CYBERSPACE — “Reduce, remove, inform” is the name of the game over at Facebook and as of this week, they’ve introduced more policy designed to ensure that the content they recommend to people “is both safe and appropriate for the community,” as per their company newsroom.

At a press conference held at the company’s Menlo Park headquarters, execs announced the beefed up policies, specifically targeting and seeking to quell the spread of “posts that are inappropriate but do not go against Instagram’s Community Guidelines.”

The company announced that it would no longer recommend “borderline” material to the Instagram community at large. “For example,” they said, “a sexually suggestive post will still appear in Feed if you follow the account that posts it, but this type of content may not appear for the broader community in Explore or hashtag pages.”
