This week, Facebook started sending messages to users telling them that they have been exposed to a friend who is “becoming an extremist” and that users should rat their friends out.
That’s right, Facebook is now telling you that your Facebook connections are extremist terrorists who you should tell Facebook all about.
Kira Davis noted that she got the message on Wednesday:
Hey has anyone had this message pop up
on their FB? My friend (who is not an ideologue but hosts lots of competing chatter) got this message twice. He’s very disturbed. pic.twitter.com/LjCMjCvZtS

Other Twitter users also noted the appearance of the messages:
“Let me manipulate you by saying some arbitrary enemy is manipulating you.” The gaslighting is unreal. pic.twitter.com/dIJRuaMHlH

Per Fox News:
A second Facebook alert was reported on Twitter by users who claimed to have received a warning stating “You may have been exposed to harmful extremist content recently.” That message also followed with the statement “Violent groups try to manipulate your anger and disappointment. You can take action now to protect yourself and others.”
The “support” link took users to a support page that linked to Life After Hate, which was described as “a nonprofit that provides support to anyone who wants to leave hate behind and solve problems in nonviolent ways.”
Facebook tried to claim that the snitchware effort was just a “test.”
But this is just the next brick in the road to the left’s fascist effort to use every lever of power to push the leftist agenda.
