Within hours of Facebook announcing it was going to ban QAnon from all its platforms, researchers who track these conspiracy movements were reporting that hundreds of groups, with hundreds of thousands of followers, had been wiped out almost instantly.

"Holy hell. Just had a look at my list of QAnon groups and pages on Facebook and it's bloodbath out there," Shayan Sardarizadeh, a disinformation researcher for BBC Monitoring, tweeted.

Those sentiments were echoed by researchers across the globe who had been warning the social network about the threat of QAnon for years.
