受够了Facebook的人们,找到了这一社交乐园

受够了Facebook的人们,找到了这一社交乐园

美国总统大选和由此引发的巨大争议,让Parler迎来了发展的良机。

“不插电生活”大师加利•柯林斯曾经在Parler上问粉丝们为什么加入该平台。Parler是快速增长的保守派社交平台,其功能类似于推特(Twitter)。

用户尼科•亚扎瓦说:“因为我受够了Facebook上的‘事实核查’。”

另外一位用户凯瑟琳•斯特兰奇给出了一个反自由主义的答案:“我之所以加入Parler,是因为我不想再做大科技公司左派的一员。我不愿意被审查。”

美国总统大选和由此引发的巨大争议,让Parler迎来了发展的良机。保守派希望摆脱推特和Facebook,因为他们认为自己在这些平台上不受欢迎,并且受到了不公平对待,这让两年前推出的Parler服务的热度迅速攀升。

Parler上的氛围与福克斯新闻频道(Fox News)类似,用户经常将特朗普称为英雄,认为有人窃取了他的选举成果。以言论自由为卖点的Parler在11月10日发布了一系列帖子,链接到许多有关选举舞弊的说法,包括投票机器的缺陷、关于选民欺诈普遍存在的指控以及有关新冠疫情的阴谋论等。

此外,用户还抨击主流媒体和Facebook、推特等社交媒体服务,指控他们帮助自由派窃取选举结果,并参与掩盖真相。

用户艾维•叶梅尼发帖子称:“拜登发推文宣称自己将在2021年1月20日就任总统,为什么推特没有给他的推文贴上警告标签。他的推文与特朗普的推文一样‘存在争议’。”

目前已经有多位知名的保守派评论员入驻Parler平台。11月10日,福克斯新闻频道的塔克•卡尔森也加入了这个平台。他的账号开通后两个小时内,就已经有约17万粉丝。他的第一个帖子是其于11月9日参加节目的视频,他在视频中对大选结果提出了质疑。这个帖子得到了14,000次回应(类似于推特上的转发),获得了超过37,000个点赞(类似于Facebook上的点赞)。

与此同时,以智力竞赛节目《赢走本•斯坦的钱》(Win Ben Stein’s Money)和出演电影《春天不是读书天》(Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)而走红的本•斯坦,表达了对民主党的担忧。他在一个帖子中写道:“有没有发现所有独裁者都是从呼吁社会正义开始的?”有超过75.3万用户看到了这个帖子。“在斯坦家,我们现在不会放弃……

虽然Parler在11月10日的主要议题是大选,但新闻版面中的文章还包括“口罩宣传”、15美元最低工资如何让数百万人失业以及新泽西州最近的大麻合法化提案可能对大麻行业产生的影响等等话题。

并非所有帖子都在谈论严肃话题。例如,一位用户发布了一段NBC新闻频道(NBC News)记者肯•迪拉尼安的视频。他在电视直播的时候自言自语地咒骂,没有意识到正在直播。另外一位用户分享了一个基督教讽刺新闻网站上的文章,文中嘲笑乔•拜登和民主党,将他们比作漫威漫画(Marvel Comics)里的大反派灭霸,目标是通过杀死一半人口来实现全球稳定。

Parler公司的首席执行官约翰•马泽一直在炫耀其服务的增长速度。他于11月10日在Parler网站上发布了一份声明,称其服务迎来了“爆炸式增长”,自11月13日以来有超过450万用户开通了账号。他补充说,11月9日,该项服务的活跃用户超过500万,是一周前的8倍之多。

马泽讽刺了Facebook和推特等社交媒体的做法,称Parler会继续“反抗独裁者的内容监管”。随着选举临近,Facebook和推特都加强了对虚假信息的监管。过去两年,这两个平台都针对虚假信息和部分暴力内容设计了新的警告标签。

马泽在帖子中说道:“Facebook和推特对选举信息的打压是催化剂,导致许多人对他们失去信任。但离开这些平台的潮流早已开始。”

马泽也体会到了经营一个快速增长的社交媒体网站的复杂性。Parler正面临着其较为成熟的竞争对手几年前曾经经历过的问题。

马泽在11月10日的声明中承认,服务的增长导致网站出现了容量“紧张”,造成了“一些小故障和延迟”。公司已经解决了部分问题,有些问题仍然在处理当中,另外该公司还在不断推出新功能,以帮助用户选择自己感兴趣的内容,并为用户提供更简单的查找亲朋好友的方法。

与其想要对抗的社交网络一样,最近几个月,Parler与用户之间也是摩擦不断。虽然该平台号称是自由言论的避风港,但它意识到之前的政策过于宽松,因此制定了内容管理规则,增加了志愿审查员,以约束人性的阴暗面,比如淫秽内容和人类粪便的照片等。

由此可见,自由言论并不简单。(财富中文网)

Gary Collins, a guru of off-the-grid living, asked his fans on Parler, the fast-rising Twitter copycat for conservatives, why they had joined the service.

