The social network announced Wednesday it will no longer allow its users to post pictures or videos to a post unless they are tagged in the post.
The company has been rolling out similar rules for posts from publishers in the past, and has also started rolling out more stringent rules for videos.
Facebook is expected to begin rolling out the new rules this month, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“Today we are taking steps to ensure that all posts and videos can be tagged in their posts and images,” Facebook’s vice president of global product strategy, Adam Mosseri, wrote in a blog post.
“We’re taking action now to make sure that people posting videos and pictures are able to do so and are not subject to these new restrictions.”
The company is also rolling out an updated video feature that allows users to share videos with their friends without tagging them in the video.
The company says that feature will be available by the end of this month.
