Coincidentally, at the same day Facebook shares drops more than 20%, the company decided to block right wing political group pages in Brazil.

Facebook has blocked the pages of a Brazilian political group for allegedly disseminating fake news ahead of presidential elections in Latin America’s largest country.

The social media company, which counts Brazil as one of its largest markets, targeted the Movimento Brazil Livre (MBL) or “Free Brazil Movement”, a rightwing group that championed the impeachment of leftist former president Dilma Rousseff two years ago.

Facebook was deactivating 196 pages and 87 accounts in Brazil, which it said were part of “a co-ordinated network that hid behind fake Facebook accounts and misled people about the nature and origin of its content, all for the purpose of sowing division and spreading misinformation”.

MBL supporters decried the move on social media as “censorship”.
....

Facebook is basically the only social media platform used in Brazil. Instagram/twitter etc are barely used.

MBL uses Facebook as its main communication platform. It is a relevant and organized political group here in Brazil, as they organize protests and virtual campaigns. Their main page was not removed.

Not really. According to a research made by We Are Social/Hootsuite in January 2018:

1. Youtube is the most used one (60%);
2. Facebook is at the second rank (59%);
3. Instagram is just behind (40%).

Indeed. Most people I know have stopped using Facebook completely (including myself) and started using Instagram.

Sandberg will be the fall girl. she will die in jail. She has chosen to prioritize her gang (hillary) at the expanse of the shareholders. she is a domestic enemy world wide.

her, eric schmidt from google and dorsey from twitter are your enemies, mortal enemies... they live and you die, they die and you live. there is no other path.

and remember it ain't about using their plateforms, this is mental weakness... no its about retribution.

-----------------------

fb, twitter, youtube = low iq tools for low iq people... free yourself. punish them and raze what they build because if you think of conquering what they did, you are just like them, just more ruthless and efficient Smiley.

-----------------------



contrary to the facebook... do you agree that saving the private zuck is a great idea following the total VIOLATION OF FINANCIAL DUTY AND RESPONSABILITY by MS sanderberg? yes, zuck, sandberg must end in jail for 40 years for her crimes...

what are her crimes? like mr dorsey or mr schmidt (beyond fucking underage girls), is that they decided to USE THEIR POSITION IN THOSE CORPORATIONS TO PURSUE A POLITICAL AGENDA DETRIMENTAL TO SHAREHOLDERS.

aka they have prioritized their "goals" vs OUR GOALS.

they have betrayed, they must pay, with their lives...

why such leniency toward the (z)fuck? save 1 : kill 3 seems to be a good warning to those domestic enemies. zuck lives and will tell the story when he watched the death of ms sandberg, mr dorsey and mr schmidt.

Execute her zuck, and you save yourself, forget fb, money... it's life and death.

we are feed with them, they censor, they ban, and then what? force vaccinate? mind reading and control? what else? war? cool... but your WALLS will never be wide enough.

remember it ain't trust, just... 2 orphans less...

save yourself, wipe her. jail : 40 years.

and the bitch is down... or you don't?

will see...
