On censorship (2)
by Patrick O'Brien
Facebook activists complaining their posts and images have been deleted or blocked — sound familiar? Facebook’s “terms and conditions” drove me away in September 2011 and I published a post at the time [Facebook Fail] outlining my reasons for switching to Google-Plus.
My Facebook account is seldom used . . . and, just today, yet another reminder why:
Someone shared my ANZAC Day post on Facebook. When their friends clicked on the Link they were confronted with a warning that my Site may be unsafe. I checked it out. Yep, there it was, a warning from Facebook plastered right across the top of my post: “Facebook thinks this Site may be unsafe,” it says.
Unsafe? — unsafe for what?? — our minds???
