Facebook revamped its community standards 

Havent been using fb for more than a year know — I knew the site gets fishier every day!!!Keep out if you’ ve got something to say  ahahaha ( the sad sad , kind of desperate sounding laugh)

Can’t believe it was an american who invented it in the first place  ( sorry folks, on this side of the ocean no nation starts with a capital letter ).
But I guess thats the main character of the americanism is the simultaneous self invention and self destructioion.

“Facebook revamped its community standards yesterday. One of the most chilling changes is that users can now be banned for supporting or praising “criminal” activities.

Facebook has said it will remove content in support of violent or criminal organizations. The company also throws out the word “terrorists.” Facebook, being an international company, will end up being the arbitrator of which groups are terrorists and which groups are freedom fighters.

We also remove content that expresses support for groups that are involved in the violent or criminal behavior mentioned above. Supporting or praising leaders of those same organizations, or condoning their violent activities, is not allowed.” – Facebook

Which side is it ok to support in Ukraine? Is it ok to support or condone Palestinians? What about Anonymous, the “cyber-terrorist” collective? Supporting the protesters in Ferguson? Russian dissidents speaking out against Putin? What about supporting the US military, which has been called a terrorist organization by other countries?/…/
