Facebook stands for giving everyone a voice. I think you’d be making an error if you thought this meant Facebook stands for encouraging free speech on its platform. ‘Giving everyone a voice’ probably includes making sure everyone feels comfortable to express themselves. You know, making sure they’re not silenced by any nasty horrid ideas!
And don’t forget, serving that ‘diverse’ community probably means making sure nobody is ‘made to feel unwanted’ by, say, reading about how good a wall on the Mexican border would be.
Luckily for facebook given their trending topics take ‘newsworthiness’ into account, the newspapers have done most of the work of suppressing the horrid ideas already! Great!
You know what’s not newsworthy – whatever’s on breitbart today. Or any day.
