Imagine the horror if the post office took letters you sent and instead of delivering them, secretly threw them in the trash.
Thats what I strongly suspect is happening on social media networks like Twitter, Facebook and others run by activist liberals who appear to be discriminating against conservatives.
Its called shadow banning or stealth banning where users posts are blocked from appearing in followers news feeds.
I fear this type of deceptive censorship is happening to me, as well as scores of other conservatives throughout the country including Prager University, an educational company whose ads promoting right-leaning videos were blocked by Twitter in February.

It doesn’t really matter.
They won’t win.
Can’t win an argument? Try “la la la la la can’t hear you!” with your fingers in your ears. It’s snowflake friendly and snowflake approved.
The PO is a government agency. FB and their ilk are for-profit private businesses.
Apples to road apples.
Once upon a time we probably thought the expression “net-neutrality” was suppose to protect against this kind of censoring, but it meant something entirely different.
"Appear to be..."
Yeah. Just like that big, shiny orb that rises in the East every morning appears to be the Sun.
Some things actually ARE obvious.
Social media McCarthyism
It won't be that hugh or series, and the poster might not be that much of a looser after all.
This makes them a Political Action Committee and they should be required to follow all FEC laws.
"...and the Elephant Man had a little puffiness around the eyes."
Is there an alternate to FaceBook? Or, is there a chance that FaceBook will reform and honor the first amendment?
I use FaceBook to communicate with friends and relatives all over the world. I am ready to delete all my files and get off. I am starting to agree with friends that have never used FB.
The application is a great way to share photos and activities. Many of my friends are far leftists who post the most outrageous junk!
I have stayed on FB for the sake of a few friends and relatives who are in their 80s and 90s.
Someone else is likely better suited to answer. I have never used Facebook. I suppose I am an internet dinosaur in a sense but I use(d) e-mail when I wanted to communicate and limited for the most part communications through that method.
No and no. Diamond and Silk are still banned because they are dangerous.
Google scans every eMail to gather data. They don't actually read them but look for key words and before long because you mentioned going to that steak house, there will be popup adds for competitors or junk mail with coupons and so forth.
Political opinions can be manipulated just like our buying decisions of any product.
