facebook: According to a recently issued statement facebook will now block users who harass celebrities on its platform. The company also introduced a new word filter with this update. Social media giant facebook crashed twice in a row in the past few days and had trouble accessing both facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram. After this situation, both a former facebook employee announced that the company was spreading false information, and the company’s blacklist, which had been kept secret for years, was leaked and it was revealed that names from Turkey were on the list.
After all this, the US tech giant continues to introduce new features by pretending nothing happened. The latest feature the company has introduced is to protect celebrities on social media.
Intimidating celebrity posts will be blocked
As part of the company’s recent updates to corporate policies, users, pages, groups, and activities that post celebrity sexual harassment are now blocked on facebook. This feature also includes blocking sexually explicit photo montages and drawings targeting celebrities.
The people who will benefit from this “protection function” are social figures, celebrities, politicians and content producers. As part of this update, unwanted or sexually explicit comments on celebrity posts will be automatically removed by facebook.
