A spokesperson at Facebook said the ban will apply to all types of representation of the individuals on both Facebook and Instagram.
Facebook last month banned various far-right British groups including the English Defense League from its network for promoting hate and violence. Louis Farrakhan was notably also banned from the platforms at the same time.
The lifetime bans include not only their personal accounts, but also any fan pages or group pages supporting the individuals. In September a year ago, Twitter permanently banned Jones and Infowars for "abusive behaviour". Jones's organization Infowars was also banned by Facebook. "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today", Facebook said in a statement to Fox News.
According to Facebook's community standards, the company considers unsafe individuals and organizations as those associated with terrorist activity, organized hate, mass murder, human trafficking and organized violent or criminal activity, as well as "content that expresses support or praise for groups, leaders or individuals involved in these activities". Groups and events that promote Infowars or any of the banned "extremists" will be removed as well, a spokesperson told the Atlantic.
Facebook has banned Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones and others from its main service and from Instagram, saying they violated the company's ban against hate and violence.
This banning is all part of larger global issues regarding online extremism, conspiracy theories, and hate speech. In Jones's case, he hosted McInnes on his show late last year and promoted him on Instagram earlier this year.

These mouthpieces of ugly racist, misogynist, anti-Semitic, and downright risky extremist rhetoric have all been banned from Facebook and Instagram.
