Study: High social media usage may cause mental health issues for teens?

According to a study conducted by Cambridge University’s Digital Mental Health program, social media may be causing mental issues in teens, particularly as they enter puberty. The study, reported by The Verge, noted that it came to this conclusion from studying the results of seven surveys of 72,000 individuals between 2011 and 2018 and a survey of 17,000 between the ages of 10 to 21. The study found that higher social media usage resulted in teens having ‘low’ self-esteem and ‘poor’ body image, which showed up when they entered puberty, and also at the time they were ready to leave home. The Verge reports: “Narrowing in on adolescents, the team found that for people in the 16- to 21-year-old age range, both very low and very high social media use were both linked with lower life satisfaction. In 10- to 15-year-olds, there wasn’tmuch difference in life satisfaction between kids reporting low and high social media use. But in that group, girls with high social media use had lower life satisfaction than boys.” READ: Social media …

Facebook sees its number of logins decline for the first time in history

For the first time in its storied history, Facebook has seen its number of users decline. Facebook opened its doors on Oct 28, 2003 under the name of FaceMask. It would change its name to TheFacebook in Feb 2004. The Dailymail reports that Facebook, which typically has 1.93 billion people logging in daily, saw its number of logins shrink by nearly 500,000 daily during the last three months of 2021. This combined with lower ad revenues because of Tik Tok has resulted in a 22.6% decline in the stock price of Facebook’s parent company, Meta, a $200 billion reduction in the company’s value. READ: Facebook loses users for the first time EVER: Shares plummet 20%, wiping $200BN off value of parent-firm Meta after it revealed 500,000 fewer daily log-ins and declining profits – Zuckerberg’s personal wealth takes $29BN hit Of course, Facebook has gone woke and continues to censor and ban any groups it personally doesn’t agree with. Apparently, its administrators haven’t figured out if they continue doing this, people will go elsewhere. READ: US …

Facebook just censored one of opentheWord’s articles

I call it a badge of honour, but someone just told me that Facebook censored one of my articles, as it was completely yanked from the social media site. They forwarded me the warning I received. Apparently, the article was yanked because it was partially false: Now, we need a bit of context here. The global warming elitists are gathering in Glasgow, Scotland for a big man-made warming shin ding where they will warn us, as they have done for nearly 20 years, that we only have ten years to save the planet. As the elitists fly in on their private jets, they will also be insisting the peasants of the world should no longer be allowed to drive our cars. So, of course, Facebook’s censors on heightened alert for any news that would contradict the global warming propaganda. Apparently, my article on how Australia’s Great Barrier, that was allegedly obliterated by man-made global warming, is now growing back was partially false. You can read the censored article here: READ: As global warming fearmongering grows, …

YouTube fined for censoring anti-lockdown protest video

According to a report by Reclaim the Net, a German court has just fined YouTube 100,000 Euros (Approximately US$118,000) for taking down a video of people protesting against the COVID lockdowns in neighbouring Switzerland. When YouTube took down the video back in April 2020, the Dresden court ordered YouTube to immediately restore the video, but YouTube ignored the court’s ruling for nearly a month before finally restoring it on May 14, 2020. Ruling that YouTube’s behaviour was “deliberate and serious violation,” the court fined the social media behemoth. YouTube argued that its “medical misinformation policy” was above the laws of Germany. The court disagreed. READ: YouTube fined 100,000 Euro after German court rejects its “misinformation” excuse for deleting anti-lockdown protest video The manager of the channel censored by YouTube tweeted several responses to the recent court ruling: English translation: “Joachim Steinhöfel: ‘With the historically high fine, the Higher Regional Court makes it very clear that court decisions must be observed without restriction, regardless of whether YouTube assumes a violation of its guidelines or not.’” Rough …

Florida’s plan to fight back against Big Tech censorship

In a recent speech, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis revealed several measures that he will be implementing to protect the citizens of Florida from Big Tech censorship. People are starting to fight back against the rogue actions of Social media giants that are censoring free speech and targeting conservative and religious voices. Breitbart explains: In a 45-minute speech, the governor identified Big Tech companies as the leading threat to American democracy and freedom of expression today, and pledged that Florida Republicans would take action. The new regulations announced by DeSantis include: * Mandatory opt-outs from big tech’s content filters, a solution to tech censorship first proposed by Breitbart News in 2018.* A private right of action for Floridian citizens against tech companies that violate this condition.* Fines of $100,000 per day levied on tech companies that suspend candidates for elected office in Florida from their platforms.* Daily fines for any tech company “that uses their content and user-related algorithms to suppress or prioritize the access of any content related to a political candidate or cause on the …

Twitter CEO secretly caught planning to ramp up censorship

We have all heard the theory that if you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won’t jump out because it is cold-blooded, and will allow itself to boil to death. Well, apparently Twitter CEO and billionaire Jack Dorsey is planning a similar strategy on Twitter. Dorsey was secretly caught on tape stating that the ban on US President Donald Trump was just the first step in censorship of conservatives. But he plans to do it slowly, hoping we won’t notice.

Speaking of a “New World Order’

I have seen a few articles recently on the ‘great reset,’ where people are suggesting that political forces are at work trying to take advantage of the COVID pandemic to change the world as we know it. I am not big into conspiracies, but I gave my head a shake when I read an article on how Facebook censored a video post by Mexican Cardinal, Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, that was discussing the threat of a new world order. Maybe it is just me, but doesn’t censoring a Facebook post on a new world order, kind of smacks of a new world order, intentional or not? Breitbart explains: Facebook has censored a video of Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, for suggesting that globalist leaders are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to bring about a new world order.In place of the cardinal’s weekly video, Facebook exhibited a greyed-out screenshot emblazoned with the banner “False information.” Underneath, Facebook added, “This publication repeats information about COVID-19 that independent fact checkers deemed false.”On its Facebook page, Semanario Arquidiocesano …

Concerning news out of Australia has many warning again, that Big Tech’s powers must be reined in. A recent report alleges that Google, easily the largest search engine on the internet, was experimenting with ways to block access to news sites in that country. It was responding to the Australian government that is considering having Big Tech companies such as Google and Facebook pay for links to local news sources.

Irony: Twitter’s hypocrisy exposed

Twitter is condemning Uganda’s recent decision to block social media from its internet leading up to its national election. This means that Ugandans will not have access to their social media accounts. The government made the decision stating that the social media giants have “taken sides.” With Twitter opposing the move by stating it supports “OpenInternet,” many took the moment to point out the number of times Twitter has banned or blocked Conservatives that it didn’t agree with.
