Spotted: Local Raging Grannies participating in #FacebookBlackout days
Menlo Park resident Gail Sredanovic (pictured in pink jacket) was among the Raging Grannies that joined a protest in front of the Facebook thumbs up sign on December 9 (International Anti-Corruption Day) calling for a 48-hour Facebook blackout. The campaign was spurred on by Facebook’s decision in October to amend its political advertising policy — exempting politicians from Facebook’s community standards and fact-checking in the name of free speech. A Ms Magazine article has details.
