What do we do when Facebook is the Fake News?

Last Update: March 19, 2019

I've come across facebook creating fake news on two issues in the past two days, the first one is 5G!!! So with google and facebook taking over 'truth' are you guys ok with that?

Facebook reporting open to abuse

Have you seen the popup box that opens up when you click the arrow beside someone's name, something we sort of always wished for at WA but out there on facebook it is open to real abuse where industry and information wars and multi-billion dollar business depending often on establishing 'the truth'.

As you can see there I am in blocking an abusive stranger who doesn't like that I've posted independent science on 5G to a group, now see what happened when I clicked on the arrow beside his profile, I was presented with a menu and the option to report him to facebook instead of just kicking him out. This menu where they allow you to report 'fake news' and other things is exactly in line with the announcement by Google as to how it is going to 'organise' information going forward

What happens next if you click 'fake news', well I found that out yesterday when I was sharing a video from my timeline, I was told it was fake news but it wasn't and I wasn't impressed at how they came to the conclusion either or how I was stopped from sharing it!

Facebook wouldn't let me share a video where firefighters testified to harm from cell towers

When I went to share a video another popup told me there was an update on this, did I really want to share it?! So curious, I looked at the update and was on something called 'lead pages' and they said they had given it to 'a journalist' who said it was 'fake news' and underneath that there was a lot about Erin Elizabeth pushing the video as the harm of 5G when it was 2G. It also went on to talk about all the other stuff she had done, but the video was nothing about Erin Elizabeth [who I've called out many times for her slimey marketing] the video was testimonies from firefighters about getting ill when their workplace had a celltower near it and how they stopped more celltowers getting put up there. And I did not get the video from her, I got it from a science site!

So just because Erin had used that video it now was deemed 'fake news', and then facebook took the opportunity to remove that hard evidence from the discussion on 5G where it is actually a vital piece of evidence, and they used what - a 'journalist' to give them that authority.

Bear in mind Google stated last week in the Sunday Telegraph UK that it had teams of 'doctors and nurses' going through health sites to 'verify' them and do you realise that even medical researchers will state that those practicing medicine are at least 20 years behind the science, not to mention alternatives like herbs that cannot be patented so never get taught to them as viable options for treatment even though there is science coming out now to prove they work as well and at times better.

So I went ahead and defied facebook to share my 2G evidence anyway but guess what, it didn't let me, that post never appeared, is it a matter of time before they just removed it?! We always had members complaining about being in facebook jail for silly reasons but I think we need to slap facebook in jail - how do I get that 'fake news ' off this video because it is not at all fake news?

What next?

Well as you can see we have the opportunity now to report each other, if I don't like what you said then boom I can get you investigated by some biased person who will judge you and discredit you - just like Jim came in to the group and in one swoop gave his uninformed opinion that independent science was wrong on the issue of 5G, even when the chairman of the FCC admitted to Senator Blumenthal they had invested zero dollars in independent safety testing of 5G, facebook AND google have the right to deem what is fake...hm

Well google said it was game over if people left google...yet we were here before on leaving facebook and we sort of thought it was useful and made money...well it looks like those days are numbered, they are too big and we need alternatives not connected to them, and maybe even a world where we can survive without being connected to any of them, because the move seems to be to get us dependent on them.

ps notice I didn't even mention the second censorship issue going on with facebook in the news at the moment - because for a couple of years now we are not even allowed mention the 'V' word - what happened to freedom of speech, it is 2019 and we can get struck out, locked out, cyber murdered for mentioning anything they've deemed false...and they are going to cover every subject, is the promise/threat.

Another thought-provoking post, Mary, very refreshing.

I guess in terms of marketing we are like modern day gladiators going into the arena, hopefully, we navigate our way through it all.

Rewarded with that all-important thumbs up.

Initially, the concept even in its raw state of friends being able to share and connect was brilliant where did it flip on its head?

As it has progressed we have this evolving dichotomy, which is forming its own self-justifying momentum.

When we have large organizations becoming bigger than the game, well history is littered with shipwrecks and civilizations that are no more.


