Facebook will allow it as long as the content isn't posted in a celebratory manner

Facebook says posting videos with graphic violence is OK as long as they're shared to condemn the acts -- not celebrate them. 

According to a report from NBC News, Facebook will allow its users to post photos and videos that show graphic violence once again as long as they're not doing so because they actually enjoy the content. It must be displayed in a way that "condemns" the gory content. 

Facebook had previously banned such content earlier this year after many complaints on the site. 

"Facebook has long been a place where people turn to share their experiences, particularly when they're connected to controversial events on the ground, such as human rights abuses, acts of terrorism and other violent events," said Facebook. "People share videos of these events on Facebook to condemn them. If they were being celebrated, or the actions in them encouraged, our approach would be different."

It looks like Facebook is opening up a lot lately when it comes to previous restrictions. For example, the social giant lifted a privacy feature that prevented minors under the age of 18 from sharing Facebook photos or posts with the public (the previous ban only allowed them to share content with friends and friends of friends).
