Seeing Light ~Second Life Blogs Blocked by Facebook~ Tips and Tricks


Note: I posted this blog right before I was let out of FB jail. It took me 8 days of filing reports and making a phone call to leave FB a message. This blog is to help you if you are in the same position.

Since I have been blocked this past week by FB, I have gotten good at sending reports. I have also learned that I am not the only one whos site is being blocked, I am one of many. Facebook is cracking down on website sharing to keep us safe from spam and unsavory fake news as well as being subjected to awful things. My blog is one of quite a few in the virtual world community that has been hit. Although it did start with people reporting mine maliciously. “GO ME!”

You can file a report via regular means by going to the “Help Menu” but I found out when I called them to look for a slightly different help menu. It’s one at the bottom of any page. I will guide you with pictures… (Something funny happened and I will get to that later). So go to the bottom of any page and click here..

menu at the bottom of all FB pages.

Then you will see this…

Click Visit Help Community

I was convinced the Help Community would not help me but it did in a roundabout way.

Click Ask a Question

Ask your question. They say to look for others questions and help first. But all questions and help did not help me. So I went farther….

Click My Question is New.

Since none of it in there helped me I had to click that my question was new. Since I went too fast to get all these steps, I got this window… HAHAHA! but not funny. I wasn’t amused.

I was writing down what to do and went to fast for them and they temporarily blocked me.

OK haha… so what? I am blocked already but yeah funny FB, real funny. So I hit the blue Close button and kept going to get all these steps for you. I was then given this special Facebook Blocks window that I have never seen before…. oh ok… Fill that out with your plight and website URL as well as your login email. Then click Send.

This is different than the other report box I found. I think this one means business. I was told on the answering message when I called them to look down to the bottom of the page for the help menu that I have shown you. So now without further ado… if you need it.. Here is FB’s phone number. You will have to listen to the whole automated thing and wait for them to tell you to leave a message. Do exactly what they say to do. Then it’s a waiting game. You can contact Facebook headquarters at 1-650-308-7300.

I have been blocked for over a week. Today Instagram let my website link out of blocking jail. So I think the light is at the end of the tunnel now. FB owns them.. I can only hope my site will be unblocked very soon now. I have done everything there is to do and all I can do is wait now. Please everyone be very wary about posting your blogs to FB. I suggest.. not spamming all the SL groups. Do not do that. Pick the largest group and post there and your timeline and leave it alone. You will be getting most everyone doing that anyway. Do not be spammy. FB is cracking down on SPAMMY.

Do not be spammy

    1. Thank you for including my post inside yours :). Maybe we can help change how reports are filed inside FB to make it more comprehensive and detailed to include more areas of detail in filing a report. There just are not enough categories and room for things like plagiarism or theft of credits due and unfair blocking and bannings. People on FB just do not know how to play nice.

    Thanks for the walk through.

    FB is getting into social media control. Their agenda is far Left Progressive. (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=facebook+bias&t=hi&ia=web) If you take your news and current events only from the mainstream news organizations you’ll miss what is going on. That leaves you vulnerable to FB algorithms targeting Right-wing, conservative, Christian, and whistle blower style language. Use those words or writing style and poof you are de-boosted, banned, or have your content removed.

    FB is more and more an anti-competitive advertising company with an agenda. You are more likely to have stepped on one of the FB tripwires blocking advertising without conforming to their idea of what is permissible. If you want to be ‘spammy’ and promote your products or services you’ll need to create a FB page for your ‘business’. Then they will be able to target you with their ads for advertising your business.

    All these agendas are creating blow-back. With the huge movement in #WalkAway and #Redpill political pressure is building. The move to breakup or control FB, Apple, Google/YouTube, Yahoo, etc.is building. (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=facebook+anti-trust&t=hi&ia=web)

    For users this means we need to consider the implications. These are private companies. Giving the government more control of anything private is always a bad idea. Anti-trust is about keeping the playing field level. Leftist-Socialist-Progressives want control of the companies and avoid discussing anti-trust except as a pressure tactic. Anti-trust is about having fair competition. So, understand which to support.

    The other advantage for us is the competitive to FB, Google/YouTube, and Apple startups. MeWe,com is a FB competitor that is rapidly growing by competing on free speech vs FB controlled speech. DuckDuckGo.com is a competing search engine targeting Google’s political censorship by including links to Left and Right wing articles. Vimeo is competing with YouTube. The list is growing.We can help it grow by using the competitive startups along with the big kids FB, Google, and Apple.
