Facebook intends to censor content with which they disagree with

CNN, NYT and the Washington Post will not be flagged as clickbait by Facebook.

Facebook continues its drive towards censoring voices that divert from today’s twisted liberal dogma.

Facebook Vice President of Media Partnerships shared a new blog post on the company’s website detailing how FB intends to censor content with which they happen to disagree.

According to Zerohedge, all content providers who share “clickbait or sensationalism, or post misinformation and false news” will be deemed ineligible to monetize their efforts over Facebook.

To use any of our monetization features, you must comply with Facebook’s policies and terms, including our Community Standards, Payment Terms, and Page Terms. Our goal is support creators and publishers who are enriching our community. Those creators and publishers who are violating our policies regarding intellectual property, authenticity, and user safety, or are engaging in fraudulent business practices, may be ineligible to monetize using our features.

Creators and publishers must have an authentic, established presence on Facebook — they are who they represent themselves to be, and have had a profile or Page on Facebook for at least one month. Additionally, some of our features like Ad Breaks require a sufficient follower base, something that could extend to other features over time.

Those who share content that repeatedly violates our Content Guidelines for Monetization, share clickbait or sensationalism, or post misinformation and false news may be ineligible or may lose their eligibility to monetize.

Ironically, the biggest peddlers of “clickbait or sensationalism, or misinformation and false news” these days seems to be the largest, and ‘most respected’ mainstream media outlets…presumably there is a carve out for the likes of CNN, NYT and Wapo?

Of course, we first noted the efforts of Facebook to combat the spread of “fake news” over social media back in December 2016 when they first introduced a filter intended to flag ‘fake’ content so that users wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of critically analyzing information on their own.  As we noted at the time, it was a genius plan, except for one small issue:  who determines what is considered “fake news” and how exactly do they draw those conclusions? 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted that all ‘fact-checking’ would be outsourced to the liberal left website Snopes.com.

Historically, we have relied on our community to help us understand what is fake and what is not. Anyone on Facebook can report any link as false, and we use signals from those reports along with a number of others — like people sharing links to myth-busting sites such as Snopes — to understand which stories we can confidently classify as misinformation. Similar to clickbait, spam and scams, we penalize this content in News Feed so it’s much less likely to spread.

As Zerohedge rightly points out…

–this entire Facebook witch hunt has been prompted by $50,000 worth of ads that ‘MAY’ have been purchased by Russian-linked accounts to run ‘potentially politically related’ ads.

Anyone with a grain of intelligence should boycott Facebook..Let it just die…

There are innumerable alternatives which are not owned and run by thieves like Zuckerberg…who stole the whole idea of Facebook to start with…

I continue to be glad that I never opened a Facebook account. No one with much experience of computing would, I believe.

Well, they are a private business which means their rules, not so for publicly owned business’s though.

Way to follow the herd Alex. Tell us something we don’t know. How about promoting alternatives like Minds.com and Gab.Ai (Twitter needs left in coal mine).

More dumb American kids, damaging food. Also some physics – the bolt accelerates out of the bow then decelerates, ie, stand farther back to get more penetration from the greater bolt velocity. Regardless, a dumb waste of food and time.

With which they disagree… Maybe get someone with English as a first language to proof occasionally?

I have noticed several things happening in the last two months on items I have posted on facebook from the Duran and RT. One thing is that I do not see the same level of re-posts on the newsfeed of the Duran and RT that I do from other news sources. Some of this has to do with the subject matter ie Single Payer now items usually get a re-post no matter what the media source is. Facebook almost always re-posts personal photos of mine on newsfeed. However, items from mainstream media appear over and over on newsfeed – mainly… Read more »

With certainty the government is starting in the wrong place. The AIPAC and ADL need to register before the government even looks at the Russians. Because this isn’t happening, we know that our goverment is now very largely under the control of Israel. Why are we giving these parasites that have murdered our sailors so much money?
