Google News: Social network Facebook said on Thursday that it will not allow users to search for the word “satan” on the company’s website.
“It’s important to understand that when you type ‘santa’ or ‘sansa,’ your browser will automatically try to locate your search term,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.
“This is an automatic process that is set to occur as soon as the browser receives a query.
If the query is not located in the browser, it will return a 404 error.
If it does not, the browser will attempt to connect to your local network.
The result is that some users will experience a 404 response, and may not be able to access the search results.”
This isn’t the first time Facebook has censored search results on its site.
Back in April, Facebook was forced to remove an image of the goddess of love from its website after users complained that it was offensive to Hinduism.
