12 years, many thousands of posts, and half a million fans later, Facebook recently deleted GreenMedInfo.com's professional page for "violating community standards on health misinformation that could cause physical harm."
Following a wave of censorship that began in 2019 with Google’s “digital book burning” and removal of natural health websites from their search results, and Mailchimp’s sudden deplatforming of us in 2019, growing rapidly in 2020, and reaching even more alarming proportions in the window of COVID-19 with the publication of digital hit lists intended to intimidate and spread hate and fear, Facebook has now unpublished the Greenmedinfo professional page, followed by 533,630 fans, providing the following message as an explanation:
“Your Page has been unpublished for going against the Facebook Community Standards on health misinformation that could cause physical harm.”
Established in 2009, the GreenMedInfo page grew rapidly over the years to over half a million followers, who used Facebook’s social media functionality to connect and share information that resonated with them, such as our mission:
