San Francisco. Social networking website Facebook has tightened its feature of live video streaming access after the attacks held in New Zealand mosque.  As per the sources, the company is considering into barring people who have earlier violated the community standards of the website. This step has come in response to the service being used to broadcast the ghastly attacks on the mosques in New Zealand.

The terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, claimed the lives of 50 people, when fire was opened on the worshippers. Facebook faced flak when a person live streamed these attacks. The video was viewed over 4000 times before the social media giant removed it.


Restrictions are being explored on who can and cannot use the “Facebook Live” feature of the social giant.

Chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said, “In the wake of the terrorist attack, we are taking three steps: strenghthening the rules for using Facebook Live, taking further steps to address hate on our platforms and supporting the New Zealand community”.
