HOW WILL THE ANTICHRIST CONTROL OUR LIVES?


          I admit that I started thinking about this when I was banned from Facebook for 7 days. I was told it was because my postings went against the FB community standards. I tried to find out what the reasoning was. You are allowed to request a review, but not have a dialogue. I could not, therefore, find out how I transgressed. They did refer to 3 of my posts. 

         My first experience with Facebook censorship.





           My second experience was -
One was bad because it contained nudity- it was a picture I had found on Facebook, and REPOSTED , about a European march/ demonstration by women.  The second was bad - it showed a woman getting hit by a car while walking across a 4 lane highway while concentrating on her cell phone. It was a warning against doing so and ALSO A REPOST of a FB post..  
         The third showed a picture of X President Obama at a celebration of Che Guevara. I asked the question: why would he hide crosses when speaking at Notre Dame University so that the Muzzies wouldn’t be offended and celebrate a man who is burning in Hell.

(This is an update from November 30th, 2019
This time, I have been kicked off of Facebook for 30 days for a response to someone else’s post. This was a response to a response on someone else’s post.
Theirs - Hamas is a terrorist group and it’s about timethe Palestinians woke up to that fact.
Mine- Palestinians are a terrorist group! It’s about time Hamas woke up to that fact!!!!


Sent to FB for a review-

“What I said was the truth, whether you realize it or not. There never was a Palestinian nation, in the history of the world. The “Palestinians live in occupied Israeli territory. If you look at the news today, you will find them attacking Israel. That’s known as -terrorism.”  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_political_violence)

          Franklin Graham was also banned by Facebook, because of his Biblical hate speech.[1]

          Facebook both sells our data and subjects us to advertisements for products, and other sites. Facebook is not free! We are both customer and product. I have included the rules and community standards that you have agreed to already in order to be on Facebook, at the end of this article. You will see how much your second amendment rights mean to Facebook.

          Our biggest problem is that we have already begun ‘giving away’ our rights. When our country was founded, the vast majority of our citizens considered themselves to be Christian.  Even the Supreme Court determined, after a review of all available literature, that ours was a Christian nation. We have lost our first love. Today only about 70% of our population claim to be Christian, with only about 30% of them knowing what a Biblical Christian actually is. Thus we can see that our nation has effectively removed the Lord from our midst. We don’t have to worry about our religious freedoms being taken away; we already gave them away. 

          Our founding fathers said that the “right to keep and bear arms” was necessary because we might have to replace a tyrannical Government. The second amendment is essential to guarantee our first amendment rights. 
In the future, we will give away the rest of our rights, for the sake of convenience. If we want a phone, we will agree to abide by the phone company Community Standards. If we want access to the internet, we will agree to abide by the Community Standards of the internet company. If we want to participate on Facebook, we will agree to abide by their Community Standards. Sooner or later, all things considered, it will simply be easier and more convenient to take a mark that covers all the things we want to do. Will you be willing to put up with the inconvenience of not having the mark? Shortly thereafter, in order to function at all, it will be mandatory to have the mark.  

          200 million plus high resolution cameras are in use in China, with
facial recognition software and are used to track its citizens.  Drones are also in use. Things like online chats, book purchases, medical/dental records, supermarket purchases, bill paying records and recycling habits are all being monitored. Your Social Credit Score will be determined by these factors and others. Your ability it function, as you wish, will be determined by your Social Credit Score. Reporting your neighbors transgressions increases your score. In 2018 17.5 million airline tickets were denied due to these scores.

          Until you understand what Satan and his minions are setting up, you will never be able to understand what is going on in the world.
The primary goal of the Satanists is to set up a One World Governing Body and a single controllable religion. This is known as the New World Order and False Prophet. In order to bring this about, the major stumbling block, our country and its influence must be overcome. The rest of the world, for all intents and purposes has already been neutralized. 

