Facebook To Ban Content That Sexually Harasses Celebrities

Facebook says it will ban all content that sexually harasses celebrities.

"We've launched a new policy that helps protect people from mass harassment and intimidation from multiple accounts. We will now remove coordinated efforts of mass harassment that target individuals at heightened risk of offline harm, for example victims of violent tragedies or government dissidents — even if the content on its own wouldn't violate our policies," Facebook wrote. "We will also remove objectionable content that is considered mass harassment towards any individual on personal surfaces, such as direct messages in inbox or comments on personal profiles or posts."


This includes: Severe sexualizing content, Profiles, Pages, groups or events dedicated to sexualizing the public figure, Derogatory, sexualized photoshopped images and drawings, Attacks through negative physical descriptions that are tagged to, mention or posted on the public figure's account and Degrading content depicting individuals in the process of bodily functions.

A lot of pages will probably be disappearing from the site.
