    Facebook Lifts Ban On Posting Beheading Videos

    Facebook lifted a ban on posting videos showing people being decapitated, sparking outrage from groups who argue the graphic images should be censored.

    The social network site quietly began allowing users to post the bloody content after a months-long ban on the videos issued when the Family Online Safety Institute complained the images "crossed a line," the BBC reported. "Such content should be taken down," the British charity's chief executive, Will Gardner, told the station. "There is a need to raise issues happening around the world, there is that argument--but some content is horrific."

    Facebook--which allows anyone over 13 years old to have an account--said they determined that users should be free to watch and condemn the videos as long as they don't promote violence.

    The news station learned of the policy change after a reader reported a video showing a woman killed by a group of masked men in what appears to be Mexico was posted to the site and not removed.

    The clip--titled, "Challenge: Anybody can watch this video"--generated a litany of comments that claimed the content was too graphic. "Remove this video too many young innocent minds out there shouldn't see this!!!" one person wrote. "This is absolutely horrible, distasteful and needs to be removed...there are too many young minds that can see this," another commenter wrote. "I'm 23 and I'm very disturbed after seeing a couple of seconds of it."

    A spokeswoman for Facebook--which still keeps a strict policy against posting any nudity or sexually suggestive content--said the video was not removed because it did not condone the violence. "Facebook has long been a place where people turn to share their experiences, particularly when they're connected to controversial events on the ground, such as human rights abuses, acts of terrorism and other violent events," a spokeswoman told the BBC. "People are sharing this video on Facebook to condemn it. If the video were being celebrated, or the actions in it encouraged, our approach would be different."

    The spokeswoman said the social network site is considering a warning system that would alert users of the graphic content before it is viewed.

    I've never seen one on fb, only on sites we link to from here. I understand completely that people want that removed from fb, I don't want to see that shit either! But if they're gonna remove the beheading videos, perhaps they should remove something infinitely more dangerous - the hate and bullshit filled political propaganda from the party that lost the election. But that's just me. Imagine a world where people knew the truth about shit, how different it would be?
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    Well, I also don't want my facebook feed to have some frozen image of it, but yes, obviously that's the way to go. However, the fact that they're being flexible about graphic violent images and still banning nude women?

    its wrong on so many levels. I get that us here on this website may be desensitized by those types of images (i cannot watch videos of beheadings, though) but can you imagine younger people seeing those types of videos? I would think it would make them have little regard of human life. "What are you doing, John John?" "Oh nothing. Just watching this dude get his head chopped off. You know, the usual".

    I say just be conscious of who you follow and what kids are looking at online. But that should be a general guideline anyway. I dont think Facebook has a moral obligation, but that goes hand in hand with why they choose to censor one thing and not another, they cant have it both ways because then it just doesnt make sense.

    My feeling is that if you don't like breastfeeding women, you're wayyy insecure with your manhood. Oh, and that all that Bible banging conservativism has gone to your head. Oh, and you also need to shut the fuck up. I grow tired of people arguing how wrong it is...I just want to shake the shit out of them.

    Of course you can. I'm just saying that babies have to eat. You don't have to look. And sometimes moms don't have the luxury of bottle preparation before going out. I'm sure that given the choice, most women would love to do it in private, but sometimes that's not an option. And to forbid a practice when it's so easy just to look away (because it's no one's damn business to begin with) is ludicrous. That's all I'm saying.

    It's not like I'm in a lot of places with babies in the first place.

    It's gross and nothing is going to change my mind. Also, I couldn't care less when their kids eats.

    If it's my restaurant, you're not fucking doing it.

    And those God damn sit-ins are the epitome of being gross and obnoxious. That isn't done to change anyone's mind, it's to bother people who are disturbed by your gross shit, and makes me hate you more.

    Yeah, you're wrong, ron. Team Kevinvault on this one.

    Anyway, the fact that a boob is banned but a beheading is not is fucked.

    If I ever see that shit (which I doubt) I'm going to make a point of telling that mommy she's gross. Then she can have a cool story.

    Haha the mom butthurt on FB must be at epic levels right now.

    Before you smirk, the ban is for all women's breasts, not just a woman breastfeeding.

    The fact that boobs are considered more disgusting and disturbing than a beheading isn't just a 'hippy mom'issue. It's a repugnant notion.

    There are boobs other places on the internet. Don't need FB. Totally worth it for their butthurt.

    Then again, Ron, we're men, and our opinion doesn't count for shit anyway.

    But for women to have a problem with it? That makes me want to smack some bitches.
