It is often seen that many users on social media make and share memes of Bollywood stars, cricketers and politicians. Now making such jokes can be heavy on people.
Facebook’s Global Safety Head Antigone Davis said in a blog post that users who tarnish people’s image and harass online will be dealt with strictly. The company has highlighted the difference between a public figure and an individual by making changes in the policy, so that freedom of expression can be properly implemented.

Facebook will remove posts that target people collectively. Along with this, the rules for sending direct messages to the inbox will also be changed. The company will make the comments on the profile and post secure. Facebook says it will list celebrities and celebrities to protect them from online harassment.
