Tech Expert Trevor Long told Sky News Facebook’s advisory board is expected to make a final ruling on whether Donald Trump will be allowed back onto the platform sometime next week.
“They’ve got an advisory board, they call it Facebook’s ‘Supreme Court’ if you like, it’s the last point of call for appeals and things within Facebook’s decision making,” he said.
Mr Long said the group – which includes academics and lawyers – is only a year old and will decide whether the decision to ban Mr Trump was “just” in terms of Facebook’s rules or whether he should be allowed back on.
“It’s actually a very defining decision for Facebook around what control they have over who’s on their platform,” he said.
“It will be fascinating to see what happens here and I think that by next week we’ll know whether Trump’s back”.
