Blocked By Facebook

I've been hearing things being blocked by Twitter and Facebook today. I noticed for some time that all my pictures fron Fineartamerica were on Facebook, for anyone to see my work then it vanished. I thought it was strange. Does anyone here experienced anything like this?

so far only political stuff is being banned. and unless you belong to that i don't see why you would too. i don't go out of my way to say things are for sale. and if something is flagged, i think under help, you can see the list of things that were and tell them its ok. then they don't bug you, or they haven't with me. but thus far the only blocks are for the election.

Mike it sounds so silly when i used the word "Block" and is no way political. I'm just curious why its not there. All my work is gone on Facebook and you said something is flagged. So your suggesting I should look under Help. I'm not trying to sell my work but to show what I have.

there is something under help and support inbox. and if there is something that said violation you can click that and then say its not spam or whatever it says and often it will go back. but if its totally blank, you should report that to help. the robot sometimes picks something up that it shouldn't have.

are you looking at the new facebook or the old? maybe the code is messed up?

Don't know if you posted to your personal page or your business page. The business pages changes to a suite which may have changed things around. If it was your personal page, it's possible FB is trying to get people to have business pages who have things for sale. I haven't had any issues that I've seen. I don't post but maybe 1-3 times a day on my business page and then even less on my personal page (usually I just share some of my bus pg posts).

 

I wonder if this has to do with the FB Group/Twitter algorithm on what to show? In the past, I've noticed that what I just posted doesn't always show immediately. Sometimes I have to page through numerous posts to find what I just posted.

What exactly do you mean by gone? Did you post links to the FAA pages for the art?

Hard to tell what happened.

It is against their TOS to promote things on a private FB profile. They want us to use our business page (where you will most likely have a very low reach until you pay for Ads).

Most artists I know are doing fine promoting on their private profile. Some had their account closed by FB. Guess it depends...

 

Months ago, I opened my FB business page https://www.facebook.com/CarlinWatercolorPaintings/ to find that FB had deleted every image I uploaded from my private label artist website https://carlinartwatercolor.com/

but all my Etsy & pixels artist website posts remained https://carlin-blahnik.pixels.com/

I now only use my pixels website for promotion without any trouble.

Matthias, Now I understand why they want us to use our business page until you pay for ads. But when you post new Art on your homepage I guess it's called, use to be on the homepage for all to see, but it's not there. Must be some speculation on their part not wanting to show as if you have no free speech.

Carlin, don't sound right when FB deleted all your images. Something is wrong here.

Facebook is down for a lot of people. I only get a white screen and cannot log in. seems to be a widespread problem. you may not really be blocked.
