Facebook has been censoring users. It will temporarily block users. They have their own system that if they catch a certain "word, or phrase" that they deem as unfavourable, well they temporarily block you. If you are on line posting for a long time, well Facebook will temporarily block you again. If someone else on facebook doesn't like what you say in a post, they can get Facebook to block you. The whole system is outdated, unfair, and is censoring everyone's free speech.
I can understand if someone is using racial slurs, other awful stuff, sure block them for a day. Further, they send you notice that your temporarily blocked, but don't say if that is for a day, 48 hrs. If you try the following day to access apparently facebook will block you longer because of that. Censoring normal everday conversations people have on post or news sites is not in our constitution. Facebook is violatitng our freedom of expression.
Facebook should advise users how long they can post on a news site, or other social sites before just simply blocking them. I never use curse words, I engage in political debates on various news sources on facebook, and frequently for no apparent good reason to me and othrs, Facebook says "your temporarily blocked". no reason given, no time line on how long the block is on. This violates every user's rights in choosing to use Facebook's product.
