Facebook and Instagram to Restrict Alcohol and Tobacco Content

Facebook and Instagram to Restrict Alcohol and Tobacco Content A new Facebook policy will limit sales and content related to alcohol and tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.

The new policy prohibits private sales, trades and gifting of alcohol or tobacco on Facebook and Instagram, a spokeswoman told CNN.

The policy also applies to Facebook groups selling alcohol or tobacco.

The spokeswoman said the company will "use a combination of technology, human review and reports from our community to find and remove any content that violates these policies." Recently, the e-cigarette company Juul has been accused of contributing to an epidemic of teen vaping.

The company came under fire for paying popular Instagram users to promote its device.
