Facebook — Why are they allowed to suspend conservatives?
Since Facebook is a platform, not a content provider, why are they allowed to suspend conservatives, with no notification and no appeal, just for stating the truth about the corona virus or Ginsburg and her advocating the age of consent be lowered to age 12? Aside from being censorship, shouldn't they be held to the same standard as other platforms? And, if they elect to be the purveyor of truth as they see it, shouldn't the first amendment apply as they chose to be content providers via censorship?
I was suspended today, either due to a covid post or telling the truth about Ginsburg and her desire to lower the age of consent to 12...either way, by doing this, Facebook chose to go from a platform to a content provider and as such, is no longer afforded the protections of being a platform only. I was not given the opportunity to respond or appeal, I was just locked out of the format.
Isn't this action, acting as both a content provider and a platform the very thing the Presidents executive order was about? Shouldn't Facebook be taken to task for arbitrarily violating civil rights, equal protection and denying appeal process? Thank you.
