paragraphs :::
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday said the company would block President Donald Trump from posting to his Facebook and Instagram accounts for an indefinite amount of time and at least until President-elect Joe Biden assumes the Oval Office.

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post on his Facebook page. “Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

The suspension represents Facebook’s most aggressive action yet against Trump during his 4 year term. Calls had been mounting for Twitter and other social media platforms to shut down the president’s account or take other extreme action.

Facebook, Twitter, Snap and Google’s YouTube began taking steps on Wednesday to limit Trump’s posts on their platforms after he continued to make false claims about the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/07/facebook-will-block-trump-from-posting-for-the-remainder-of-his-term.html

2. Don't worry

All of the hate and Trump scam ads will still run. That’s where their honey is. Facebook is a media company hiding as a tech firm and should be held to the same standards and laws as the rest of the media. Mark even takes Rubles!
