As much as I use facebook on a daily basis and really get a lot of promo out on there for my band and online endeavours, its really become the socialist network these days. A lot of things really shit me up the wall about the social networking giant. I don’t think I’m alone in feeling this way too.
IS FACEBOOK THE SOCIALIST NETWORK?
The world is arguing about the corona virus. People just arguing about whatever to feel like ther’re being heard. Facebook manipulating posts and news to suit their agenda have pushed a lot of people away from the social media giant. I believe I’ve seen social media manipulation from Facebook. Can I prove it? No. Like most of you I’ve got better things to do than record every instance of facebook being petty that I’ve seen. I’ve heard of many people tell me they’ve paid for advertising only to have their ads shown in 3rd world nations to audiences that would never have a chance of being able to purchase their wares. Personally I’ve seen my counts on post views go down to the point where my posts are being seen less than the amount of shares they are getting. I’ve seen groups with 15k followers struggle to get more than a couple of likes per posts even though the group target is rather niche and pretty much anyone joining the group would be interested in the posts.
WHY DOES FACEBOOK DO THIS?
Why does facebook feel the need to do this? Does Zuckerberg really even care about Trump v Clinton or what the average folk think of the corona virus? Is it just to force us into paying for advertising? Why does one side of an arguement get precedence over another side of an arguement? What does Facebook have to gain my manipulating media? More Importantly what if they’re wrong on the stances they take?
OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO FACEBOOK
I’ve been on the hunt for other networks to start using that don’t manipulate your posts so that nobody sees them if you don’t advertise. One such network I’ve seen is MeWe. I’ve been using that for a few months and although my like page on there only has one 10th of the people the equivalent page has on facebook its getting more likes and views on each individual post.
