Facebook bans far-right group Britain First

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) bans far-right group Britain First from its platform for inciting hatred.

The social network removed the group’s main page and those of leaders Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen for repeated rule violations. 

Britain First came to global attention after President Trump retweeted one of the group’s anti-Islamic tweets.

The removal comes as governments pressure tech companies to take a more proactive role in combating online extremism. 

Facebook shares are up 0.4% premarket to $182.59.
