However, the board has punted the final decision over Trump’s tài khoản back khổng lồ Facebook itself, suggesting the platform make a decision in six months regarding what khổng lồ vì with Trump’s trương mục và whether it will be permanently deleted.

Facebook suspended Trump’s tài khoản after the Capitol attack of 6 January, when a mob of Trump supporters stormed Congress in an attempt to overturn the former president’s defeat by Joe Biden in the 20trăng tròn presidential election.

Trump was initially suspended from Facebook và Instagram for 24 hours, as a result of two posts shared lớn the platkhung in which he appeared lớn praise the actions of the rioters. The company then extended the president’s ban “at least until the over of his time in office”.

His trương mục was suspended indefinitely pending the decision of the oversight board, a group of appointed academics and former politicians meant khổng lồ operate independently of Facebook’s corporate leadership.

The board assigned ultimate responsibility lớn the social media company regarding whether the tài khoản will be given a reinstatement date và said Facebook must complete its đánh giá of this matter within six months. It said Facebook failed lớn impose proper penalties against Trump for violating its policies.

Trump lashed out against Facebook and other social truyền thông giants in response khổng lồ the decision on Wednesday, saying such companies “must pay a political price” for suspending his accounts. “What Facebook, Twitter, & Google have sầu done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment lớn our Country,” Trump said in a statement. “The People of our Country will not st& for it!”

Facebook typically removes violating content from an trương mục, imposing a time-bound period of suspension, or permanently disables the page & trương mục. Trump’s trương mục remains on Facebook with a number of older posts still live.

“It was not appropriate for Facebook to impose the indeterminate và standardless penalty of indefinite suspension,” the oversight board said in a statement. “The board insists that Facebook review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied khổng lồ other users of its platsize.”

The board defines its mission as “to promote không lấy phí expression by making principled, independent decisions regarding content on Facebook & Instagram và by issuing recommendations on the relevant Facebook company nội dung policy”.

In response to lớn the announcement on Wednesday, the Real Oversight Board said the decision proves “the Facebook oversight board experiment has failed”.

“This verdict is a desperate attempt khổng lồ have sầu it both ways, upholding the ‘ban’ of Donald Trump without actually banning hyên, while punting any real decisions baông xã khổng lồ Facebook,” the group said.

Campaigners have pushed for Trump’s suspension khổng lồ be made permanent, pointing at the importance of the platform for the former president in pushing his message.

In February, Change the Terms, a coalition of more than 60 human rights groups, said: “The board must acknowledge that Trump’s social media presence has made not just Facebook users but the entire world less safe.”

Following the Capitol riot, Trump was suspended from several major tech platforms, including Twitter, YouTube and Snapchat. Twitter has since made its ban permanent. YouTube’s CEO said in March that platform would lift it suspension when the risk of violence decreases.
