Facebook allows war posts urging violence against Russia

Facebook allows war posts urging violence against Russia

Censoship is not neutral. What is good what is bad  is subjective but Meta change radicaly its rules because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

« As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine we have temporarily made allowances for forms of political expression that would normally violate our rules like violent speech such as ‘death to the Russian invaders.’ We still won’t allow credible calls for violence against Russian civilians, » a Meta spokesperson said in a statement.

Such information is not believable  but it comes from the serious reuter agency.

It is really time to stop using facebook and close account there. It is time to start using alternative for neutral plateform like Fediverse alternative. We can disagree the russian invasion we can support Ukraine but pushing people for violence against specific people and civilians is not acceptable.

Many russian people do not agree with the ‘special operation’ in Ukraine.



Can Social Media Be Saved?

Can Social Media Be Saved?

The New York Times write an interesting article about social media. Can Social Media Be Saved?

We all know that social media and particularly big one, GAFAM one was bad but every people use it. If you don’t have a facebook account you cannot be connected with your friends and family. If you don’t have watsapp you are missing something. Watsapp belong to facebook.

First we realised that what we see is choosen from facebook or twitter. We never or very rarely receive news from some people. Facebook choose what is interesting for us and that is REALLY REALLY frustrating.  This the main reason why I rarely go to facebook I have one account and even few. But I can tell you that I don’t use them. I don’t put personnal information.

The primary problem with today’s social networks is that they’re already too big, and are trapped inside a market-based system that forces them to keep growing. Facebook can’t stop monetizing our personal data for the same reason that Starbucks can’t stop selling coffee — it’s the heart of the enterprise.

Kevin Roose want to share us 3 topics

  • Give Power to the People
  • Create a Social Federation

  • Put Expiration Dates on Social Graphs


This 3 idias are good. The federation still exists and is coming with few networks that communicated together. You have Mastodon the most famous one but you also have Friendica, Hubzilla and Diaspora. But the best idea is the expiration dates. It is not easy to delete all our content older than one year for example or delete simply all. Who propose that option ?

Personaly I have a gnusocial (twitter like) account and Hubzilla. You can follow me if you wish.

Do you have facebook account ? What do you do with it ? Do you experiment federated social media ? What do you think of this 3 ideas ?
