CrossFit quits Facebook, Instagram, accuses social media giant of censorship, being ‘utopian socialists’

The company provided eight “publicly sourced complaints” as the reasons for quitting.

“Facebook collects and aggregates user information and shares it with state and federal authorities, as well as security organizations from other countries,” the first reason read.

“Facebook collaborates with government security agencies on massive citizen surveillance programs such as PRISM,” CrossFit said in the second reason.

“Facebook collects, aggregates, and sells user information as a matter of business. Its business model allows governments and businesses alike to use its algorithmically conjured advertising categories as sophisticated data-mining and surveillance tools.”

“Facebook’s news feeds are censored and crafted to reflect the political leanings of Facebook’s utopian socialists while remaining vulnerable to misinformation campaigns designed to stir up violence and prejudice.”
