After 5 years of building fans Facebook has officially unpublished our page (3.1 million fans) so we can’t post on it anymore. This is truly an outrage and we are devastated. We will do everything we can to recover our page and fight back. pic.twitter.com/H3AmHTT8Qo

Facebook claims that “domestic actors” have been creating “fake pages and accounts to attract people with shocking political news,” reports Bloomberg.

“The people behind the activity also post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups, often hundreds of times in a short period, to drum up traffic for their websites,” Facebook said in a Thursday blog post. “And they often use their fake accounts to generate fake likes and shares. This artificially inflates engagement for their inauthentic pages and the posts they share, misleading people about their popularity and improving their ranking in news feed.”

Some pages Facebook removed had large followings of real and fake accounts. Nation in Distress, a conservative meme page, was followed by more than 3 million people, according to the Internet Archive, which stores historical versions of websites and other online content. –Bloomberg

That said, not all of the accounts with large followings were conservative; Reverb Press, for example, had over 700,000 followers and constantly attacked President Trump and Republicans, who they referred to as “cheating scumbags.”

A third left-leaning page, Reasonable People Unite, posted a screen shot of a Twitter user who said, “Somewhere in America, a teenage girl is listening to her parents defend Brett Kavanaugh and she is thinking to herself, if something like that happens to me, I have nowhere to go.” –WaPo

The digital nanny state strikes again…

    1. Facebook is as useless as mammary glands on a boar……….Who cares if people take pictures of them brushing their teeth, or swimming in a pool……….Then they have to let everyone know, their hubby is giving them a mixed drink………Only the poor idiots that are egotistical seem to love FB……They do not have other things to do besides sit at a computer all day posting pictures………..

  1. Proof that it is time to break these so called giants up….remember who’s dime created the internet…. “We the People” USA tax payer dollars did and they have used it to become extremely greedy…now they think they are more powerful but need to be destroyed!!!

  2. I hate government regulation, but these companies need to be called out. We DO NOT live in a communist country and they have no right to censor anyone just because they don’t agree with them. We seriously need a conservative tekkie to come along and create competing sites/products for FB, Google, and all the rest. This is despicable, thuggish behavior. They all need to go live in Venezuela as they’re such advocates of that form of government. Maybe they can have toilet paper secretly shipped in?

    1. I used to work for Equitable Life. It started when its founder wanted to found an insurance company and was promptly fired from New York Life at the time.
      In its early history one of its original buildings was burned; but now it is quite a viable company.
      The history of this company can be quite heartening for anybody who wants to start a conservative social media platform.
      In fact, many of the institutions, retail outlets and corporations were founded as a result of past discrimination to set up places where individuals of these discriminated groups can obtain necessary goods and services.
      Let the strength of G-d create this new and beutiful social media platform.

  3. Apparently, I was on their hit list. Have been knocked out for a week or more.

    Very inconvenient. Especially so close to the election.

    1. Well you did not lose anything for that “knock out”………..They did you a favor………They are the same as the liberal media………..They have proved their undesireable means of letting the liberals take their selfies while taking a shower……..

    2. I to have been put in F/B prison for 30 days due tp my remarks on that Muslim/Democrat K Ellison amid the assaulting issues all over the Media .. They didn’t like my pro-Trump status .. To Bad…

  4. One of these companies should create an alternative to Facebook. I would love to, but I don’t have that much technology experience!

  5. any one that loves AMERICA should delete their FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. FACEBOOK IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE WHEN IT BEGAN IT IS NOW OUR COUNTRY DESTROYER. WAKE UP AMERICA. ALSO THINKING ABOUT GETTING RID OF GOOGLE.

    1. Your absolutely right! My father-in-law said 30 years ago that computers would be the downfall of our society. There was no social media then! Look what is happening!

  6. I have been knocked off for over a week and I am assuming it is for participating in pro Trump/ Kavanaugh polls. I had not committed any other of their so called crimes lol. TIME TO BREAK THIS BIG BOY UP, TOO BIG FOR HIS/THEIR BRITCHES. ASAP

  7. Each person who has been blocked by facebook should sue the company for discrimination. Sue individually rather than class action….tie them up in court for years. Stop whining about it and sue.

  8. My Twitter account, @TrumpetingTrump, had 40,600+ followers, including Sean Hannity, etc. Suddenly, my daily number of followers declined – which had never happened since the account was established in 2015. I used to acquire about 40 – 100 new followers per day, and I generally followed back. For the first time, that has reversed. Now, I have 39, 700 – and declining by the day.

    Also, my posts absolutely go *nowhere.* I used to garner hundreds of likes and shares for each post – now, I only get two or three likes, per post. Did I get ‘less clever?’ No, Jack Dorsey, the SJW scum-bag, has shadow-banned me, along with thousands of other Trump supporters.

    Something needs to be done to stop this blatant censorship and violation of free speech rights. I’ve had it.

  9. FB & TWITTER BELIEVE THEIR *POLICIES* ARE ABOVE THE *LAW & CONSTITUTION* > FOR A REASON! THEY ARE INTEGRAL PARTS OF THE & DEDICATED > TO THE *OVERTHROW* OF THE UNITED STATES WHICH MEANS BEING IN *BLOODBATH PARTNERSHIP* WITH THE *RAGING RAD-LIB DEMS* WHO NEARLY PULLED IT OFF DURING THE (OBAMA / CLINTON ISLAMIC CALIPHATE)!
