TechCrunch: Facebook is the recruiting tool of choice for far-right group the Proud Boys . “The Proud Boys, a self described ‘Western chauvinist’ organization that often flirts with more hard-line groups of the far right, runs an elaborate network of recruiting pages on Facebook to attract and initiate members. While McInnes maintained a presence on many platforms, Facebook is the heart of the group’s operations. It’s there that the Proud Boys boast more than 35 regional and city-specific groups that act as landing pages for vetting thousands of new members and feeding them into local chapters.”
