Facebook - Deleted posts containing just the name of networking competitor!
Re Pinterest - Complaint
OMAHA, NEBRASKA -- Recently, there has been a lot of posting about a seriously shameful situation in Bulgaria regarding their routine torture and killings of stray animals. The posts have centered around a courageous German Shepherd dog, Borko, that was beaten repeatedly and paralyzed, and the threats to the kind Doctor that has "adopted" Borko and other strays.
Anyway, a recent update asked for continued donations and sharing of the story. So, I posted that I put it on Pinterest to reach more people about the rescue effort, and the post disappeared. Since I was also watching t. v., I assumed that I had forgotten to save the post. I reposted the info, and it immediately disappeared again, while I was watching! This made me angry, so I posted and asked Facebook if they were so insecure that they couldn't even handle the MENTION of another social networking site. And, of course, that disappeared!
After a few more jabs at FB, I gave up and moved on... But, it still burns my, er, makes me angry to think that 1) they are monitoring all our posts, so there is no privacy, and 2) they can delete anything they want. Oh, now that I think of it, 3) they have previously refused to delete offensive posts which had graphic sexual content and cursing!
Can anything be done about their abusing the rights of their customers?
