Facing Irrelevancy, FB Shuts Down Violent Leftist Groups to Attract Users

In an unexpected move, Facebook has removed nearly 1,000 groups affiliated with far-left anarchist group Antifa and those promoting riotous acts as the platform’s newest policy change aims to strike at militia groups.

The social media giant removed 980 groups, suppressed 1,400 hashtags related to leftist agitators, and scrubbed 520 pages and 160 ads, according to The Washington Times.

The changes mean that the organization’s ability to attract new followers on the site and drive their content would be hampered as their rankings within direct search results have fallen.
