Facebook has said they are ready to follow the new set of guidelines. But the company needs time to address some issues and discuss them with the government before making any additional comments.
The Union IT Ministry has directed social media platforms, such as WhatsApp and Facebook, to implement new guidelines. These include provisions for showing the number of views on posts by the author, the number of “likes” or comments a post receives, and the original source of origin for recycled content.
The government of India has issued new guidelines for social media platforms and will take legal action against platforms that do not comply with Indian law. This could result in intermediate status being revoked from social media networks.
The Central Government is appointing a Facebook official to the platform to provide content in India. The social media company is also working hard to comply with new laws and regulations.
Someone will be tasked with resolving complaints related to posts on social media, checking content, and removing posts if necessary. This applies to OTT platforms as well. It is not clear what will happen to platforms that do not comply with the guidelines.
