Facebook shares are getting crushed today, down almost 25%. The company’s value has fallen today by more than Boeing and General Motors are WORTH.
Why? For the first time ever, the number of Facebook users is shrinking. (The ridiculous rebranding to “Meta Platforms” probably doesn’t help.)
Apparently deplatforming every person and group who has a non-woke thought isn’t working out as well as Mark Zuckerberg had hoped.
Meanwhile, things are going great at Twitter too:
Twitter banned me on August 28. Since then, shares of the little bird have fallen almost 50 percent.
Censorship isn’t just un-American and contrary to the First Amendment and California and federal law.
It’s terrible for business.
Especially when this (from a blog post in February 2021) is your stated corporate reason for being:
Twitter exists to empower voices to be heard, and we continue to make improvements to our service so that everyone — no matter their views or perspective — feels safe participating in the public conversation.
Like those old movie theater ads for THX said, The audience is listening.
And they don’t like what they’re hearing.
Go woke, go BROKE!
I LOVE this. Twelve months ago I sold my FB shares (which I had held for 10 years) because I will no longer support, with my dollars, a company that is openly hostile toward conservatives. Screw you guys. Maybe it's time to tell your 28 year old Gender studies majors who are in control of censoring posts that they don't represent 50% of America.
In a related development, the Babylon Bee is reporting that Biden is asking the Tampa Bay football team to replace retiring QB Tom Brady with a woman of color!
Facebook tore down the page for the people organizing a US version of the Canadian Freedom Convoy, along with pulling the organizers' personal pages. Today, I read an article about the ratings on Fox News, and more self-described Democrats watch that channel than watch either CNN or MSNBC. Granted, the other two are basically the same bird with different plumage but you would expect them to split the Democrat audience in total, not lose basically a third of the Democrat audience to the network they have been telling us for years is nothing but far-right propaganda. There is a shift in the air. This country was really built on the idea that all people are equal, no matter how imperfectly we have carried that idea out over the centuries. But when you start seeing "elites" exempting them selves from COVID "rules" and treating the working and middle class like dirty servants, and the media is being their mouthpiece, telling us we aren't seeing what we know we're seeing, I think that is what is breaking people.
You reap what you sow. And as corporations they’ve sown nothing but discord, hatred and tyranny—evil, basically.
The day Shitter and Fakebook go out of business will be a hell of a glorious day for American democracy, and people's sanity. Meanwhile count me as one of those people that quit these platforms in the last two years - so I have a hand :)
We needed this good news right now!
Facebook has reached it's Best Before date.
When your enemy is destroying himself, stay out of his way.
I just cancelled my therapy session for today. Thank you!
FB is virtually useless. You survived without it before and you will survive without it again. Most of these high tech companies are based on virtual reality and hot air.
The fall of virtual Berlin wall?
It's not nearly enough. They need to be put out of business for the generation of self-absorbed troglodytes they've created, not to mention their censorship of free speech.
With actions like this, it's no wonder:
The U.S. group’s Facebook page, however, was removed early Wednesday in a move that the organizer called "censorship at its finest."
Jeremy Johnson, who set up the Facebook group, said his personal account was also removed, prompting him to contact a civil rights attorney to discuss the next steps.
A spokesperson for Facebook’s parent company, Meta, provided this statement to Fox News: "We have removed this group for repeatedly violating our policies around QAnon." In October 2020, Facebook labeled QAnon a "violence-inducing conspiracy network" and announced group pages and admins tied to QAnon will be removed.
I'm ashamed more and more each day that I ever voted Democrat in my life. ONLY THE LEFT is ok censoring free speech. I know nobody on the right who is OK with such ridiculousness. Probably because they are Americans and not fucking communists like so many of these turds.
Go woke go broke. Honesty sells. Joe Rogan and Tuckers ratings climb, while CNN’s tank. Not a coincidence.
All things considered, I think we would all be better off if facebook disappeared.
On FB censorship: I saw a post that showed FB telling the poster their post was blocked because it is "too popular." I thought it strange, as did the poster, until I started reading "Red Handed" by Schweizer. Turns out this is something the CCP does. If a post goes against what they like, they block it if it has too many following it. Stopping popularity in the USA would mean slow walking certain ideas even if the FB censors wouldn't just kill the person's account. The book also showed that Zuckerberg asked Xi at a WH function to name his child and how much Zuck admires Xi. If you use FB, STOP. You are supporting the incursion of the CCP.
When I mentioned free speech in relation to Neil Young’s action trampling on Rogan’s right free speech on Twitter, I was given a lecture that the 1st Amendment only applies to the Goverment and I didn’t know the 1A. I explained that I studied Constitutional Law in law school, I never mentioned the 1A, free speech exists apart from the 1A, and the 1A protects free speech from the government, but that doesn’t mean our rights are not protected from individuals. She blocked me. Young’s actions likely also are actionable tortious interference if there are damages.
BTW, Alex: Speaking of free speech, Mr. Fauci called my wife’s rheumatologist and told him to stop his research on Covid and the jab. Her doctor wanted to tell Fauci to go f*** himself, but he took the high road. Alex, I can give you his name if you want to ask him yourself. I emailed this to you. Search your e-mail. I don’t want to give my contact info here.
And the moral to the story is: "Never bite the hand that feeds you."
