Is Facebook following Target down the path of lunacy? Their stock may also feel the effects…
How bad are things on Facebook? As my colleague Jeff Dunetz noted over at the Media Research Center, the media is focusing on Facebook’s Trending Topics issue but ignoring the real problems with the social media giant. What many aren’t hearing about are the numerous stories of abuse and insane bans meted out to many users.
Consider this. One user, who asked to remain anonymous, said Tuesday he was given a 30-day ban for a graphic declaring that there are two genders — male and female.
Here’s the picture in question:
According to Facebook, this violates their community standards.
How is that possible? Good question. Apparently, Facebook is so liberal that it now rejects science and banishes anyone who disagrees.
That’s all well and good, but what about nonsense like this? Who will stand for the average conservative? Anyone?
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened, and chances are it won’t be the last.
As a final note, I, along with Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel, are putting the final touches on a book about the social media giant and what it enables. That book is tentatively set to be published this fall.
Something tells me Facebook will soon face the music and perhaps change their ways before it is too late!
