What is the difference between getting a speeding ticket and going to "Facebook Jail?" Facebook headquarters is in Santa Clara County, and if you receive a speeding ticket, you can plead guilty, make a written declaration, or go to court. Only after you plead guilty or are found guilty will you be punished, and for an infraction, the government will remove the offense from your record in three years.
Facebook is an amoral company that monetizes the behaviors of its subscribers. In an attempt to change the company's perception and hold off needed government regulations, Facebook is trying to behave morally through the use of algorithms. Certain words immediately put you in "FB jail" and suspend your ability to comment without regard to the context. Supposedly, the decision is reviewed by humans, but that is highly problematic since they freely admit that they don't have enough staff. Appeals are heard on a random basis.
Let me provide an example of the Facebook policy and why it doesn't work. Sc__m is on the list of unapproved words. For those who don't know, the term refers to that layer of dirt surrounding the bathtub after taking a bath. It also refers to a low, despicable person. So, if a meme contains a picture of Adolph Hitler with the caption, "We need more ovens." and you respond that "Hitler is sc__m," the algorithm would immediately put you in "Facebook Jail" for hate speech. Also, there is no timeline for "convictions," so an offense committed two years ago would make the time in "FB jail" longer. If you receive a traffic ticket, you can't opt-out of the process--you will either be found innocent or guilty. Since Facebook is a private company, the opt-out option is available, and the Liker alternative is gaining popularity.
So I am back in Facebook jail for 30 days again after just getting out on Friday. Every time I have gone to fb jail it was over something that was appropriate to post or I wouldn’t of post. Can’t reach anyone to help me and get my account back open. I’m thinking about filing legal actions against them. I have seen way worst that people post and comment on there and they don’t go to fb jail.
It happened twice. Where I thought I can trust the ads on Facebook. Without knowing that their vendors were a fraud. Facebook should do diligence on every ad they allow on their platform. As a result, the consumer suffers. I would highly recommend not to take buy anything on Facebook. It's a trap. Here is one of many incidents had happened and similar to my situation and I thought it was explained in detail... Started a dispute and No solution from PayPal.
I never received the item. When I checked the Tracking which was false. There is No confirmed Signature and No Confirmation of delivery. No Courier Contact or Name to follow up on. I asked PayPal did you ask for delivery confirmation? No reply! In Australia nowadays with so much fraud the couriers take a image of the front of your house to Prove Delivery if out or ascertain a Signature if in attendance Did PayPal ask for this? This seller cannot give proof of Delivery or any details such as Airline or Courier (DHL Etc).I am Not Happy as I Did Not Get The Item and I have been ripped off. This is Fraud as there exists no proof of Delivery. I tried to appeal PayPal's decision but they shut the case. All I can say is have noting to do with this Company and be aware they change their selling name. DO NOT BUY OFF FACBOOK. Regards.
The Social Media Platform is a self centered, false fact checking, censoring, dictatorship in my view. They fact check everything including their users views even though they have lied to me saying they do not have fact checkers. So far I have blocked over 500 who have access to my account even though it is private. They sensor for using words like idiot, german, calling someone a fool and a lot more everyday language like this, even going as far as banning users for this. In my opinion they are not a social media site but a controlling dictatorship that has taken away our freedom of speech. They ask what's on your mind on your fb page and then when you write something they say it's hate speech or it goes against their community standards, but they let groups like antifa to say what they want and dont sensor them.
My birth year was accidentally updated to 2016 (I'm obviously NOT 4) and within seconds my account was disabled before I could even try to correct the mistake. That was 3 months ago and despite submitting my ID numerous times, sending complaints thru BBB, and the Attorney General of CA Facebook has done nothing to help. I've lost an account I have had for nearly 8 yrs but more importantly I have lost connection to family and friends during a pandemic when Facebook is pretty much the only way I can see them nowadays. I've missed all the photos, and videos of precious moments. I've missed reaching out when a friend is in need. I've missed sharing important things in my life with them. It's a terribly hurtful thing to do when someone has gone above and beyond to try to help fix this small error.
This faceless company is run by people with double standards. I see porn on it, violence but they quick to block when you speak the truth. I will keep on posting what I want FB. You can block me me and I will keep on opening new accounts.
Facebook protect scammers. Let them post fraudulent claims and info in order to scam or hack innocent ppl out of their money or merchandise. You see postings hacker links popping up everywhere.. The scammers messenger group owners of the group owner click on the link that the scammer send them. The scammer then take over the groups and post all types of scams but the second. I post info from the news letting the public know how the scammers and hackers work and I give them info on how to protect themselves. I get reported most likely by the scammer and my post or comment be deleted but they keep the post I report on them and comments if the scammers trying to scam people and they never remove their post or links. You can't get on Facebook without seeing scammers posting everywhere. Facebook needs to hire real people who take scammers and hackers very serious.
I have had enough. I posted a concerned mothers post about seeing a suspicious looking vehicle and what to look for, specifically a windowless van, no door handles, only key locks doors, known to have been used in human trafficking, It was completely blurred blocked with a censorship post that calling the police could be dangerous to harm people. They have censored live videos of people, doctors, scientist giving their opinions. Censored professional news media and almost everything by the president of the United States. I have gone to other sites of hate, violence left leaning, reported Antifa hate speech about targeting conservatives, no censorship.
Recently learned at the Senate hearings that Facebook uses a tool to track us after we leave their app with all of our personal information, family, activities including but not limited to our keystroke on our computers and phones. Enough! This is wrong and illegal on so many levels. Their donations shows that they are trying to influence the elections among other agendas.
I think my account was hacked and was disabled without any reason as to why I no longer have an account. I have tried to contact FB through forms, but cannot get past uploading a photo, they just say this account is not up for review. I am looking at what possible legal action I can take or even if anyone else is going through the same issues. Anyone else out there is having same issues? Facebook does not give any options on customer service.
My Facebook account was hacked and profile information was hacked. Trying to recapture the account is harder than the hacker hacking it!! The list of documents to prove your identity is ridiculous - drivers license, birth certificate, credit cards, and more!!! I Uploaded several documents with minimum required information several times to prove my identity. No response. No help to recapture my account. Hacker not only changed password but changed ALL contact information.
So I included contact information in my emails for help. Still no response. So ended up opening new account but have lost All posts and information saved on my Facebook page. No help at all in any way - easier for a hacker to hack your account than for you to recapture your account. They need a phone number to call and hire at least 1 Customer Service Representative!!!
