(ANTIMEDIA) No good things last, it is said, and Facebook’s days as a medium for spreading information have come and gone.
The social network has faced a firestorm of criticism over numerous privacy violations and supposed negligence to Russia’s electioneering of America’s last presidential election, but one thing the tech giant is praised for in the media is silencing and deplatforming views deemed “dangerous” or outside of the scope of acceptable debate.
Anti-Media saw first-hand the effects of Facebook’s heavy-handed censorship when our media outlet was removed without warning on the morning of October 11th, 2018, along with 800 other content creators. Our 6-year-old project that started as a meme page and blossomed into an influential anti-establishment media outlet was suddenly deplatformed over the incredibly arcane reason of “coordinated inauthentic behaviour.”
That’s why Anti-Media has joined Minds and we hope you will too. Minds.com is an open-source, encrypted, privacy-centric, blockchain-powered social media outlet that values free speech and doesn’t censor its users. Over the coming weeks we’ll be talking more about why we’re divesting from Facebook and spending our time on Minds.com instead. You can sign up and follow Anti-Media on Minds by clicking here.
Since you’re here…
…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
