- Meta will allow former President Donald Trump to return to Facebook and Instagram in the coming weeks, the company announced Wednesday.
- The decision comes two years after Trump’s suspension on Facebook was enacted following the 2021 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
- At the time, platforms including Facebook determined that blocking Trump’s accounts outweighed the risk of potential further incitement to violence.
The updated protocol “addresses content that does not violate our Community Standards but that contributes to the sort of risk that materialized on January 6th, such as content that delegitimizes an upcoming election or is related to QAnon,” Clegg wrote. Meta may suppress distribution of such posts, and for repeated offenses temporarily limit access to Meta’s advertising tools. The company could also choose to remove the “reshare” button on posts that violate those guidelines or prevent them from being run as ads. Meta could take similar steps if Trump posted something that “violates the letter” of its community guidelines but that it deems newsworthy.
