Meta platforms, Facebook and Instagram will overlook certain sensitive and ‘violence-inciting posts’ from Ukraine and Poland that are targeted to Russia’s Military and Vladimir Putin.
This update was per Reuters also disclosed that the platforms will allow the content provided it is in context with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis that started in late February.
Speaking about this development, a spokesperson at Meta disclosed: “As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine we have temporarily made allowances for forms of political expression that would normally violate our rules like violent speech such as ‘death to the Russian invaders.’ We still won’t allow credible calls for violence against Russian civilians.”
Investors King has also gathered that Facebook and Instagram will allow posts that are calling for Putin’s death as well as Alexander Lukashenko, president of Belarus, who is in full support and has offered aid to Russia since they invaded Ukraine. President Lukashenko has been in power since 1994 and is a strong ally of Putin.
However, while the company have given permission to this kind of post, they also disclosed that the posts will go through a review. Facebook and Instagram will only allow a post if they do not discuss other potential victims and do not contain “two indicators of credibility, such as the location or method.”

WhatsApp Introduces Dual Account Feature, Enabling Users to Sign Into Two Accounts
WhatsApp has introduced a groundbreaking innovation that promises to redefine the user experience.
This new feature allows individuals to simultaneously manage two WhatsApp accounts on a single device, eliminating the need for dual phones.
The eagerly anticipated announcement was made by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, who assured Android users that this feature will soon grace their screens.
Gone are the days of juggling multiple WhatsApp accounts, a task that often required carrying two separate devices. While tech giants like Xiaomi and Oppo had previously introduced app cloning features for multiple WhatsApp instances, WhatsApp’s integrated approach sets a new standard for seamlessness.
This innovation is poised to be a game-changer for users who navigate both personal and professional realms on this ubiquitous messaging platform.
Cumbersome login-and-logout routines and the perpetual concern of messaging from the wrong account will soon be a thing of the past, replaced by a newfound ease of multitasking.
Activating this feature is a straightforward process. Users need only navigate to the ‘Settings’ menu and select ‘Add Account.’ During setup, a second phone with a SIM card or a device supporting eSIM technology is required to unlock the full potential of multi-SIM functionality.
WhatsApp ensures that each account can have its own customized notification and privacy settings, preserving data integrity and personalization.
In addition to the dual account feature, WhatsApp recently introduced passkey support for Android, enhancing security by providing an alternative to SMS-based two-factor authentication.
This latest advancement underscores WhatsApp’s dedication to user convenience, connectivity, and digital identity security, setting the stage for a more organized and efficient way of communication.
