Former US President Donald Trump has not yet returned to Facebook and Instagram.
Both platforms had blocked Trump in January after his supporters stormed the Capitol, and that in itself was justified, the Oversight Board determined Wednesday.
The Board is a kind of ‘court’ of Facebook and its daughter Instagram and must check whether both platforms adhere to their own rules.
Facebook did get a slap on the fingers. Trump has been banned “indefinitely,” and the Oversight Board wants Facebook to take another look at that in six months.
That punishment is too arbitrary for the ‘Facebook court’.