          Now you can understand why the forces of evil are fighting so hard against President Trump. There is no doubt, by those who understand how God has been using President Trump as a last reprieve for the US, before he abandons us to our reprobate minds. Now you know about the abortion battle, the border crisis, the gender confusion, the leftists vitriol and violence against what is holy and decent, the New Green Deal and various sundry items and pushes that go against the foundation principles of our nation. It is obvious that there is not going to be a significant healing of our nation before the Lord ends this age. Be sure to think very carefully about your choice of loyalty, because your eternity is what you are deciding.

          The absolute destruction of the greatest nation, in the history of the world, is absolutely necessary to usher in the New World Order. Proof of the success of the Satanists is proven by the lack of mention of the United States in the description of the end times in the Bible. The Trump administration is God’s way of giving us a last minute reprieve, before He calls a halt to this dispensation. We need to do everything we can, to bring as many as we can into the Kingdom of Heaven, through the Salvation available thru Jesus, before it’s to late.

 “What types of behavior does Facebook identify as abusive?
The following behavior isn't allowed on Facebook:
·                                 Posting things that don't follow the Facebook Community Standards (ex: threats, hate speech, graphic violence).
·                                 Using Facebook to bully, impersonate or harass anyone.
·                                 Abusing Facebook features (ex: sending friend requests to many people you don't know). Overusing features could make other people feel uncomfortable or unsafe. As a result, we have limits in place to limit the rate at which you can use features. Learn more about these limits.
To learn more about our policies, please review the Facebook Community Standards.”[2]


“We've developed a set of Community Standards, which outline what is and isn't allowed on Facebook. Our Community Standards apply to content worldwide and are integral to protecting both expression and personal safety on Facebook. A wide range of objectionable or harmful content is prohibited under the Community Standards including content that promotes violent and criminal behavior, content that threatens the safety of others, hate speech, graphic content, spam and content that is harmful to minors.

INTRODUCTION
Every day, people come to Facebook to share their stories, see the world through the eyes of others, and connect with friends and causes. The conversations that happen on Facebook reflect the diversity of a community of more than two billion people communicating across countries and cultures and in dozens of languages, posting everything from text to photos and videos.
We recognize how important it is for Facebook to be a place where people feel empowered to communicate, and we take our role in keeping abuse off our service seriously. That’s why we have developed a set of Community Standards that outline what is and is not allowed on Facebook. Our Standards apply around the world to all types of content. They’re designed to be comprehensive – for example, content that might not be considered hate speech may still be removed for violating our bullying policies.
The goal of our Community Standards is to encourage expression and create a safe environment. We base our policies on input from our community and from experts in fields such as technology and public safety. Our policies are also rooted in the following principles:

Safety: People need to feel safe in order to build community. We are committed to removing content that encourages real-world harm, including (but not limited to) physical, financial, and emotional injury.

Voice: Our mission is all about embracing diverse views. We err on the side of allowing content, even when some find it objectionable, unless removing that content can prevent a specific harm. Moreover, at times we will allow content that might otherwise violate our standards if we feel that it is newsworthy, significant, or important to the public interest. We do this only after weighing the public interest value of the content against the risk of real-world harm.

Equity: Our community is global and diverse. Our policies may seem broad, but that is because we apply them consistently and fairly to a community that transcends regions, cultures, and languages. As a result, our Community Standards can sometimes appear less nuanced than we would like, leading to an outcome that is at odds with their underlying purpose. For that reason, in some cases, and when we are provided with additional context, we make a decision based on the spirit, rather than the letter, of the policy.
Everyone on Facebook plays a part in keeping the platform safe and respectful. We ask people to share responsibly and to let us know when they see something that may violate our Community Standards. We make it easy for people to report potentially violating content, including Pages, Groups, profiles, individual content, and/or comments to us for review. We also give people the option to blockunfollow, or hide people and posts, so that they can control their own experience on Facebook.
The consequences for violating our Community Standards vary depending on the severity of the violation and a person's history on the platform. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if they continue to violate our policies, we may restrict their ability to post on Facebook or disable their profile. We also may notify law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or a direct threat to public safety.
Our Community Standards, which we will continue to develop over time, serve as a guide for how to communicate on Facebook. It is in this spirit that we ask members of the Facebook community to follow these guidelines.



