By Robin . . . Having already contacted Mark Zuckerberg by letter dated June 27, 2017, NARSOL has now released a nationwide press release hoping to bring additional pressure upon the social media giant to cease its nearly nine-year-old practice of barring registered citizens from creating or maintaining Facebook user accounts.
While it’s important to note that the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Packingham v. North Carolina does not have any controlling impact over Facebook’s corporate policies banning registered citizens, NARSOL believes that the Court’s rationale along with the reasoning behind the decision shine a light on the policy’s moral rectitude in the face of the social media company’s global communications operations — as well as its stated objective to “build community and bring the world closer together.”
NARSOL will monitor Facebook’s posture in response to the letter and the press release. You are encouraged to do your part in adding pressure to the mix. Contact Facebook. Ask questions about why they have adopted such a policy. Challenge them to live up to their corporate mantra and allow ALL Americans to utilize their social media forum for the reasons that make it a mainstay of daily activity in the lives of millions of people across the planet.
