I’m thinking my FidoSysop Facebook page is being censored! Articles news etc shared was getting many views comments and shares. But last night it all came to a sudden halt. Personally I believe Facebook is squashing messengers voices who support the MAGA movement and efforts to give president Donald J. Trump 4 More Years! 🙂
This narrated screen video lays out my thoughts on this situation, with a few examples of popular shares. The FidoSysop Facebook page itself contains no hate or otherwise harmful content. THE TRUTH about political bias censorship in social media today!
Update 08/23/19: FidoSysop Facebook Page Shadowban continues. No warnings or messages from Facebook support. For months this page has been very active with lots views, shares, and comments. Now nothing. It’s like someone turned the switch off. 😥
Update 08/24/19: I’ve disassociated www.docsplace.org from Facebook but it looks like it has been flagged as fake-news or dangerous content. On one search engine ALL results have been removed. Unfortunately big tech is in control of what we access in cyberspace. Under the circumstance I’m leaning toward shutting it down. This site did once get a lot of traffic from Facebook, but otherwise not enough to warrant keeping it online.
That old saying “you can’t fight city hall” rings true in this situation. I’m planning on wildcard redirecting www.docsplace.org (registered in 1998) it to a video explaining what happened. Promoting this forum has been a huge flop. Additionally I’m on my own. There are no allies in Cyberspace, or at least not for me. Popular personalities i follow do not respond to tweets, or reply to emails. One guy urges his followers to subscribe to his email list, but mostly uses it to solicit donations.
Back in the 90’s my Fidonet bbs was a small tight knit community within the 727 area code, connected by modems. Now with the Internet that sense of community is gone. The gatekeepers rule from behind a dark cloud punishing anyone that disagrees with them. Way too many hackers, scammers, spammers, contributing to a world-wide community of ciaos. I’m done for now, but may be back one day. Regardless of all this big tech Bullshit I’m Voting TRUMP!
It’s obvious this FidoSysop Facebook page is causing serious liberal butt-hurt, which is frowned upon by the Gatekeepers of the Internet. I’ve observed several Facebook IP’s scouring this blog and forum looking for harmful or dangerous content. 😆
From lifesitenews.com: I think part of the fundamental thing here is that we created Facebook to be a place where different people can have a voice, News Feed head John Hegeman answered. News Feed product specialist Sara Su said that conspiracy theories, misleading claims, bugs me too. But we need to figure out a way to really define that in a clear way, and then figure out what our policy and our product positions are about that.
The shadowban wasn’t just in our heads. Facebook really is targeting and limiting conservative pages to control the kind of news users see. All this blame on right wing trolls influencing the election, when it’s been the entire platform steering it Left the whole time.
