Account Suspended for Content I NEVER Posted!

I’m a business & legal professional who woke up while a business trip to my account being suspended due to improper content. I NEVER share anything inappropriate online or in real life. My life is dedicated to share informational, educational, spiritual, and motivational content. Many of my clients and friends are connected to me through this platform. I can’t get help! I’m completely shut out the system for something I never posted and never will! I don’t even know what the post was! However, there is no help or guidance. You can only appeal something that I have no clue as to what it is. People share horrible, sexual, racist, demeaning, belittling, predatory content all the time and even make fake pages to steal from people, but I never have and never will do any of these things yet my account is suspended. My life is dedicated to helping people protect their intellectual property, build businesses, and and be self sufficient. I share my Christian journey and life as a single-parent. I’m a positive African-American woman with international education and experiences. I am appalled at what I’m going through with facebook and there is no recourse for me. I can’t even access the Help Center! This impacts so many areas of my life and business for reasons I have no knowledge of. Do better facebook!!!! SMH

Updates destroy make this app unusable pretty often.

Update: This last update just fixed the issues the previous updates caused. These updates pushed out by FB keep making managing our private groups or group pages impossible to use the search function or use other features as an administrator. I manage a few private group pages as an administrator and I need to have the ability to investigate questionable content produced by any member in these groups. When I find posts by a members that breaks FB guidelines and group set rules I need to be able to investigate these members’ history, remove posts, remove profiles or edit content. Almost every update screws things up with the exception of one good update around once a year! Very frustrating! I need all of the sites functions (especially the search) to work to be able to insure that the page stays within FB guidelines and group page rules already set. I know you have no intention in doing this, but please make sure updates work before pushing them out. FB is just too busy with their effort in the social war between political parties that they just can’t let us normal people use the app as a legit town square to join people with the same interests, (ie. car people and our cars). This is an Update: 11May2022 from the previous of 7May2022.

Failure

Facebook’s ever changing “community standards” leave the doors open to violations, account suspensions and even account removals based on posts that are often one, two or as much a seven years old. Like writing a ticket for running a stop sign to someone years before the sign was even installed. Not to mention, the so called “community standards” are interpreted by software and not actual humans, so the level of accuracy is ridiculously high. Certain words now trigger censors, that are common descriptors in different settings, but result in suspensions or post removals. The term “fatty” in the fishing community is a compliment to describe a great looking fish someone has caught, but it now results in posts being flagged on fishing community pages. The term “grammar nazi” to describe those who have nothing to contribute to a post but to correct someone’s grammar, spelling and punctuation….banned. And if someone doesn’t like how a discussion is going, all they have to do is report you as a “bully” or “harassment” and you get flagged in the system….doesn’t matter the content of your posts.
“Private Groups” are subject to the same rules, despite having agreements with members regarding the kind of content that will be posted and that is acceptable. And “public groups” can no longer edit out who they want to join as FB allows everyone to join and SPAM the groups.
And don’t bother trying to use Marketplace on an iPad…it crashes EVERY TIME.
