Facebook explains what posts are not allowed on its network

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook is trying to clarify what posts, images and other content it allows on its site and why.

On Monday, the world's largest online social network explained its thinking in an update to its community standards page.

Facebook is giving users more guidance on why, for example, it might take down a post that featured sexual violence and exploitation, hate speech, criminal activity or bullying. It also explains why it not only bans terrorist and organized crime groups, but it also removes content supporting them.

The Menlo Park, California-based company says it isn't changing how it regulates the content of posts, and that while some of the guidance for users is new, "it is consistent with how we've applied our standards in the past."
