Not seeing info from the people you selected to SEE FIRST? No engagement on your page? Facebook is manipulating your newsfeed! This info will make your blood boil.

from contributing writer Gina McAndrew

Facebook is a caring multinational company that believes the customer is always right.

BEEP. Wrong. Try again.

Facebook protects its users from unwanted or unsolicited posts with hidden agendas.

BEEP. Wrong again. One more time.

Facebook has a hidden agenda, and the groups and people Facebook doesn’t want voicing their opinion, need to be stopped, blocked and banned.

Yep. That’s about right.

You see, in this moment of history, the status quo has changed. It is no longer “acceptable” to have an opinion, especially one based on fact. Instead, social media is here to save us from our opinions, as they can be highly offensive. And one of the biggest contenders of this new social police culture? That’s right. Facebook.

Hollywood has declared war on our kids!

Think you aren’t affected by media influence? Guess again. Your kids are on the frontlines of a battle that continues to rage and fester through social media, movies, books, and music. Know your enemy so that you and your children will be “in the world, not of the world!”

Carl Kerby, President and Founder of Reasons for Hope*, Inc. and former Founding Director at Answers in Genesis, asks the question in his book, Remote Control: the Power of Hollywood on Today’s Culture, “Do you know we have 400,000 churches and 6,000 theaters in our country? Now which one do you think impacts our country more?” Unfortunately, our churches are not the major influencers. Kerby further explains, “Hollywood would not spend billions of dollars to not try to indoctrinate you…Their goal is to get you to think like the world, and their tactics can be subtle.”

But when it gets out of hand, things don’t go well. Studies have linked excessive screen time to anxiety, distractiveness, fatigue, stress, and even depression.
