Banned, Censored, Social Media

I have spent the last few years working on Facebook, neglecting my own work, I’m ashamed to admit. Facebook finally banned me, and I am very glad they did, because otherwise I might never have left.

I will be spending more time updating my own websites and less time on social media.  It’s going to take getting used to but I think it’s the right thing to do.  I am totally against censorship.  Do you want to know what I did to get banned?

I posted this meme and they took it down, so I posted it again.  Normally, after posting the second time they would leave it be, but not this time.  They removed it again.  So, I put it back up and I was banned from Facebook. All my content, all my uploads and all discussion and posts I’ve made over the last decade to Facebook were removed.

You Did the Reich Thing

 

They said it violates community standards.  I don’t know about you, but I find this meme harmless and Facebook’s censorship heavy-handed.  Fortunately, I had added my husband as an administrator to all of my groups and pages, something I highly recommend, in case you ever get banned.  We put notices up on all my pages and groups and removed any pictures that I could.

You are not the customer on Facebook. You are the product.  You are how they make money.  Vote with your feet.  We can stop this but it’s going to take a concerted effort.  Apparently, they think they can survive without people that add content.  Let’s show them the truth.  

So, that is why I’m back on my own website and I’ll be posting daily or weekly or whenever there is something to tell you about. What’s on your mind?
