It’s been a tough few weeks for Facebook as they fend off charges of being insensitive to posted content containing or implying gender-based violence. In an effort to quell the negative press, Facebook has instituted new guidelines
as to what constitutes “hate speech” on the site and how it will be handled. This change in policy has been applauded by some, while being labeled as censorship by others. What are your thoughts on Facebook’s new standards? Do you believe it is a necessary step in maintaining a civil site, or is it unwarranted censorship?
