Facebook is Now Exclusively Reserved For Leftists; Fake News ‘Fact Checkers’ Have Been Activated

A few weeks ago, iBankCoin’s Facebook account had been disabled. Clearly, we cast out because of our political leanings. We do not create news or break any stories. We merely interpret the news as we see fit — all reported on by major media outlets. In other words, we editorialize the news to decipher the bullshit and some cuck at Facebook didn’t like it — so they revoked our access.

The subsequent result of our banning has been a 50% drop in our Facebook traffic and I am perfectly fine with it. After all, it’s their platform and they can do with it as they please with it. I find it laughable when conservatards lament over the left wing controlled social media outlets censoring them, yet do nothing to compete. If you’re unhappy with the exposure you’re getting, create your own media outlet.

Along those lines, Zeropointnow and yours truly have been contributing to Zerohedge for the past three months and have attracted over 8 million page views through the giant that Tyler created — providing cutting edge and precise interpretations of the news in both politics and finance. We are, easily, Zerohedge’s top non-staff contributors, which has resulted in referral traffic for us that dwarfs what we used to get from Facebook.

About a week ago, Facebook rolled out their ‘fake news’ policemen, including left wing ‘fact checker’ such as Snopes and AP. Subsequently, right wingtards are whining about being labeled.

Is it fair?

No.

Will right wingtards get beat the fuck down on Facebook?

Yes.

What will you do about it?

Hopefully, stop using Facebook and make them understand that censorship has consequences.

While Facebook’s monthly active user growth is definitely overseas, the earnings they enjoy, which has driven the stock to record highs, are  predominately made here. Per active user, revenues derived from North American (US, Canada) users are 15x than that made overseas.

The future of Facebook’s growth lies overseas, with North American markets already saturated. It should come as no surprise to anyone using the platform that Zuckerberg and co. have a vested interest in suppressing news that might be deemed ‘anti-globalist.’

    The reality is you post fake news with your commentary. Go read the archives.

      This isn’t a news site. It’s a more like an op-ed.

      They don’t claim to be journalists. You’d think you would understand that. I’m sorry you were getting your news from here. Try the NYT. They should have all kinds of articles to gently caress your liberal emotions and direct your thought processes.

    Fly, you do/did what FakeBook does – ban posters that bring attention to inconvenient facts that you wish to suppress due to your own personal bias; and that does not fare well for free speech. However, your rationale was that it was/is your platform.

        *like “many” !! – Fly will address your question; unless, of course, he’s a hypocrite. Then you will not get your answer.

          I do not ban anyone and if you notice from what I said above, I am not mad at Facebook. I am merely stating facts.

          More to the point, I used to ban people and did so with great vigor — mostly because I thought it was funny and because I was vindictive. This platform is apples to Facebook’s oranges. Even so, since I no longer practice bannings and have freed all prisoners in the iBC prison, your words are meaningless refuse.

    Facebook is irrelevant. It’s for middle-aged women looking for acceptance. All the teenagers are on Snapchat, some like twatter.

    I left facebook last fall. They did dastardly things to my posts but I found a way to trick their bots. Even so, I have less than zero interest in going back there.

    1) Let us all know when you permanently delete your FB account as an act of protest. Because okay, sure.

    2) The banhammer will return.

    3) Lol, Zeroedge. Probably good for site traffic, though. Also explains the recent anti-semitism.
