They shut me down due to conservative views. Never used bad language or any comments to go against their rules. I believe it was because of my not agreeing with liberal social media. I don't intend to even try to get back on the website.

I do not have a Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or other Big Tech social media account, so shutting down such an account is a moot issue for me.

I have never had any social media accounts and to be honest I am very thankful I don't. I am so thankful that I don't have to see the division and craziness that is going on. It is scary when a corporation can have that much power.

I plan to continue to continue use these platforms against the liberal media as long as it is free. Why would i not use their own media against them. When they shut me down is when i will stop using them.

I currently have Facebook and Twitter accounts, which since the election, I do not use much anymore. I was going to shut them down, but since Parlor lost its web service and Gab has been removed from the Apple App store, there is no other way to use social media. I have had many posts censored leading up to the election, and the main people I followed on Twitter have been removed, so what's the point of Twitter anymore? Our family is transitioning off Amazon. We are quitting Amazon Prime, subscription services, video, etc., and using Walmart, target, or others instead. We need to vote with our dollars!

All Republican Women should cancel all the social media platforms that have taken away the First Amendment rights of President Trump and his supporters. They should also delete the Fox News app as they are now in line with CNN and MSNBC.

Stop using Amazon for purchases and all services that they provide. We should all be willing to be inconvenienced to stand for Liberty in America. We now see Communist forces in control of information and corporate business policy in America. We cannot support their continued financial success. Every use of these companies means advertising dollars to them in the billions of dollars.

I use Rumble now instead of YouTube. Never was on Twitter, but I have a Parler account (until they were shut down). I’m on Facebook in order to post conservative articles and views, but I’ve joined other sites like CloutHub and MeWe. I’m busy subscribing to additional conservative podcasts and signing up for their emails/newsletters in case they are deplatformed further.

We have already shut them down. I have also cancelled my Amazon account and credit card and Wal-Mart account and credit card after they pulled support for all Congresspeople who Constitutionally challenged electors. We can cancel in our own way. We will not be silenced!

All good posts here. I honestly feel lost. I’m not big on social media, and do totally agree to hit Facebook, but the comments to use it in support of OUR values is valid. I’m hoping that President Trump can get a platform set up so we can have a fair venue. I feel blessed to live in this country, and to be a part of this team!

How about cancelling the Washington Post, the New York Times etc.? I, too, do not use social media and do not miss it. The Washington Post has had a constant hatred of the President over 4 years. I have never seen such journalism(?) in my life.

The only social media account I've ever had is Twitter. I plan to keep the account so that I'm able to counter some of the leftist lunacy. Whenever I come across a particularly eggregious comment, I counter with the facts. If no one challenges what the left says, the leftist viewpoint becomes entrenched even further. I feel it's more important to stand my ground and fight, than to run away.

I only have a facebook account. I am toying with shutting it down. I only share posts that I receive, those that have a moral or uplifting value.

I encourage us all to find, use and support alternate means of communication that protect our free speech rights.

Although I don't agree with the policy, it's the only way I communicate with many of my long distance friends land family, but I never post anything political.

I am definitely cutting back. I will be looking for an alternative in the future. Facebook will not let my husband post or comment until after January 20th and did not give a reason.

Like many of my sisters I didn't have these accounts except for facebook which i looked at only sporadically as I could never remember my password. If you visit Michele Tutoli, you'll see pix of me at various RWF meetings and my meeting with Justice Thomas when I was admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court.

I read today that Parlor will be back in a few days. I may try that. Hubby is shutting down his FB account and will stop buying through Amazon

Yes, I deleted my Facebook and Twitter account. I no longer use Google as my Web browser (I use DuckDuckGo). I was using Parler until they were censored by big Tech. I get my news from Epoch Times, OANN and sometimes NewsMax(I am not sure about the integrity of Newsmax).

Also, I stopped ordering from Amazon and am determined to shop local.

"No longer lend your voice to that which you wish to be free from" Jewell says in her song.

I will not lend my support to Facebook, Twitter, youtube, google (I use Firefox). I will not buy on Amazon.

I check facebook most every morning to stay connected with friends, relatives, and classmate friends. We share information and our opinions on facebook, and messenger. One friend started a facebook group for his conservative friends, and warned that anyone who bad mouths our platform will be kicked off. I'm hoping that there will be legislation soon that will stop the censorship and shutting down people's accounts, and facebook jail proving that the 1st Amendment means what it says.

Shut down facebook and twitter a number of weeks ago when they began to suppress information on Hunter Biden before the election. Have cancelled Amazon Prime, and now only use duckduckgo for internet searches. Waiting for Parler to come back on but am now also on Telegram and Gab.

Before social media took over our lives, people found efficient ways to communicate. I think we can do that again. I think that facebook, twitter, etc will become irrelevant soon. Those of us living in rural areas used to shop by mail directly through the merchants. No need for Amazon to control everything. It is all for convenience. Schools will be the challenge but there are plenty of creative smart people is education to solve the communication issues. Reading some of the comments, new avenues are starting to open.

I would like to leave facebook but won't for the following reasons:

Most of my family and friends communicate via facebook,

Our local county public meetings are only accessible through facebook.

It gives me a chance to express my view points and educate others on facts and misconceptions.

I shut my Facebook personal and business page and Instagram page down after the election. It was really difficult but I felt so strongly about the loss of freedom of speech that I couldn't keep them active. I hope that more people are strong enough to do this so there will be more people that go to the alternative social media sites. I'm also trying to buy more from Ebay instead of Amazon. I do still use Amazon to look at reviews but try not to buy from them. I wish conservatives would band together more to boycott these big companies. The liberals have been doing this and have made such a stink that companies like Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond are dropping companies like "My Pillow" , owned by Mike Lindell, because of his conservative political views. We have to be more unified to make any sort of difference.
