Facebook's guidelines for editors has been leaked to the Guardian.
[theguardian.com...]

In one of the leaked documents, Facebook acknowledges “people use violent language to express frustration online” and feel “safe to do so” on the site.

It says: “They feel that the issue won’t come back to them and they feel indifferent towards the person they are making the threats about because of the lack of empathy created by communication via devices as opposed to face to face.


This quote sums it up better than others.
“Facebook cannot keep control of its content,” said one source. “It has grown too big, too quickly.”

I read these horrid, insensitive comments from someone but then I look at their profile and it's a nice looking family guy holding his kids. There's this disconnect from being accountable. As the article says, you don't have to look the other person in the eye.

I found this quote telling:

Anyone with more than 100,000 followers on a social media platform is designated as a public figure – which denies them the full protections given to private individuals.


Don't get popular. :)

I saw that, too, tangor, and some people may become concerned over that.

Either way, some people think they are tough when they can hide behind what they think is anonymity. Even if they realise it's not anonymous, they can still cause a great deal of frustration, disturbance and offence.

The boat has sailed, and I don;t think FB can deal with the bigger issue at stake.
