This is why I don't actively use it very much, seems their algorithms are ruthless now for anything that can be taken out of context. Is there anything you can do about it?

I've not really had an issue with Facebook though I did write a review on a British version/website of a US-owned company in which I used the British phrase "back of a fag packet" - it got flagged for homophobia/offensive language... apparently neither really obvious context nor the possibility that words can mean different things mattered to them.

So far just two issues with posts and I was temporarily blocked for a short time. Both due to B***** idiots putting out patently false stuff and me ending up irritated that they couldn't see it.

Since Trump got banned they have been a lot more negative about language and a lot of their people seem to not have English as their primary language when dealing with these. This may at least explain why Facebook is so bad at this sort of thing.

I am also fascinated by all the influencers and "Shadow Banning" - Every company insists they do not do it but it is 100% a thing. They post something the company does not like and suddenly they drop off search terms and recommended and even off peoples activity feed when they follow them.
I can defiantly testify to that fact wondering "Why I not see this persons latest youtube videos" And noticed several videos they have posted.


Often people just are not told why which I think is crazy. OK, I was banned, or I am shadow banned - Let me know why so I can avoid it please. NOPE!
One person on youtube was making an animated icon for twitch and submitting it and just getting a rejection message. Guessing on names, editing the gif trying to follow the doc guidelines thinking he was doing as required. He gave up but the next day as he was streaming he gets a notification he was getting banned for 1 day and again no real reason why, he had to guess it was all the tries of a gif icon that was not approved.
He still does not know what exactly triggered the ban and what was actually wrong in the first place. He even pointed out other similar gif's from other streamers both in name and image that were approved.




It is OK to have rules and regulations but if you feel someone is in breach of that you should not just ban them or nerf their ratings, visualisation and so on and not tell them why. For many this is their livelihood so it is crazy they can just take action and it may not even be the company but one member of moderation who considers something and hits the buttons to effect a persons account.


I saw one person complain that a picture of them eating some fancy sushi food had the post remove for "Bullying!" so 1. Someone reported it as bullying and 2. It was acted on under that. It stupid!

Sadly FB is a far left platform now, if you say anythng outside the narrative or have a personality other than what they want you to say or do you get shut down, the internet is lost.

Owned by the rich. Far right people complain bitterly when anything is removed, no matter how stupid. Reasonable stuff is not removed, just the excessive propaganda.

I left it a couple of years ago, best thing I ever did.
The problem is though a lot of smaller businesses and events think that ONLY posting on facebook is an acceptable way of getting information out, or they think it's an acceptable alternative to a website.

I called a friend in a food group Little Miss Piggy and got a 30 day ban, in other groups i post pictures of my raw feeds for sale and get the posts removed, they call it animal parts, i know 100s of people who have received bans for calling each other names in banter groups, you cannot have a personality anymore, they do not understand banter for a start, it never used to be like this, its getting worse by the day.

This is just the start of full control by big tech and anyone who supports them financially.

That is not political bias as much as thinking you are bullying someone because of their weight. That is an issue backed by the Tories in Britain and Republicans in the US.

FB is now a platform for snowflakes that is over moderated by liberal moderators with zero backbone, free speech is over, its all one sided much like other platforms on the internet, Reddit is a good example.
