Social network Facebook is the largest in the world, and though by and large the company is very good, yet this status in turn can have a negative impact on such a large and influential Corporation. The problem is that Facebook, as the largest international platform, and carries a commensurate responsibility for what is happening in General in the vastness of such a huge social network. That is why the company immediately after the start of mass protests in the United States of America started to take various measures to combat racism in Facebook.

However, as it became known yesterday, succeeding the efforts of Facebook to overcome the outbursts of social protest will go beyond the current policy of the company. And if you believe the authoritative edition of The Verge, the Corporation revealed that it has sent out recommendations to all operators groups, in order to help them more quickly and effectively to solve different “racial and social problems in the vast social network.” First and foremost it is, of course, about the mass protests, called Black Lives Matter, comprehends all the territory of America and some other countries, such as Britain.

But whatever it was, the leadership of the social network suggests that all the major community soon will have administrators and moderators, who should be responsible for protecting the rights and interests “of the discriminated or oppressed communities.” But this is only the first step. Next Facebook is going to once again review valid on the platform of the rules of conduct in relation to different groups of people. And Yes, the company is going to do it, even if it means that the company will have and even prohibit the discussion of certain topics, which in turn, naturally, a very negative effect on General freedom of speech. Nevertheless, in any case, the announcement is the clearest proof that over the past few days tensions between different groups of people has increased incredibly in connection with the death of George Floyd and the ensuing protests.

Overall, at first glance it may seem that this idea of the Corporation on the implementation of additional restrictions is the most accurate, as it will reduce the degree of aggression and negativity on the platform. But on the other hand Facebook in recent years has introduced so too many prohibitions and restrictions that very few people like. And people worry about what if this goes on, on the vast Facebook will be possible to discuss only the weather and nothing more.
