Facebook bans content related to white nationalism & separatism after pressure from civil rights groups

Facebook has announced that it will ban praise, support, and representation of white nationalism and separatism on Facebook and Instagram. In a blog post announcing the ban, Facebook said that conversations with academics and civil rights groups informed its decision to expand its policies beyond white supremacy, which had previously been banned. Moving forward people searching for terms associated with white supremacy will be redirected to the website of "Life After Hate", an organization founded by former violent extremists that provides crisis intervention, education, support groups and outreach.
