FLASHBACK: Facebook Caught Throttling President Trump’s Facebook Page – Engagements Down by 45%

On Tuesday President Trump warned Google about it’s biased practices of hiding conservative content on their platform.

But it’s not just Google that is throttling conservative content.

Facebook also practices censorship of conservative content.
In fact President Trump’s Facebook page is censored by Facebook.

In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform.

This was after Facebook announced it was losing 50,000,000 user hours a day in the previous quarter.

The algorithm change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.


In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.

Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic.

This is how Democrats fight back — Not with better ideas but with smash-mouth fascist tactics to ruin any threats to their total dominance.

Young Cons, Western Journalism, SarahPalin.com, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.

The Gateway Pundit does not rely on Facebook for our traffic numbers but Facebook is a significant part of every major publication’s strategy today.

Still, we saw a significant drop in Facebook traffic since the beginning  of the year–  .
And in March  Facebook shut down our traffic stream from the social media platform.

Our Facebook traffic went from 33% of our total traffic to 3% of our total traffic since the beginning of 2018.

This is corrupt, if not criminal, behavior.

Meanwhile, liberal sites are doing fine.

A recent report by Outline organization confirmed the conservative publishers were hit the hardest by the recent Facebook news feed changes.

The study also found the The Gateway Pundit was hit the hardest by these changes.

Via The Outline:

Facebook’s January 12 announcement that it would begin to de-prioritize news publishers and their posts in users’ News Feeds has had a surprisingly profound and partisan impact. According to The Outline’s analysis of Facebook engagement data obtained from research tool BuzzSumo, conservative and right-wing publishers (such as Breitbart, Fox News, and Gateway Pundit) were hit the hardest in the weeks following the announcement, with Facebook engagement totals for February dropping as much as 55 percent for some, while the engagement numbers of most predominantly liberal publishers remained unaffected…

…The Outline drew these conclusions after analyzing the Facebook engagement data of 20 publishers from March 5, 2017 to February 28, 2018.

The Gateway Pundit published a report in April that shows how top conservative publishers have been targeted and their content eliminated on Facebook.

The Gateway Pundit report have over 300,000 views.

In March Facebook shut down our content. You cannot even share a Gateway Pundit story without getting a warning now.
And this is after we spent tens of thousands of dollars advertising on Facebook.

We are not alone.

In July we released a follow-up study that found that Facebook had elimintated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.

Let’s hope it’s not too late for the GOP — They should have acted sooner.
