Mark Zuckerberg was shocked with the news about the killing incident, which was aired in Facebook. The Cleveland tragedy made Facebook specialists work even harder on the issues of security and prevention of similar tragedies.

Facebook’s head briefly addressed on stage the killing of a man in Cleveland that was uploaded to the social network, Mark said ‘we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this.’

Steve Stephens posted a video of the killing of Robert Godwin Sr on Monday. The next day, Stephens killed himself while being pursued by police. What Facebook or any social net should do to prevent these incidents?

The killing raised new questions about Facebook Live’s ability to police the millions of hours of video uploaded to the social network.

“We are reminded of this week by the tragedy in Cleveland,”

Facebook CEO said, and Justin Osofsky, the vice president for global operations and media partnerships, added that the corporation prioritises reports with serious safety implications for our community. According to this data, the specialists inside Facebook Live are working on making that review process go even faster. Their aim is the preventing the tragedies like Cleveland ones.

Frankly speaking, Facebook or any social net have nothing to d in such cases because of their nature, human, not technological. That is the problem, inside the brain, not inside the account.
