Facebook is always finding new ways to make things worse. Now you can jump in the comments section and add approved agitprops to your feed.
Here’s how it looks:
The “fact” check is based on an estimate from a car dealership that showed that a ChevyVolt owner would need to pay almost $30,000 to purchase an electric vehicle battery. PolitiFact also posted their take on the story in comments two days later. PolitiFact stated the battery was for a 10-year-old vehicle with 70,000 miles. There was no warranty. General Motors discontinued the Volt in 2018. The battery is no longer made by them.
The “fact checker” found that the average cost of a new electric vehicle battery is $6,300. Prices can range from $6000 to $20,000.
This is another reason why electric vehicles are only for the wealthy. We have never owned more than $10,000 in cars. The majority of these cars cost less than $5,000.
Ayobami Olumami, from Meta’s Policy Communications division, told PJ Media via email that a “small group of US third-party fact-checking partners” can comment in English or Spanish on public Facebook posts that they believe could be more contextual. ”
Olugbemiga provided us with the most recent Community Standards Enforcement Report. This report describes the new program. The comments do not fact-check ratings. They won’t result in any enforcement sanctions against content owners.
Meta claims comments will appear in Facebook posts that aren’t verifiably false but people may find misleading. Does anyone use newspeak?
Facebook’s shadow warnings about content that they don’t like were not working. It’s human nature to click on Facebook warnings that it’s censoring a post. They’re using another tactic. They are leaving a warning in the user’s comments feed and prioritizing that warning.
They are impartial fact-checkers who work all night to block any conversations on Facebook that don’t match the approved Narrative.
We have been taught that comments on our posts belong to us. However, Facebook has received Section 230 protections from the federal government. This is because they don’t want comments to be held accountable for people making them.
Although I don’t know the exact reason, it appears that the warning was used to increase the visibility of the post on EV batteries. Many of these comments ridiculed the elitists, who think it’s no big deal that car batteries would cost an average American more than 10% of their annual salaries.
Andre, a commenter wrote, “It had been 10 years since the battery was retired. However, it is understandable that parts for a 2012 model are hard to find. This is the future. ”
Wayne wrote: “I’m still driving a 1965 Impala.”
Gene asked: “So one must buy a new 60,000-dollar vehicle every few years?” “We don’t all have the money to buy a new car every few years”. “But you are trying to make it easier for us”.
Garry wondered, “What will be the price five years from now on 2022?” We are wondering too, Garry.
Debbie said, “It is absurd. Debbie stated, “It’s absurd. Debbie, climate alarmists do not believe in reality. All they can say is that you will be charged.
David was spot on. We couldn’t agree with you more, David.
Susan responded with the same thought that we all share after reading this story: “Here’s a factoid. This car owner is screwed. ”
Meta claims that they will continue to allow post owners the freedom to “hide or delete comments from their posts if required.” But how long do they think this will last?
Have you been a victim of one of these “fact checker” comments? Let me know in the comments if you were able to remove it.
