I Knew We Wouldn't Get Along.Facebook Unpublished My Page! :((
Sorry ladies and gents, I just have to vent.
Yesterday, was a frustrating day!
If you haven't heard me mention before, that Facebook and I don't get along. Let me say that again. For some reason, Facebook and I don't get along, and I just don't know why.
I don't know if we will ever get along. I'm not an in your face type of person, I don't like to share things about my kids and I just rather be doing other things than be on FB.
So, I have concluded that Facebook is not my type of crowd. I never had a FB before internet marketing and never desired one either.
I don't know!
It could just be too much noise on that platform for me.
Plus, there are too many people always dropping in my inbox with nonsense. From my experience, it feels like a dating service platform. Not that I've ever been involved with one...lol
But, if I had I guess this is what it would feel like and that could be the real reason why FB makes me so uncomfortable.
I mean just random unknown people always calling me via messenger.
In my opinion, it's just too much drama for me.
Needless, to say I barely share anything on Facebook due to those very reasons.
Anyhow, earlier this year I started a new business page, because, I decided to give FB another chance. I decided to ignore the drama and carry on, which I did.
Oh yeah did I mention that they have shut my accounts down like 3 or 4 times starting from when I first started internet marketing.
Now, that was heart breaking. Especially knowing I had a big following.The struggles of social media.
Regardless, I said, when I started my new FB business page, I would ignore all the trolls, which I did.
I barely share on my personal page, adn I never share business realted post on my personal page.
I probably od more of resharing a post or two every two weeks, just to keep some activity going. So, I thought this would be okay but, no!
I also rarely share on my FB business page because, Google Analytic said FB is my worst traffic. (something like that)
Moving right along!
Yesterday I went to share a post since I haven't shared on my FB business page in weeks. And I get his message.
What does this mean, someone has reported me as being abusive. ME, are you serious?
Do they know how much so-called abuse I see and get on FB? and they have the nerve to say I'm abusive. I mean all the nudity, and indecent conversations...FB can shove it for all I care.
I just don't get it...to people even know what abuse is, apparently not!Sorry I'm just upset...
- I have not promoted ANY affiliate links at all.
- I don't publish but once every so many days.
- I also haven't approached others.
- I don't share lies or anything like that. Nor to I post misleading information.
- What is it that I have done?
- My website is active and I share via my website. So, I use my own domain URL when I share on FB.
My website can still be shared on my personal page which is crazy to me. I don't understand. So, apparently they haven't shut my personal page down, crazier. And my website URL is still clickable on FB...craziest...All my hard work down the drain once again.
I then google search and I discover that I might need to debug and unblock my domain. Nope that doesn't work.
I then go to my FB page and realized that have completely unpublished my entire page. Once again, me and Facebook aren't getting along.
Yes, I sent in an appeal with no answer.
If they never respond, I won't be surprised. I took the same process with my other FB personal pages that they shut down.
Facebook even wanted me to send in my Drivers License which I did and they still haven't't responded.
It's been almost a year now.
In my opinion, that is one platform that's full of itself.
But, who am I because apparently billions of people love that space. Anyhow, I wasn't getting traffic from there anyways, according to my GA.
So, the best part about this situation is there is no lost in traffic.
I guess, I'll be working on building my exposure on Linkedin, Twitter, and Pinterest just as I have been. They tend to be safer for me.
Plus, I get more targeted engagement there.
Sorry about the rant ladies and gents I was just so upset, gave myself a major headache and I still have one today but, I will not let FB ruin my success.
So, I need to continue pushing forward and focus in other areas.
This could just be a sign that I am wasting my time there, who knows.
Only time will tell.
I hope you all have an amazing and productive day! keep pushing....
Don't let anything get in your way...
