Washington, March 16: Social media giant Facebook has updated a set of standards on what is acceptable to share on its platform, a press release from the company on Monday said. Facebook’s “community standards” look to “help people understand what is acceptable to share on Facebook”, the company said in the statement. “These standards are designed to create an environment where people feel motivated and empowered to treat each other with empathy and respect.” Facebook said that it would be “providing more detail and clarity on what is and is not allowed. For example, what exactly do we mean by nudity, or what do we mean by hate speech.” The updated community standards, unveiled by the Mark Zuckerberg-founded popular social media company, broadly aim at keeping users safe, their accounts and persol information secure, encouraging respectful behaviour and protecting the users’ intellectual property.
