Facebook 50 hour black-out

From The Panel, 4:50 pm on 22 March 2019

There's a call for people to log-out of Facebook accounts this weekend for 50 hours, one hour for each of the victims who lost their lives in the Christchurch mosque attacks. As we know the horrendous killing was live streamed from Facebook and shared more than 1.5 million times around the world. The idea of the black-out is to impact the social media giant's revenue streams, prompting them to do more to prevent atrocities like this from being shared in the future.
