- Facebook announced it will now ban content that “denies or distorts the Holocaust,” reversing its earlier policy.
- In announcing the change, Facebook said: “Our decision is supported by the well-documented rise in anti-Semitism globally and the alarming level of ignorance about the Holocaust, especially among young people.”
- In 2018, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook did not remove Holocaust-denying content because it must allow for the possibility that users are making unintentional mistakes.
Such a brave, edgy stance to take 75 years after WW2 ended, no less.
