The social media giant said it is introducing a "one-strike" policy, which temporarily restricts access for users that break Facebook rules.

Ardern also said prior to the ban, New Zealand had "pretty permissive gun legislation", and while she thinks guns are necessary in some instances, she felt the laws went too far.

First-time offenders will be suspended from using Live for set periods of time, the company said.

While not having Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the meeting is regrettable, "what's fundamental is for Facebook to agree to this plan", Ardern told Le Monde in an interview published Wednesday.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has welcomed the move, saying it has acted on the "Christchurch Call" for online terror material to be shut down.

France's president Emmanuel Macron and New Zealand's Prime minister Jacinda Ardern have joined forces to fight against online extremism.

Rosen said these restrictions will be extended to other areas of the platform over the next few weeks, which will begin with restricting offending users from taking out ads.

Participants will be asked to commit to pledges to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content on social media and other online platforms.

New rules being put in place by Facebook would have prevented the Christchurch mass shooting suspect from livestreaming the massacre.

Firms themselves will be urged to come up with concrete measures, the source said, for example by reserving live broadcasting to social media accounts whose owners have been identified.

"There's no word on what the rules are, so that makes it very hard to determine whether or not posts and video content are in breach of the rules".
