I hardly ever use Facebook. One time, after many months, I logged in and posted something about the Shroud of Turin, and posted evidence that it was authentic. I received warnings of inappropriate content and violating standards. I was "blocked" from sending messages for a bit. There was no detail about it but since I have logged in so infrequently, I related it to what I posted.

Now, I see that there are other incidences of censorship by Facebook, by finding this website: www.facebookcensorship.com

Facebook says page calling for death to Jews doesn't violate 'community standards'

A Facebook page calling for the death of Israeli Jews does not violate the social network's "community standards," according to multiple messages sent by Facebook in response to user complaints.
The page in question, is named, "Death to zionst baby killer israeli jews." The page, which spells "Zionist" incorrectly, features an Image of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a vampire with blood dripping down his chin as he feasts on a child. It was started on July 25.
Individuals complaining about the page were greeted with the following message (screen captured below):
We reviewed your report of Death to zionst baby killer israeli jews. Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the Page you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards.
Last Thursday, a mob of more than a dozen men assaulted a Jew in his suburban Paris home who had been identified through a French Facebook page that listed the faces and identities of Jews to be attacked. The social network declined to remove the page until after the assault had taken place.

Perhaps it should be renamed "Racebook" :) Hard to believe that Mark Zuckerberg would be OK with this. Presumably he doesn't know about it.

John, after reading that I am getting the chills. No one really know the
power Facebook has by its ubiquitousness.

It does not seem to have common standards.

Thanks for posting.
