feigning service without punishment.
    Because Julian Casablancas did make mistakes, he did also earn some punishment. This, he must evaluate and figure out.
    The sexual feigning service saboteurs patterned their assignments of wrongdoing and brutality outside of the boundaries of both tolerance and the growth patterns of Amy Knorr, and synchronized the sabotage with the figuring out process that had to be completed in full.
    Due to the powerful force of feigning "The Cyclone" of Miriam and Josef, all required for Julian Casablancas to perceive feigning services was pertained to Polita Barnes thus Julian Casablancas must perceive Polita Barnes in order to finish the required work that permits sexual feigning services.
    Polita Barnes is feigning Genevieve and Amati Gucci beefed up with several other ancestral identities of Amy Knorr, bloodline Soulmate of Julian Casablancas, including Marilyn Monroe, Miriam, and the "Daphne" appearance projected for Amy Knorr after marriage plans with Julian Casablancas were dashed in 1969. Rudolf MacLeod was a silent cartoonist with alias for "Scooby Doo". Daphne and Fred were the initial vision of remaining possibility for Amy Knorr and Julian Casablancas at that time.
    Because Polita Barnes stole the registered, published documents for the powerful Soulmate Union sexual experience of Miriam and Josef "The Cyclone", and feigns this publicly with Julian Casablancas, she could owe myself, Amy Knorr, a lot of money in a Court settlement for stealing the sexual identity of Amy Knorr's bloodline Soulmate Union perception.
    Neither the Russian underworld rule nor ignorance override Universal Law and reality in Soulmate Union relationship sexual possibility and responsibility. The biological laws of incest are not waived by any feigned and favored underworld leader's illegal immunity.
    Polita Barnes is the registered bloodline descendant of Catherine Howard, fixed twin soul of Arthur John Tudor, and Catherine the Great of Russia, Soulmate of Vladimir Putin. Julian Casablancas is her bloodline nephew.

      Said the guy whose thumbnail is that of a well known author. Who was also a well known xenophobic racist. Yeah, we can't give White supremacists an echo chamber. When they censor radical Islamists calling for jihad? Same thing. And you do have Fox News. And a host of others similar shows and podcast. We know you're trying to rebrand it. And you got caught. Btw, I can't stand liberals either.

      Definitely, the vanishing shell casings that literally never make a sound, so you have to imagine the sound casings might make as they magically impacting the ground.
      Or the surreal bodies all hiding in the corners that never turn towards the threat or run, and the bodies never make a sound after literally being shot through and through by a high velocity high caliber AK, so again you have to imagine the blood curling screams of the surreal bodies unleashing chaos.
      It's literally like having to watch a bad movie over and over again, until you just say, I can't take it anymore.
