It also blocks events near the US Capitol and State Capitol buildings
Facebook doesn’t let people create events that are “in close proximity” to the White House, the US – Capitol, or another, the company is building on the previously announced preparations for Facebook’s opening day on Friday to prevent the platform from being used to organize a violent event like the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th A “secondary review” of all Inauguration-related events, removing events that violate the platform’s rules. The company also continues a policy that prohibits sites and accounts outside of the US from creating events in the US. This policy was first set in place for the U.S. presidential election.
FACEBOOK HAS COME UNDER SCRUTINY FOR ANY OWN POST THAT CONFIRM JANUARY 6TH MAY SPREAD
The company has been scrutinized by the unrest because of the unrest Promoted and organized on Jan. 6, shared on Facebook and Instagram, and served ads for military equipment alongside content containing election misinformation and calls for violence. According to BuzzFeed News. Although Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg believes the riots “were largely organized on platforms incapable of stopping hatred,” the company is stepping up enforcement of its policies and working to target potentially dangerous ones to remove the content before the opening day.
Accounts that have repeatedly violated Facebook’s guidelines can be restricted. Those restrictions may include blocking the creation of live video, events, groups, or pages, according to the company.
Facebook isn’t the only platform looking to prevent opening day gatherings. Airbnb is blocking and canceling all reservations in the DC metro area during opening week and is banning people who were involved in the January 6 riots.
In the days after that attack, many platforms have taken steps to try to prevent people from organizing another. for example, it now blocks the phrase “stop theft”. Apple and Google have banned the conservative social app Parler from their app stores, and Amazon has canceled Parler’s hosting, effectively removing him from the internet.
