The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland is set to police video content on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. That will begin in September 2020 in a new set of proposals before Government.
As Facebook is based in Ireland, the BAI would be responsible for its video content throughout the EU.
The BAI proposals outline rules on age verification, a complaints procedure and an Online Safety Commissioner to form part of its increased regulatory role.
The Sunday Independent is reporting that the BAI wants to become an enlarged media commission to enforce European rules.
Photographs and online comments would not come under the BAI remit of moderated content.
