Default We need a rival

.
we need a rival to Facebook and Twitter.. They can't offer a fair shake. Our president is finally getting tired of the very biased way the social networks have treated conservatives, so it is time we have an unbiased social discussion venue.

So, how does a social entity remain unbiased? That is easy..just don't butt in ! Since the two in question have proven they cannot contain themselves, so a whole new venue is needed.

A search engine such as Duckduck.go has proven itself as being able to remain free from outside influence, financial or otherwise, so I wonder but what with presidential and citizen encouragement, they could set up just such a site. https://duckduckgo.com/?va=z&t=hk

IG, the forums are picking up again, even some new ones are showing up. FB acts like the old KGB sometimes with its members.
Censoring even the simplest of post. And never say anything bad about Islam and Muslims over there.
I thought duck duck was only a browser.

duckduck is just a browser, but have shown themselves so far to be able to contain themselves politically. I am only suggesting that with their history of "fairness' and their expertise in the field, they would be a good place to start to look for a new social media.

What would you call it, Farcebook?
