The government fights against the people and blame the people for it.

you are doing it in usa but in india its a mess, whatsapp , insta and fb have thousands of fake accounts and ages that are spreading racist, religious and sexist hatred along with lots of propaganda that can help the non secular and majoritarian gov. to come in power.

At least have the f'kng baIIs, or borrow some, you nutIess, spineIess fux, to say what your really doing to your users! Fakebook creates War Room to 'prevent election interference', by CENS0RlNG those who do N0T agree w/their mentaI mentaIity, basicaIIy anyone who's considered a RepubIican or Conservative, right?! That's what they're actuaIIy doing. It's not our democracy these Iying, manipuIating asshoIes are trying to protect. It's their democratic party, they're protecting, by CENS0RlNG anyone on the Right, who tells the t ruth &/or shows facts, on subjects, PED0rats have Iied about!

So, abject totalitarianism it is then is it? Hilary Clinton lost, get that through your fucking heads. She was a terrible candidate and ran on the fact that "She was a woman" and stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders. I don't give two shits if no one likes Bernie Sanders, I would have voted for him...but no. You assholes wanted me to vote for a very hateful and vindictive person. Fuck the lot of you. This will not silence the right wing by the way, your actions only serve to increase the strength of it. Keep doing what you are doing. You are better recruits for right wing thought then any right wing pundit could be. I am also not here to trash on the right wing either, in fact I would dare say that right wingers would agree with me here. You are causing a Streisand Effect that you will not be able to stop, no matter how many "War Rooms" you have. 20 people, 100 people, a thousand people? Not enough to stop the ones who disagree with you. You will fail, and I will be sipping my juice laughing at you fuckers. You fake news assholes deserve it.

So basically they're going to censor conservative/libertarian accounts and promote progressive liberal/globalist accounts and pages to the top of their news feeds.

if I was a Putin paid troll, I would be upset that Facebook might block my actions and I might be out of a job.

You still wont win... What a waste of resources just to combat people you believe to have "the wrong think". But with a monopoly on search engines & social media, who dare stop you right?

How can Facebook legally maintain their Section 230 Safe Harbor protections when they're editorializing?

Calling out Mark Tprodicus, Gianni Rivera, Mike B for being blind partisan hacks. Yes Facebook is a fracked up company that should not exist. But it is just a massive technological tool that the humans masses have no idea how to handle. No one can realy control the whole thing to their advantage. Facebook was used masterfuly by the neo-republicans mob in 2016 thus why you freaking WON the Election. Even though i'm quite sure the Facebook Company Staff do not swing right. You are soo blinded by the hate for the Democrat Party brand name you don't even realise they Do Not Exist in Brazil. The most fracked up thing American Company Facebook has to apply the same Election Activity manipulation on a Foreign Nation. Yet your blind hatred towards Demoocrat Party was all you talk about.

So basically Facebook hired some Democratic Party hacks to silence right wingers. It doesn’t matter, I would have to be DEAD to not vote the straight republican ticket

I'm not a Trump supporter and I don't even have a Facebook account. But the now head of cyber security of Facebook was on Obama's campaign and it seems that Facebook is seeking ultimate censorship... I don't like where this is going. "Biased corporate dictatorship" sounds about right.

I don't want a bunch of staff to determine whether what I do using their product is "correct" or not. I especially when they do have my personal information, including where I've been with my phone.

censorship? for trolls maybe, for everyone else is just a huge slap in the face.
Mark Tprodicus (3 months ago)
So.... Watch it.... Democrats have Facebook all wrapped up!... Make Facebook like Myspace!

。岷褪黨素菜1 a private company that has the ability to manipulate the information that billions of people to see and claims to be bipartisan. I hope you would be against a partisan FB too.

FB war room should be called FB censorship room
。獨角戲素菜1 (3 months ago)
it's not even just censorship, it's also a private company monitoring their user's behaviours.
