FACEBOOK HAS COME under heavy criticism for lifting a ban on graphically violent photographs and videos on the site.

The social network behemoth said videos showing beheadings will be allowed as long as the content is posted to condemn the acts, rather than to celebrate or promote them. However British Prime Minister David Cameron was among the critics of the decision, saying that it was irresponsible to allow the videos to be posted without a warning.

So what do you think – should Facebook allow videos which show images of graphic violence?

Poll Results:

No (2427)
