Facebook updates its QAnon policy

Facebook Inc. has officially announced that, starting from Wednesday, any attempts to search terms in connection to QAnon on Facebook and Instagram, will be redirected to resources that are considered to be credible, in accordance with the Global Network on Extremism and Technology (GNET), the academic research network of the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism.

As it is stated, "this is the latest expansion of the Redirect Initiative to help combat violent extremism and will direct people to resources that can help inform them of the realities of QAnon and its ties to violence and real world harm".

Earlier this month, Facebook announced a ban on all pages, groups and accounts linked to the QAnon conspiracy movement from its platform.
