Censorship on Facebook

7 thoughts on “Censorship on Facebook”

  1. I dial into Facebook to follow activities of family and a few close friends. Facebook always has left much to be desired, but lately its producers seem hell bent on continual changes that invade privacy on one hand and invoke censorship on the other. Soon the time needed to deal with the atrocities will outweigh the value of keeping in touch with people I want to stay in touch with. Goodbye Facebook is fast approaching for me.

    1. I have plenty of other ways to stay in touch with people I care about. FB was in trouble with their privacy policies as long ago as 2011, when they got penalized by the FTC for their transgressions. They just can’t seem to keep their noses out of their users’ business. But apparently their 1.5 billion users don’t care. Guess that makes me eccentric or something.

  2. I like blogging, where I have total control over content. I do not hesitate to censor anyone who wants to give me, or anyone who comments, a hard time. But dissent doesn’t bother me. I don’t care that much about Facebook, although I do have an account. Most of what people post on it is drivel.

    1. Yep, I certainly prefer blogging. I’m the boss here. I never did figure out all those settings on FB. There’s no way of knowing for sure if you’ve made your stuff private or not. And even if you have, FB still has access to everything.

... and that's my two cents
