Skip to comments.Boycott Facebook
Posted on 08/24/2018 9:01:15 AM PDT by bboop
I am really upset by Facebook's (et al!) censorship of conservative voices, and of SPLC or whatever it is being the 'lens' through which they judge. I think a nation-wide boycott for one week would send a message.
Why nibble at the fringes? Take down the SPLC.
Why limit it to a week? I don’t use it. Never have. Don’t ever intend to. Find some other way to stay in touch or watch cat videos.
I don’t really do “boycotts”. But that being said, I was so fed up with the nonsense at Facebook that three weeks ago I disabled my FaceBook phone app. The result is that I have not gone there since. I guess it’s an “out of sight, out of mind” sort of thing.
Concur. Me either, what you said.
And yet your life continues to go on yes?
Boycott? Pffft! How about criminal RICO and Anti-Trust charges?
I went elk hunting for three weeks last December. During that time, I wasn’t on facebook. I realized I didn’t miss it. I have not been back since, and don’t plan on ever going back.
While some of the businesses I patronize advertise and have pages on facebook, I can access them other ways.
I would like to delete my account, but am not sure how to go about it. Or, should I leave it dormant?
Everyone needs to close their accounts. All my photos and history are gone now. Fine.
Oddly, I have more free time. Facebook is to the internet what Doritos are to food.
This is why the left is kicking our asses - many of them are willing to lie, cheat, steal and fight in the streets. We are worried about not having fakebook for a week.
Evil can only ever be countered with violence - at one level or another.
I have a dormant account that I never really used. It prevents someone else from using your name. They tried to steal mine and I had to reverify my id.

Social media sites or selling information on user data sites?
I have stopped FB.
Why spend a lot time singing to a choir there, just because you know their names and can sometimes see their faces, when you can sing to a choir here without wild algorhythms swirling and ready to snatch what you write?
Yes, some postings get censored here, but far, far from the systematic censorship that has been imposed at FB.
Facebook has 2.2 BILLION users. A week long boycott of a thousand, ten thousand, even a hundred thousand won’t even be noticed.
99% of them aren't concerned with politics. They may be influenced in some way by Facebook political manipulation of news feeds but most don't see it or use it as a political tool.
A Conservative Republican boycotts would amount to less than a drop in the ocean.
The problem is Facebook is 'boycotting' Conservatives and Republicans.
Had an account years ago but only to use for FR. I haven’t used it in forever.
I hear ya. Enough of my crap is already out there on the net. I don’t need anybody else watching me. Had my ID stolen twice already. Once at work and once at home depot.
I have about 40 pages of boycotted companies. Hasn’t slowed down my shopping as there’s always an alternative.
The younger crowd has already left FB and say it’s only for grandmas sending their grandkid pics to everyone. FB is committing suicide with the last of their users.
I don’t believe you can anymore you can disable your account or to perminatly delete it you have send a request to have it removed when you die.
