‘Oops,’ Said Faceberg, Part Infinity

So lifelike.

Facebook reverses stance on Holocaust denial, will ban it now

  • Facebook announced it will now ban content that “denies or distorts the Holocaust,” reversing its earlier policy.
  • In announcing the change, Facebook said: “Our decision is supported by the well-documented rise in anti-Semitism globally and the alarming level of ignorance about the Holocaust, especially among young people.”
  • In 2018, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook did not remove Holocaust-denying content because it must allow for the possibility that users are making unintentional mistakes.

Such a brave, edgy stance to take 75 years after WW2 ended, no less.

Some more FB news (I’m running out of time this AM – so have at it):

  • NYTimes: Misinformation on Facebook is more popular now than it was in 2016.
  • Buzzfeed: White supremacists and other militant groups in Michigan returned to Facebook to organize with different names.
  • CNN: Twitter is labeling Trump lies on covid-19, while Facebook does nothing.

    I’ve had two “30-day timeouts” so far, which caused me to adopt 2 new personas, each with his own account: Chris P Shremp, and Maurice “Moe” DeLaune. The problem is, I could only use them when away from home, because FB keeps track of ISPs, and if all 3 accounts are maintained from the same address, they get suspicious, and so they deleted poor Chris’s account after just once logging in from home.
    I know how a lot of you feel about FB, but I just like to have fun with it, and I have a highly-appreciative group of friends who look forward to my “stealing” and posting ‘toons and witty bon mots. If it ever gets to the point where it’s more disgusting than fun, then I’ll quit, but my friends and I have come up with ways to Save the World on several occasions, but we just haven’t been able to convince anyone with the Power or Authority to even listen to us, let alone implement our procedures.

    Doesn’t mean we’ll quit trying. And BTW, a lot of my submissions that Kevin uses come directly from FB, so that means I’m doing all the heavy lifting, while you guys and gals reap the rewards. Or whatevs. Lolz.
