Facebook to Add Warnings to Videos in Your Feed With Mature Content

Facebook is working to make sure you only get the content you want in your feed, adding warning labels to graphic video content.

The move comes in the wake of the social network deciding to make videos autoplay as you scroll, meaning users could easily be subjected to content that they have no interest in seeing or that they might find disturbing.

The new measure would see videos which have been reported as graphic coming with a warning label and Facebook also says that it's working to ensure this content doesn't appear in the feeds of users under the age of 18. Presuming you told the truth about your date of birth when you signed up.

These warnings will only appear on videos uploaded directly to YouTube and won't effect links from other video sites like YouTube or Vimeo.
