  1. Sooner or later, Facebook will be forced to block everything and everyone due to objectionable content in some form or another. With nothing left to ban, it will then be forced to ban itself due to total lack of approvable content, thus reducing Facebook to the Internet equivalent of a singularity – a black hole.

  2. That is just the tip of the iceberg. A local newspaper Fake News that uses Fccebook to login to post, or even click you like a comment, reports users he doesn’t like to Facebook and they lock down accounts all the time and then it is a major hassle to get them reopened. Does it all the time and Facebook has to be complicit. These people are total control freaks. I have heard it from too many people for it to not be deliberate and systematic censorship of opinion that doesn’t fit their agenda.
