The Antisocial Aspect Of Social Media

Social media is not only a cancer eating away at our culture, it is also a rigged game. If you’re a conservative, Twitter, Facebook, and Google want you all to go away.

Before the election season got into full swing, Facebook had already made some mild downgrades to reach. Afterwards, when liberal mainstream media outlets were screaming about Russian ad buys and “fake news,” Facebook systematically reduced the reach of all its pages with each algorithm change. By then, most of us understood where it was going long-term. If Facebook killed every conservative page overnight, there would be a huge outcry. On the other hand, if Facebook slowly strangled us to death, we’d fade away and would people even notice?

That gets to the heart of the biggest problem conservatives don’t realize they have.

Social media IS the new public square. It’s the place you go when you want to reach out and find an audience. …….Except Facebook has for all intents and purposes announced that it’s killing off pages. So much for having a conservative voice there.

The only reason I’m on Facebook was for my book page, and the only reason I’m on Twitter is to promote the blog. Ironically, neither platform drives traffic to either the book or the blog.

As James O’Keefe just revealed in his latest sting, Twitter felt comfortable banning pro-Trump accounts and one of his unwitting sources said, “Yeah you look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck. Then you look and parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then you look for stuff that matches that stuff.”

It’s good to know that if you’re conservative, you can spend years building up an audience on Twitter and the liberals at Twitter can arbitrarily throw you off their service because they decide they don’t like your views.

It won’t be long before WordPress starts doing the same. My blogs have been suspended before for wrongthink, and I can absolutely see them graduating to banning certain sites altogether.

  1. Been wondering about WordPress for awhile. When it kicks us all out, things will really change. Eventually, the ISP’s will just cut off access for people who aren’t speaking political correctness. There’s a few years left until the libs take over again. Net Neutrality… Obama’s way of shutting down free speech.

  2. Unfortunately the first amendment applied to the government not privately owned businesses. I just get tired of the hypocrisy of the conservatives having to always accommodate the progressives but the progressives don’t have to reciprocate. Nice gig for the libs!

  3. Only went to facebook to see what family & friends were up to but not any more. I use QWANT to search instead of google or yahoo. I come to sites like this to find out what is really going on in the world.

  4. RG – Leftist control most of big business, Hollywood, and the universities. This will eventually lead to the death of conservatism, because the indoctrination will be everywhere.

    Ronni – Yeah,the GOP has all three branches and still can’t get anything done. It’s insane.

    Cathy – How is that? I downloaded the Brave browser but I need a search engine which isn’t Google or Firefox.