Good. None of us really ‘need’ FB to stay in touch with friends and family. That’s just propaganda. Write letters, send emails with photos, talk on the phone, visit in person, text...
Sane people have had their fill of entitled parasites running amok. The collapse in these businesses will be satisfying to watch. Hopefully, their corporate boards & executives are swept into the dustbin of history.
I deleted all my social media accounts (except Twitter) early in the scamdemic and cancelled my one MSM newspaper digital subscription. I now get my news primarily from Twitter, Substack, and various podcasts. I used to watch a local news affiliate on tv to get weather & traffic mostly but completely stopped watching that as well when I saw the nonstop fear propaganda.
I canceled Twitter when they banned Trump, I only use Facebook to check my kids school events - I am using alternative platforms like this one to communicate and learn. Facebook canceled the US Truckers page stating they were QANON and a terror group!
Couldn't be happening to finer companies. Get bent FB and Twitter!
What’s failing more, the censoring or the vaccines?
Sad to go back and look at the tweet that got Alex Berenson banned from Twitter.
“Don't think of it as a vaccine.
Think of it - at best - as a therapeutic
with a limited window of efficacy and
terrible side effect profile that must be
dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS.
And we want to mandate it? Insanity .”
This is how it's always been done; it's how it should have been from the beginning of this nonsense. Continuing to patronize Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram et al, is like going back to a restaurant with crappy food and service over and over...and complaining about it. If you are still on those platforms, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Now there are plenty of alternatives so no excuses. VOTE WITH YOUR WALLET.
This is such gratifying news...
I went on fb on Monday to check out American trucker convoy page and I posted “A heartfelt thank you to all you truckers. I am hopeful that your voices and actions will prevail where others have been ignored. I will go to dc and support you!” And fb banned me for that post. Is this even America anymore! They have taken down the trucker page too. I did contest my ban and they reinstated me but not the point. Never should of been banned in the first place
I was permanently suspended from Twitter but Twitter will not let me close my account, I’ve tried everything to do it, & they won’t give me back any of my photos. They most likely keep all the suspended accounts on their books so it looks like they have many more subscribers than they actually do.
The Real Face Of Evil: 17-Year-Old Sean Hartman Was Killed By The Pfizer Jab. Twitter Removed His Dad's Account For Speaking The Truth
We will be seeing an evolution in "social media". That evolution will progress from the current centralized model (Facebook, Twitter, etc), which tyrannies just love, to a decentralized distributed model in which the users and content providers have the control. It is already happening and the market is figuring that out. Share prices reflect expectations of future earnings. The centralized model is destroying itself because the users/customers are moving to alternatives in the face of censorship. Substack is but one manifestation of that and the model will continue to evolve just as water finds its way around a dam or a virus mutates. That is why CNN and MSNBC are failing and the reason that the traditional networks are seen as less credible. That is why I pay for Alex Berenson's work and other independent journalists' work. I may not always agree with them but they actually do research and cite sources and use logic with their investigative reporting, something that is in very short supply.
Twitter has become so bland and repetitive. Silencing people with 1,000's of followers does not appear to be an optimal strategy for maximizing shareholder wealth.
FINALLY! Was getting so sick and tired of so many saying they were censored on FB and Twitter. Wish I had a dollar for how many times the past 3 years I told people to get the hell off those commie shells. People complain and complain yet they support the very same entity the complain about. I mean WTF!
Deleted my Facebook account 1 month ago, the least I could do to screw the bastards.
Finally people are realizing that FB is not their friend. I have been telling family and friends for years to drop them.
I deleted my account yesterday.
Perhaps experiencing 25% inflation in 1 day will make FB employees more sympathetic to the views of ordinary people.
Left Facebook over six months ago and don't miss it at all....I did not feel free there anymore!
We have a company FB page but I am considering taking it down. No one uses it and it’s the only reason I still have an account. It serves no purpose other than work to maintain & post to zero audience. I am sure many companies are realizing this too.
yep, I'll drop WOKE HERSHY'S Too. I recommend you drop the cheap and unhealthy toxic sugary un-necessary crap they peddle to the masses also. The woke are SO STUPID they'll never allow themselves to connect the dots that they chose their own peril and demise.
Problem is Alphabet is not falling down, instead... Google is the big devil in the tech industry, Fakebook only second.... unfortunately! Alphabet own companies in the biotechnology field, weapon robots and so on. So, not only google and the tube.... far more dangerous then FB, they are almost as dangerous as Gates and friends.
Use other search engines, whenever you go to the Tube select Custom Cookies. Do not accept all because you in hurry or lazy. Use Ads and trackers block plug in as Gosther or similar.
You can't avoid them but you can limit them!
T-Mobile looses my family’s business this month because they now insist their execs get jabbed. WE VOTE WITH EVERY DOLLAR. Who care’s who is in DC?
We will be nailing documents to trees in the middle of night if that's what it comes to because truth always reveals itselffor those who have a love for it. SillyCon Valley can shove it!
Every time I see a picture of Mark Zuckerberg the first thing that comes to mind is evil.
Starve The Beast!!! It's working!!!
I wish everyone who claims they want to take their voices back went to a place like GETTR.
I remember somebody saying "everything woke turns to shit" but I can't quite remember who it was. . .
