Once again, the giant pariah of online digital communities supports the reduction of your basic constitutional rights. In this instance, it was not a subversive attack on the free flow of information in the news feed using automated bots and pointed algorithms, but rather the blatant denial of allowing a small business to advertise to its customer base.
And yes, this all about the clear anti-fire sentiment intertwined within the policy mill of the vast social network. Liberty Park Press reported in October on the latest developments and possible ramifications that newly adopted oniline community guidelines could have towards preventing gun clubs or firearms dealers in reaching potential clients or interacting with followers.
According to the Daily Caller, The Sportsman’s Shop based in Pennsylvania, is a now charter member in a series of organizations affected by the questionable and damaging corporate policy, as the small business was denied advertising capabilities for allegedly violating the house rules. Thanks to the specific programming of the automated ad submission process, since the company sells firearms on its website, the system threw up a big red oppressive flag, and promptly terminated the marketing privileges of the business. F*(#book does include a strict no tolerance policy on the mention of “weapons” or “aggression” in advertisements. However, here is the issue. The “controversial” marketing piece, which broke the proverbial back of the camel and put the business in the doghouse, included no mention of guns, ammunition, weapons, and announced a sale on the american flags. The ad was nixed, simply because of the digital echo from the business’s webpage. Employees at the company attempted to restore blocked advertising features and submitted a number of complaints to the grand social platform, but to no avail.
The moral of the story to businesses who rely on social network outreach in generating revenue, find another vehicle for online marketing or simply conform to the aggressive attempt of an unpatriotic entity in societal engineering in removing all electronic traces highlighting liberty and freedom. With the prevalence of ambiguous legal speak within advertising guidelines, there exists a high possibility that any advertisement can be pulled at anytime, and for no reason. CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his cronies can proudly display their muted and gloomy flag of gray and grayer, as the colors of red, white and blue dissolve into the digital abyss.
