When Facebook decides to make it harder for people to share stories on its platform, it needs to be more transparent about its decision

Facebook is not the only social media company that has faced criticism from users over its decision to block users from sharing videos.
The social media giant is facing similar scrutiny over its policy to block accounts for sharing video that includes nudity and violence, which has drawn criticism from many on the left and the right.
Facebook is currently in the process of updating its platform for people who want to share video.
Its chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, said on Tuesday that he has received many requests to share videos on Facebook’s platform.
In a blog post, Zuckerberg said that he was working with other companies and that he had spoken with members of Congress.
Zuckerberg also addressed the question of whether Facebook should have been able to block certain content and urged people to stay informed.
Facebook has faced some criticism over its handling of video on its service, with some users saying it has made it harder to share content on the social network.
On Tuesday, the company said that it would not block videos from users who have opted out of being tracked by Facebook’s ad network.
“We don’t have any evidence to suggest that users who opt out of the tracking feature have been significantly affected by it,” the company wrote.
Zuckerberg said he will continue to monitor the data used by Facebook to help identify and remove spam.
In an interview with CNNMoney, Zuckerberg discussed what he calls the “disaster” that he sees for his company when it comes to video.
“What’s really hard is, when you’re talking about a platform where a billion people spend an inordinate amount of time sharing videos and images, and it’s the majority of people who don’t know what to do with that content,” Zuckerberg said.
“And the people that have to spend the most time in front of the screen, or who have the least ability to consume content, the people who have a lot of money to spend on video, who have access to the most powerful platforms and tools to share it, and they’re also the people with the most exposure to content that’s coming out on Facebook, you know, they’re the ones who get to see it and you can’t control that.”
The issue of video censorship is a subject of heated debate in the U.S. Since being created in 2007, Facebook has had a long history of making videos and photos visible to the public, including through its live video capabilities.
Facebook said that some users who share videos are not seeing the videos or photos they posted.
In November, Facebook announced that it had banned several groups of people, including pro-Nazi groups, for using its video sharing service.
The company also announced that in January, it will be removing the “trending topics” section from the Facebook News Feed, a feature that allows users to create groups to discuss popular topics.
Zuckerberg has said he wants to create a video app that allows people to post their own videos, and has said that Facebook will be rolling out the feature as soon as it is ready.
“I think we are going to be making a video platform,” Zuckerberg told CNNMoney.
“The only way to do that is to get a bunch of people to write their own video content.”
