Facebook Oversight Board Says Trump Ban Was ‘Arbitrary,’ but Opts to Keep It

On Wednesday, the Facebook Oversight Board, which evaluates what content should be removed from the platform, endorsed the company’s ban of former President Donald Trump after the assault on the Capitol on January 6. However, it also called the indefinite Trump ban “arbitrary”.

The Facebook Oversight Board, created by the same company, said that the messages published by Trump “seriously violated the rules” of use of the social media platform, which was the reason why he was banned from Facebook and Instagram, but gave the company six months to review the indefinite suspension against the former Republican president.

For the committee, made up of 20 members, the company implemented an indefinite suspension “that is not included in its content policies” instead of applying the sanctions it has defined when an account commits a serious infraction.

“The Board insists that Facebook review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform,” noted the said the Facebook Oversight Board, who also highlighted that “it is not permissible for Facebook to keep a user off the platform for an undefined period, with no criteria for when or whether the account will be restore,” so “The Board insists that Facebook review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that apply to other users of its platform.”

After the assault on Capitol Hill, part of Big Tech, such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, decided to ban not only the accounts of the former president but also those of people who open a space for him. Such was the case of Lara Trump, whose interview with the Republican was censored from social media a few weeks ago.
