Shrivvy Join Gab

With Big Tech censorship being ramped up towards the end of 2020, our very own Media Officer Mike Wray, was hit with a “temporary ban” by Facebook on January 7 [2021], for the heinous crime of attempting to advertise the fact that Shrivenham Football Club also have a MeWe account.

With Facebook having no control over MeWe, highlighting the alternative platform using their tag line:  “No Ads. No Spyware. No BS.” was clearly a step too far for the Big Tech oligarchs who like to sell users information, and that “temporary ban” remains in place to this very day.

As a result, supporters may have noticed that due to the restrictions, our Facebook account no longer carries all the regular updates that appear on Twitter and MeWe (as we now remain reliant on other Committee Members to copy and paste current news from our other platforms as and when they are able to do so).

With that in mind, Shrivenham Football Club are delighted to confirm that we have added Gab to the platforms that we are now available on, alongside our existing Twitter and MeWe accounts.

Gab is not controlled by Big Tech, so as expected, they saw their app removed by the Apple and Google Play Stores (see a pattern emerging here?!) but despite this, Gab is web based so users can add an “app” to the home screens of their phones to gain simple access regardless (see the instructions at the bottom of this article).

With Big Tech censorship expected to continue during 2021 and beyond, Gab was the ideal choice for us to find another home, as its the fastest growing alternative media platform on the internet – they also own their own servers (unlike Parler, whom Amazon removed from their servers due to them becoming too popular!) so there’s no chance of them being de-platformed in the future.

Regular visitors to our Twitter account will already have seen how they attempt to block access to our Bitchute account for similar reasons, so we’re not sure how long it will be until they follow suit so we’re acting now, rather than leaving it too late to make the switch.

As we like to stay ahead of the curve, and with the decline of Facebook and Twitter clearly underway, users have already begun to seek out alternative, less restrictive platforms so we’d urge any supporters who want to get club news, videos and stories as they break, to head to MeWe and Gab and join us over there today!
