Facebook to ban Holocaust denial content from its platform

Following years of criticism, Facebook has banned Holocaust denial content from its platform.

The social media giant stated that content that denies or distorts the Holocaust will be removed from its platform.

It added that later this year, anyone searching for terms related to the Holocaust will be directed to credible and authoritative third-party sources.

This follows recent criticism from Holocaust survivors directed towards Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, urging him to remove Holocaust denial content from the platform.
