facebook is a place where when you're feeling discouraged or depressed or isolated, you can immediately connect with people who care about you and convince you there's a child trafficking ring operating in the white house basementhttps://t.co/Vj0O2JSz1B pic.twitter.com/EkzJsZNdi7— Ben Oberkfell (@benlikestocode) July 26, 2021
So. Facebook has chosen to become a right wing venue.— WriterGuyfromLA. (@writerguyfromLA) July 25, 2021
When Hillsong Atlanta opened in June, it had a partner: Facebook. “They are teaching us, we are teaching them,” the pastor told me. He also signed an NDA.— Elizabeth Dias (@elizabethjdias) July 25, 2021
That's just the start. Facebook is shaping the future of religious community.

It's bad enough that churches get that info and it can be used in a way that verges on emotional blackmail, but imagine Facebook having that info on you, even if you didn't volunteer it. Your evangelical granny or auntie or mom of sister or cousin is just so worried about you...— Mostly Feral Flight Risk🎠🍕 (@FugaPericulum) July 25, 2021
Sooo much stuff in this article. A little Freudian slip at the end by a pastor: "partnering with Facebook, 'to directly impact & help churches navigate & reach the consumer better'...'Consumer isn’t the right word,” he said, correcting himself. 'Reach the parishioner better.'” https://t.co/Eicce0USCw— Dr. Emily Hill (@emilybethhill) July 25, 2021
thank you so much for this reporting…the monumental spiritual challenge for faith leaders is going to be figuring out how to foster spiritual growth on a platform designed to amp up our compulsivity, doubt, fear, rage…to say it’s a deal w/the devil doesn’t feel hyperbolic to me— Tom Simpson (@tomsimpsonphd) July 25, 2021

“This year Facebook tested a prayer feature, where members of some Facebook groups can post prayer requests and others can respond.”— Mehrsa Baradaran (@MehrsaBaradaran) July 26, 2021
This is completely normal and everything is fine and it’s ok for FB to profit from prayer. 🙏🏽💰 https://t.co/PPOlB1YPcF
Facebook, after tearing the US apart politically, is now focusing on something new: religion.— David Gilbert (@daithaigilbert) July 26, 2021
What could go wrong?
It’s just the leading cause of wars globally combined with the most powerful disinformation tool in history.
I’m sure it will be fine...https://t.co/FyXNhX4Tn6
“The company aims to become the virtual home for religious community, and wants churches, mosques, synagogues and others to embed their religious life into its platform, from hosting worship services and socializing more casually to soliciting money.”https://t.co/qdPAOdXyog— Anthony B.
