This blog was an impulse having a need to share some disgruntled thoughts with people outside of a Facebook page.
Earlier this week I tried to pop this good-will image on to a selection of friendly Facebook groups. Via my laptop. It was pretty obvious I was offering this humble publication as a forum to help people get some work or help keep their businesses from folding. It was not going to cost anyone anything. I was prepared to work the hours to put in classified adverts, daily, and leave it there for a month.
Great idea but the God-like Facebook hit me with this image ... What?
No human reply just an algorithm interpreting what seems to be the way Mark Zuckerberg runs his business. Zuckerberg is happy to take millions (billions) from Donald Trump and is considered powerful enough to even get Trump back in (Heaven forbid). It doesn't get more ridiculous or repetitive than a Trump. Yet I can't run an advert through a number of Facebook groups to help my new magazine and to help people surrounding it in this torrid time.
The irony of this is that as soon as I received the spam note I went to my phone and sent it to everyone without a hitch.
I guess if I get the time to get Instagram up and running, also a Zuckerberg heavyweight, then I'll get the same result?
I bet if I was to spend money I don't have then everything would be OK.
Do you have these sorts of problems or can you help me overcome them?
