    Because neither our, nor Wonderer's personal perception if or if not it is worthy to be turned down for graphic violence counts.

    There is a lot of content taken off facebook, because of being too graphic, or because of too much skin / nudity, as per FB's standards.
    "I" do not agree with them at all times.
    But "I" do not run FB, and "I" do not determine their stupid standards. Neither do you.
    Thanks from Panzareta and Madeline

    Well, John, in fairness, you are inviting comment. And not everyone is going to share your perspective here. So, if you want to discuss it, you have to be willing to entertain other viewpoints. If you only want commentary that agrees with you, then you're likely to be disappointed.

    I am not looking for commentary that agrees with me.

    I am looking for commentary in context with the topic and free of personal attack, flame baiting, and thread derailing.

    That's why Facebook is dying.
    Oh FB is dying... well then, probably a bad strategy to put your ad onto a dying social platform.. she should pick a different one.

    Now of course FB is not dying, not even a bit, at this moment.

    If Facebook censors conservatives, then why do my conservative friends keep sharing pro-trump, anti-liberal stuff on Facebook? This allegation of Facebook censorship of the right is a bunch of hooey.

    Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.

    Madeline's comment was none of those things. She's taking the stance that FB is a private entity and free to allow or disallow content as they see fit. Sure, we can argue about the wisdom or fairness of that. But that's a legitimate stance -- one we on the right often embrace in other contexts.

    It's not an all or nothing proposition. That they may very well be censoring SOME conservative content doesn't automatically mean they're censoring ALL conservative content.

    So are you saying FB didn't censor Elizabeth Heng's political ad?

    Got any proof for such a claim?
