Do you think social media is censoring people's offensive opinions?

There's a thing called shadow banning. Social media websites like Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc, let your comment to be posted but it doesn't get shown to the people. It secretly prevents your comment from being visible. And they won't even tell you about it. Isn't it unfair?

    It's downright unconstitutional because it interferes with freedom of speech.

    I don't use social media, however, you must realize that freedom of speech doesn't apply as they are businesses that can allow/censor whatever they feel like.

    I don't use most of those sites (and thanks David, for helping make me realize my mistake). 

    But there's definitely a right wing bias on fb, awhile back I had tried jokingly posting a picture

    ridiculing the confederate flag & was suspended for a week. Meanwhile a neighbor of mine 

    often poses for pictures with his guns and/or dead animals he's just murdered in cold blood, 

    and facebook tells me 99% of the time "We looked at it but it doesn't violate our guidelines".

    If they are, it's most likely due to a fear of truth being told. Only cowards use something called shadow ban.
