Will there even be a Facebook in a year?
Playboy is the latest company to give Facebook the boot as the tech giant continues to suffer the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the ensuing #DeleteFacebook initiative.
The decision was announced late Tuesday night with the company saying it had deactivated all accounts managed by Playboy Enterprises. The move will see more than 25 million fans deprived of their Playboy chosen pages when they next visit Facebook.
There have been a lot of people coming out recently and talking about dropping Facebook. I mean we all know they’ve been stealing users’ personal info and selling it to companies and the government, but only now are people acting outraged by it. Because of Drumpf and Cambridge Analytica.
“The recent news about Facebook’s alleged mismanagement of users’ data has solidified our decision to suspend our activity on the platform at this time. There are more than 25 million fans who engage with Playboy via our various Facebook pages, and we do not want to be complicit in exposing them to the reported practices.” Playboy said in a statement. “That is why we have announced that we will be leaving Facebook’s platform, deactivating the Playboy accounts that Playboy Enterprises manages directly.”
Cambridge Analytica data scandal aside, Playboy also noted that it has long found it difficult to express its “values” on the social media network “due to its strict content and policy guidelines.” As a result, Playboy said it has been forced to “alter Playboy’s voice in order to meet Facebook’s views of what is and is not appropriate on its platform.”
What strikes me as bizarre is that nudity and softcore porn are not allowed because of decency concerns or whatever.
Back when I had a Facebook, I was subjected to a constant tirade of pro-gay, pro-trans virtue-signaling from my peers and from the ads that Facebook ran among all the anti-White bilge and pro-refugee crap as well.
And it’s like, if you’re going to go full liberal, go full liberal. At least give some tits to look at while you stuff all the other degeneracy down our throats.
But no, it’s a selective moral puritanism that Facebook likes to practice. Nothing that red-blooded straight White men might find attractive allowed. Only the non-fun kind of degeneracy.
So anyway, I’m all for Playbook dropping Facebook. And I think it’s a sign of things to come.
Facebook used to be trendy and cool – now its got the reputation of being only for Boomers sharing pictures of their grandkids or cats and fat chicks showing how much pizza they stuffed down their mouths while out on the town getting drunk.
Playboy and other brands that are seen as cool – like Elon Musk – are dropping them, so that means the normies will follow soon.
Game over, Zuckerberg.
