Why Facebook Gets a 3 instead of a 5

Facebook is wonderful for reconnecting with old friends, and staying in touch with friends and family! It’s also wonderful for making new friends who have similar interests and beliefs. However, the censorship, the lack of human involvement in determining what is, and is not appropriate as far as Facebook’s community standards is extremely flawed! People have posts removed, because a single word flags computer to mark the content as inappropriate, when, in fact, the full contentis very appropriate, and even supportive of those who may be dealing with particular hardships. You can’t say the word suicide on Facebook, without risking getting banned or putting in Facebook jail for 48 hours, when, in fact, you are posting some thing that is meant to be supportive and helpful to those who are suffering and conflicted. This is wrong! And it should be fixed, because it’s becoming so out of hand, that people don’t try to help other people anymore. They don’t want to deal with the algorithms hassling them, When they’re just trying to help. This is just one example of the problems with Facebook; it’s an ability to properly determine what, and doesn’t go against community standards, which is undermining, free speech, and promoting censorship!

You can’t say your opinion

this is supposed to be a "Open opinion" no judgment for conversations or debates or just a fun app to share memes and stay connected with friends and family however you use it might I say may cause you to be "Blocked" for either several hours the first couple times of being "Warned" by Facebook if they take down one of your posts for whatever reason they pick (For no apparent reason) and you will start off with a few hours to a few days or even MONTHS and I believe some get their account deleted completely because of Facebook disagreements on peoples posts and you may think "Hm I don't post nothing bad" or
"That won't happen to me" trust me there will be one post and you will share it and Facebooks very hypocritical self will take down your posts and even block you account meanwhile for Facebook being so "Wanna keep Facebook a safe place" | see a lot of disturbing and down right horrible things online (people dying, accidents, cartel videos of people getting chopped up, Drugs, fights) and just way more than you can ever think you'd see on a app that apparently wants to keep everyone safe why not worry about the posts that you should be worrying about I have been blocked for quite a while now and soon will be "Unblocked" for weeks finally and am now writing a review before deleting the app to warn people of facebooks ridiculous choices and rules on the app.

I keep getting restrictions for obvious jokes

I’m tired of the weird community standards. Folks can talk about how much they want to murder our former President and that’s perfectly fine because it’s part of FB’s political views, but I made a joke about a video that shows you how to get out of ropes if you’re ever kidnapped, saying that no kidnapper will ever tie you up like that and that no one is going to commit a felony without doing it right. Now I have a 30 day suspension because my comment went against community standards because apparently pointing out that no kidnapper will ever tie someone up like that is a poor reflection of humanity….but making realistic threats against former president Trump somehow isn’t nor is a guy telling me I deserve to be raped apparently. I hate this app. I have friends that live in China and this is the sort of censorship that they tell me they live with on a daily basis. I hope Elon Musk does buy Twitter. I’ll actually get an account and ditch FB. I’m tired of getting in trouble for doing nothing wrong or making an obvious joke. I flagged a guy that told me I deserved to be raped and FB sent me a message saying his comment didn’t violate community standards. I screen shot all of it and sent it to Fb…with no response. No worries. Our state paper has feelings about it, and I’m certain they’ll get a response from someone at FB. I hope national news picks it up because they deserve to be exposed for the trash they are.
