Legal Issues – A crisis on social media

You might have noticed that over the past week things have been very quite here at EMG. We’ve been working hard writing scripts and conducting research for our upcoming programs and putting a lot of effort into the Parliamentary Report, which has included graphic optimizations and a refresh in design.

The major thing that we’ve been trying to sort out are the new restrictions surrounding social media and advertising. Since all of our posts on here get posted across 3 major social media networks, we have to be careful to follow the community standards.

Justin Trudeau has caused a lot of problems when he summoned many of these same social media companies to Ottawa. He has imposed a very restrictive new digital charter that restricts the free flow of information. These new rules that were put in place on Facebook put the bulk of our business in jeopardy of not being able to publish to the platform or share links about our episodes.

The new rules on Facebook ban all advertising about social issues, elections and politics in Canada unless you have “proved” you identity and location of residence to Facebook because they its a “danger to the safety to the community.”

Our company President Mr Joshua Eaton has taken steps to make sure we are able to stay in business and keep publishing to social media. Hes provided all necessary paperwork & identification to Facebook. He was sent a letter with a physical verification code and as of July 10th is now allowed to post/share/advertise about any of the “restricted topics”.

On July 10th, Mr. Eaton submitted the Facebook pages for both Eaton Media Group & the Intellectual Dark Web to be approved. We heard back from Facebook on the 11th and both pages have been approved

We are safe and hope that no more issues come up thanks to the federal government.
