Important info regarding the animal rescue page suspensions.
post animals that need help here, without getting suspended, https://www.facebook.com/groups/194550167276394/
Facebooks spam filtering system is affecting the everyday user. Bans for adding too many friends. Bans for sharing info with like minded individuals. Political speech is being hindered. Animal rescue groups are unable to share information to provide pets with homes. Military groups are unable to share information. Christian and other religious groups are unable to use Facebook to worship…
as I’ve said all along IT AIN’T THAT FACEBOOK IS TARGETING ANIMAL GROUPS …
It says in this article that developers can get reversed but it does NOT say where/how… have to investigate this… and get back with you.
Someone, who has a friend that works at Facebook, just posted the following information about the situation with the account suspensions: Apparently, Facebook has a team working to try to fix this problem. She said that people who have had their pages suspended should send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org and your suspension will be put on a “priority list.” She also asks that this info be shared with other animal advocacy groups.
perhaps this explains why both Yahoo and Facebook were acting wonky… they are doing an experiment this week…
If you have been disabled on facebook due to “spam and irrelevant” postings for 15 days, I suggest that you write to email@example.com. Here is what I wrote to them: (I also called and wrote to Facebook at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com)… you can also tweet facebook, @facebook and tell them to stop keeping us from saving animals lives NOW, send them a link to this blog post and/or Bob Etier article or the examiner article, pls share this with your fb friends/twitter friends, etc thanks !!!I am writing because numerous animal rescue / animal lovers and groups such as myself have been accused erroneously by facebook for posting spam and “irrelevant” content and disabled for 15 days… we have been posting and cross posting about animals that need rescuing from shelters and owners… trying to find new homes for these animals. This Is NOT SPAM NOR IRRELEVANT !!!! These postings have helped unite pets with owners and obtained NEW homes for pets and SAVED ANIMALS LIVES !!! l. I am NOT posting spam 2. certainly NOT posting irrelevant content Yesterday, I asked folks to please educate the media about pit bulls due to another story where a dog was shot because a pregnant woman fell off of a ladder and her innocent dog was blamed for her death. I wanted to let everyone know about a new media project. And so I posted to numerous animal groups sites and because of that I got disabled. therefore, please re-evaluate what you are doing because INNOCENT LIVES ARE BEING LOST due to your spam policies. There must be some way for you to figure out the difference between garbage and legitimate postings. Thank you.
someone created a Facebook page about not suspending our animal rescue accounts… do not know that Mark Zuckerberg and his team are reading this page but hopefully people are being professional and factual. Name calling and threats are counter productive. Also taking this personally. I do not think the facebook spam policy is personal against animal groups. And did I find it insulting, yes. And it is not going to help for me to fly off the handle and attack every time I perceive I am being attacked. How well do you hear someone when they are cursing you, calling you names, and threatening you???? Save your outrage for the matters that count, the animal abusers, the unjust legal system, etc. I could be wrong but please GROW UP and speak courteously. Bees, honey or vinegar.

List of Banned Groups (also now a Facebook page) here is what it says:
Here is what I found so far. If you know of others please add to the comments. PLEASE PLEASE If you get a free minute go to their pages and post animals in need when you have time. Please everyone do not mass post any one link at one time as this seems to be an issue. But if the almost 3000 of us goes to each page and posts we can still get the word out to those in need.
