Climate activist Greta Thunberg is setting her sights on Facebook, urging the social media giant to take responsibility and curb the hate speech, conspiracy theories and lack of fact-checking that she says is rampant on the platform.
In a Facebook post shared with her 2.6million followers, Thunberg, 16, wrote Wednesday that she was debating quitting the social media platform because she finds its ‘lack of taking responsibility very disturbing.’
“I am, like many others, questioning whether I should keep using Facebook or not…………… Allowing hate speech, the lack of fact checking and of course the issues of interfering with democracy…are among many, many other things that are very upsetting.….. The constant lies and conspiracy theories about me and countless of others of course result in hate, death threats and ultimately violence……..This could easily be stopped if Facebook wanted to. I find the lack of taking responsibility very disturbing…….. But I’m sure that if they are challenged and if enough of us demand change – then change will come.”Greta Thunberg
Yes, Greta….. There’s a big ol’ nasty world out there ready to kick your ass!
