Trend Storm: ‘Why Facebook Betrayed Its User Base and What’s Next’

Trend Storm host Andrew Korybko writes: “From being indirectly implicated in the Russiagate conspiracy for supposedly allowing fake news to be peddled on its platform to being exposed earlier this year for allowing Cambridge Analytica to harvest its users’ data for political purposes, it’s fair to say that Facebook has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons over the past couple of years. On top of that, some politically active users who defy Mainstream Media dogma have alleged that they’re being “shadow blocked”, meaning that the algorithm is suppressing their account’s so-called “organic reach”, or sometimes outright censored through frivolous blocking.”

For burgeoning technocrats, it seems that the Establishment’s contrived ‘fake news crisis‘ is the gift that just keeps on giving. As Facebook moves into its latest Orwellian phase of political censorship, critics are beginning to ask what will become of the Silicon Valley’s most famous digital monopoly. Has Facebook sold out its user base? Will intelligent and influential content producers and consumers now begin migrating in greater numbers to more Constitutional or free speech-friendly social media platforms? Sputnik Radio’s cutting edge program Trend Storm explores this question with special guests, 21WIRE’s Patrick Henningsen and Joaquin Flores, Editor-in-Chief of Fort Russ News.
