Meta Corporation, which owns Facebook, is set to announce its decision to return former United States President Donald Trump to Facebook and Instagram.

This was reported by the Financial Times.

The company previously announced that a decision on the prospects for Trump’s social media accounts would be made by Jan. 7. However, it is now expected that a final decision will be made, albeit in this place, but a little later. The publication reports this, citing an insider who is involved in this issue.

A specially created working group has to decide Trump’s future fate on social networks. It included representatives from communications and public policy teams, as well as content policy teams.

The decision is important to the company because Trump’s material can hurt businesses by alienating potential advertisers. This is possible if the politician again resorts to hate speech and incitement. At the same time, if Trump’s political force decides to conduct an advertising campaign on the platform, it could become profitable for the company.

To recap, Trump was blocked “indefinitely” after his supporters attacked the US Capitol building in Washington. The politician in every possible way incited his adherents to civil disobedience. At the time, Zuckerberg said Trump had been blocked for “inciting a violent uprising against a democratically elected government.”

Zuckerberg’s decision was supported by the Meta supervisory board. At the same time, the company’s board of directors said the ban was not lifelong and ordered Meta to reconsider its decision within two years.

Recall that earlier Musk conducted a survey and, according to its results , unblocked Trump’s account on the social network Twitter.
