Facebook puts restrictions on violent video clips, images

  • Social networking giant Facebook has started placing warnings over some of the videos posted by users on the site saying that the violent or disturbing videos may “shock, offend and upset” some.

    According to media reports, such videos posted on the site won’t play automatically and need to be clicked. Also, users who have identified themselves as being under the age of 18 will not have access to these flagged videos.

    The move comes after the firm has been criticized for not doing enough to rein in violent images and content on its site.
