Facebook Bans White Nationalism, Separatism Content From Its Platforms
The company said these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups
Facebook announced Wednesday that it intends to ban content that glorifies white nationalism and separatism, a major policy shift that will begin next week.
"It's clear that these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups and have no place on our services," the company said in a statement.
Facebook had already banned white supremacy but it left a loophole which civil rights groups said promoted racism and hate. The company said it had allowed expressions of white nationalism and separatism "because we were thinking about broader concepts of nationalism and separatism – things like American pride."
