@davebritton Tell them they can use Facebook all they want to get people on the Fediverse! In all seriousness, they should have a presence on some libre network. Using Facebook doesn't stop you from doing that as well. IMO any organization who can't even spare the time to set up an accessible alternate contact method is *at best* a false flag operation established to divert people away from effective activism.
@cy @davebritton Facebook and Twitter are where the numbers are, but activism is not always about numbers. On those sites, you can think you are broadcasting to the billions, but the alorithm may be hiding your posts even from followers. As a rule of thumb, if your posts are not profitable for advertisers then the algorithm will downrank them. And if you pause to consider it, a lot of the activism which people like us are involved with is the opposite of generating money for advertisers.
@bob Well, I suppose we could develop a site for activists to post real-time pix/video during street demonstrations to a site that had lots of google ads to make money for local bail funds, with bot postings to fbood and birdsite to drive traffic to it. People could support the rioters by watching the riots.
