Facebook bans health and conspiracy site Natural News (Updated) - 2019-06-10
In an email to Ars, a spokesperson for Facebook confirmed the removal and said only that it was over "violating our policies against spam." Under those policies, Facebook "do[es] not allow people to use misleading or inaccurate information to collect likes, followers, or shares." More specifically, it prohibits sites that "encourage likes, shares, or clicks under false pretenses," and those that "artificially increase distribution for financial gain," among other things.
Facebook's decision comes just a day after The Daily Beast published a report into the wild, far-right conspiracy theories that have become staples on Natural News.
