I Knew We Wouldn't Get Along.Facebook Unpublished My Page! :((

Last Update: June 06, 2019

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.

Who knows...

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...

Facebook can be a pain yes! and I do feel you,
lot's of times I did run in some angry, frustrating and unhappy times there,
but I do have learned how to avoid some of them, not because I have to be there but because I m not letting others take it away!

remember that it's one of the biggest social media platforms and somehow if you really are growing your online presence and business you know that all the biggest marketers, affiliate business are there!

so it's up to you on how to build some walls and defense against the attackers and saboteurs......and stupidity of the commoners.

But then it's all up to you, and how deeply you feel about the matter,
and if disrupt your daily harmony too much and too many times

well, you know what to do!

You mentioned some great points. I am learning that many of the big marketers are there. I've also known people who haven't used social media at all and still become 6 figure earners.

So, I guess I will have to think things over but, right now, I need to focus on other areas. Frustrating day I tell yea...

This in unrelated to the topic, but I love that snail picture! <3

I haven´t used FB for business, but FB annoys me in many ways. I have a private personal profile, and I don´t have hundreds of FB friends. There are some FB groups I like to use for communicating with people, who have some similar interests and life situations with me. I don´t spend all day in Facebook.

There´s no need to use all social medias for business, right? I mean, who has even time for all of them?? I guess it´s fine to stick to those that work best for you.

LOL...thanks for cheering me up.

Your right that little snail was cute to me too....LOL

I am so glad that they didn't hut down my personal page because I do the same. I like to join different FB groups and learn different things.

No, we don't have to use all social media for business. I've even heard some people not use any at all but, I still use them to drive a little more traffic.

I know, I don't have time for even one. Half the time, I am still working on my site so, social media really slows me down. I agree I would just stick to the ones that work best for you.

I can relate. Facebook has been a waste of time for me. I haven't had my page shut down, but I've had every post with a link to my website taken down by them. I wasn't linking all the time either, just randomly, and eventually every one of them was removed. I messaged them 3 or 4 times with no response. If you can't get any traffic to your site, then there's no point in the taking the time. I'm focused on Pinterest at the moment, but only just got started, so about 50 looks and 3 followers - but none of my personal pins have been removed! (Does Pinterest do that?)

I am starting to learn so many new things with Facebook. Just last night I discovered that tFB can remove links. That is crazy but, yet they allow all of this other nonsense.

Anyhow, I will not be back to FB any time soon. I did the same method as yourself. Barely posted, which is what really shocked me.

No Pinterest doesn't remove your pins. It took me about 60 days to start getting traction with Pinterest. I'm still learning their platform too.

Either way, I hear a lot of positive results come from Pinterest. You can also add affiliate links directly on Pinterest but, not WA affiliate links. They don't link WA affiliate links.

I'm not sure about Amazon either. I've never tried Amazon but, most of the other companies you can add direct affiliate links.

Was this a personal page you set up or specific group page for your business. I have several groups and have had no issues with them at all. They are all for several affiliate niches and follow rules facebook gives, and moderate to make sure others follow as well.

I see some groups like LittleMama's have people ask to join and they answer questions. Check with her, and see what she does to stay in sync with them overall. Some people swear by Facebook a lot, and others see little traffic. Groups can build good organic growth over time though and be helpful for others in the same programs.
Sorry for a bummer of a day. I understand your frustration though.

Thank you, for all of your feedback.

It was a business page that they shut down. I read their rules and followed what they said so, it would have been nice to know where I messed up at.

My personal page is still very active. They didn't remove my domain nor did they deactivate my personal page.

My business page, on the other hand, I barely used but, the day, I went to share my latest article it was shut down.

Oh yeah! I am in Grace's group too. I'll have to see what she does.

You're right I see many people say Facebook is great for business. I don't know why I have a hard time with them myself.

Either way, there are many other places to build my presence so, until I find a solution, I'll focus on other areas.

Facebook can be a frustration cess pool. Half the time their stuff don't work, and you have to fix something. You get notifications you dont want, and don't receive the stuff you do want. I have no words of wisdom here.

My today my rank is 1666. I'm not overly superstitious, and I know someone has to be that rank, but I am not liking it LOL
lakbar12 Premium
I agree it is a really frustrating place to be. I guess, it is a positive thing that they have shut my page down. Now, I have a great excuse for why I am not present there.

Oh, no! I definitely understand about the rank thing. I agree I wouldn't like it either. But, no worries it should change tomorrow...lol
