Almighty Facebook Strikes Again – Investors And Business Owners Beware!

Facebook Scam

This week I found myself a victim of Facebooks dictatorship abuse. They took it upon themselves to unilaterally and without notice delete my access to my Facebook Marketplace Account only starting that “I violated one of their rules or terms of use”. Then the provided me a list of 23 things that “might” be the reason they unilaterally shut down my small business. The business I need to support my family.

The only thing left on the page was a sentence that said, paraphrasing just a little. “If you think we have done this is error click this tiny review button and we will review it and get back to you within 24 hours”. Review what? They didn’t even give me a clue what they were talking about or give me the option to say anything or ask any questions. They next day they said I violated one of their rules or terms of use and my account would not be reinstated. Again, no reason was given, no option to make a correction was given. The Almighty Facebook has spoken, your business is shut down, there is Nothing you can do about it, there is no one at Facebook you can call, or message, or write to.  They may as well of said Off With Your Head!

Facebook rapes and molests us stealing our information and data. Then they pimp us out selling us to the highest bidder. Then when they see us down they come and kick us for good measure. Is there something wrong with your account? They hell with you they say. We shut down your account for no reason, the hell with you. We ran you out of business? Maybe you didn’t hear me; I said the hell with you!

I have been a licensed real estate broker for more than 30 years. All I did in my Facebook Marketplace account is advertise real estate for sale for more than 12 years, nothing else! I can’t imagine what Facebook Commandment I broke to justify them destroying my business. And I will never know because they will never tell me.

Hey Facebook! Why don’t you set your God complex aside? Howsabout, if a rule is violated you send notice of what rule is violated and give your user a chance to fix it before you shut them down!? What the hell is this, Russia? 

Facebook Stockholders are you listening?

I know this isn’t a ton of money in the grand scheme of things but without a doubt I am surely not the only business owner to ban Facebook advertising because they are tired of Facebooks abuse. Seeing the writing on the wall smart investors have already dumped their Facebook Stock. If you still own stock in the company consider selling before the carnage escalates.

I was spending a $1,000 a month, or $12,000 a year, on Facebook advertising for my real estate company. Now, and for the rest of my life, for all of my businesses, I will spend Zero dollars on Facebook advertising. Their system was very confusing to use and never produced very well without spending a ton of money on it.

If Facebook believes they can continue to abuse their customers because they think they are two big to fail they clearly have another thing coming. Mark Suckaberge (Zuckerberg) and his team have already lost control of the company and they are grasping at straws trying to figure out something to get back on track. I would suggest that it is too late. It is time for Facebook to step aside so other companies can provide transparent, fair service to its users and its customers. Farewell Facebook – RIP.
