According to Facebook’s official announcement, the company will ban posts that deny the Holocaust. While this itself seems fine, they will not extend this to apply to other horrific genocides, like what happended in Rwanda or Armenia.
This has caused outrage on social media:
All genocides are equal, but some genocides are more equal than others. https://t.co/G6CSkr0C4e

Update: This new policy is specific to Holocaust denial. You can still deny other genocides on Facebook. https://t.co/cHxaLcdvNK
