ALL THINGS TECHNOLOGY YOU NEED TO KNOW TODAY-
Meta is the parent company of Facebook.
1.Meta will temporarily allow calls for violence against invading Russians. According to internal emails obtained by Reuters, Instagram and Facebook users in some countries will be permitted to call for violence against Russians, Russian soldiers, and political figures, in the context of the invasion of Ukraine.
*In light of the country’s invasion of Ukraine, users in countries including Russia, Ukraine, and Poland will be allowed to call for death to Russian President Vladimir Putin or Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
*Posts espousing the presidents’ death will be allowed unless they include other targets or have indicators of credibility, such as the location or method, Reuters reported.
*The decision marks a temporary change to Meta’s hate-speech policy, which traditionally has barred “threats of violence and other content that has the potential to silence others or cause harm.”
