"Public figures, either politicians, journalists, celebrities or content creators use Facebook and Instagram to engage directly with their followers.

"We made these changes because attacks like these can weaponize a public figure's appearance, which is unnecessary and often not related to the work these public figures represent," Davis wrote.
