Facebook suppresses freedom of expression – but wants to allow political advertising lies

I have been less and less active on Facebook for quite some time now and now is the time to say goodbye and turn my back on Facebook. Most of my friends are hardly active on Facebook anymore anyway. Facebook dies slowly and quietly to itself.

Here are just a few examples of how Facebook deletes harmless comments in general discussions

You can find many stupid examples for “hate speech” here: https://facebook-sperre.steinhoefel.de/

And this was my deleted comments

Some background story to the first comment, facts: https://medium.com/@skang2/neidkultur-does-the-culture-of-envy-harm-germany-f64aa6f9366e

The other post was a post by me on TUI’s Facebook page: A user asked for current business figures, the social media team gave false information. I then posted the link – it was blocked by Facebook.

“Alle Geschäftsberichte der TUI sind öffentlich einsehbar, das scheint wohl selbst das Socialmedia Team hier nicht zu wissen: https://www.tuigroup.com/de-de/investoren/geschaeftsberichte”

Facebook even blocks postings that contain criticism about Facebook

Since so many users collect blocks here because of banal Facebook comments, I found out something. It’s been a while, somewhere I had commented on the photo, even with a smiley face. It’s amazing what Facebook has become with “hate comments”. Farewell freedom of speech. Facebook deletes such banal things, but when it comes to political advertising, Facebook even wants to allow lies: https://www.faz.net/aktuell/wirtschaft/digitec/politische-werbung-facebook-mitarbeiter-kritisieren-zuckerberg-16457424.html What has become of Facebook? I haven’t wanted to get involved in discussions for a long time. It has become a pure advertising platform, but nothing more. I use it almost only for advertising 😀

Translation from german to english

Kind of funny, but still kind of sad

Zuckerberg: What he says and what he does is contradictory – He is simply a liar

If you look at all the post deletions on Facebook – for whatever reason – this post by Mark Zuckerberg can only be a joke.

Here is the original embedded posting for you:

From now on everything on Facebook is “Hate speech” or “spam” – only for political advertising this does not apply

It’s amazing what Facebook has become with “hate speech”. Farewell freedom of speech. Facebook deletes such banal things, but when it comes to political advertising, Facebook even wants to allow lies:

Discussions are hardly possible on Facebook anymore… so it’s even funnier that Facebook is promoting the groups on TV right now. What has become of Facebook? I haven’t wanted to get involved in discussions on facebook for a long time, because facebook is deleting everything. It has become a pure advertising platform, but nothing more. I also used it almost only for advertising 😀

Actually, I have been wanting to delete my profile there for a long time, I think it’s time to do this NOW 🙂 I can not support such a fucking company anymore. At all, there are many privacy and data protection issues with facebook.

Facebook has become totally pointless anyway and has hardly any added value. Facebook is not social – Facebook is the devil in sheep’s clothing.

I think this business behaviour and behaviour of Facebook is so bad that I actually consider to sell or give away my Oculus Quest again.
