Facebook can't seem to make up its mind. A day after reports said the social networking site had decided to allow a video of a Mexican woman being beheaded to remain public, Facebook pulled the video, saying it was going to revisit its policy on such videos.

Yesterday, Facebook lifted its ban on decapitation videos, stating that, "Facebook has long been a place where people turn to share their experiences, particularly when they're connected to controversial events on the ground, such as human rights abuses, acts of terrorism and other violent events. People are sharing this video on Facebook to condemn it. If the video were being celebrated, or the actions in it encouraged, our approach would be different."

After widespread public outrage over that move, Facebook has deleted the video, but maintains that it has not reversed its policy over the controversy. Rather, the criticism has encouraged them to look more closely at their existing terms of service, to make sure that such videos are not being glorified.
