It’s bad enough that the government censors and manipulates social media.

But RedditFacebook, Digg, Youtube and other social media sites have long censored content as well.

For example, Facebook pays low-wage foreign workers to delete certain content based upon a censorship list. For example, Facebook deletes accounts created by any Palestinian resistance groups.

Digg was caught censoring stories which were controversial or too critical of the government. See thisand this.

Many accuse Youtube of blatant censorship.

And today, two front-page stories on Reddit show:

(1) Reddit censors

and

(2) Redditors are furious about it

(Reddit is an immensely popular website, especially among young men.  6% of all adults – and 15% of all males aged 18-29 – read Reddit.)

One front-page Reddit story today – with more than 8,000 upvotes at last count- reported:

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t

The Russian news site RT.com has been banned from the popular Reddit forum r/news for spamming and vote manipulation.

The top comments to the story are slamming Reddit over censorship:

The second front-page Reddit story says:

RT.com partially banned by Reddit – RT Answers Back.

Here’s the top comment to that story:

And see this.

One of the top, longest-serving moderators told me privately that he disagrees with the harsh stance of some moderators. I’m a long-time Redditor, and am good friends with other old-timers. We are all disgusted by the censorship.
