Protect Democracy & Expose Western Liberal Democracy


I received this [You recently posted something that violates Facebook policies, This block will be active for 3 days more.]

I replied:

[You did not say what that thing and the violated policy, so I have to guess.
I am history scholar and I write in some websites, my findings reflected in my comments and posts and they are not necessarily conventional but definitely well-founded.
I assume that one or some of Facebook employees are reacting either from unfounded politically motivated reports or from their personal understanding, or from both, to evaluate my work.
Malicious or ignorant reporting must not dictate Facebook actions against my account.]

In the last month only I reported more than 15 problems with mu account in Facebook ranging from total block, deleted posts, to failure to post.

Let me present here an article posted on three reliable websites.

First: gizmodo.com wrote on 5 May 2016: “Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

[Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.

Several former Facebook “news curators,” as they were known internally, also told Gizmodo that they were instructed to artificially “inject” selected stories into the trending news module, even if they weren’t popular enough to warrant inclusion—or in some cases weren’t trending at all. The former curators, all of whom worked as contractors, also said they were directed not to include news about Facebook itself in the trending module.

 In other words, Facebook’s news section operates like a traditional newsroom, reflecting the biases of its workers and the institutional imperatives of the corporation. Imposing human editorial values onto the lists of topics an algorithm spits out is by no means a bad thing—but it is in stark contrast to the company’s claims that the trending module simply lists “topics that have recently become popular on Facebook.”]. See the full article.

Second: the London School of Economics site wrote on 17 May 2016: “Facebook may be biased against conservative stories. But conservatives may also be biased against Facebook.

[Last week saw accusations that the social media giant Facebook, routinely suppresses conservative news sources. Facebook is so dominant in the US media scene, concern has reached as high as the US Senate, with Senator John Thune querying Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as to how the site’s ‘trending topics’ feature is implemented. R. Kelly Garrett writes that given the likely number of conservatives using the site, it would not be good business sense for it to be biased against right-leaning news sources. That said, Facebook’s curators might be unintentionally biased against conservative media; at the same time, conservatives might be more likely to see Facebook as having a liberal slant, even if it is actually unbiased. 

It’s a provocative headline: “Former Facebook workers: We routinely suppressed conservative news.” In the story, two anonymous former “news curators” who had worked at the widely used social networking site accuse the company of systematically excluding important conservative news from its “trending topics” service. This bias purportedly affects both conservative news topics, such as CPAC, and right-leaning news outlets, such as RedState or NewsMax. Further, the Gizmodo article asserts that curators routinely “inject” political content that did not emerge organically from users’ posts, but which Facebook staff deemed important.

A day after the story broke, Senator John Thune, a Republican from South Dakota and Chair of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, sent a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in which he posed a number of questions about the service. He asked that the company provide details about how the trending topic feature is implemented, to describe the role of news curators, and to indicate whether there are records that could be used to assess curators’ potential biases.] Read the full article.

Third: The Newsweek wrote on 18 May 2016: “Is Facebook Really Suppressing Conservative News?”

[This article first appeared on the London School of Economics site.

Conclusion:

It is very essential to keep Facebook operating fairly without political bias and under scrutiny. It must uphold and serve freedom of speech and not to be party in any political game or service.

The public, the users, and the authorities need to watch and hold Facebook to its sole responsibilities both at national and international levels.

  1. It seems FaceBook is controlled by Jews or those who take orders from the Jews or like minded people.

    • The problem is not within Facebook, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, or else the main issue is the lack of coordinated organized work from the Goyim to counter balance the acts of Zionists. They are few but they penetrate and takeover.
      Look at any critical post you will find a lot of likes but too much active barrage of attacks.

  2. If anybody is willing to help, please share as much articles from this blog on Facebook. Thanks.
