Facebook Announces New Policy to Crackdown on Manipulated Media 

Facebook is officially starting to implement their policy to stop the spreading of misleading fake videos. According to Facebook they will be removing content based on the following: 

  • It has been edited – beyond adjustments for clarity or quality – in ways that aren’t apparent to an average person and would likely mislead someone into thinking that a subject of the video said words that they did not actually say. And:

  • It is the product of artificial intelligence or machine learning that merges, replaces or superimposes content onto a video, making it appear to be authentic.” 


YouTube Implements New Restrictions on Data Collected from Videos Aimed at Children

We will also stop serving personalized ads on this content entirely, and some features will no longer be available on this type of content, like comments and notifications.”
