U.S. News and World Report quotes Monica Stephens, in a story about Parler, a Twitter-like social media platform that bills itself as a haven for free speech. "It's not particularly new to have one political party or one perspective feel disappointed or marginalized by sort of the mainstream, if you will – the mainstream social media, or whatever – and to create their own outlet," Stephens says. She adds that users "might be signing up for Parler, and it might be serving as that echo chamber, but they're still going to be going back to Facebook to see pictures of their grandkids."
