Users may still share content relating to these figures on Instagram or Facebook, however, it appears that it is only content directly linked to Infowars that is fully banned.

Facebook released a statement saying, "We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology".

The social media giant also purged accounts belonging to far-right figures Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and failed Senate candidate Paul Nehlen. In Jones's case, he hosted McInnes on his show late last year and promoted him on Instagram earlier this year.
Twitter has previously banned a number of these individuals, including Loomer.
"We applaud Facebook for taking this positive step toward removing hate actors from the company's platforms", she said. Nehlen has posted many antisemitic comments over the years, including posting pictures of executives from numerous news agencies with Stars of David photoshopped on their faces.
