Facebook to limit weapon accessories ads viewers

75

Facebook in its new ad policies update has announced that it will stop advertising weapons accessories to its users who are under the age of 18.

The social media giant on Friday had declared that the new policy has an additional age requirement for ads selling holsters, slings, gun cases, mounted flashlights and belt accessories among others.

According to reports, the new policy will be effective from June 21.

Facebook’s policy change comes in the light of the recent mass shootings in the United States where social media was held accountable for not doing enough to limit gun violence.
