Facebook has exposed its users to lies, hate and disinformation. It has violated users' privacy rights and acted as a superspreader of misinformation and disinformation. It has censored activists and joined hands with authoritarian repression. But instead of protecting its users and vulnerable communities, Facebook has a long history of prioritizing its own profits and the business model they depend on.
The Facebook Users Union recognizes that the ultimate way to achieve change at Facebook is through organized user power. Facebook relies on its users to make a profit, and we will no longer accept the harm, lies, hate, disinformation and targeting of our communities that Facebook has enabled. We are joining together to protect ourselves from a platform we use every day to stay connected and informed.We support the following changes to Facebook's policies and will act to urge the company's leadership to adopt them:
By joining together as users, we can hold Facebook accountable and make impactful changes that protect vulnerable communities -- and all of us --from harm.
Join the Facebook Users Union today and call on the company to stop the spread of hate and lies!
