You will no longer be able to use Facebook Live that easily

Following the terrorist attacks on two mosques in New Zealand which were transmitted live using Facebook Live, Facebook has decided to limit the use of this function.

Whoever breaches certain rules, including the policy on dangerous groups and individuals, will no longer be allowed to use Facebook Live.  Use may be prohibited to a limited period of days according to the policies which have been breached.

One of the rules concerns those who share a link with statements by terrorist groups without any context. However, more restrictions are expected shortly.
