Facebook’s New Terms Allow Them to Remove Content to Avoid Legal Impacts

With the new terms of service of the widely known social media platform Facebook, they can soon be able to remove or restrict content that may have legal or regulatory impacts on their company. The new terms will be effective starting on this coming October 1, 2020.

Facebook has reportedly sent a smartphone notification to its users starting Monday evening about the said new terms which highlights the section 3.2 of their terms of service, which states:

“We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Facebook.”

According to a report released by Forbes on the first day of September this year, a Facebook spokesperson told them that the change will be global as it gives the company “more flexibility” to change its services. It is also for them to be able to continue to operate in response to “potential regulation or legal action.”

To see to it that you are using the platform right and that you are not making any violations in using their services, better read Facebook’s entire new Terms of Service with understanding. You can find the the terms here.
