CrossFit Deletes Facebook and Instagram

For all the the talk of arbitrary, capricious, or ideologically motivated deplatforming of people, publications, and groups by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media platforms, there's been less discussion about high-profile individuals and companies deleting their accounts in response to what they see as unfair, unethical, or misguided behavior.

That might change now that CrossFit, the immensely popular exercise and nutrition enterprise, has announced that it is permanently pulling its Facebook and Instagram accounts. According to an official statement published yesterday.

GREAT news. It might be time for more companies to pull themselves off Facebook and Twitter.

Now if we just had protocols for many small independent sites to federate and replace them. Maybe the Mastodon protocol.

I just used FB a few times, mostly to promote Patrick.net
I really don't like social media, it's so fucking leftist. If they say anti Trump stuff it's fine, if you say anti Hillary stuff... you get a ban.
Very one sided stupidity.

I still use Google - Chrome is required by my employer. Never Facebook, tho. It's like having a high maintenance girlfriend. Whiny and takes up too much time.

CrossFit should delete itself.
