Yesterday, Facebook removed a Donald Trump fan page with 3.276 million members. The “Donald Trump is Our President” page administrator, Mark Sidney, noted that the group spent $100,000 on Facebook advertising to build the page.
We believe that Facebook is, once again, attempting to manipulate the information available to the public related to U.S. politics and elections.
If Facebook is going to delete user groups from their platform, CloutHub® is happy to give them a home. In response to this latest, egregious censorship activity by Facebook, CloutHub® created a solution.
Our current Red Room has been changed to the Trump 2020 room to accommodate those Facebook has silenced, and our Blue Room has been changed to the Dems 2020 Room for Democrats to support their favorite candidates in the primary. Once the Democratic party has chosen a candidate, the room will again be renamed to honor their choice.
CloutHub® CEO Jeff Brain explained the timing of the changes, “We have been increasingly concerned at how Facebook attempts to control the flow of election information online. All voices deserve to be heard. At this time, we decided to make these changes to help ensure voters have a platform where they are safe from being silenced. The name changes have already been made and are in the app store approval process now. We remain committed to empowering the free flow of information in the political process for everyone, regardless of their political views or opinions.”
