Facebook correctly blocked former President Trump. The company’s board of supervisors, the so-called supervisory committee, has ruled. But the platform must reconsider whether the ban is permanent. To this end, Facebook has six months.
The board of supervisors slapped on the platform: “By imposing vague and irregular punishments and then submitting the case to the board of directors, Facebook avoided liability.” Although Facebook has set up a supervisory committee correctly, it does not have to judge the most complicated issues. Hot topics will once again appear on the table of CEO Zuckerberg.
In its initial response, Facebook said it would study the decision and the company would determine which measures against Trump are “proportional.” It is understood that the former president has not yet responded to this news.
The case may return to the board of supervisors
According to the council, the former president “seriously” violated the rules of the platform with two pieces of information. He also believes that there is indeed a “persistent danger” of violence. At the same time, some argue that it is “inappropriate” to suspend execution indefinitely. This is because this option does not exist in Facebook’s policy.
Talk to reporters The council said Facebook has three options: restore Trump’s account, ban him permanently or suspend him for a period of time.Simultaneously One considering it Within six months, the time when Facebook must make its own choice, the case will be submitted to the Supervisory Board again.
Storm in the Capitol
The social network suspended Trump’s account indefinitely in early January. After the congressional storm in early January, CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to do so. Trump issued a message twice before and after the storm, encouraging protesters to enter the platform’s line of sight, thus violating the rules.
According to Zuckerberg, the risk of recurrence is too great.
