Was asked to pass this along to our readers and fans. Having been on the receiving end of FB’s very vague and arbitrary policies and TOS, maybe updating them to catch up with modern times wouldn’t be such a bad thing.
· We are for the betterment of society. We guard against the violation of liberties and freedoms afforded every person in the global community. We guard against censorship of adult activities. We guard against the censorship of art. Therefore, we desire to successfully petition Facebook to help us in this endeavor by changing their Terms of Service.
Art, Alternative Lifestyles, Mature Humor, Dark Matter, Mature Matter, Free Speech
Art, Alternative Lifestyles, Mature Humor, Dark Matter, Mature Matter, and Free Speech have been debatable topics for generations. Social networking will remain to be a platform for debates. We ask Facebook to recognize it is a media platform entity with the same duty and responsibility to the community that the journalism media platform owns. The Associated Press Managing Editors Ethics Code, under Integrity, states: “The newspaper should strive for impartial treatment of issues and dispassionate handling of controversial subjects. It should provide a forum for the exchange of comment and criticism,… (Code of Ethics. Integrity. Paragraph 1)”. It is important that Facebook, as a media platform, maintain a separation so as to not become a tool of a select few against many.
We believe this perspective will be profitable to Facebook, and will provide a better community service.
