It looks like Facebook is taking freedom of allowing you to share anything on its social network a little too seriously, after allowing teenagers aged 13 to 17 to share personal status to the public and even allowing anyone to follow these youths so they can see everything that they share, Facebook has decided to change its terms to allow users to post and share gory videos of people getting beheaded.
Back in May, Facebook issued a temporary ban for these videos, following some complaints received on a video of masked men beheading a woman. After reviewing things, Facebook has decided to lift the band, allowing users to watch and condemn such videos. However, according to BBC News, Facebook is aware that some users do not want to see such content and will launch better controls for users in the future, allowing them to filter what they see – a warning in advance that the image they are about to see contains graphic content, perhaps.
Maybe it’s because I’m a parent now and my toddler has figured out how to work the Facebook app, I think these videos will have a very damaging impact in one’s mind. If you’re a squeamish person like me or have a geeky kid, it’s time to start hiding friends who love to share such videos – just edit the settings of your News Feed, and select people whose posts you want hidden from your wall.
