Facebook will now label posts that violate its rules but are still considered "newsworthy."

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of the social media giant, said in a Facebook post on Friday that people should be able to view content "that would otherwise violate our policies if the public interest value outweighs the risk of harm.

" He explained that the decision was made with consideration of how news organizations report what a politician says and stressed his belief that users should have the ability to see their statements on Facebook.

"We will soon start labeling some of the content we leave up because it is deemed newsworthy, so people can know when this is the case," Zuckerberg said. "We'll allow people to share this content to condemn it, just like we do with other problematic content, because this is an important part of how we discuss what's acceptable in our society — but we'll add a prompt to tell people that the content they're sharing may violate our policies."

Still, Zuckerberg warned that his company will draw the line, even for politicians or government officials, on posts that incite "violence or suppresses voting." That sort of content will be removed, he said.

The crackdown by Facebook, which has about 2.6 billion active users, is the latest move by a social media platform to police rule-breaking or otherwise controversial material in their space. Twitter recently began to affix fact-checking and warning labels to tweets by President Trump, stirring outrage among his allies. Frustrated with a number of high-profile suspensions on Twitter, conservatives have begun to flock to a competitor known as Parler.

Facebook is also expanding what it views as hateful content in ads, a move that comes as a slew of companies, including Verizon and Unilever, have joined what is being called the "Stop Hate for Profit" boycott, pulling their advertising from the social media platform and others over its perceived unwillingness to address "hate speech" issues.

"Specifically, we're expanding our ads policy to prohibit claims that people from a specific race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, caste, sexual orientation, gender identity or immigration status are a threat to the physical safety, health or survival of others," Zuckerberg said. "We're also expanding our policies to better protect immigrants, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers from ads suggesting these groups are inferior or expressing contempt, dismissal or disgust directed at them."

In addition, he announced that Facebook will ban all content that misinforms readers on "when or how they can vote." Zuckerberg said the new policies are partly motivated by the company's desire to be an ally for those fighting against racial injustice.

This chicken was found along the side of a highway by a volunteer at Lancaster Farm Sanctuary. After taking a look at her wounds, the sanctuary knew that she had been out there in the cold for at least a couple of days.

“She was already scabby and festering. She could barely hold her head up anymore. And although it must’ve been incredibly painful, it was the luckiest day of her life,” said the sanctuary.

“Thankfully our local animal hospital was willing to see her for an emergency visit first thing this morning when they opened,” said the sanctuary.

The animal hospital discovered that she suffered serious wounds including a broken leg and a major puncture to the chest. Although it will take time for her leg to heal, the veterinarians reassured the sanctuary that the mere fact that she is choosing to move it and is starting to put a little bit of weight on it is a good sign!

“We left her there for the day so they could anesthetize her and perform surgery. We have named her Val,” the sanctuary added.

The reality of life for animals on factory farms is gruesome, to say the least. Thousands of animals are kept in cramped, filthy conditions for the duration of their lives, many of whom reach the slaughterhouse too sick to even stand. Chickens are highly intelligent, sentient beings, and keeping them in these conditions is inhumane. Thankfully, there are many chicken and egg substitutes that are not only delicious but free of all cruelty to animals. When you have a truly better option… why bother with anything else?

Lancaster Farm Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit farmed animal sanctuary. They’re on a mission to rescue farmed animals and provide them sanctuary; inspiring humans to live with compassion and respect. If you would like to help, you can donate here. Your donation will directly help fund special projects and expansion efforts like preparing the property to take in more animals and improving the grounds and barn for our existing residents.

You can keep up with Val and the other rescues on Instagram and TikTok!
