Facebook’s terms of service are not clear about what constitutes a “true story.”
They don’t define “stories” but they say the site is committed to a “balanced, accurate, and up-to-date depiction of human life,” and that its users are free to publish content that reflects their values.
Google’s terms for “stories,” which govern all content on its platform, do not specifically address the social network.
But it does have guidelines for its users.
They are clear: Users must use their judgment and judgment alone.
And they specify what kinds of stories Google will allow.
If a story is about a controversial issue, Google says, Google is free to “disagree” with that opinion, but not “falsely attribute to the account” that account’s viewpoint.
The same goes for posts that are not about anything controversial at all.
And if a story contains “an image or other graphic,” Google says “Google does not permit such content.”
In practice, this means that the guidelines are almost entirely about how Google decides what’s true, what’s false, and what’s acceptable, according to people familiar with the matter.
But the terms are not written in stone, and Google and Facebook often work in concert.
Facebook and Google have not publicly announced a new agreement, but they have signaled that they have reached an agreement that would address the problem of content that is too controversial to share.
Facebook has said that the terms it is working on include an “opt-out” section that would give users a way to opt out of posting controversial material, as well as a “redirect” section for those who choose to share content that “does not reflect their values.”
Google has said it is trying to address the issue of controversial material on its own, and that it is not currently planning to change its policies.
As the companies battle for the future of social media, they are also trying to understand the problem and make decisions about how to tackle it.
And some companies are making moves to limit the scope of the content that they allow.
Facebook announced in August that it would no longer allow users to post content that includes images, videos, and other types of copyrighted content.
Twitter also plans to begin removing videos that are deemed “unacceptable” by the company.
The stakes are high, because they are a big part of the future.
Facebook and Twitter, for example, are trying to grow their user base and attract new users, but as social networks grow, they will have to decide how much of their content they can share and when.
Facebook’s recent efforts to reach out to women and minorities and get them to create posts have come with backlash, especially from conservatives, who are not happy that they are being pushed to the side.
Google said it had a similar policy change in place for the past two years, and Facebook said it was working to remove content that was too controversial.
But its policies could be different this time around.
