Facebook oversight board extends timeline to decide on Donald Trump ban – GoIndiaNews

Facebook Inc’s independent oversight board said on Friday it had extended the timeline for deciding whether to uphold former US President Donald Trump‘s indefinite suspension from Facebook and Instagram.
The board, created by Facebook in response to criticism over its handling of problematic content, wrote in a tweet that it would announce the decision in the coming weeks.
Facebook indefinitely blocked Trump’s access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts over concerns of further violent unrest following the Jan. 6 storming of the US Capitol by his supporters. It later handed the case to the board.
The board, which would usually have 90 days to make a decision, had been expected to announce its ruling in the coming days.
But the board said its extension of the case’s public comment period meant it needed more time to review the input. The board has said it had received more than 9,000 comments on the Trump case, more than for any other case.
