Why Facebook Why?

Okay guys buckle up I about to have a rant. This week Facebook had stopped me from sharing any of my post from my blog? Apparently I am not alone they have also barred Annette Rochelle Aben and Ellen Best, all three of us can no longer share our blog posts on Facebook. Our crime is that our posts “Go Against Facebook Community Standards” ?

Why I hear you ask, have you been racist, radical, offering strange cooking lessons, advocated suicide self harm or other horrible things that I do not care to write down. No Annette Rochelle Aben was sharing daily angels I believe, Ellen Best’s post was about a Whale and my sin was to share two of my older posts on depression.

I am at a loss as to why this has happened.

Trying to get hold of anyone at Facebook is impossible in fact as I have said on Facebook it is easier to get a camel through the eye of a needle then it is to breach their closed doors.

I have submitted four appeals against my (all now blocked posts) and regularly checked my security box to find no new mail and the four enquiries I had sent marked X and “Closed” .

Ellen and I even went through Facebook Debugger no answer from them to either of us!

This is upsetting because even though I can read posts and comment in fact do anything but share. I belong to three groups and now I cannot share my blog like everyone else.

I am upset and angry for Annette, Ellen and myself. Please if you know how to get hold of Facebook we would be very grateful.

Hugs to all willow with clipped wings.πŸ˜ͺ

    This is another reason why I deleted my Facebook account in January. In my eyes it’s a dead duck and too big for its boots. Sorry you’re having trouble, Willow x

    I wish I could help- am not good at this and I dread the large companies who are too enormous for customer service. Know there is emotional support here!

    Although I deleted my Facebook account two years ago, Willow, I’m sure I did read somewhere that Facebook had stopped instant blog feeds onto their platform. I think it had something to do with money! However, I thought people were still able to cut and paste the URL of their blog post to their Facebook page. It has to be done every time you publish a new post. Have you tried that method?

    Glad I’m not on it. My WP blog is my only ‘social media’ and I’m happy to keep it that way.
    Family are on FB, but no-one ever contacted me anyway, so there’s no point for me.

    I wouldn’t even know if my blog posts still go automatically to FB. If I can’t find the saved link I can’t remember how to get in. Just ignore it. Family send messages through messenger if they have anything to tell me, and I can live without seeing photos of what my cousin ate last night. FB is a useless tool.

    Facebook seem to be a law unto them selves, there are plenty of posts about depression and suicide awareness that haven’t been blocked which are important for people to share and try to understand and yet they continue to allow anti minority posts and despite complaints they still remain

      I know it’s all too stressful and stupid. I just used the account to keep up with the blogger’s Bash and a couple of sharing groups but if I can share o shall leave… ######@# Facebook πŸ’œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ’œ

    When FB decided you could only automatically share your posts if you have a page. No thanks. I have a food page, I’m not creating another just to share automatically my posts!
    But how strange you cannot share your URL?

    I don’t understand it, either, Willow. My posts still appear on both of my Facebook pages. I have a separate page just for my website, and it then “shares” all my posts to my personal page, and I then “share” publically. So far, I haven’t had to manually cut and page the post URL to either site, but I’m sure that’s coming. Your posts are informative and helpful, not “abusive.” I would have thought my recent post with the toilet paper photo could have been considered offensive, but that got through just fine. I hope you manage to get the situation straightened out somehow.

    Facebook sucks. There’s no method to anything they do except to make money for people at the top. I used to report blatant abuse & they didn’t care… obviously abusive, racist, and fake accounts were left alone to harass people. I dumped all their products a year ago & do not miss the stress.

    If I could get hold of them, it’d be by the neck and I’d be squeezing.

    This happened to us two weeks ago. After much checking, WP and FB, I managed to find a help screen and pleaded our case. They said they would investigate, but didn’t sound hopeful. A week later, our posts started appearing again.
    Don’t just accept their decision, keep trying, as this should be stopped…

      I am shocked but angry. Ellen Best, Annette Rochelle and myself have been bombardeding Facebook from every direction but they are totally ignoring us . Ignorant gits! But we won’t give up.

    They may have you confused with someone else. I agree with other suggestions to delete the account or switch to Instagram.

    How annoying. I have no clue with facebook. I have a face book page. I am often torn to shutting it all down as facebook arent the best of companies and you cant get hold of anyone and nothing is easy or simple to sort out .

    It is crazy that your blog posts are banned..random.. and well do facebook have a clue.

    Hugs..

    Willow, I rarely log into FB anymore – have come to completely distrust it. Sorry to hear they’ve done this to you. My cousin is now banned from FB because someone else with the same name in a different state posted something that made FB believe he’s not a real person! Very ridiculous, and he too hasn’t been able to do anything about it. I hope you get your problem resolved. Sounds maddening! 😡

        No, I think he decided it wasn’t worth the trouble. I would delete my own account there but it’s my only connection to some family members and old friends from school. No one wants to email these days – for some it’s FB or nothing. ❀️

    It seems to also be dependent upon who is reviewing the content as they are inconsistent. I wanted to rename Realistic Cooking Ideas to Supper Plate which is the new name. They would not let me but other people have changed their group name without problem. They are not consistent at all. Very frustrating.

    Thank you Willow for highlighting this conundrum. Three weeks I have been stopped from posting with no explanation or attempt to reply.
