The war on fake news, or should we say the war on free speech is in full throttle right now as Facebook continues to suspend accounts and outright ban the use of certain websites on its platform.
Here at OYE
Facebook’s community standards are very broad and allow at their discretion to literally ban anything they wish too, without appeal.
Facebook is not alone in the ongoing effort to shut down free speech and narratives that are contradictory to that of state and Government narratives. Twitter, YouTube, Patreon and Instagram are just a name a few who are also banning thousands of content providers and activists every day.
The internet is still free and open, however because these platforms have monopolised the way in which the vast majority of people communicate and read their news it is now allowing them to monopolise information.
But as I said earlier the Internet is still free and open and we do have a choice where we goto for our daily information fix.
At this point we are still using Twitter as a major platform to distribute content, however there are new social networking platforms popping up all the time attempting to do away with censorship and the social engineering that comes with it.
At this point we highly recommend Minds.com, you can find us there HERE
Minds has recently introduced their own cryptocurrency token using Ethereums ERC-20 contract. This allows an internal currency within the network allowing users to earn from their posts and tip other posts. It can also be used to increase your own visibility on the platform.
Sign up and have a look, it’s free, it’s uncensored and you can find us there!
