The Anti-Defamation League says that, despite a ban, Holocaust denial content can still be found across groups and posts on Facebook.
According to the organization, “cracks in enforcement” mean that such posts are still found on the social media platform a year after the ban was instituted.
“One year since they first implemented their policy, Facebook has taken some positive steps to address the proliferation of Holocaust denial, but that doesn’t mean that the problem has gone away,” says ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt. “There’s still a lot of Holocaust denial on Facebook. We urge the platform to take additional steps to address these cracks in enforcement as well as to ensure that the ban is more consistently applied across the platform.”
