What action is taken by FB?
Facebook has started to ban pages and FB accounts of people and organizations which are involved in spreading information which is fake or encourages hate and promotes violence through its social media platform.
The list of banned people includes many political activists like,
- Profile of Indian origin Dhruv Rathi, who has around 1.7million youtube subscribers and 5.5lakh FB followers, who discussed on controversial political issues.
- Other Profile of Louis Farrakhan who is the leader of US-based Nation of Islam and was banned for preaching black separatism and making anti-Semitic remarks.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
