In a congressional hearing into Facebook and Instagram’s impact on youth mental health Thursday, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) was questioning Facebook’s global head of safety Antigone Davis when he revealed just how little he knows about big tech and the platforms Facebook created, including Instagram.
“Will you commit to ending Finsta?” Blumenthal asks Davis, referring to the term given to secondary Instagram accounts used by people who wish to have a public profile and a more private profile to share content with a smaller circle of people.
“Senator, again, let me explain, we don’t actually do Finsta,” Davis responded. “What Finsta refers to is young people setting up accounts where they may want to have more privacy.

PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
