Does this face look inappropriate? Look at that sweet fur baby? The book ain’t so bad either, but that face! So…this is a pup of one a member of my Advanced Reader Copy group. She sent me this photo of her sweet baby with her ARC copy of Frothy Foul Play.
It’s an adorable face and NOT spam. So when I posted it to my Facebook page, a few of my readers had went to share it, only to be blocked by Facebook citing it was spam and inappropriate.
I’m hearing more and more of this lately. In fact, in order to have a business page, like my author page on Facebook, you have to have a personal page. Now, I do have a personal page, but I don’t use it for my business. It’s there for my family and good friends, but technically it’s there for my mom! No joke. She gets on there to see what our family is up to, meaning my cousins, aunts, uncles etc.
So she uses it more than me. If I could only have the author page, I would, but here’s the gig. I watch Big Brother with my readers on a private group page. I had commented on how the girls go in the game strong, then meets the boys and loses their minds only to get defeated and sent home. WOW! Facebook shut that down fast!
So fast they put a block on my personal page and said I was a bully. It took three months for them to remove the restriction from my personal page and from then on out I knew I had to make a plan.
My plan was to get a new website, get a blog, continue to grow my newsletter Tuesday Coffee Chat with Tonya and move not only all my news and giveaways there, but to get as many of my readers off Facebook and follow me here. Facebook is so unreliable that I have a deep set fear they will just shut me down and with no one to ask for help, like they did last time, and never let me back on where I can communicate with y’all.
I do not want to wake up one day with Facebook deciding that my page is inappropriate or they just see fit that something is spam, like the cute photos above, and take down the page. Then what will we do?
I know! Follow me here! How do you do that? See that tab on the top of the page that says SUBSCRIBE? Yep. Click on that and subscribe to the CHIT CHAT, which is this blog, where I post a few times a week and host giveaways. You’ll get an email every time I post and you can comment, which I will chit chat back with you.
Also, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter where I have different content on there! I’m so happy that I had Wax design me a new website so we can gather here without worrying about whether or not we lose contact!