Violence and Criminal Behavior
1. Credible Violence
We aim to prevent potential real-world harm that may be related to content on Facebook. We understand that people commonly express disdain or disagreement by threatening or calling for violence in facetious and non-serious ways. That's why we try to consider the language, context and details in order to distinguish casual statements from content that constitutes a credible threat to public or personal safety. In determining whether a threat is credible, we may also consider additional information like a targeted person's public visibility and vulnerability. We remove content, disable accounts, and work with law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety.
2. Dangerous Individuals and Organizations
In an effort to prevent and disrupt real-world harm, we do not allow any organizations or individuals that proclaim a violent mission or are engaged in violence, from having a presence on Facebook. This includes organizations or individuals involved in the following:
Terrorist activity
Organized hate
Mass or serial murder
Human trafficking
Organized violence or criminal activity
We also remove content that expresses support or praise for groups, leaders, or individuals involved in these activities.
3. Promoting or Publicizing Crime
We prohibit people from promoting or publicizing violent crime, theft, and/or fraud because we do not want to condone this activity and because there is a risk of copycat behavior. We also do not allow people to depict criminal activity or admit to crimes they or their associates have committed. We do, however, allow people to debate or advocate for the legality of criminal activities, as well as address them in a rhetorical or satirical way.
4. Coordinating Harm
In an effort to prevent and disrupt real-world harm, we prohibit people from facilitating or coordinating future activity, criminal or otherwise, that is intended or likely to cause harm to people, businesses, or animals. People can draw attention to harmful activity that they may witness or experience as long as they do not advocate for or coordinate harm.
5. Regulated Goods
To encourage safety and compliance with common legal restrictions, we prohibit attempts by individuals, manufacturers, and retailers to purchase, sell, or trade non-medical drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, and marijuana. We also prohibit the purchase, sale, gifting, exchange, and transfer of firearms, including firearm parts or ammunition, between private individuals on Facebook. Some of these items are not regulated everywhere; however, because of the borderless nature of our community, we try to enforce our policies as consistently as possible. Firearm stores and online retailers may promote items available for sale off of our services as long as those retailers comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We allow discussions about sales of firearms and firearm parts in stores or by online retailers and advocating for changes to firearm regulation. Regulated goods that are not prohibited by our Community Standards may be subject to our more stringent Commerce Policies.

6. Suicide and Self-Injury
Policy Rationale
In an effort to promote a safe environment on Facebook, we remove content that encourages suicide or self-injury, including certain graphic imagery and real-time depictions that experts tell usmight lead others to engage in similar behavior. Self-injury is defined as the intentional and direct injuring of the body, including self-mutilation and eating disorders. We want Facebook to be a space where people can share their experiences, raise awareness about these issues, and seek support from one another, which is why we allow people to discuss suicide and self-injury.
We work with organizations around the world to provide assistance to people in distress. We also talk to experts in suicide and self-injury to help inform our policies and enforcement. For example, we have been advised by experts that we should not remove live videos of self-harm while there is an opportunity for loved ones and authorities to provide help or resources.
In contrast, we remove any content that identifies and negatively targets victims or survivors of self-injury or suicide seriously, humorously, or rhetorically.
Do not post:
Content that promotes, encourages, coordinates, or provides instructions for
Suicide
Self-injury
Eating disorders
Content that depicts graphic self-injury imagery
Except in limited situations of newsworthiness, it is against our policies to post content depicting a person who engaged in a suicide attempt or death by suicide
For the following content, we restrict content to adults over the age of 18, and include a sensitivity screen so that people are aware the content may be upsetting:
Photos or videos depicting a person's death by suicide that are determined to be newsworthy
Photos or videos depicting a person who engaged in euthanasia/assisted suicide in a medical setting
For the following content, we include a sensitivity screen so that people are aware the content may be upsetting to some:
Content that depicts older instances of self-harm such as healed cuts or other non-graphic self-injury imagery in a context of recovery
We provide resources to people who post written or verbal admissions of engagement in self injury, including:
Suicide
Euthanasia/assisted suicide
Self-harm
Eating disorders

7. Child Nudity and Sexual Exploitation of Children
Policy Rationale
We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children. When we become aware of apparent child exploitation, we report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), in compliance with applicable law. We know that sometimes people share nude images of their own children with good intentions; however, we generally remove these images because of the potential for abuse by others and to help avoid the possibility of other people reusing or misappropriating the images.
We also work with external experts, including the Facebook Safety Advisory Board, to discuss and improve our policies and enforcement around online safety issues, especially with regard to children.

8. Sexual Exploitation of Adults
Policy Rationale
We recognize the importance of Facebook as a place to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We believe this is an important part of building common understanding and community. In an effort to create space for this conversation while promoting a safe environment, we remove content that depicts, threatens or promotes sexual violence, sexual assault, or sexual exploitation, while also allowing space for victims to share their experiences. We remove content that displays, advocates for, or coordinates sexual acts with non-consenting parties or commercial sexual services, such as prostitution and escort services. We do this to avoid facilitating transactions that may involve trafficking, coercion, and non-consensual sexual acts.
To protect victims and survivors, we also remove images that depict incidents of sexual violence and intimate images shared without permission from the people pictured. For additional information on these efforts, please visit Using Technology to Protect Intimate Images and Help Build a Safe Community, as well as our guide to reporting and removing intimate images shared without your consent.
Do not post:
In instances where content consists of any form of non-consensual sexual touching, crushing, necrophilia or bestiality, including:
Depictions (including real photos/videos), or
Advocacy (including aspirational and conditional statements), or
Statements of intent, or
Calls for action, or
Participation by yourself or others to engage in any form of the above mentioned sexual acts.
Content that attempts to exploit people by any of the following:
Coercing money, favors, or images from people by threats of exposure of their naked or semi-naked photos/videos
Sharing imagery that fulfills all three of the following conditions:
Image is non-commercial or produced in a private setting
Person in the image is (near) nude, engaged in sexual activity, or in a sexual pose
Lack of consent to share the image is indicated by
Vengeful context (for example, caption, comments, or page title)
Independent sources (for example, media coverage or law enforcement record)
A visible match between the person depicted in the image and the person who has reported the content to us
The person who reported the content to us shares the same name as the person depicted in the image
Sharing imagery of people or a person focusing on sexualized areas of the body such as the breasts, groin, or buttocks (also known as creepshots or upskirts) or focusing on people engaged in sexual activity. The following elements need to be present:
the focal point is on a sexualized area of the body or sexual activity, and
the person in the image is clearly unaware
Threatening or stating an intent to share intimate imagery without consent
Soliciting intimate imagery to view or share without consent
Threatening or stating an intent to share private sexual conversations
Attempting to coordinate adult commercial sexual services or prostitution activities, such as requesting or offering or asking for rates for escort services and paid sexual fetish or domination services.
For the following content, we include a warning screen so that people are aware the content may be disturbing:
Narratives and statements that contain a depiction of non-consensual sexual touching (written or verbal) that includes details beyond mere naming or mentioning the act if:
Shared by the victim, or
Shared by a third party (other than the victim) in support of victim or condemnation of act or for general awareness to be determined by context/caption

9. Bullying
Policy Rationale
Bullying happens in many places and comes in many different forms from making statements degrading someone's character to posting inappropriate images to threatening someone. We do not tolerate bullying on Facebook because we want the members of our community to feel safe and respected.
We will remove content that purposefully targets private individuals with the intention of degrading or shaming them. We recognize that bullying can be especially harmful to minors, and our policies provide heightened protection for minors because they are more vulnerable and susceptible to online bullying. In certain instances, we require the individual who is the target of bullying to report content to us before removing it.
Our bullying policies do not apply to public figures because we want to allow discourse, which often includes critical discussion of people who are featured in the news or who have a large public audience. Discussion of public figures nonetheless must comply with our Community Standards, and we will remove content about public figures that violates other policies, including hate speech or credible threats.
Our Bullying Prevention Hub is a resource for teens, parents, and educators seeking support for issues related to bullying and other conflicts. It offers step-by-step guidance, including on how to start important conversations for people being bullied, parents who have a child being bullied or accused of bullying, and educators who have students involved with bullying.
Do not post:
Content about another private individual that reflects
Claims about sexual activity
High-severity physical descriptions
Ranking individuals on physical appearance or personality
Threats of non-consensual sexual touching

Calls for death or serious disease or disability
Videos of physical bullying or violence against minors in a fight context shared with no caption or a neutral or praising caption
In some cases, content is written in the first person but is actually posted by a different individual than the person referenced in the content. This may be done to target the person in the content with the intention of degrading or shaming them. We remove:
Content that contains the following and is reported by the individual depicted:
Claims about sexual activity
Comparisons to animals that are culturally perceived as intellectually or physically inferior or to an inanimate object
High-severity physical descriptions
Ranking individuals on physical appearance or personality
Cursing at a person
Claims about romantic involvement or sexual orientation
Negative character or ability claims
For the following content, we include a warning screen so that people are aware the content may be disturbing:
Videos of physical bullying or violence against minors in a fight context shared with a condemning caption

10. Harassment
Policy Rationale
We do not tolerate harassment on Facebook. We want people to feel safe to engage and connect with their community. Our harassment policy applies to both public and private individuals because we want to prevent unwanted or malicious contact on the platform. Context and intent matter, and we allow people to share and re-share posts if it is clear that something was shared in order to condemn or draw attention to harassment. In addition to reporting such behavior and content, we encourage people to use tools available on Facebook to help protect against it.
Do not:
Repeatedly contact a single person despite that person's clear desire and action to prevent that contact
Repeatedly contact large numbers of people with no prior solicitation
Send messages to any individual that contain
Targeted cursing aimed at an individual or group of individuals in the thread
Calls for death, serious disease or disability, or physical harm aimed at an individual or group of individuals in the thread

11. Privacy Violations and Image Privacy Rights
Policy Rationale
Privacy and the protection of personal information are fundamentally important values for Facebook. We work hard to keep your account secure and safeguard your personal information in order to protect you from potential physical or financial harm. You should not post personal or confidential information about others without first getting their consent. We also provide people ways to report imagery that they believe to be in violation of their privacy rights.
Do not post:
Content that facilitates identity theft by posting or soliciting personally identifiable information, including (but not limited to)
National identification numbers, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, or exam numbers

Actual address of the safe house (post box only is allowed),
Images of the safe house,
Identifiable city/neighborhood of the safe house, or

A minor between thirteen and eighteen years old, and the content was reported by the minor,
An adult, where the content was reported by the adult from outside the United States and applicable law may provide rights to removal
Any person who is incapacitated and unable to report the content on their own

12. Hate Speech
Policy Rationale
We do not allow hate speech on Facebook because it creates an environment of intimidation and exclusion and in some cases may promote real-world violence.
We define hate speech as a direct attack on people based on what we call protected characteristics — race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability. We also provide some protections for immigration status. We define attack as violent or dehumanizing speech, statements of inferiority, or calls for exclusion or segregation. We separate attacks into three tiers of severity, as described below.
Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others. In some cases, words or terms that might otherwise violate our standards are used self-referentially or in an empowering way. People sometimes express contempt in the context of a romantic break-up. Other times, they use gender-exclusive language to control membership in a health or positive support group, such as a breastfeeding group for women only. In all of these cases, we allow the content but expect people to clearly indicate their intent, which helps us better understand why they shared it. Where the intention is unclear, we may remove the content.
We allow humor and social commentary related to these topics. In addition, we believe that people are more responsible when they share this kind of commentary using their authentic identity.
Click here to read our Hard Questions Blog and learn more about our approach to hate speech.
Do not post:

