"We remove content that violates our standards as soon as we're aware of it".
Those four videos have since been removed from Jones' channels.
The videos that led Facebook to impose the short posting ban are believed to be the same ones that led YouTube to act. One of those videos, titled "How to Prevent Liberalism", which showed a young boy being pushed to the ground by an adult male, is no longer hosted on InfoWars' Facebook page.
The parents of two children who died in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting sued Jones for defamation in April, accusing him and InfoWars of engaging in a campaign of "false, cruel, and unsafe assertions". The company still claims that the video doesn't violate its community standards.
Prior to this ban, Jones has received a notification from Facebook informing him that he had repeatedly violated its policies and informing him that if he did so again, he'd receive a 30-day ban.

"In this case, we received reports related to four different videos on the Pages that Infowars and Alex Jones maintain on Facebook", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.
Facebook's move comes after YouTube also pulled down four Infowars videos, citing similar violations. The Alex Jones Channel received a strike back in February, but that has since expired.
The social network told CNet that the Alex Jones Channel on Facebook was close to the threshold which would see it shut down and deleted.
It's the kind of step YouTube has yet to take against Jones.
As well as taking down the videos, the InfoWars YouTube channel has been hit by a penalty known as a "community strike", which stops it broadcasting live for 90 days. Surprisingly, this is the first warning for the Infowars page. These kinds of situations will continue to come up on Facebook as it separates personal accounts from pages. "We try to make it so that it doesn't get much distribution".

His temporary ban from Facebook means he can't post content on any page for which he's an administrator. So, what exactly is a 30-day block?
Wrote Mashable: "While Jones didn't receive an out-and-out ban this time, he's certainly treading on thin ice as far as Facebook's concerned".
