⚡️The Politics of Social Media⚡️
Silicon Valley big tech decision makers are not politically diverse. If you have a largely liberal political body in Silicon Valley making these decisions- you are on some level censoring free speech. This is widely problematic if the majority of people get their news from sites like Facebook. Additionally, how can one accurately diagnose or determine what constitutes fake news or hate speech if they are making these decisions with political bias?
🚨Facebook’s decision to shut down Jones shows you the tremendous power big tech has.
🚨So, how does this apply to you? Well, even if you aren’t posting content deemed offensive, it’s a nice gentle reminder for you that Facebook owns everything you do and you really are just renting space on their platform. They can pull it at any time- so back up all of your content, and don’t trust that any social media site has your best interest in mind.
