Conclusion

My theory is that Facebook was aware of the manifesto and blacked down their apps so as to make sure that the manifesto won’t be spread. When the black down happened with the Facebook family apps someone forced Facebook to restore everything in order to be spread the manifesto and the livestream would be also viewed by the users. Then Facebook so as to clean all this “mess” announced that they will remove any video of this tragedy, although they did have taken care so as to prevent the livestream to be uploaded. Just a theory.

All respect and love to the victims and their families.
