Facebook Pulled our Page for Viral Content without Warning or Explanation!
-We had a Vegetable Recall Alert that went Viral on Facebook – I mean viral with over 40k shares and over 1.5 million views in the course of 28 hours. Link to Post that went viral
The last update was about Bell and donation for each fan they received – with a direct link to Bell Canada’s fan page: This facebook update was only seen by 2000 people when the entire page vanished.
We have not received any communication from facebook. - No warning – no email – No explanation!
We stay up to date on rules: We never say “share or like” and always use a third party application to host facebook contests.
I don’t remember the last time we got a warning – perhaps two years ago about a problem with an image used !
When this post went Viral – we received 4 Private messages to stop notifications from fans - and we responded to please Unlike the page. As any page owner can NOT Remove Fans . Perhaps to many people complained – and Facebook just deleted the page?
We’ve had posts go viral before – but this one seemed to create chaos on our servers – so I’m guessing it’s the best viral post in a long time.
Perhaps Lack of CFS spending money on ad dollars?
I’ve tried paying for ads but felt it wasn’t worth it - I think we only spent $250 ( We’ve been on Facebook since 2009) until January 28 2014 – at 5pm MST when the page simply vanished without warning or Explanation
Perhaps We have upset Facebook because of Growth of this viral post! – We gained 734 fans in the course of 28 hours ( Crazy Growth)
Or Perhaps because of viral content – with complaints – we were not even reviewed due to Canadian Free Stuff not being a huge spender of ads
We obviously have attempted to contact Facebook several ways – and NO RESPONSE
Facebook has Executed us without a Trial – or a Charge for that matter
If Facebook can unilaterally pull your Facebook page after years of hard work without any details, what is the value of a Facebook page for business?
