Facebook Inc. will no longer recommend politics-themed groups to users, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg stated during today's earnings call.

"We plan to keep civic and political groups out of recommendations for the long term and we plan to expand that policy globally," Zuckerberg said.

The social media giant will also lower the amount of political content in main news feeds in an attempt "to turn down the temperature and discourage divisive conversation."
