Facebook Oversight Board postpones decision on Trump ban

Facebook Oversight Board publicly announced on Twitter that the decision on Trump’s ban from Facebook and Instagram will be postponed for some weeks. According to the rules provided by Facebook’s board, decisions are supposed to take up to 90 days, but this specific case has been pushed back in order to give time to the board’s members to review the more than 9 thousand comments it has received about the case. The Oversight Board has ruled a handful of cases. The case involving Trump will be a major test to this model of platform governance.
