Are we become all of a sudden inactive? Certainly not, although those of you catching our updates from Facebook might have this impression after a few days. As a matter of fact, it all started back on Nov. 26, 2018 when sharing our former Single Of The Week – Lisa Stansfield‘s ‘Deeper +’ – in various groups. This before receiving a notification saying this post was “going against the Facebook Community Standards“. Then we eventually got restricted from posting in groups we don’t administrate for the next 24 hours. With the process repeating itself from then on each time we wanted to share some new content on FB…
Luckily enough, Facebook acknoweldged their mistake almost instantly the first time. But as we wanted to be wishing a Happy Birthday to Tom Moulton with a cut – ‘My Love Is Free’ – by the likes of Double Exposure, we received an other notification saying we were going once again against Facebook Community Standards. Even though FB recognized once again their mistake. But this time after a bit longer.
We then came to share Inner Life‘s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ on Nov. 30. Thus generating the same result in regards to Facebook Community Standards, although we’re still in the wait for some reaction from them. Then, if ever this wasn’t already enough, the exact same applied on Dec. 03 when willing to share our tribute to the late Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson. And I’m not even talkin’ about our current Single Of The Week. In other words, ‘Real Love’ by the likes of Chelsea Wilson which we avoided sharing as off now!
Now you’re telling me, when is this to be goin’ to an end? I suppose we would have the beginning of an answer if the issue was comin’ from us. Because of say a programming mistake somewhere. But it’s obviously not the matter here. No more than any of our posts seems to be getting against the Facebook Community Standards at the end. As a result, better saying it’s in the hands of the Creator. Because not even can we predict when Facebook will react, if ever they end up doin’ so at last, so that we’re not anymore encountering this annoying situation.
Thereafter, their reaction to our appeal: “Thanks for letting us know about this post. We’ll try to take another look to check if it goes against our Community Standards and send you a message to your Support Inbox here if we have an update.” As you can see, they say they’ll “try to take another look”. But what if ever they don’t?
As for now, we find ourselves in the obligation to avoid sharing anything on Facebook. This unless taking the risk of havin’ our account on FB suspended if not deleted. Which we certainly don’t want…
With warm thanks for your understanding,
