facebook, the world’s largest social network, has announced it is banning users from using its platform to share photos from third-party apps and websites, including apps that have been suspended in the past for violating terms of service.
The move is designed to stop people from using Facebook to share content from third parties.
The move comes amid growing concerns about the effect of the suspension of apps that use Facebook’s platform.
In May, the European Commission said it would fine Facebook up to $25 million (£19 million) if it did not reinstate apps that were suspended in recent months, and it later ruled in its favor.
The social network has previously banned users from sharing content with apps that are suspended in their respective countries, saying this violated its terms and conditions.
But Facebook says the decision will not be enough to stem the tide of apps suspended for violations.
The social network says it has already suspended more than 400 apps in the US alone, including many that have not been reinstated.
The new policy bans all users from making any “content or content-related activities that may be used for sharing content or content related activities,” including photo sharing, video sharing, and sharing of images and videos.
“These restrictions will apply to all of Facebook’s platforms, including Facebook News Feed, News Feed in apps, and the App Store,” Facebook said.
Facebook’s announcement comes as the social network’s social media team is preparing to launch an update to the platform that will include a new app, Facebook Messenger.
The update will be available in the coming days.
The update is being built around the platform’s new “social” component, which will allow users to see their social network profiles as well as other people’s accounts.
Facebook says it will also allow users who have previously been banned from sharing from their own accounts to continue sharing on their Facebook pages, even if the accounts have been blocked in the future.
Facebook Messenger will have features like tagging and filters that will allow it to filter out “bad” posts from users, which could include content from a third party that has been suspended.
Facebook also plans to release a “social editor” app that will enable users to make posts that are more “user-friendly” by letting users create posts that reflect their social media persona better.
The news comes amid reports that Facebook’s general counsel has suggested it will take the company to court to force it to reinstate the app that was suspended in May.
The ban on third-person photos comes after Facebook announced it had banned a number of popular social media apps in May, including Instagram, Snapchat, and Instagram Stories.
Facebook announced last week that it had suspended some popular third- party apps, including Snapchat, Snapchat Stories, and WhatsApp, following reports that these apps violated its Terms of Service.
Facebook later said it had removed all of these apps from the platform, but some of them remain in the hands of third- parties.
