"They're not so great at following up if the groups rebrand," Squire said of Facebook.

Another issue is that while the groups themselves are banned, individual members remain on Facebook and continue recruiting.

A Canadian blog called Anti-Racist Sudbury documented how members of Soldiers of Odin, a group banned on Facebook, are still active on the platform. One member created a profile with the username "S.O.O.Recruiting.Sudbury." He invited people to join the group's activities and cross-posted content to groups such as Yellow Vests Canada and the conservative Canada Proud page.

A group with nearly 7,000 members called Sons of Odin is also still on Facebook, along with copycats that sell Soldiers of Odin swag.
