For those of us being tired of censorship, there is a mass exodus occurring from Facebook into Parler.com. No sense in being silenced. Get your new profile there, unrestricted.

Not really a political thread. Just free advertising for yet another social media platform.
I’d suggest taking the “political” out of the title so it doesn’t get misclassified and eventually taken down.

I have never been on any social media like Facebook ? I don't think someone needs to know I'm in the restroom or so thrives know when I'm not home.

Great point. I never post when I’m somewhere cool until I’m back home. (Hey everyone especially thieves, I’m 1500 miles from home).

I figured leaving Facebook for political reasons, so that’s why I classified that. If they want to delete this over that then we need a different FordTremor forum to be a part of. This rather innocuous post ought not to be taken down. It is off-topic as the thread suggests.

Exactly why I’m leaving Facebook actually. Censorship for no reason.

Hannity appears to be in there already I think that is the verified symbol by his pic that signifies it’s really him

I've never had an Instagram or Twitter account. I had a Facebook account but deleted it years ago. I will give Parler a shot.

I said that parler kind of sucks. I was using the browser version on my iPhone not the mobile app. The mobile app is pretty good actually.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this forum, the people on it and running it just made it clear there won’t be any political posts or threads.

IMO facebook/Twitter are pointless anyway.

I don’t want to leave the forum by any stretch. I don’t want to encourage anyone to leave. I just think the off topic thread has a political bend to it in a sense is all. Why would anyone want to jump social media platforms for any reason than political. However BOTH sides can get on board with free speech making it less political and more American.

Honestly, instagram still has a 70% personal use to it rather than political/celebrities. I like instagram, but i purely use it to archive photos and stay connected to some loved ones. I don't at all follow any bullshit from anyone on there that I do not know personally.
Facebook on the other hand. Well... Facebook is dead. Was dead for a while. It's just a pointless relict from the early 2000s tech boom. It serves neither social nor political purpose at this point.

I belong to a forum for Shelby's, CVO Harley-Davidson's and this form. I like all three. I join these forums to see what other folks are doing to their stuff or cool things they found. I also like helping others out to show them products. It is also a great place to hear about problems others might be having.
I enjoy the photos and where they have been and seen.
To me this is about as close ill ever get to social media.
I'm 54 years old and as for what happened last night I have never been scared for my future and my country. I have always been in the past one that rolls with the flow. But this really has me worried and some what depressed with anxiety. I think about how I am going to deal with what is to come in the future, not only for me but everyone else in the world.

Sorry if I come across as a cry ass but this is reality for a lot of us.

I agree 100%. I know I come on this forum as a way to kinda escape from politics for a little? If that makes sense.

side note get ready for socialism/civil war part II
