You know Neil Young. He’s on the cutting edge of everything.
Last week he sued Donald Trump for copyright infringement because the Republican incumbent was using Neil’s songs without permission at campaign rallies.
Now, Neil’s archives are spending $20,000 to detach themselves from social media. They want their members to sign in directly and not through Facehook or Google. (Neil Young has the most extensive archive website I’ve ever seen. You could go down a rabbit hole and never return!)
Members received this message today. I guess there won’t be any Facebook Live shows with Neil any time soon.
|NYA DAYS AWAY FROM DROPPING SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM|
|We have been working on this project for a couple of months. Trying to disengage from the corrupt social platform is a costly and time-consuming process for NYA. Our cost will be almost $20,000 to disengage, while treating our subscribers with respect, making it as easy as possible for them to continue with us after Facebook.|
|Facebook knowingly allows untruths and lies in its political ads to circulate on the platform, while bots sow discord among users. Sowing dissent and chaos in our country via political disinformation is something we can not condone. Simply put, Facebook is screwing with our election.|
|The money we are spending to get out of this mess is designed to make it as easy as possible for our valued Facebook users to log in simply and securely to NYA without the social media platform involved in any way. It is in keeping with what we have been maintaining re: the irresponsible social media platform for the past two years.|
|NYA strives to be a place where music lovers can get all of my music at its highest quality, while keeping up on news and views from around the world that we wish to share. We are primarily a music platform featuring all the background information, films, videos, and credits associated with each piece of music we present while offering unparalleled listening quality.|
