Facebook’s Trump ban upheld by Oversight Board, for now

Facebook’s oversight board on Wednesday upheld the company’s suspension of former President Trump. The board, however, gave the company six months to determine a ’proportionate response’ going forward. It stressed that the company inappropriately imposed an indeterminate suspension. ’We will now consider the board’s decision and determine an action that is clear and proportionate,’ Facebook said.

The suspension was improper but its fine you can keep doing it for another 6 months while you find a reason to justify it. This is almost as bad as YouTube giving itself a free speech award for banning accounts...oh wait that actually happened as well.

🍿 I love how repubs worship at the altar of billion-dollar corporations, creating the perfect environment for them to seize sheer omnipotence, then cry when it manifests. Deregulation brought us here - ya reap whatcha sow, chudz.

Facebook is not a subscription platform, the user does not has rights. It is free for user to come and go.

Public platforms should have 1st amendment protections.

This is perfectly fine. FB is a private company, and can do what they'd like with their platform. If anything, somebody should have read the FB Terms of Service to Trump before they let him go off, half-clocked, with ffs conspiracy theories, and misleading information on the site. FB has made it pretty clear that they won't tolerate dangerously misleading, inflammatory, incendiary, or knowingly false rhetoric from people in positions of authority on their site, and personally, I think they have an obligation to do so. All politicians need to be held accountable for the things they say.

Anyone know who is on this board? What other corporations they are board members of? What their qualifications were to deem them good stewards of governance censorship? And who they take their orders from?

Facebook is socialist propaganda. Democrats havecshown themselves to be socialists. Facebook should have to declare itself a Democrat party supporter.

Social media should be fact checking every post. The fact that trump got away with spouting complete lies for 4 years should be criminal

Wonder if they would’ve done something similar if he was not the outgoing president. It all remains a boot licking for the person in power. And we think that companies are partisan. They are only with themselves
