If social media is a free website for opinions and to do whatever, they should allow those comments.
@Click To Login, Did you just advocate for the freedom of speech?! That's goes against my opinions, you Nazi!
@Good Guy Satan, How dare you disagree with my opinion! Im never wrong and that that you... Bad guy!
@Click To Login, *watches and eats popcorn*
@a shiny haunter, you sick bastard, I identify as popcorn!
@Good Guy Satan, Don’t worry, I’ve already called the police, I’m sure they’ll take them straight to jail for that hate speech.
@Cloverleaf, dont worry, you're allowed to identify as it but this is the real thing
@a shiny haunter, *gets angry, heating up until popping*. YOU CALL THIS FAKE!?
@Cloverleaf, i wasnt gonna say anything but you do look delicious
@Good Guy Satan, Whoa whoa whoa. You can't talk bad about Nazi's anymore! What are you some communist?
@Click To Login, social media platforms are first and foremost businesses. They need to make whatever choices provide the best results for their shareholders. In this case, stopping hate speech and harassment is a good way to make people more comfortable using your site and give you good publicity, so they can make more money.
Assuming that these policies do increase the company's income, it doesn't make sense to let everybody post just anything.
@Click To Login, it’s a private business. They can technically say no you can’t just like a restaurant can refuse service for anything.
@Lord Palpatine, whats so wrong with communists huh? You got a PROBLEM??
@Click To Login, I love you guys...
This is the problem with socialising through a private company. In the end it’s their decision to allow or block certain things, and we need to stop seeing social media as a perfect socialisation platform, and more as an accessible platform that allows easy discussion of only certain things. Freedom of speech was designed for physical communication after all.
@YUNoJump, That is absolutely incorrect. The freedom of speach is for all types of communication. Online, physical, etc. Social media is a platform to discuss whatever, but its getting more limited to apply to all needs. It should support all opinons, even if they hurt other people's feelings.
@Click To Login, freedom of speech affects what happens in public, not between private parties or in private places. The right to own private property is just as big as freedom of speech, and a website is property. You’re allowed to kick someone out of your house for being racist, but you aren’t allowed to kick someone out of a public park for being racist. That’s freedom of speech, and as such website owners should be allowed to censor content on their platform.
@YUNoJump, I agree that social media SHOULD be open for everyone, but companies deserve to be allowed to protect their reputation against less mainstream opinions. If social media wasn’t privately owned then I wouldn’t support the right to censor, but they are so I do.
@Click To Login, actually, you’re incorrect. It’s not about freedom of speech between people, it’s about the government. So the American government cannot say “you cannot say that thing.“ However, a company can say “you cannot use our platform for that message.“
@Click To Login, there is freedom of speech so that for the most part you can say whatever you want without being arrested. That doesn't take away the rights of a company to limit what is said or done with their product. If you want to say something that a social media platform does not like you are perfectly free to create your own. I think I already saw someone give you the example of someone in your house. Freedom of speech allows someone to insult you and your entire family. You also have the right to not allow it in your house and kick them out or have them arrested for trespassing.
I have seen that post. It wasn't even a microwave. It was in a pan on the stove
