Facebook may curb some live video after NZ attack

Facebook has announced that it is considering placing some restrictions on users' ability to broadcast live video on the platform, in the wake of New Zealand's Christchurch massacre.

The gunman had live streamed the killing of 50 people on the social media platform.

Thousands attended this memorial service on Friday (March 29).

Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said in a written statement that the company is now considering restrictions that would depend on factors, including whether a user as previously violated Facebook's community standards, a code of conduct which governs what people can and cannot post.

But it's not clear if the Christchurch gunman had previous violations on their record.

Facebook has reportedly declined to divulge that information, due to ongoing police efforts.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER SCOTT MORRISON, SAYING: "They have a responsibility." Facebook's announcement comes as Australia considers a new law that would put social media executives like Sandberg behind bars -- up to three years in prison -- if their companies fail to quickly remove violent material.

The companies would also be fined a whopping 10 percent of their global revenue under the proposed legislation.

Earlier this week, Facebook banned white supremacist material from its services.

The shootings at two mosques in New Zealand were carried out by a suspected white supremacist.
