Two weeks after a crazed gunman broadcast his slaughtering 50 people in New Zealand on Facebook, the social network giant says it's putting in new restrictions on live streaming. "In the wake of the terror attack, we are taking three steps: strengthening the rules for using Facebook Live, taking further steps to address hate on our platforms, and supporting the New Zealand community".

Silicon Valley: Facebook Inc Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said on Friday the company was looking to place restrictions on who can go live on its platform based on certain criteria in the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre.

The Facebook executive said that users who have violated the site's community standards could be barred from using the live video streaming function.

"We are also investing in research to build better technology to quickly identify edited versions of violent videos and images and prevent people from re-sharing these versions", she wrote.

However, over the last three months, the social media network said: "Our conversations with members of civil society and academics who are experts in race relations around the world have confirmed that white nationalism and separatism can not be meaningfully separated from white supremacy and organised hate groups".

Later, Harper received another standing ovation as he approached the plate for his first at-bat as a Philly. Segura, another Phillies acquisition this offseason, finished the game with two hits and two runs scored.

The footage of the attack has been frequently re-edited by Facebook users "to make it more hard for our methods to obstruct it", she states.

Facebook points out that its existing policies banned white supremacy, explaining why it didn't put nationalism and separatism under the same banner. They said that while they have always included bans on the hateful treatment of others based on race, ethnicity, and religion in their policies, in recent months they have made a decision to explore broader concepts of hate. "We know there is more work to do".

Facebook and YouTube equally worked to eliminate footage of their New Zealand strikes earlier this season.

Facebook said it would also start connecting people who search for terms associated with white supremacy to an organization called Life After Hate, focused on helping people leave hate groups.
