Facebook changes policy on ultraviolent videos
Should you be able to watch videos of people being murdered on Facebook? Apparently yes, the company said, following controversy over a pair of videos that contained extreme, graphic violence, which began making the rounds, and that the company refused to delete.
Facebook eventually relented from its stance that the videos showed the "world in which we live," saying it would "remove instances of these videos that are reported to us," while evaluating its policy -- things it outlined in a post in May.
