The more we research our Facebook issue the more we realize we are not alone:
So this guy Chiseled Adams has about 92,000 Facebook followers. He shares really controversial stuff like this:
It’s literally the most unoffensive, harmless comedy about sports. There is simply no way any of this could offend anyone, nor does it violate any of Facebook’s terms of service.
But that’s because it does’t violate Facebook’s terms of service. Someone who didn’t like him just mass reported him over and over again until he got this:
Been there before dude.
Apparently he’s just leaving Facebook to go to Youtube and Instagram. Guess who owns Instagram?
Look, we’d gladly go to Youtube or IG or Twitter primarily, but they’re all run by the same people. Silicon Valley businesses make billions and billions of dollars, but none of them have any sort of customer service. And they’re all run by SJWs who encourage people to report anything that hurts their feelz. As a result you get page after page after page taken down.
I’d say that their product will eventually fail because in a free market we can just choose a better product. But the fact of the matter is that there are no alternatives. Facebook is a monopoly. They have over 1.8 billion users. IG has 600 million. Twitter 330 million. People come to Facebook because everyone is on Facebook. I could count all my friends and family on one hand who don’t have a Facebook. I hardly know any that use the others. If we left Facebook it would defeat the purpose because we’d be avoiding the biggest market that ever existed in the world.
The bottom line is that Facebook needs to put pages into two categories to start – personal and business. There needs to be separate rules for each. The fact of the matter is that Facebook makes large amounts of money off of us. Our page had 112,000 followers. Facebook collects data on all of you and your browsing history and then sells that data to advertisers. We pay them money to boost certain posts, which they suggest we stuff like this:
“Build your business.” Shouldn’t businesses have the right to know that Facebook will then erase your business after you’ve built it up if a mob of trolls mass reports you? They’ve solicited us. They accept our money. And then they take it all away with no phone number or customer support to contact.
Facebook should be treating businesses like the customers they are. They wanted us to use their platform. So we did, and they made money off of us. Facebook has an obligation to recognize the importance of these companies and protect them from mobs, cyberbullying, and online harassment. They need to have a system in place that would protect businesses from instantaneous removal. They need to have a human being contact the owner of a page if there is a dispute and get it resolved. They are free to take down any pages that violate the rules, but it should be innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around.
The bottom line is that we shouldn’t have to leave Facebook. What kind of legitimate company doesn’t have a Facebook page in 2018? Police departments, newspapers, and television stations use it as their primary means of communication. So where’s Congress and the FCC to start actually holding Facebook accountable for their business practices? Oh right, it’s got nothing to do with Trump’s latest tweet so they could give a shit less. My mistake.
