Instagram removed a Portland cartoonist’s post concerning Antifa “milkshakes” after right-wing trolls

A Portland cartoonist in brief saw his art disappear from Instagram for “promoting violence and dangerous organizations” after right-wing trolls reported a political cartoon that juxtaposed a mass shooter motivated by white supremacy with a disguised antifascist throwing a milkshake.

After Rolling Stone 1st rumored on the apparent censorship, Instagram restored the post, saying it had been taken down in error.
Cartoonist Matt Bors, who edits a magazine for political cartoons known as The Nib, told Rolling Stone he was frustrated with the how media organizations cover white nationalist and white supremacist violence, and the way they cover relatively small actions by antifascists, or antifa.

“Antifa dumps a milkshake on some incel chud and we hear concerning how fascism is taking over the country from the left,” he said, “while multiple terrorist attacks and pogroms impressed by the president go mostly unperceived upon by major media outlets.”
When are we going to begin calling these attacks* what they are?
The post came following weeks of calls to designate antifa as a domestic terrorist organization after some disguised protesters threw milkshakes and punches at a June 29 rally in Portland. (Right-wing anger over the June 29 assault of a conservative videographer has led to an imminent confrontation on the Portland waterfront August. 17, as far-right groups demand the criminalization of antifa.)

Why head to the mall when you can check out Instagram?

Instagram has become an endless shopping experience, nearly like a mall. It allows you to wander, browse, even have some fun—but everything is intended to make you pay more money without any obstacles.

Some of this transformation has been obvious, a results of concrete steps by the app, and some has been a gradual, somewhat surreptitious, process.
The Information reported August. 22 that once Facebook started cracking the whip on Instagram last year to push the app to bring in even more profit, it ordered the photo-sharing app to double the quantity of ads on the platform.

Scrolling through my Instagram feed last week, I found that for every 3 regular posts, one was an advert. On Stories, it varied, with ads typically showing up between every two, three, or four Stories. As of this year, there also are currently ads within the Explore tab, where users discover posts from accounts they don’t follow.

Where to buy Instagram followers

Instagram is set up to be a community. This suggests that if somebody engages with a post you publish or account, you’ll reciprocate that engagement and your account can grow, right?

If only it were that straightforward. Whereas having an Instagram account is free of charge, this doesn’t mean that everything else is. Whereas Instagram doesn’t charge for any extra features, you’d be wrong in thinking that you simply can build your page up just by corporal punishment your own engagement.

Maybe all those years ago when Instagram was initially turning into popular platform, you could. Now, however, it takes more than small amount of engagement to float to the highest.

Mark Zuckerberg is proposing a kind of court system

As Facebook explores a way to establish more independent oversight for the corporate, chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg is proposing a kind of court system where appeals will be elevated if people disagree on how controversial content is treated.

Facebook released a brand new research report on Thursday summarizing its findings based on input from over 2,000 people in 88 countries. In January, the corporate solicited public and expert feedback on a way to create a separate body that can impose binding decisions independent of its executives’ opinions.

The company has come under attack for its inconsistency in the means it handles content that’s violent, viewed as offensive or just patently false. The problem came up at Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting last month, as investors demanded to understand how Zuckerberg, who has majority voting management over Facebook’s shares, determines what speech is allowed on the site.

Facebook is making Instagram and WhatsApp employees get email addresses because it tries to unify its whole.

Facebook is making Instagram and WhatsApp workers adopt Facebook-themed email addresses because the social network tries to integrate its family of apps ever-more closely together.

In an interview with Business insider at the Cannes Lions festival in France this week, Facebook’s global chief marketing officer Antonio Lucio said the corporate is trying to further unify its services. Facebook desires to make its ownership of the other apps much more clearly to users, he said — and the email change is a component of efforts to strengthen the core corporate brand.

The social network plans to make employees of its non-core services — photo-sharing platform Instagram, messaging app WhatsApp, and virtual reality firm oculus — transition to a email addresses, ditching the service-specific email addresses they have traditionally used (,, or

For years, Facebook has been content to keep its numerous apps at arm’s length, operating as independent team with significant autonomy ( and even separate bathrooms). However more recently, the $535 billion company is making an attempt to exert more centralized management, sometimes provoking tensions and concerns among employees. This move to scrap separate emails provides fresh insight into how Facebook is trying to drive internal unity among its disparate teams, alongside its efforts to make its public-facing services more cohesive.
