Facebook says it's allowing public figures with verified accounts to start live audio rooms and encourage anybody else to talk. A handful of podcasts will be available to people from the U.S. initially and the business intends to add more down the line.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg, that has appeared on the video streaming app Clubhouse in the past, hosted his own live audio room on his Facebook page last week.
"Live Audio Rooms and podcasts rolling out from the US is only the start of our music journey," composed Fidji Simo, head of the Facebook program, in a blog article Monday. "Looking forward, we're working with founders who'll use our sound tools to further develop and launch Soundbites -- short-form, creative audio clips."
Facebook, that declared its audio plans to push audio streams in April, states its rules apply to live audio and podcasts and everyone can report offending substance.
"In our broader integrity and safety work and the resources we've assembled for proactively and automatically identifying harmful content are excellent building blocks, but we aim to accommodate tech and procedures as we learn more," the company said in a statement.
The business states it may also retain live music after it is no longer reside to apply its policies, which is performed both by individual moderators and machine learning.
