Facebook Oversight Board To Announce Decision On Trump Ban On May 5

What you need to know about the board deciding Trump's fate on Facebook

Former U.S. President Donald Trump has launched an online platform aimed at directly communicating with his supporters, months after his various social media accounts were banned over allegations that he used the tools to disseminate election falsehood.

The website so far consists of a feed of short posts by Trump on a range of political matters - the most recent of which take aim at Republican colleagues who have fallen out of favor with the former president, including U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney and Senator Mitt Romney.

"We'll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future", he tweeted.

One can discover Trump's old statements featured on the platform, starting from 24 March.

Alphabet Inc's YouTube says it does not have different rules for world leaders, though its exception for "educational" or "documentary" content does allow certain news coverage of politicians making rule-breaking statements. CBSN is now available on CBSNews.com and the CBS News app across more than 20 platforms, as well as the Paramount+ subscription service.

Facebook oversight board set to rule on Trump ban

Some said Facebook should have banned Trump long ago, while others called the ban "censorship" and argued it was a display of unaccountable corporate power over political speech.

The platform includes buttons for supporters to like or share its content on Facebook and Twitter.

The website is reportedly built by Campaign Nucleus, the digital services company created by Mr Trump's former campaign manager Brad Parscale. It also allows leaders to interact with other public figures and engage in "foreign policy saber-rattling".

The decision to ban Trump from social media sites like Facebook was met with both praise and criticism.

In its submission to the board, the institute said Facebook should conduct "an independent study of how its platform may have contributed to the events of January 6" and that the panel should rule on Trump "only after the company has provided it with the results of that study".
