Facebook bans thousands of QAnon groups, pages and ads

Under a new policy, Facebook is removing any pages, groups and accounts associated with the fringe conspiracy theory, as well as militia movements and violent groups linked to protests.

According to NBC News, the company said the accounts, pages, and groups will be removed when they "discuss potential violence." Facebook will also limit their spread on News Feed and prevent them from appearing in recommendations. - Issie Lapowsky
