Facebook bans large segment of the boogaloo movement

Facebook Inc. classified a large segment of the boogaloo movement as a dangerous organization and banned it from its network, in the tech company’s broader move against the group.

The company said in a blog post that it removed more than 300 Facebook and Instagram accounts and 106 groups linked to a boogaloo-affiliated network “actively seeking to commit violence.” The deletions occurred along with an additional deletion of 400 groups and 100 pages that contained content broadly compatible with the boogaloo movement.
