Facebook said it would remove videos if it realised they had been edited in ways that weren't obvious to an average person, or if they misled a viewer into thinking that a person in a video said words they did not actually say.

"There are people who engage in media manipulation in order to mislead," wrote Monika Bickert, vice president of global policy management at Facebook in the blog.

So Facebook will delete all the videos and images where people used various software tools to make themselves look better in order to mislead viewers into thinking that they are beautiful? That actually sounds good.
