asking them about social media. It is a little brand awareness game where I ask my normie friends whether they know of any competitor to YouTube or Facebook.
It would seem to me that these two have a virtual monopoly on online video sharing and interpersonal communication.
Few of my normie friends have ever heard of platforms such as GAB or Bitchute, or the fact they were deplatformed by Big Tech companies, among them Google.
The latter, as the parent company of YouTube, denied a service to a potential competitor. This may be legal but monopolies certainly aren’t encouraged in other fields. Mind you, bakers can be tried in court for refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple.
A related poll I ran on Twitter, I got 16 respondents:
I deactivated my Facebook profile last month, my reasons were that I received a 30 day ban for an eight month old post that nobody was seeing. I took it as a clear sign of persecution of my online persona, and refused to use this website.
A number of people I know have deleted their profiles for psychological reasons. Social media is not for everyone. But more recently I came upon another group of people quitting Facebook. American liberals are not happy because the website is not persecuting the right-wingers enough. Their granddaddy, George Soros recently complained Facebook is in cahoots with the Trump campaign. Soros also added that the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg ought to leave the board of the company.
I am amazed, Facebook censored the right-wingers so much, only to be stabbed in the back by the liberals. The following screenshots come from this thread:
