Facebook Inc and Instagram decided on Thursday (January 7) to extend a ban on US President Donald Trump`s accounts for at least the next two weeks until the presidential transition is completed, said Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg, who also denounced the riot that occurred at the Capitol Hill when President Trump’s supporters stormed a joint session of Congress.

On Wednesday, Twitter, Facebook, and Snap Inc temporarily blocked Trump`s accounts as tech giants scrambled to crack down on his baseless claims about the US presidential election and hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol.
