We are back! The Prisma is back to Facebook!

Helps us to rebuild our audience

In September Last year The Prisma newspaper was totally banned from Facebook.  It meant we lost all the group, the profile, the page, followers, groups we have joined and the full eight years records!

 

This has been catastrophic for us, because we are an independent newspaper, run only by volunteers and without financial resources, plus we circulate for free. It means social media is key for us.

The banning didn’t surprise us as in the previous 2 years many times and often, Facebook restricted us from the use of different features and many of the posts (most of them with political content) were removed.

We complained to Facebook via web and email, several times, but we never had an answer.

On the contrary, on each occasion the response was worse, they banned our content until finally the day came when they disappeared us from Facebook totally.

Since then we tried unsuccessfully several times to be back on Facebook. Fortunately Facebook has now allowed us to open a page but it was only few days ago that we were able to start working on it.

We are aware that building an audience is a difficult task and it takes time. The Prisma can’t pay an expert, so we will do it ourselves, bit by bit. And specially we are asking all of you to help us by recommending our page, becoming followers, giving likes, interacting!

We will appreciate your solidarity very much!

    What is facebook afraid of?

    • We don’t really know! We are a small independent newspaper. We guess is that kind of random Facebook stuff and we got into their target

  2. As per the Cambridge Analytica (CA) scandal (2015-18) when Facebook (Zuckerberg and investors) SOLD profiles of m(b?)illions of users, without our permission or even our knowledge, to commercial entities, militaries and right-wing candidates’ campaigns (including Trump’s in 20016). Facebook either facilitated or allowed these groups to ‘harvest’ the data about individuals who seem vulnerable. Then, particular messages were aimed at those folks to influence their attitudes and then their behavior: You’re un or underemployed?- Blame immigrants. Violence in the neighborhood?- Blame black folk.
    Don’t bother to vote, or even better, vote right (Republican).

    And the Prisma was banned? Let’s find out who else has been kicked off. Do we quit Facebook or flood our pages with information about their abuse of stolen data?
    For me, Face…. is a massive distraction. Thank you ‘Democracy Now’, and indeed ‘Prisma’. I read, watch recommended documentaries and go to political discussions. I recommend Chris Wylie’s book ‘Mind F*ck’ about how he came to blow-the-whistle on the CA manipulationsand the documentary about Steve Bannon, ‘American Dharma’ Also watch for the upcoming ‘The Great Hack.’
