Facebook Warns of Horror Videos With Graphic Content Notice

By Gary Cutlack on at

Facebook has started embedding a warning message at the beginning of some of the less amusing clips shared on the site, warning users what they're about to see might involve bad things happening instead of cats purring on laps in front of X Factor.

The "Warning - Graphic Video" pop-up stop clips from auto-playing, which is something, and goes on to say the video viewers are about to enjoy "can shock offend and upset" -- your cue to perhaps transfer viewing to the safety of a mobile device in the bathroom. [BBC]
