Facebook Restricts Live Feature In Response to New Zealand Shooting

According to Reuters, Facebook announced steps on Wednesday to temporarily block users who break its rules from broadcasting live video.

The move comes after an international outcry after a gunman killed 51 people in New Zealand last month and streamed the attack live on his page.

The tweaks to Facebook’s rules also came as the White House snubbed other world leaders for stronger measures against social media hate speech.