Mocking the concept, events or victims of hate crimes even if no real person is depicted in an image
Designated dehumanizing comparisons in both written and visual form
Tier 2 attacks, which target a person or group of people who share any of the above-listed characteristics, where attack is defined as

Content that describes or negatively targets people with slurs, where slurs are defined as words commonly used as insulting labels for the above-listed characteristics.
13. Violence and Graphic Content
Policy Rationale
We remove content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others because it may create an environment that discourages participation. We allow graphic content (with some limitations) to help people raise awareness about issues. We know that people value the ability to discuss important issues like human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. We also know that people have different sensitivities with regard to graphic and violent content. For that reason, we add a warning label to especially graphic or violent content so that it is not available to people under the age of eighteen and so that people are aware of the graphic or violent nature before they click to see it.
Do not post:
Imagery of violence committed against real people or animals with comments or captions by the poster that contain
Enjoyment of suffering
Enjoyment of humiliation
Erotic response to suffering
Remarks that speak positively of the violence; or
Remarks indicating the poster is sharing footage for sensational viewing pleasure
Videos of dying, wounded, or dead people if they contain
Dismemberment unless in a medical setting
Visible internal organs
Charred or burning people unless in the context of cremation or self-immolation when that action is a form of political speech or newsworthy
Victims of cannibalism
Videos that show child abuse, defined as
Repeated kicking, beating, slapping, or stepping on by an adult or animal
Strangling or suffocating by an adult or animal
Drowning by an adult or animal
Biting through skin by an adult or animal

Tossing, rotating, or shaking of an infant (too young to stand) by their wrists/ankles, arms/legs, or neck
Videos and photos showing violent death of persons if requested by a family member using the violent death contact form available in our Help Center.

Imagery of newborn babies in an abandonment context
Photos and videos of animals in a ritual slaughter context showing dismemberment, or visible innards, or charring and burning
Imagery of visible innards in a birthing context
Imagery of non-medical foreign objects voluntarily inserted or stuck inside human through skin in religious or cultural context
14. Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity
Policy Rationale
We restrict the display of nudity or sexual activity because some people in our community may be sensitive to this type of content. Additionally, we default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the display of sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes.
Our nudity policies have become more nuanced over time. We understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons, including as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons. Where such intent is clear, we make allowances for the content. For example, while we restrict some images of female breasts that include the nipple, we allow other images, including those depicting acts of protest, women actively engaged in breast-feeding, and photos of post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures.
Do not post:
Images of
Real nude adults, where nudity is defined as
Visible genitalia except in the context of birth giving and after-birth moments or health-related situations (for example, gender confirmation surgery, examination for cancer or disease prevention/assessment)
Visible anus and/or fully nude close-ups of buttocks unless photoshopped on a public figure
Uncovered female nipples except in the context of breastfeeding, birth giving and after-birth moments, health-related situations (for example, post-mastectomy, breast cancer awareness or gender confirmation surgery) or an act of protest
Sexual activity, including
Sexual intercourse
Explicit sexual intercourse, defined as mouth or genitals entering or in contact with another person's genitals or anus, where at least one person's genitals are nude
Implied sexual intercourse, defined as mouth or genitals entering or in contact with another person's genitals or anus, even when the contact is not directly visible, except in cases of a sexual health context, advertisements, and recognized fictional images or with indicators of fiction
Implied stimulation of genitalia/anus, defined as stimulating genitalia/anus or inserting objects into genitalia/anus, even when the activity is not directly visible, except in cases of sexual health context, advertisements, and recognized fictional images or with indicators of fiction
Other sexual activities including (but not limited to)
Erections
Presence of by-products of sexual activity
Stimulating genitals or anus, even if above or under clothing
Use of sex toys, even if above or under clothing
Stimulation of naked human nipples
Squeezing female breast except in breastfeeding context
Fetish content that involves
Acts that are likely to lead to the death of a person or animal
Dismemberment
Cannibalism
Feces, urine, spit, snot, menstruation, or vomit
Digital content that meets our definition of sexual activity unless any of the following conditions exist
Content where the sexual activity (intercourse or other sexual activities) is not directly visible
Content was posted in a satirical or humorous context
Content was posted in an educational or scientific context
Imagery is not sufficiently detailed and only body shapes or contours are visible

