The video livestreamed Monday evening showed Wuttisan Wongtalay, 20, killing his daughter by hanging her at an abandoned hotel before killing himself.
The Thai case came less than two weeks after a man in Cleveland, Ohio, posted on Facebook a video of himself shooting a man to death.
Facebook has been seeking ways to quickly block videos after a series of gruesome events were livestreamed on the site, including murder and sexual assault.
PHUKET, Thailand — The funeral was held Saturday for an 11-month-old Thai girl who was killed by her father in a video broadcast live on Facebook before he then hanged himself.
Friends and family had to support her grieving mother, 21-year-old Chiranut Trairat, as she stood crying at the graveside.

Thai man transmission baby daughter’s kill live on Facebook
REUTERS/Sooppharoek Teepapan BANGKOK A Thai man filmed himself killing his 11-month-old daughter in two video clips posted on Facebook before committing suicide, police said on Tuesday.
Advertisers have not identified the violent videos as a major concern.
On Tuesday a Swedish court jailed three men for the rape of a woman that was broadcast live on Facebook.
“We will not be able to press charges against Facebook, because Facebook is the service provider and they acted according to their protocol when we sent our request.
“We contacted Facebook today and Facebook removed the videos,” ministry spokesman Somsak Khaosuwan told Reuters, adding that the government would take no action against the company.
Man Facebook kill of his baby daughter in Thailand
A Thai man broadcast a video of himself killing his baby daughter on Facebook then committing suicide, with the content reportedly being available to view for 24 hours before being taken down.
Britain’s BBC flagged the content to YouTube and it was taken down within 15 minutes, a spokesperson for Google told CNBC.
Users could view the video of the murder on Wongtalay’s Facebook page for 24 hours from Monday before it was taken down around 5 p.m. Bangkok, according to Reuters.
The footage showed Wuttisan Wongtalay hanging his daughter by the neck from the rooftop of a building in Phuket, a popular vacation destination, Reuters reported.
The social media giant is under mounting pressure to deal with inappropriate posts.
