Facebook bans British far-right related pages

By Jeff Davies

Facebook Inc. has permanently banned a number of pages, including the British National party (BNP), the English Defence League (EDL) and Britain First, under its “dangerous individuals and organizations” policy, the company announced on Thursday. The ban also means that users who share any material in support of the banned may be removed from the social media giant’s platforms.

“The individuals and organisations we have banned today violate this policy, and they will no longer be allowed a presence on Facebook or Instagram,” the Facebook said in a statement.

Earlier, Facebook disclosed it “unintentionally uploaded” email contacts of up to 1.5 million users to its platform when they created new accounts.