15. Sexual Solicitation
Policy Rationale
As noted in Section 8 of our Community Standards (Sexual Exploitation of Adults), people use Facebook to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We recognize the importance of and want to allow for this discussion. We draw the line, however, when content facilitates, encourages or coordinates sexual encounters between adults. We also restrict sexually explicit language that may lead to solicitation because some audiences within our global community may be sensitive to this type of content and it may impede the ability for people to connect with their friends and the broader community.
Do not post:
Attempted coordination of or recruitment for adult sexual activities, including but not limited to:
Filmed sexual activities
Pornographic activities, strip club shows, live sex performances, erotic dances
Sexual, erotic, or tantric massages
Explicit sexual solicitation by, including but not limited to the following, offering or asking for:
Sex or sexual partners
Sex chat or conversations
Nude images
Implicit sexual solicitation, which we define as an offer or request to engage paired with at least one of the following elements, none of which violate our Community Standards on their own:
Suggestive statements, such as “looking for a good time tonight”
Sexualized slang
Sexual hints such as mentioning sexual roles, sex positions, fetish scenarios, state of arousal, act of sexual intercourse or activity (sexual penetration or self-pleasuring), commonly sexualized areas of the body such as the breasts, groin, or buttocks, state of hygiene of genitalia or buttocks
Content (hand drawn or real-world art) that may depict explicit sexual activity or suggestively posed person(s).
An offer or ask for other adult activities such as:
Commercial pornography
Nude images, unless modeling context is clear
Sexually explicit language that goes into graphic detail beyond mere reference to:
A state of sexual arousal (wetness or erection)
An act of sexual intercourse (sexual penetration, self-pleasuring or exercising fetish scenarios)

16. Cruel and Insensitive
Policy Rationale
We believe that people share and connect more freely when they do not feel targeted based on their vulnerabilities. As such, we have higher expectations for content that we call cruel and insensitive, which we define as content that targets victims of serious physical or emotional harm.
Do not post:
Content that depicts real people and mocks their implied or actual serious physical injuries, disease, or disability, non-consensual sexual touching, or premature death

17. Spam
Policy Rationale
We work hard to limit the spread of commercial spam to prevent false advertising, fraud, and security breaches, all of which detract from people's ability to share and connect. We do not allow people to use misleading or inaccurate information to collect likes, followers, or shares.
Do not:
Artificially increase distribution for financial gain
Create or use fake accounts or compromise other people’s accounts to
Impersonate or pretend to be a business, organization, public figure, or private individual
Attempt to create connections, create content, or message people
Restrict access to content by requiring people to like, share, or recommend before viewing
Encourage likes, shares, or clicks under false pretenses
Maliciously use login credentials or personally identifiable information by:
Attempting to gather or share login credentials or personally identifiable information
Using another person’s login credentials or personally identifiable information
Promise non-existent Facebook features


