Club News – Social Media Boycott Friday 30th April 2021

The FA have joined other football bodies in sending an open letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook’s founder, chairman and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, amid increased levels abuse aimed at footballers on social media.

We, South Coast Athletico, support the FA in their decision to boycott all social media until 11:59pm on Monday 3rd May 2021.

Social Media companies MUST DO MORE:

Put stronger preventative and takedown measures in place to stop discriminatory abuse being sent or seen.

Be accountable for safety on platforms and protect users by implementing effective verification.

Ensure real-life consequences for online discriminatory abuse: ban perpertrators, stop account re-registration and support law enforcement.
