Facebook to change rules on attacking public figures on its platforms

The social media company, which allows more critical commentary of public figures than of private individuals, says it is changing its approach on the harassment of journalists and “Human rights defenders”, who it says are in the public eye due to their work rather than their public personas.

How Facebook, which has about 2.8 billion monthly active users, treats public figures and content posted by or about those figures has been an area of intense debate.