The only thing that they don't get is that they are sowing the seeds of their own demise, they need help to recognize that.

Post an image of Michelangelo's David and a takedown is imminent, a post of a guy armed with a go pro and gun rampaging gets shared over a million times.

That is not a sustainable eco-environment.

One of the founders of Google's motto was to " deliver people more than they expected " for a long time that was and to a degree is still the case.

However, if you rise above it and shift away from your core concepts, then you are on a slippery slope, providing folks with the most relevant results for their individual queries is such a noble cause and gesture.

When you jump the fence and give folks what you think that they should or should not see, by your self appointed majesty, maybe good for the bottom line it is not sustainable nor does it enhance and enrich our societies in today's world.

We are just way too connected, we see it, they do not " hey dudes you are standing there with no clothes on, in the nude, the modern-day emperors of the online worlds ".

Stepping out on a limb, the Google, Facebook, and Twitter Et al, we see today will not be the same beasts in the ensuing 12 to 18 months, there is a pushback happening.

#pushback.

A bit off topic sorry, no wonder I don't get any engagement, oh well back to the cave.

lol, it's flippin war, I'm just hearing Ireland was offered as a 'trial and test bed' for wireless communications 2 years back, trials being allowed on the public...and I thought countries had rights...so it's not just google that took them away then, though they are all connected as google is into 5g from the sky and basically when everyone slips into their phone it'll be into the google abyss

v with an ax will give the pronounciation, literally like in the movies, they are scanning for all references to this! Yet as someone who has had an adverse reaction and landed in the medical bin I have to say the banned side are right on this one, pure logic, all meds kill a percentage and they are being forced on huge numbers...

#pushback...it's a push getting peeps to wake up...I may need a cave if we don't stop those satellites ;)

Hi Mary. Facebook can be used for good and bad. There is a lot of fake stuff being passed around by people sharing posts that fit their outlook; what they believe, and so the fake stuff get passed on an on. There is a lot of good news to and I believe there are some that do their best to share stories that check out.
When you add in the way Facebook seems to color the news they pass it is troubling.
To be honest I don't think one can get a lot of help that drives traffic to sites through Facebook shares.
Guess that is why we need to be always vigilant in finding new ways to connect with people.

Facebook and other social networks are actually the spread of false news networks and tools to track people in everything they do on the internet. This is not just my opinion, there are probably hundreds of millions who think that. In fact, big daily newspapers , news agencies are false news agencies. Information is widely used by media corporations, but also by secret services that censor and control them.

Yes, so it is everywhere in the world. People are manipulated by well-engineered software, in fact we are transformed into some buyers with no face and name, just some numbers in an ocean of customers.

Thanks for the informative post, Mary. It certainly is getting a bit too scary out there in cyberspace. Twitter bans and shadow bans a number of people that go against their beliefs.

I personally use a browser that does not collect information. They are kind of like a middleman between the searcher and Google.

I guess it's not really a browser; it's a search engine. Startpage.com

Excellent post! I shut down my Facebook account in 2017 because of their spying, selling private information, and censoring misconduct. It's far worse today. Unfortunately, I couldn't convince the rest of my family to do the same. -Mark

we are on borrowed time with any platform, we need neutral resources and platforms and not feed corrupt ones, people rely on them way too much and enjoy it - imagine google actually admitted what they were doing and that they would go slowly so people wouldn't leave - they can say that out loud and still people don't notice...!

Good afternoon Mary,

It seems our freedom is flying out of the window. Let's close the window.

Hi Mary, I see a lot of complaints like this on youtube about facebook especially about political points of view. What we ( I ) am learning is that I was right about the fact that these social networks are not public forums but that they are there to watch what society is doing and exert ITS OWN CONTROLS AND AGENDA. While I do have a facebook page I do nothing with it. There is some scuttle butt in various other types of social that the big three, fb, twtr , and instg are actually engaged in concert with NWO and other intl agys. you might think not but look up thorium on the internet and ask yourself why we are not hearing more about it as a source for nuclear energy instead of the dirty forms that are being used.
