Facebook Folds: Will Now Police Speech After Advertiser Exodus

Facebook Folds: Will Now Police Speech After Advertiser Exodus. By Tyler Durden.

After holding itself out as a bastion of (semi) free speech, or at least the most hands-off in Silicon Valley, Facebook reversed course on Tuesday amid an advertiser exodus thanks to the Stop Hate for Profit campaign.

In addition to policing whatever their definition of ‘hate speech’ from now on and vowing to ‘get better at removing hateful content,’ CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg will be meeting with leaders from groups including the NAACP and the Anti-Defamation league, which organized Stop Hate for Profit. …

Sandberg claims that the changes are “not for financial reasons or advertiser pressure, but because it is the right thing to do.”

Sure. Full on censorship by activists is the path to a happy and prosperous society.
