100,000 conservatives join Facebook alternative

More than 100,000 people have joined a social networking site designed for conservatives who said they were tired of censorship and liberal bullying on Facebook.

The Tea Party Community launched nine days ago — and since then has experienced tremendous growth, founder Tim Selaty, Sr., told Fox News.

“I suppose that a lot of conservatives were looking for a new home,” he said. “(Conservatives) are flocking from Facebook in droves.”

Facebook did not return emails seeking comment.
