In addition, Facebook announced on January 11, 2021 that the 2020 presidential election will ban posts containing the phrase 'stop the steal,' which is popular with those who believe they stole the victory from Mr. Trump.

Facebook has announced that since the original group 'Stop the Steal' was removed in November, Facebook has continued to hold page group events that violate policies such as calling for violence. It is said that it continues to be deleted. The ban on postings including 'stop the steal' is a follow-up measure, but overseas news media Ars Technica posted at 17:00 on the 11th, 'Can Facebook say'stop the steal'?' It reports that it was able to do so and that the measures are not yet complete.

But on the other hand, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has revealed that the riots in the Capitol are 'mostly not organized by Facebook.' 'What we're doing isn't perfect, and Facebook still has more to do,' Sandberg said in an interview with Reuters. 'Such an event blocks our hate. I think it's happening on a platform that doesn't have the ability to do it and doesn't have our transparency or standards. '

In this regard, CNBC said, 'There are still many groups that could post to Capitol riots on Facebook.' 'On January 5, there was also a Facebook group that called on 80,000 followers to update on Capitol. This group deleted the post after CNBC contacted us. '
