On March 19, Internet marketing company fishbat, Inc. responds to the controversial activity revolving around Facebook’s actions against conservative group “Chicks on the Right.”
Conservative social media blackouts are becoming more common on a variety of platforms – including Twitter and Google-owned YouTube. Problems frequently arise when users that disagree with the viewpoints of other users choose to report them as spam. The article suggests that organized “flagging campaigns” will overwhelm sites like Facebook and Twitter’s algorithm-based systems, automatically shutting down the flagged sites with no public explanation.
“The right to free speech is a powerful weapon,” comments fishbat CEO Clay Darrohn. “There are rules to using this privilege that should be acknowledged and respected. You can’t cry fire in a crowded room, can you? Putting people in danger or taking advantage of any freedom can be just as dangerous as taking away rights.”
Darrohn asks social media users if they believe that their accounts are void of any rules put in place by social media sites like Facebook. “Is social speech freedom of speech? Can you say what you want even if you sign the dotted line when using sites like Facebook? I think not.”
