Facebook’s oversight board has upheld the indefinite suspension on former US President Donald Trump.
The board has upheld Facebook’s decision on 7 January to restrict Mr Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account.
Mr Trump was banned from a number of social media platforms after his supporters stormed the US Capitol on 6 January.
Twitter has already said its ban is permanent, regardless of whether he runs for office in future, while YouTube will restore the former president’s channel when the risk of violence has decreased.
This week, the former president launched a space on his website where he posts messages that can be shared by others on their own social networking pages.
The website is called From The Desk Of Donald J Trump, and is built by Campaign Nucleus, a digital services company created by Mr Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale.
