There’s apparently a growing movement to cancel your FB account & try to find an alternative social media venue where they won’t allow spying on us, won’t censor political movements, & won’t peddle our private data. The reasons are compelling. But the problem is that FB & Twitter are the venues where Palestinians, Kashmiris, Rohingya, Uyghur & others are reaching out to educate others about who they are & what they’re struggling for. Where else could they go & get such a hearing? It’s a damn conundrum because FB snooping & alliances with repressive governments also bring activists undesirable attention. Until they find political forums as powerful as FB & Twitter, the options don’t seem optimal.
