Secret Guidelines

"After Facebook turned on the possibility of live broadcasts, there have been quite bizarre challenges. People are raping rapes, killing, police violence and much else that no serious media would have considered broadcasting, "says Brøyn.

He believes that the guidelines The Guardian has published (see bottom of the case) suggests that Facebook uses less algorithms and technology in its moderation than previously thought, writes VG.

The Guardian writes that Facebook now looks at itself as a publisher and thus needs to do more to remove hateful, hurtful and violent content. The information below has received the UK newspaper from several Facebook moderators during the past year.

Among other things, it appears that direct damage to self-harm and images of animal abuse is allowed.

  • Spells like "Someone Should Shoot Trump" should be deleted, because he is a head of state and thus in a protected category. But it might be possible to say, "To break the neck of a mega, make sure to put pressure on the middle of her neck" or "fuck off and die" because they are not seen as real threats.
  • Videos of violent deaths may not necessarily be deleted even though they are reported because they can contribute to attention on topics such as mental illness.
  • Some images of violence or bullying against children do not have to be deleted, unless they contain a sadistic or "celebrating" element.
  • Images of animal abuse can be shared - only extremely outrageous images must be removed. At the same time, videos of animal abuse are prohibited.
  • All handmade art that shows naked persons or sexual activity is allowed. Digital art that shows sexual activity is not allowed.
  • Videos of abortions are allowed as long as they do not show nudity.
  • Facebook will allow people to direct their attempts at self-harm because they do not want to censor or punish people in need.
  • Anyone with more than 100,000 followers is considered a public person, which deprives them of the same protection granted to private individuals.
