As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following Opinion Editorial written by Salena Zito and published by NYPost.com:

At 7:55 a.m. Thursday morning, I posted a story I had written for The New York Post on both Facebook and Twitter. It was a reported piece on how people who voted for President Trump were feeling after both former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his lawyer Michael Cohen found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Within two hours I started receiving a handful of notes from people who are friends on my personal Facebook page that their posting of my piece, entitled “Why Trump’s supporters won’t care about Cohen and Manafort,” had been removed.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sometimes the removal was accompanied by a message from Facebook. “Spam” was the most common reason given, but a couple of people were told Facebook removed the post because “it did not follow our Community Standards.”

The post was gone.

Why? Facebook had given me no reason why it would censor a story, and asking them for an explanation wasn’t easy.

First I politely published a public Tweet requesting some direction. No answer. I noticed that their Direct Message was open on Twitter so I asked in that format. No answer. Then I turned to their own page and asked through a series of confusing messaging options that appear to require a Ph.D. to access let alone find, still no answer.

Ninety minutes after removing it, the article reappeared as if nothing ever happened.

No one told me why it was taken down. No one told me why the piece suddenly reappeared with no explanation of what had happened.

Facebook offers no transparency for its methods or decisions.

  1. Sadly facebook also listens to your private conversations on their messenger too! I was interrupted one day with a conversation with my son where they accused me of spamming when he and I were chatting privately…facebook is very very evil !
