Facebook Will No Longer Protect Politicians from Content Moderation


Tech giant Facebook has stated that it will stop protecting politicians on its platform from content moderation and will inform world leaders when they receive a “strike.”

The Daily Mail reports that Facebook plans to stop shielding politicians on its platform from content moderation following the suspension of former President Donald Trump from the platform. The tech giant is set to announce the policy reversal as soon as this week.

Facebook has faced criticism recently for its hands-off approach to moderating government officials and now appears to be taking proactive measures. Sources told the Verge that Facebook plans to reveal details about its secretive policies under which strikes that can lead to suspensions are issued for breaking content rules. Facebook will reportedly tell politicians when they’ve been given a strike.

The company will also now disclose when a politician’s post violates its rules and has been given a newsworthiness exemption.
