This is Why It is Such a Joke to Shut Down Parler

Well, “joke” is probably the wrong word, since it’s not funny at all.

Sheryl Sandberg downplayed Facebook's blame for Capitol riot, but evidence points to role - The Washington Post

Parler doesn’t even have groups, which really facilitate organizing things. You know who has groups? Facebook.

A growing body of evidence shows Facebook played a much larger role than Sandberg suggested.

The #StopTheSteal hashtag was widely used on the service until Monday, when a search on Facebook reported that 128,000 people were talking about it and in many cases using it to coordinate for the rally, according to Eric Feinberg, a vice president with the Coalition for a Safer Web.

Parler did nothing wrong.
