Facebook to tighten live streaming rules after distribution of Christchurch massacre video”

But the White House said in a statement it is "not now in a position to join the endorsement", which leaders from countries such as Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom are expected to sign. According to her, the move "shows the Christchurch Call is being acted on".

Facebook said in a statement today it was introducing a "one-strike" policy for use of Facebook Live, temporarily restricting access for people who have faced disciplinary action for breaking the company's most serious rules anywhere on its site.

"This call to action is not just about regulation, but instead about bringing companies to the table and saying, 'You have a role too, and we have expectations of you, '" Ardern told CNN.

The social network giant, under fire from all quarters over its response to violent extremist content, will instead by represented by its vice president for global affairs and communications Nick Clegg, the former British deputy premier.

"Paris will only be the start", Ms. Ardern said in a Facebook Live post on Sunday. Social media posts in the days leading up to the attack claimed the gunman planned to livestream the attack on Facebook, though the social media firm said it found no evidence of a video.

To prevent that from happening in future, the social network's investing $7.5 million for a research partnership with the University of Maryland, Cornell University, and the University of California, Berkeley.

In an opinion piece in The New York Times over the weekend, Ardern said the Christchurch massacre underlined "a horrifying new trend" in extremist atrocities.

A number of nations are expected to sign the Christchurch Call, the Times reports, but the U.S.is not among them, with concerns about free speech.

Ardern said at the time that tech companies could do a great deal more to tackle the spread of violent content.

"People - not always intentionally - shared edited versions of the video which made it hard for our systems to detect".

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she does "not understand" why the United States has not passed stronger gun laws in the aftermath of mass shooting events.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the change addressed a key component of an initiative, known as the "Christchurch Call", she is spearheading to halt the spread of violence online.

A French presidential source said it was time for tech companies to "anticipate how their features will be exploited".

Firms themselves will be urged to come up with concrete measures, the source said, for example by reserving live broadcasting to social media accounts whose owners have been identified.
