    They want to censor conservative speech just like YouTube and Twitter. Repeal Section 230 if they want to become publishers and they can be sued into extinction. Free speech for everyone.

    No one under 30 watches tv. Their only advertising platform choices are FB/Instagram, Youtube, and Twitter. They're pretty much guaranteeing no one sees their ads any more

    We can all do our part and delete our accounts because if we truly want change we have to work together and force these powerful white men that they have to eliminate the hate and lies they are intentionally spreading that are hurting the rest of us and one way is to hit them where it hurts…

    good and bad here. sounds like a good excuse to suppress opposing views on certain topics simply because the comments section gets unruley. get ready for more free speech to be suppressed and cleansed to FBs liking.
