Facebook fights bullying and harassment

US-ALSHARQIYA October 14: As part of a new update on bullying and harassment policies. The policy changes also include coordinated harassment attacks against users.
The platform said it was removing any accounts, pages, groups or events dedicated to the sexualization of public figures, including celebrities, politicians and content creators.
Antigone Davis, Facebook's head of global safety, said in a blog post that the new policy prohibits sexual images, drawings and any content that is offensive to bodily functions.
The company also indicated that it removes unwanted sexual comments about anyone, and Davis wrote in the blog: Public figures - whether they are politicians, journalists, celebrities or content creators - use our platforms to communicate directly with their followers. We've made these changes because such attacks can weaponize a public figure's appearance, which is unnecessary and often unrelated to the work these public figures represent.
The Facebook policy announcement comes after whistleblower Frances Hogan testified before Congress last week.
Last Tuesday's hearing focused on a series of reports from the Wall Street Journal that revealed that company executives were aware of the damage its platform could do to users, especially teens. Hogan is expected to testify before the British Parliament later this month.
The new update also includes new language that prohibits large and coordinated attacks on users who are at increased risk of harm offline, even if the posts or messages do not violate the company's content policies.
This update includes posts on Facebook and Instagram and direct messages sent to individuals such as government opponents or victims of violent attacks.
