A half has decided to have a real battle with the home addresses shared on the platform facebook We’re talking specifically about the recommendations to remove the ability to enter your addresses, even if they’re publicly available, as reported on the pages of Engadget and taken from The edge It has been a year since the request of theSupervisory Board Facebook has come to the fore because of its problems with the phenomenon of doxxing, or sharing private information in public.
It must be said that both Facebook and Instagram don’t allow users to share someone’s residential addresses publicly, but the problem arose for posts that talked about already public information. According to Meta, this was allowed in the event that five or more news sources had talked about it publicly, but now, as confirmed, by the end of the year everything will be ready and it will no longer be possible to share such private information. .
Below is Meta’s statement on the matter, reported on the pages of The Verge:
As the Board of Trustees points out in this recommendation, removing the publicly available private address exception may limit the availability of this information on Facebook and Instagram where it is already available elsewhere. In any case, we recognize that implementing such advice can strengthen the privacy protections of our platforms.
The company also confirmed that it is re-evaluating its response to photos that include pictures of the exterior of private apartments, explaining that if this is the hinge of news, they will not be removed unless they are used to stage protests against residents of organize the apartments. There was also talk of how users can share their addressand will not follow the recommendation to allow re-sharing by others either.
