As this blog title suggests, I am quite frustrated. Someone (I do not know who) reported my posts - those that contained my GoFundMe and blog links - as spam. Any "spam" is against Facebook Community Standards. Therefore, every single post and even my chats that referenced these links have been systematically removed from Facebook.
I reviewed Facebook's Community Standards - specifically the section where "spam" is discussed - and am not finding any violation whatsoever. Another friend, who is incredibly intelligent, also scoured through the Community Standards - and could not find any violation either. If you would like to review - please access the Community Standards section on spam here: https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards/spam/.
To add to my frustration... Facebook does not offer an appeal process for when something is deemed as "spam" - further, based on my research, most of the reports of "spam" are reviewed by computer algorithms - and not by a human.
Of course, there is not "Contact Us" option for Facebook to provide feedback - that this is simply a link to a GoFundMe site and my personal blog. I see GoFundMe links all of the time on my Facebook newsfeed. Heck, there are even Facebook pages and groups devoted to only sharing GoFundMe efforts.
I am hurt that someone would deem my posts "spam." If you do not want to see any more of my posts - simply unfollow or unfriend me on Facebook. It's that easy!
I am frustrated at the behemoth that is Facebook - and that it does not afford an opportunity for me to interface with a human, let alone appeal or send feedback. In a desperate attempt to have my posts reinstated, I sent a message to Mark Zuckerberg through Facebook Messenger last night (I assume that he probably has a team of employees monitoring his messages - makes sense, right?) Of course, I've not heard anything yet.
If anyone has any other ideas for how to contact Facebook to resolve this mess, please reach out to me.