“Because I was sick of the truth being ‘fact checked’ on Facebook,” said one user going by the handle NicoYazawa.

Another user, Katherine Strange, gave an anti-liberal answer: “I joined Parler because I don’t want to be a part of BIG TECH leftists any longer. I will not be censored.”

The presidential election and associated anger it has sparked has given Parler a huge lift. The two-year-old service has skyrocketed in popularity as conservatives seek a home far away from Twitter and Facebook, where they feel unwelcome and unfairly treated.

The vibe on Parler is decidedly Fox News, with Trump routinely cast by users as a hero who has had an election stolen from him. The service, which touts its free speech credentials, on November 10 featured posts with links to unsubstantiated claims of flaws in voting machines, accusations of widespread voter fraud, and conspiracy theories about COVID-19.

Users also lashed out at mainstream media and social media services like Facebook and Twitter for allegedly helping liberals get away with election theft and being part of a cover-up, despite the lack of evidence.

“Why isn’t Twitter putting warnings on Biden’s tweets claiming he’ll be president from January 20th,” a user going by Avi Yemeni posted. “It’s just as ‘disputed’ as Trump’s tweets.”

On November 10, Parler, already home to a raft of well-known conservative commentators, landed yet another: Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Within the first two hours of joining, he had gained about 170,000 followers. His first post was a video of his November 9 show, in which he cast doubt on the election results. The post received more than 14,000 echoes, similar to retweets on Twitter, and more than 37,000 upvotes, similar to Facebook’s likes.

Meanwhile, Ben Stein, best known for his game show Win Ben Stein’s Money and his role in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, stewed about Democrats. “Have you ever noticed that all dictatorships begin with cries for social justice?” Stein said in a post that was seen by more than 753,000 users. “Here at the Stein household, we’re not going to give up now…#maga2020 #election2020 #parlerusa #trump.”

Though the chatter on Parler November 10 focused on the election, the news section also included articles discussing “mask propaganda,” how a $15 minimum wage may kill millions of jobs, and how New Jersey’s recent bill to legalize marijuana could impact the cannabis industry.

And not all of the posts were serious. One user, for example, shared a clip of the moment when NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian cursed to himself on live TV, not realizing he was on air. Another shared a Christian news satire site’s article poking fun at Joe Biden and the Democrats, comparing them to Thanos, a Marvel Comics villain whose goal is to kill half the population to create global stability.

Parler CEO John Matze has boasted about his service’s growth. In a statement on November 10 posted on the site, he said the service’s popularity has “exploded,” noting that more than 4.5 million users have created accounts since November 13. He added that more than 5 million users were active on the service on November 9, eight times as many as there were a week earlier.

Matze suggested that Parler will continue to “defy authoritarian content curation,” a dig at social media networks like Facebook and Twitter, which have tightened their rules on misinformation as the election neared. Over the past couple of years, both services have created new warning labels for misinformation and, in some cases, for violence. Twitter has also obscured posts from Trump to prevent election misinformation from spreading.

“Facebook and Twitter’s suppression of election information was a catalyst, causing many people to lose their trust,” Matze said in his post. “But the movement away from these platforms was already well underway.”

Matze is also getting a taste of the mundane complications of operating a quickly growing social media site—something that Parler’s more established rivals overcame years ago.

In his statement on November 10, Matze acknowledged that the service’s growth had “strained” the site’s capacity and caused “some glitches and delays.” The company has fixed some of the problems and is working on the others, as well as introducing new features to help users better choose what they see based on their interests, and to more easily find family and friends on the service.

In recent months, Parler, like the social networks it’s intended to counter, has had its own run-ins with users. Although a self-described haven for free speech, the service decided it had gone too far and created rules, adding volunteer moderators to rein in the dark side of human nature, including obscenity and photos of human feces.

Free speech is complicated.
