I have deactivated facebook. The only utility I have from the Faceborg is messenger (snapchat and instagram went ages ago), and as soon as I can that will go too. Then I will delete the account. I can tolerate a level of censorship from the NZ authorities — I can vote to get them out. But not from the French.
So far, Facebook has cooperated with French justice on matters related to terrorist attacks and violent acts by transferring the IP addresses and other identification data of suspected individuals to French judges who formally demanded it.Reuters.
Following a meeting between Nick Clegg, Facebook’s head of global affairs, and O last week, the social media company has extended this cooperation to hate speech.
“This is huge news, it means that the judicial process will be able to run normally,” O told Reuters in an interview. “It’s really very important, they’re only doing it for France.”
O, who said he had been in close contact with Clegg over the last few days on the issue, said Facebook’s decision was the result of an ongoing conversation between the internet giant and the French administration.
Since his nomination as minister in March, O has made the fight against hate speech online a key priority through regular contacts with Facebook’s top executives, including founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook declined to comment.
Firstly, you do not need facebook. Go for a walk instead. Use email. Secondly, Facebook can and will — along with other social media — be used as a weapon against you. Thirdly, anything can become hate speech, particularly when the woke are running governments.
Big Brother is here. Look for something like this in Soviet Canuckistan, if Glorious Leader Trudeau wins a second term come October 2019.A swift sunrise.
And “Hate speech”?– a huge catch all for pretty much anything that the elites & their brainwashed social media & activist minions find “problematic” and/ or upsetting. In 2019, truth, or a different opinion, or an non-FaceGoogTwitBook approved thought, and reality itself are now “hate speech”.
