Creative email from the Songwriters Association of Washington DC (SAW) to members today:
Well Facebook and Instagram are down and everyone is SURE it has NOTHING TO DO with the whistleblower reports that they have been manipulating all of us with negativity. [Whistleblower says Facebook put profit before reining in hate speech | Reuters]
What can you do about it? Well, stop engaging in the onslaught of negativity that social media encourages and then…write a song (and don’t go negative) and enter it in the Mid Atlantic Song Contest (we even have a category for social justice songs called “freedom songs” and a video category this year). The deadline to enter is October 15 at midnight EST.
