YES and NO.
Mr. Obama has used Facebook and other social media platforms to reach out to millions and advance his agenda. He is a social media magnet. At the time of writing this article, the Facebook group, Barack Obama (One Million Strong for Barack), had 1 063 122 members.
The group also links with the White House, giving Mr. Obama and his supporters tremendous opportunities to advance his agenda.
Facebook owes Barack and millions of it’s peace-loving users around the world. This time it’s not the usual violation where third-party applications manipulate Facebook policies or user photos and personal information. It’s about the heinous dream to have the President of the United States assassinated.
Such wishes must be kept as far away as possible from popular public spaces such as Facebook. Facebook must clean its act and tighten it’s policies. Facebook users must stay vigilant and report polls like this before they spread like a virus.
