So if you’re reading this then it means that the Turtleboy Sports Facebook page is back from its 30 day suspension. We obviously need to work on our communication with turtle riders because NO ONE should be this reliant on a site that arbitrarily shuts down our page for no reason. For starters, please like the Lost Boys of Turtleboy Facebook page. While you’re at it, please like the Turtleboy Smiles and Sunshine page. We made two pages in case one of them gets shut down. They’ve already shut down the Turtleboy Sports Fallout Shelter, Turtleboy Refugees, and Turtleboy Safe Space. So it’s REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT to follow these directions from now on. It’s not really hard either. We have a link to the Lost Boys page at the top of every single blog we’ve published. But for whatever reason, people still aren’t getting the message.
More importantly, just go to the page silly. It’s insane how many people thought we were dead because they relied on reading Turtleboy directly from the Facebook page. Newsflash – you have the ability to just go directly to http://turtleboysports.com whenever you want. It’s pretty cool. Do not let Facebook control the information you consume. Very Orwellian stuff. Not good.
Anyway, from now on Turtleboy Sports will NOT be writing anything on our Facebook page. We refuse to give the trolls anything to report. And by trolls, we all know who this is in reference to.
We can’t let the bad guys win. Instead we will just be posting links to our blogs and then you can comment as you wish and enjoy Margaret Melican’s poetry (even though she’s been suspended twice in the last week as well). It sucks that Facebook has become a place where people like Turtleboy have to worry about writing harmless statements like this:
Because it will be reported for pornography. But that’s just the hand we’ve been dealt. We have no choice because 80% of our traffic comes directly from Facebook, and we make money by getting page views. This month page views were nearly cut in half. It’s pretty cool that we can still get over a million visits every month despite being handicapped like this. But the fact of the matter is that we are running a business and that business lost a lot of money this month and we can’t be taking hits like that going forward. Turtleboy has too many mouths to feed. We could either bitch about it or find a way around it. This is just the cost of doing business for us.
P.S. Later on we’re going to write a letter to Facebook and we would urge you all to copy and paste it and email it to them as well. We need to bombard their inbox and let them know what’s going on. The Turtleboy army will not be defeated.
Double P.S. If you don’t know why we were suspended then here’s how you can catch up:
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
