  • I don’t get people sometimes… You only view this from one single perspective. I only hear, “stop using Facebook, easy. Who’s forcing you? It’s your responsibility, not theirs.” The issue is so many people think EVERYTHING needs to be the responsibility of the person consuming the content rather than the corporation that owns the property that the content is hosted on. They are the MOST responsible for filtering their content as to not have, say children stumble upon Gore or porn & potentially traumatize them. I don’t want to hear “don’t be a pussy” or “oh come one” about this, not everything requires a fake-ass staunch, stoic attitude towards the subject. Facebook can easily take down shit they don’t agree with whenever they want, they can put in the work to filter the gore/porn out of their site which is for fucking family/friends. Get a grip please. Oh & Facebook owns a shit ton of what people use in their day-to-day, quitting isn’t easy for a lot of people who have integrated into the ecosystem, I agree you should barely care or use have a real necessity to use it, but people are allowed the freedom to do as they please but the site has responsibilities. Including the fact they actively remove sex worker content yet can’t moderate genuine gore/hardcore porn? Please.

  • Just get off the platform literally. Uninstall it from your phones. Take a break at least. Start unfollowing all the content and “un-recommending” it. It’s not that hard.

  • Queremos censurar lo que sucede? Para hacernos más ciegos? O es que hay mucho contenido tóxico? O estamos inmersos en una sociedad que se volvió tóxica? Porque claramente los datos que arroja FB y otras plataformas son utilizados por su riqueza en información… Así que podríamos definirlo como un espejo en la red de la sociedad actual… Al cual desean censurar? O entendí a medias?

  • It’s up to them where they work, moderate this shit you can probably work at McDonalds and maintain some kind of sanity. The point being why the fuck we are still letting this disgusting platform play with society in the western world the way we do. Facebook and this app and the rest of this shit is controlling too much of the narrative with their algorithms showing us what we “want” to see. Ban advertising and watch how quickly Facebook dies on its fuckin ass or becomes a somewhat healthier platform.
    Dividing people, creating polarized views and pitting us against each other. Facebook is just an online version of what the “news” networks have become, versions of a truth they want to push.

  • It’s all bad and stuff. But it’s also very stupid to sue for this, really retarded. And they are obviously trying to take advantage of situation. Nobody forced them to work there, if they didn’t like the job, there were free to leave any day any minute, or am I wrong? So what are they whining about now?

  • That’s all gross, but c’mon, someone’s gotta do that job. If you don’t like it, stop. No one forced you. They’re suing cause it’s a huge company that’ll settle out of court, and they know it. I don’t have all the information, obviously, but that’s what it sounds like to me
