Facebook to ban all content featuring Holocaust denial

Facebook just announced that it will ban all content that denies or distorts the Holocaust.

“I’ve struggled with the tension between standing for free expression and the harm caused by minimizing or denying the horror of the Holocaust,” said Zuckerberg in a Facebook post.

“My own thinking has evolved as I’ve seen data showing an increase in anti-Semitic violence, as have our wider policies on hate speech,” he said.

Facebook also said that it would also direct people searching for terms associated with the Holocaust or its denial to credible information off Facebook.

In August, Facebook banned certain anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and stereotypes.
