Facebook upholds Trump ban but will reassess decision over coming months

But, the board said, the indefinite time frame of the suspension "was not appropriate."
The board effectively punted the decision on the length of the suspension back to Facebook, saying the platform "seeks to avoid its responsibilities" by applying a vague penalty and then referring it to the board to review.

Facebook's independent oversight board ruled Wednesday to uphold the company's January decision to suspend the Facebook and Instagram accounts of former President Donald Trump.

But, the board said, the indefinite time frame of the suspension "was not appropriate." The board effectively punted the decision on the length of the suspension back to Facebook, saying it "insists" the company "review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform."

The board asked that Facebook complete the review within six months and made suggestions for how to create clear policies that balance public safety and freedom of expression.
