In the past year, we’ve been talking a lot about our Community Standards, the rules for what content is and isn’t permitted on Facebook. We’ve explained how they’re enforced and introduced the teams responsible for that work. Today, we’re sharing details on how these policies evolve.
Our Standards are a living set of guidelines — they must keep pace with changes happening online and in the world.

When our policies are written or updated, we share those updates on our Community Standards website.
