Facebook to ban white nationalist or separatist posts | TheHill

Facebook will begin banning white nationalist or white separatist content on its platform starting next week, the social media giant announced on Wednesday.

Facebook officials formally decided to ban “white nationalism” and “white separatism” on the platform at a content moderation meeting on Tuesday, according to Motherboard.

The significant policy shift comes a year after Motherboard, a tech news outlet, reported that Facebook’s content moderation had allowed “white nationalism and separatism” on the platform, though it barred explicit “white supremacy.”
