Your Facebook 'Big Brother' Would Now Like to Know if You'll Snitch on Any 'Far-Right' Extremists
CBN - The social media giant Facebook has now gone beyond "fact-checking." They want you to be their spy and let them know with whom you disagree while using their platform.
RedState.com reports Facebook is now flagging some user's accounts with the following message:
"Are you concerned that someone you know is becoming an extremist? We care about preventing extremism on Facebook. Others in your situation have received confidential support."
The social media giant also includes a button marked, "How you can help. Hear stories and get advice from people who escaped violent extremist groups."
The button is a link to the "support group" called Life After Hate. The site's About page reveals what hateful ideology the group is fighting.
"Our Mission - Life After Hate is committed to helping people leave the violent far-right to connect humanity and lead compassionate lives," the website reads.
"Our Programs - Our primary goal is to interrupt violence committed in the name of ideological or religious beliefs. We do this through education, interventions, academic research, and outreach," the website continues.
The Christian Broadcasting Network is an American conservative evangelical Christian religious television network and production company. Founded by televangelist Pat Robertson, its headquarters and main studios are based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States.
