Conservative groups and individuals are noticing that the reach on their Facebook pages has dropped dramatically in the last couple months – and some are saying it’s not by accident.
Twice in one week last month, Pastor Rich Penkoski had videos from his “Warriors for Christ” Facebook page removed from public view within seconds of him posting them.
“However, if you go into the video section, [which I can do] as the administrator of the page, I can see the videos – and it still shows as if it’s running live,” he explains – “but the public cannot see it,” he adds.
The result? His thriving online ministry has been silenced. “We were getting thousands and thousands of views per post. Now we’re lucky on some posts if we get 50. And we have 12,500 followers on this new page,” he shares. (See earlier stories involving Pastor Penkoski)
