"We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year", the company said in a blog post.
Facebook announced Friday that former President Donald Trump's accounts will be suspended for two years, freezing his presence on the social network until early 2023 following a finding that Trump stoked violence ahead of the deadly Jan 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
Tech giant bashed from both sides of the aisle: Facebook's decision to keep Trump suspended was panned by critics on both the right, who criticized the company for muzzling the former president at all, and left, who hammered the company for not booting him off for good.
"Facebook's ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75M people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election", Trumpwrote.
"They shouldn't be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing", Trump said. "Our Country can't take this abuse anymore!"
Trump has been prohibited from posting to Facebook (as well as other social media platforms) since the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. And in another statement, Trump again raised the specter of a 2024 White House run, vowing not to dine privately with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg again the "n$3 ext time I'm in the White House".
Facebook said it will reexamine Trump's suspension when this two-year period comes to a close.
If we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of time and continue to re-evaluate until that risk has receded.
We will evaluate external factors, including instances of violence, restrictions on peaceful assembly and other markers of civil unrest.
Facebook said it was "committed to fully implementing" most of the board's recommendations.
The oversight panel called on Facebook to justify why his ban should be permanent - sending the matter back to Mr Zuckerberg, who has long argued that private companies should not be the arbiters of truth online. Under the new rules, an account can also be suspended for a month, six months, or a year, depending on the severity of a violation.
Last month, the Oversight Board said that Facebook was justified in suspending Trump, but that by imposing an "indefinite" suspension the company was failing to follow its own rules.
Facebook has had a general "newsworthiness exemption" since 2016.
"We know that any penalty we apply - or choose not to apply - will be controversial".
Activists joined together in a group that facetiously calls itself The Real Facebook Oversight Board decried the social network's latest steps as belated and insufficient. He added that additional scrutiny would be applied to Trump's account when it is restored, and that he could still be permanently banned from the platform for future behavior.
"Facebook was justified in removing Trump from its platforms, and now the company has appropriately made a decision to enforce its rules more vigorously against other political figures, as well".
Policy questions: In accordance with its bylaws, the board also issued recommendations for how Facebook should change or reconsider its policies, including on global leaders and influential users.
