It’s bad enough that the government censors and manipulates social media.
But Reddit , Facebook, 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.
Many accuse Youtube of blatant censorship .
And today, two front-page stories on Reddit show:
(1) Reddit censors
(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 :
The top comments to the story are slamming Reddit over censorship:
The second front-page Reddit story says :
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.
