Facebook bans Holocaust denial on its platform

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Monday that the tech giant would be expanding its hate speech policies to ban any content that "denies or distorts the Holocaust."

The company’s decision comes amid a push by Holocaust survivors around the world who lent their voices to a campaign targeting Zuckerberg, urging him to take action to remove Holocaust denial posts from the social media site. It is also Facebook’s latest attempt to take action against conspiracy theories and misinformation ahead of the US presidential election on November 3.
