Facebook blocks terminally ill French man from livestreaming his death

Facebook said it would block a terminally ill French man from livestreaming his death, raising questions about its broadcast

Curated via Twitter from Engadget’s twitter account….

A Facebook spokesperson said the company respected Cocq’s desire to “draw attention to this complex question,” but that its rules forbade livestreaming suicide attempts and that it had taken steps to block livestreams after listening to “expert advice.

It has ramped up its suicide prevention measures for years, relying on AI and “sensitivity screens” to either block material or keep it out of sight for people who aren’t intentionally looking for it.
