Facebook’s Oversight Board is expected to announce its decision Wednesday regarding whether former President Donald Trump will be reinstated on Facebook and Instagram, or if his ban following the January 6 riot in Washington, D.C., will remain permanent.
The board’s decision — according to their own guidance — was meant to be concluded in 90 days. They announced in mid-April, however, that a decision could be expected “in the coming weeks” so that the board could review the thousands of comments it had received regarding the case.
“The Board will announce its decision on the case concerning former US President Trump’s indefinite suspension from Facebook and Instagram in the coming weeks. We extended the public comments deadline for this case, receiving 9,000+ responses,” the Oversight Board announced on Twitter. “The Board’s commitment to carefully reviewing all comments has extended the case timeline, in line with the Board’s bylaws. We will share more information soon.”
