Shocker: Republicans hurt more than Democrats after Facebook algorithm changes

In perhaps the least surprising news to come out of the Facebook crap Republicans have seen a sharper decline in interactions with users than Democrats after Facebook’s algorithm changes made in January.  Via The Western Journal:

After Facebook’s January algorithm changes, pages associated with members of both major parties saw a significant decrease in interactions with readers, but the Facebook pages of Republican members of the House and Senate were impacted measurably more than those of their Democrat counterparts.

The exclusive report showed that the interaction rate on Republican congressional Facebook pages decreased by 37 percent, compared to a change of just over 27 percent on Democrat-operated pages.

The study goes into a lot more detail on the types of decreases.  I don’t think anybody is surprised by this result.  Mark Zuckerberg’s views are well known and he cannot be trusted.  Forget freedom of speech for a second, privacy concerns alone should be enough to get you off the platform.  Couple that with 1A and my sympathy can only extend so far for those whose privacy and rights are abused by FB.

The Cabal has woken up since the election and they are cracking down hard on all avenues that President Trump used to his advantage to reach potential voters.  Since they cannot win the war of ideas and arguments they’re not surprisingly going the censorship route.  Many think sites like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter should be treated as public utilities and regulated as such.  I’m not sure I agree with this, but maybe it’s the best route at this point.  These sites like to tout they are all about freedom of speech because it sounds good, but the reality is they are censoring all the time, and when people are shadow banned or censored outright they like to then say they’re a private company and it’s their right.  Sorry, you can’t have it both ways.
