Facebook has reaffirmed its all-encompassing prohibition of ‘Pro-Taliban Content’ throughout its ecosystem of platforms and applications.
A team of famous Afghan specialists has also been devoted by the big social media to monitoring and removing information related to the group it deems a terrorist organization.
A Facebook employee told BBC: “the Taliban are sanctioned as a terrorist organization under American statute, and they are excluded from our services under our Dangerous Organization’s guidelines. This means we are deleting accounts owned, supported and represented by the Taliban, or on behalf of them.”
This policy applies to all programmes owned by Facebook, such as WhatsApp and its flagship Instagram social media network.
While Facebook has joined the new rule to regulate online material aggressively, applications like Twitter and Reddit, which are also included with the networking framework, are still in line with that topic.
