Recently I reopened my Facebook account, not because I like Facebook but because I am attempting to sell DVDs and Facebook buy and sell is highly used and free. I join as many buy and sell groups as possible and I am just about to write an advert when, I get banned from any group interaction of two weeks! BULLSHIT I think to myself and I open a different account and start again. I am planning on using it as a advertising platform so I send friend request blast to Google circles and registered users. I send friend requests to old followers on Facebook (people I remember or still have contact details too.) And anyone else that wanted to friend me, after three days I had about 1000 friends so I started a page and had 59 likes!! By now I have posted ads all over Buy and Sell sites nationwide but not had many people visit my site.
Then Facebook stopped letting me login, my account has now been locked and they asked for photo I.D that shows your date of birth (I am not even sure I put the right date on facebook, I always put the right year but fuck them!)
I have no photo I.D, I don’t drive and my passport expired years ago. So I follow the link for people with no photo I.D, I send them a bank statement and a tax letter addressed to me. Facebook do not accept that as I.D instead they want me to name friends from photographs. At the bottom of the page is a few examples of how fucking stupid Facebook are and how desperate they seem to be to stop me to sell DVD documentaries that criticize them on Facebook.
I ask a friend to post them using their profile and to my amazement I get literally hundreds of clicks in just a few minutes then my site goes down! My hosting company took it down and accuse me of unsolicited spamming! After an hour, an abusive blog posted on Steemit and two phone conversations my website is working! But nowhere near as busy.
Meanwhile I open yet another account this time I am more selective about the groups I join but once again I get stopped from posting on groups! I create ANOTHER account and slowly request to join big buy and sell groups, I get accepted to a few and I start posting. For some reason unlike when my friend posted I get hardly anybody on the site???? Are Facebook even manipulating buy and sell like the control freaks they are? My Facebook page still exist but I cannot add to it or remove it! MAN I FUCKING HATE FACEBOOK….Check me out on Instagram and watch this space for future rants! (I’m not even sure how long they will allow me on Instagram because I might have signed using the Facebook account that has been locked.)
