    Facebook Censoring Political Speech

    I personally don't use it, but apparently this content was removed. Is this common?

    Facebook is like the mall. A "public" space that Facebook owns. They can censor what ever they want.

    i understand that, just wondering how common it is. If they are going to ban something like this, I think they'd be spending an awful lot of time banning various political speech.

    It depends from what I have learned....Depends on how many people report or complain on something.
    This seems to hit the never of a few people

    I personally do not see anything wrong with it . I mean it's the truth isn't it ?There are more offensive things on facebook than that .

    It's my understanding that if it gets enough complaints it get taken down. Nothing to do with political.

    I have heard of them removing things for political reasons a number of times. Will see if I can dig up some examples. I wasn't surprised when I heard about this one.

    It's like Wickabee said, if Facebook receives enough complaints about something, they'll take it down. It happens to a lot of those chain things, not just political ones.

    Here are a couple of articles. There are lots more if you google "facebook political censorship". They go back for years.
