Facebook bans French town

Puritan US Social notworking site, Facebook has concluded that a famous French town has no right to exist and is an insult to good Christian folk and their children.
Ville de b**** is a town situated in northwestern France with a rich military history, pastoral landscape and Facebook insists it must change its name or having its page deleted.
It is not the first time that the French town has fallen foul of US censors. In 2019 the town had its page banned.
...
But Facebook is not only filling the local news void — it is tied to local papers' disappearance. "Social and digital media are a contributing factor in thinking about the declines of the presence of local newsrooms, as well as what that coverage looks like for the local newsrooms that remain", Scacco says.

Seems other town in the same region is also being affected:
"What has happened to the town of b**** demonstrates the insufficient and limited moderating tools that only the human gaze can appreciate," he said.

The mayor said the president of French Facebook had contacted him on Tuesday to tell him the page had been reinstated and to apologise for the inconvenience.

Mr Kieffer invited him, as well as Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, to visit b**** "to discover our pretty fortified town".

A Facebook spokesperson told the BBC on Tuesday: "The page was removed in error and was swiftly restored this morning, when we became aware of the issue."

Another town in the region, Rohrbach-lès-b****, renamed its page "Ville de Rohrbach" on Monday.

"Facebook seems to be hunting a term associated with Rohrbach… we'll let you imagine the reason," the town said in a post explaining the move.

New whatsapp strategy - nag people to let them share data with facebook, and hope they give up:

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/t ... a-sharing/
Users will keep receiving reminders to accept sharing their data with Facebook for the next several weeks, reminders that will ultimately become persistent.

"At that time, you’ll encounter limited functionality on WhatsApp until you accept the updates," the company added.

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp face Middle East Crisis

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are facing a reputational crisis after losing a battle against the Israeli government and their own moderation software.

Anytime someone claims that kicking groups off platforms like facebook will just push them onto other platforms:
TL;DR - they just switch to code words instead.
