Facebook’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said on Monday that last week’s deadly US Capitol riots were mainly conducted on other social media platforms.
“We again took QAnon, Proud Boys, Stop the Steel, whatever it was talking about possible violence last week,” Sandberg said during a flowing interview with Reuters, CNBC noted.
“Our enforcement is never perfect, so I’m sure there were still things on Facebook,” Sandberg said. “I think these programs were largely organized on platforms that lack our ability to curb hate, don’t have our standards and don’t have transparency.”
Many lawmen and critics have questioned why law enforcement and other officials were not more prepared for the riots when the events had already been heavily publicized.

During an interview with Reuters, Sandberg also stated that Facebook “had no plans” to lift the ban on Trump’s accounts. His accounts were banned until at least the presidential-election Joe Biden inauguration the following week.
Twitter permanently banned Trump’s account last week and removed the tweets he made later from the @POTUS Twitter account, stating that users were not allowed to avoid the ban with another account. Trump supporter Dalit group R / DonaldTrump was also taken down last week.
