Share it!

The amount of Facebook algorithms is at an all time high, most people reaching only to a few of their friends now. What used to be a free spirited platform for everyone, is now probably the most censored platforms.

All over the world people complain about being shut down, account deleted, posts “against community standards.” What they did was post something Conservative, anti-war, some post that criticized feminism etc. The freedom we once had, is now lost.

New York Times steady reporting on new layers of Facebook algorithms, adds to the climate of toxicity. The layers now are as shocking as they are sad, pointing in the direction of pure censorship of free speech.

Gina Bianchini, CEO at Mighty Networks writes about this, stating that the Facebook era is over. Mostly older people engage now as the younger audience flocks to Instagram.

Take a listen to Silicon Valley guru Jaron Lanier’s talk with Channel 4 on how social media and the massive control that you are not aware of, is ruining your life.
