Its been happening more and more. Facebook deactivates, removes or disables accounts of people who do not deserve it. Yet they allow, other material to be active.
First let me say, Facebook is a private site, owned by a private company. I agree with their right to allow and not allow whatever content they choose. However, I also have a right to disagree and in turn not use their product. Which is not easy. Facebook has created a wonderful niche in the online world. I have at least 100 people who visit my Facebook page, while I maybe get 3-4 on my blogs. Its a wonderful venue to share information and network.
But its getting tiresome. I woke up this am to find that one of my favorite birthing pages has been deactivated. The page owner has no clue as to why, and I am sure, like most people, Facebook will never tell her.
This is her backup page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Backup-Page-for-An-EDD-is-an-Estimated-Due-Date-not-an-Expiration-date/204858212867818
Maybe there was a photo someone didn't like, maybe someone just wanted to be spiteful and report them. Maybe someone was offended by ones beliefs. However, I find it hard to believe that facebook will deem a photo like this offensive (click here) and allow a photo like this (click here) to be displayed. They also allow content such as this (click here) that I think is completely dangerous. And yes I have reported the Sarah Palin one several times.
And not to mention that Facebook often disables my husbands account for sending to many private messages and at times wont allow him to make friend requests. I thought the purpose of Facebook was to network, interact with people, find old friends and meet new people?
Anyhow this is the last straw. I have taken a Facebook leave before, but if Facebook removed the pages I visit, what is the point of using Facebook?
