Sep 27 - National boycott of Facebook & Instagram scheduled for Nov. 10

Social justice and civil rights groups are urging consumers to join a nationwide boycott starting Nov. 10 to protest what they say is the social media giant’s failure to address the destructive role it plays in American life, from the deadly COVID pandemic to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Kairos, which is organizing the boycott, is calling it The Facebook Logout, the technology-focused racial justice group exclusively told USA TODAY.

“People make this platform powerful, and without users, there is no Facebook,” Mariana Ruiz Firmat, executive director of Kairos, said in an interview.

The boycott's website says: "We're really over Facebook. So we're logging out." It encourages other users to take the pledge.

"From allowing white supremacists to plan a violent insurrection to ignoring disinformation for profit, Facebook is doing their worst," it reads. "So we’re doing the thing that will get Facebook’s attention: logging out."

One of the boycott's demands: The removal of Mark Zuckerberg as CEO.

The consumer boycott comes as the drumbeat of criticism and rumblings of other boycotts intensify.

Facebook is on the defensive after the publication of a five-part Wall Street Journal investigation that used leaked internal documents to show the company knew about the harms it causes, including to the mental health of teenage girls on Instagram.

Nick Clegg, Facebook's vice president for global affairs, condemned the Journal investigation, dismissing charges that Facebook executives repeatedly ignored warnings about the harmful effects of its products and policies.

“These stories have contained deliberate mischaracterizations of what we are trying to do,” Clegg wrote in a blog post. He did not say what the mischaracterizations were

“The public is tired of providing 98% of Facebook’s revenue through ads, yet having no say in the governance of the platform,” she said. “People are desperate for collective action and The Facebook Logout provides a way for people to use their power to demand change.”

Other demands includean overhaul of content moderation policies, data policies that protect users’ privacy and a strategy to combat disinformation “that does not prioritize Facebook’s bottom line.”

“These are just the tip of the iceberg, the beginning of a long-term f*ght to ensure that all platforms are a safe place for our communities to gather and organize,” Firmat said.

No. Either give up social media platforms or don't. Only way for the message to get through is to completely deactivate.

Instead of boycotting they should begin conversation with these so call led influencers


To make them advocate against the effects of what these influencers also contribute to the environment of these sites


Oh wait

Guess a previous poster stated the obvious


Attention wh*res need this

By all means politicians cap on peoples ignorance.. not sure what’s worse here
