In some cases, Facebook will leave up a rule-breaking post from an elected official because it's been declared 'newsworthy and in the public interest.' Now the company is going to label such posts to make this distinction clear.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Friday the company would leave up a post by President Trump which appeared to threaten U.S. protesters. Twitter placed the same post behind a block for "glorifying violence."
'In order to be trusted, people need to know what you stand for,' Facebook's CEO said on Wednesday. As a result, expect Zuckerberg and his company to better clarify their positions on various matters over the coming year.
