Facebook has decided to Keep Trump suspended until 2023. After that time, they will evaluate to see if Trump still poses a danger to public safety.
Facebook has decided to have an end date to Trump’s suspension on the platform, Jan 7th, 2023, just in time for the 2024 Election. Facebook’s oversight board recommended that Facebook reviews Trump’s suspension. The social media company says they will need more time to see if Trump changes his conduct and will have a final decision in 2023. If the suspension is lifted, Trump will have to abide by specific rules so he will not violate any more rules.
Nick Clegg, the man in charge of Compliance, said in a blog post about Trump’s suspension.
On Friday, Facebook released a new set of enforcement protocols after their Board recommended they have more transparency which was the cause for Trump’s recent suspension.

Facebook’s Oversight board said in a statement.
The Board believes the steps Facebook has committed to today will contribute to greater clarity, consistency and transparency in the way the company moderates content, and promote public safety, defend human rights and respect freedom of expression. The Board monitors Facebook’s implementation of all its decisions and recommendations, and intends to hold the company to account on its commitments,” the board said in a statement.
The Board is encouraged that Facebook is adopting some of their recommendations to be more transparent on how and why they ban high profile users. The Oversight Board is a group of radical leftist academics, liberal journalists, and politicians. The group was created as an effort by Facebook to get advice on high-profile bans and suspensions of celebrities, politicians, and lawmakers.
