TTP Investigation: Facebook’s Crackdown on the Boogaloo Movement Leaves Major Holes
Today, Campaign for Accountability (CfA), a nonprofit watchdog group that runs the Tech Transparency Project (TTP), released a report detailing Facebook’s continued failure to stop members of the “boogaloo” movement from organizing on the platform. TTP first highlighted Facebook’s boogaloo problem in April, documenting how extremists are using the social network to plan for what they see as a coming civil war. But it took Facebook until June 30 to ban what it called a “violent” boogaloo network. Despite that ban and other actions announced by Facebook, TTP found that the movement is still growing on the platform.
