Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) announced Wednesday afternoon that it will restore former President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts after suspending them in the aftermath of the Capitol riot on January 6th, 2021.

After evaluating the current environment, including the recent 2022 midterm elections, the company's Oversight Board determined that the risk "has sufficiently receded" and that they should therefore adhere to the two-year timeline initially established for the suspension.

While the accounts will be reinstated in the coming weeks, they will come with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.

They said Trump will be subject to their Community Standards, like any other Facebook or Instagram user. However, in light of his violations, "he now also faces heightened penalties for repeat offenses – penalties which will apply to other public figures whose accounts are reinstated from suspensions related to civil unrest under our updated protocol. In the event that Mr. Trump posts further violating content, the content will be removed and he will be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation."

Shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp (NASDAQ:DWAC), the SPAC merging with Trump's Truth Social, fell fractionally after hours on the news.

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.

What specifically are the guidelines. Facebook won't treat Democrats the same way. I dumped Facebook after the election. Never going back.