18. Misrepresentation
Policy Rationale
Authenticity is the cornerstone of our community. We believe that people are more accountable for their statements and actions when they use their authentic identities. That's why we require people to connect on Facebook using the name they go by in everyday life. Our authenticity policies are intended to create a safe environment where people can trust and hold one another accountable.
Do not:
Misrepresent your identity by
Using a name that does not abide by our name policies
Providing a false date of birth
Misuse our profiles product by
Creating a profile for someone under thirteen years old
Maintaining multiple accounts
Creating inauthentic profiles
Sharing an account with any other person
Creating another account after being banned from the site
Evading the registration requirements outlined in our Terms of Service
Impersonate others by
Using their images with the explicit aim to deceive people
Creating a profile assuming the persona of or speaking for another person or entity
Creating a Page assuming to be or speak for another person or entity for whom the user is not authorized to do so.
Posting imagery that is likely to deceive the public as to the content's origin, if:
The entity or an authorized representative objects to the content, and
Can establish a risk of harm to members of the public.
Engage in inauthentic behavior, which includes creating, managing, or otherwise perpetuating
Accounts that are fake
Accounts that have fake names
Accounts that participate in, or claim to engage in, coordinated inauthentic behavior, meaning that multiple accounts are working together to do any of the following:
Mislead people about the origin of content
Mislead people about the destination of links off our services (for example, providing a display URL that does not match the destination URL)
Mislead people in an attempt to encourage shares, likes, or clicks
Mislead people to conceal or enable the violation of other policies under the Community Standards

19. False News
Policy Rationale
Reducing the spread of false news on Facebook is a responsibility that we take seriously. We also recognize that this is a challenging and sensitive issue. We want to help people stay informed without stifling productive public discourse. There is also a fine line between false news and satire or opinion. For these reasons, we don't remove false news from Facebook but instead, significantly reduce its distribution by showing it lower in the News Feed.
We are working to build a more informed community and reduce the spread of false news in a number of different ways, namely by
Disrupting economic incentives for people, Pages, and domains that propagate misinformation
Using various signals, including feedback from our community, to inform a machine learning model that predicts which stories may be false
Reducing the distribution of content rated as false by independent third-party fact-checkers
Empowering people to decide for themselves what to read, trust, and share by informing them with more context and promoting news literacy
Collaborating with academics and other organizations to help solve this challenging issue

20. Memorialization
Policy Rationale
When we learn that someone has passed away, we memorializethe account by adding "Remembering" above the name on the person's profile. This makes it clear that the account is now a memorial site and protects against attempted logins and fraudulent activity. We do not remove, update, or change anything about the profile or the account because we want to respect the choices someone made while still alive. We have also made it possible for people to identify a legacy contact to look after their account after they pass away. People can let us know in advance if they want their account permanently deleted when they die. We may delete profiles when the next of kin tells us that the person who passed would have preferred that we delete the account rather than memorialize it. Visit Hard Questions for more information about our memorialization policy and process.
Once we become aware that a person has passed away:
Their account is secured and memorialized by adding “Remembering” above the name on the person's profile. The profile or account is not updated or otherwise changed in any way
Immediate family members can also request that we remove a loved one’s profile

21. Intellectual Property
Policy Rationale
Facebook takes intellectual property rights seriously and believes they are important to promoting expression, creativity, and innovation in our community. You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. However, before sharing content on Facebook, please be sure you have the right to do so. We ask that you respect other people’s copyrights, trademarks, and other legal rights. We are committed to helping people and organizations promote and protect their intellectual property rights. Facebook’s Terms of Service do not allow people to post content that violates someone else’s intellectual property rights, including copyright and trademark. We publish information about the intellectual property reports we receive in our bi-annual Transparency Report, which can be accessed at https://transparency.facebook.com/
Upon receipt of a report from a rights holder or an authorized representative, we will remove or restrict content that engages in:
Copyright infringement
Trademark infringement


22. User Requests
We comply with:
User requests for removal of their own account
Requests for removal of a deceased user’s account from a verified immediate family member or executor
Requests for removal of an incapacitated user’s account from an authorized representative

23. Additional Protection of Minors
We comply with:
Requests for removal of an underage account
Government requests for removal of child abuse imagery depicting, for example, beating by an adult or strangling or suffocating by an adult
Legal guardian requests for removal of attacks on unintentionally famous minors[3]
