Among us

Right on cue, Facebook seems to have made itself an indispensable “fifth column,” with Red State reporting that new pop-up warnings are appearing on people’s feeds. The message warns users that they may have “been exposed to harmful extremist content.” Another asks whether the user is concerned that “someone you know is becoming extremist.” 

Both pop-ups link to a page for an organization which is “committed to helping people leave the violent far-right.” So now you see how the game is played. It does not seem a far cry from the tactics of Communist China
