Facebook will ban any Instagram groups, pages or accounts that “represent” QAnon, the company said on Tuesday, in a sharp escalation in its attempt to quell the anti-Semitic conspiracy movement that has flourished on its platform.The policy will apply to Instagram groups, pages or accounts whose names or descriptions suggest they are dedicated to the QAnon movement, a Facebook spokesperson explained. This will not apply to individual content.

Just two months ago, Facebook had no policy on QAnon, a baseless internet conspiracy theory that followers believe without evidence that Donald Trump is waging a secret battle against a global cabal of child traffickers.
