Facebook might place restrictions on who can stream live video

Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said on Friday the company was looking to place restrictions on who can go live on its platform based on certain criteria in the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre.

The company will monitor who can go “Live” on Facebook depending on factors such as prior community standard violations, Sandberg said in a blog post.

A lone gunman killed 50 people at two mosques in New Zealand on March 15, while live streaming the massacre.
