An Increasing Issue is Big Tech’s Hold on Social Media.

Facebook, Instagram, Threads, and WhatsApp are all owned by a single trillion-dollar corporation. As demonstrated by a recent Big  censorship fight with Meta, this concentration of digital ownership can have adverse effects in the real world.

Following the publication of a study by an independent journalist and a nonprofit newspaper criticizing Facebook and charging it with stifling posts about climate change, Meta issued an apology last week. Meta blamed an unidentified “security issue” and denied that it was restricting any information.

On Thursday, all 6,000 stories, or every link the Kansas Reflector has ever shared on Facebook, vanished from the social media site. A warning about the site’s potential security risk was displayed to anyone attempting to publish a Reflector link for seven hours.

As Kabas shared her link to the column on Threads, Meta promptly removed it due to concerns over its potentially harmful nature. Then, according to Kabas, Meta erased everything her website had ever posted on its platforms, a block lasting at least two hours.

When CNN asked Meta for more details regarding the security concern, Meta didn’t reply. Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone “wouldn’t elaborate on how the mistake happened and said there would be no further explanation,” according to a letter written on Friday by Sherman Smith, the chief editor of the Kansas Reflector.
