Adam Mosseri, head of Facebook’s photo-sharing app Instagram, said in a Bloomberg Television interview on Monday that the Taliban were on the company’s list of dangerous organizations and that all content promoting or representing the group had been banned.
“We rely on a strategy that will enable us to actively remove anything dangerous or even related to the Taliban,” Moseri said. “The situation is growing rapidly now, and I’m sure the risk will increase,” he said.
