Taking Matters into our Own Hands…
Since waiting around for Facebook to get with the program is frustrating at best, here is a possible CREATIVE SOLUTION for overcoming the Facebook ban/suspension: Attn: all Patrick movement admins and other animal advocacy rescue groups, Amelia Latham was just telling me that if you will create “group” pages, all these community pages should create them then we can post to group pages, it seems without restriction.
And if you are wondering how to do it as was I, I first went to the Animal Book facebook group page and saw on the left something that said Create Group. I clicked on that and voila. I was able to create a group page. Now I noticed that there it is on my page to be able to create a group.
How about it? and if you are a poster and are not banned, can u please let others know about this, pls share, thanks!
Facebook has received a lot of great publicity due to animal rescue efforts that have saved the lives of many animals
Patrick (featured prominently on News 12 in New Jersey facebook page)
The story of Patrick, the pit bull who was found abandoned and near death in a trash dumpster at a Newark apartment building, has garnered worldwide attention, and donations have been pouring in from those wanting to contribute to his care. Patrick visited the News 12 New Jersey Studio to be a guest on “The Pet Stop.
a dog in Connecticut
Rocky the military dog who just got saved due to the efforts of dedicated animal rescuers
just to name a few of the lives that have been saved. There have been dogs who have been rescued from kill shelters, dogs who have been adopted, cats who have been rescued from abusers, and many other animals lives who have been saved thanks to animal rescuers and just plain people who care about animals, who are on Facebook and network with each other to get the animals to safety, sign petitions, are working to change laws about animal abuse (stricter and enforced), end breed discrimination and stop puppy mills.
So why does it seem that Facebook is in no hurry to fix the snafu that is hindering the efforts of animal rescue groups this week…which is putting many animals lives in danger EVERY DAY?
Animal rescuers are not the only ones affected by the glitch but animals lives ARE constantly on the line. Rescuers are concerned that each and every hour of every day animals that could be saved are dying because the rescuers cannot post and crosspost to the groups nor make comments to the groups to get the word out.
Networking has slowed down considerably and many feel frustrated and wonder how long “being in jail” on Facebook will continue. There is word that Facebook is aware and working on the problem but so far, there is no indication as to when this is going to be resolved.
Like too many corporations and big companies these days, fantastic Customer service, par EXCELLENCE, does not seem to be a priority for Facebook. There is little communication, no way to reach an actual person and all people get back are automatic form emails which is insufficient feedback. No public statements have been made by Mark Zuckerberg or his minions. No media have discussed this topic except for bloggers like myself.
People are seeking creative solutions including finding another social media platform that WILL respond to the needs of their customers, even non-paying ones.
People all over the world are generally FED UP and tired of governments, politicians and big corporation lack of response to their needs.
And then there are stories such as this that highlight how welcome, rare and indeed miraculous it is nowadays when a company DOES care about their customers, DOES provide Excellent customer service, and as a result obtains favorable PR and new customers through their own efforts. I’ve never even heard of this company nor do I even eat steak, but I would DEFINITELY go to their restaurant because of this.
So we need to come up with more CREATIVE SOLUTIONS for overcoming the Facebook suspension. But please share this one:
