Skip to comments.Shadow Ban: PragerU Reveals Immediate 99.9999% Drop in Facebook Reach
Posted on 08/17/2018 2:11:12 PM PDT by Red Badger
Conservative non-profit group PragerU appears to be facing Facebook censorship, as many recent posts from group are suffering from a 99.9999 percent drop in engagement based on Facebooks own dashboard. The Social Media Masters of the Universe also pulled down two PragerU videos, which it labeled hate speech.
Echoing the apparent page limitation of conservative commentating duo Diamond and Silk, the conservative non-profit group PragerU which produces educational videos on conservative issues appears to have found its Facebook pages reach drastically limited. The groups Facebook page boasts three million followers, but its most recent posts have been seen by almost none of its followers, according to the Facebook dashboard.
PragerU social media influencer Will Witt posted a screenshot of the Facebook pages dashboard which shows a number of statistics relating to posts from the page, including the reach posts have and how many users have clicked on links in the posts. According to the photos posted by Witt, PragerUs last nine posts have reached between one and three of their followers. Previous posts have reached between 50,000 and 95,000 of PragerUs followers.
Witt also posted a number of screenshots of PragerU videos that have been removed by Facebook for hate speech. The videos that were removed include one titled Make Men Masculine Again, and Where are the Moderate Muslims?
Witt said in his Facebook post: Our last 9 posts have been completely censored reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two of our video posts were deleted last night for hate speech including a post of our recent video with The Conservative Millennial, Make Men Masculine Again.

According to some Freepers banning conservatives on social media is cool and the right thing to do.
Dennis Prager is a very level-headed, scholarly guy.
He ain’t no Alex Jones.
Monopolistic public utilities such as Facebook need the heavy breathe of the federal government on their necks.
Hey! I know! Let’s make conservatives a protected class. Then FB, YouTube, and all other social media has to allow normal thinking people to post routine videos and comments.
Better yet; shut down FB completely along with every other conservative limiting social networking site until they shape up and fly right.
You just have to leave Facebook and Instagram. They are democrat party tools. Just train yourself to stop using them. Nobody really wants to see your pictures anyhow.
I just searched, found, liked and followed anything to do with the word “Prager” on FB ... I USED TO get him and I realize now, I haven’t in a month or so.
I have a prediction one of those will show up. Let’s see if I’m right.
[I just searched, found, liked and followed anything to do with the word Prager on FB ... I USED TO get him and I realize now, I havent in a month or so.]
But, but, but the liberal media says shadow-banning isn’t real.....
Shorting face book seems like easy money.
Well, then it would be harder to justify the numerous and widespread bannings that have occurred on this site over the years.
Stop using these sites
Create our own sites and apps
Facebook is a utility, just as Ma Bell was determined to be. It’s past time to break up the monopoly.
No it won’t. This is a private site for conservatives. Facebook and Twitter are publically traded stocks and are supposed to be open everyone, not just liberals.
Facebook deletes Prager University from my feed every time it appeals. It’s there for a second, and then just disappears.
Prager U has a number of different speakers, all having subject matter expertise and eloquent delivery. “Hate” cannot describe any of them or the content. FB is planning its own demise.
That’s what I thought too.
It’s frustrating that Facebook, Twitter etc apparently are censoring conservative thoughts and ideas.
But, I also wondered why Prager or anyone else, can’t “broadcast” if that’s the right terminology, in a different manner, from different sites, and bypass the gatekeepers of Facebook.
I’m.not a techie so don’t know all the ins and outs. But it seems like a good idea to go around Facebook censorship.
The point isn’t that you and I won’t find other places to go for Conservative messages.
The point is that they are disrupting our ability to go out and win converts.
Either FB needs to be shut down like most other countries would do ( will have many correlate societal benefits!) or else - my much preferred solution someone needs to set up a really good competitive service. They could make a TON of money as theres certainly room for a couple more large websites of that character ( and this would be a nice free market solution, without involving government ).
