Mark Zuckerberg in his Facebook post said, “Our platform allowed the President to share his views and messages as we believe that broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But today’s context is different. As President Trump was using our platform to condone rather than condemn the action of his supporters at the Capitol Building.”

“We are extending the block on Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least two weeks until the transition of power completes,” he said.
