Facebook Live Will Have Stricter Guidelines

French President Emmanuel Macron welcomes Jacinda Ardern at the Elysee Palace in Paris France

But in the past, the Silicon Valley firm has only restricted people from using Facebook Live if they had broken a rule while using the livestreaming feature, and often only after a user had repeatedly violated the company's policies.

In an opinion piece in The New York Times over the weekend, Ardern said the Christchurch massacre underlined "a horrifying new trend" in extremist atrocities.

A French presidential source said it was time for tech companies to "anticipate how their features will be exploited".

Officials from the U.S., Canada and Britain are expected to be at the summit, as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and staff from Facebook, Amazon and Google, The Washington Post reports.

French President Emmanuel Macron and New Zealand's premier Jacinda Ardern will host other world leaders and leading tech chiefs on Wednesday to launch an ambitious new initiative aimed at curbing extremism online.

"(We're) asking both nations and private corporations to make changes to prevent the posting of terrorist content online, to ensure its efficient and fast removal and to prevent the use of live-streaming as a tool for broadcasting terrorist attacks", she wrote in The Times. The social media firm said it was also funding US$7.5-million in research partnerships at three American universities to study ways to improve technology that analyzes photos and videos.

Newcastle ended the season with a resounding 4-0 win away to Fulham , sealing a 13th-place finish in the Premier League . Since I've come here the problems are there for everyone to see, we all understand what needs to improve here.

"The March 15 terrorist highlighted just how easily live-streaming can be misused for hate. Facebook has made a tangible first step to stop that act being repeated on their platform", she said.

Participants will be asked to commit to pledges to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content on social media and other online platforms. The company said they plan to extend the restrictions over the coming weeks, including to the creation of ads, but did not lay out specific plans.

The company has said it removed 1.5 million videos globally that contained footage of the attack in the first 24 hours after it occurred.

"We recognize the tension between people who would prefer unfettered access to our services and the restrictions needed to keep people safe on Facebook", Guy Rosen, Facebook's vice-president of integrity, said in the blog post.

New rules being put in place by Facebook would have prevented the Christchurch mass shooting suspect from livestreaming the massacre.

"There's no word on what the rules are, so that makes it very hard to determine whether or not posts and video content are in breach of the rules". Still, the measures likely won't go far enough to please many critics, who think Facebook should take more drastic measures like delaying Live streams.
