Facebook has jailed me for saying thank you!
Yep! For saying thank you. Here’s what happened…
If the person/business is already on my friend list, Facebook knows how to respond. But for the people who are fans but not personal friends, Facebook has gone wonky.
Recently, I got a rush of new likes on my pages So I sent thank you’s to all the new people who liked my pages.
Facebook decided I was spam and said I could not send out any more notes to people.
I wasn’t spamming. These were personalized notes.
Today it blocked my friend requests for seven days. Bizarre! I’ve only initiated a handful over the last two months.
I sent Facebook a note about the thank you’s and they have not responded.
I’m not sure if it’s worth sending them another note about the friend requests, but I’m going to give it a shot.
I shouldn’t be penalized for tying to keep my private page private. I shouldn’t be penalized for thanking people who like my pages.
Not cool Facebook. Where I come from, good manners is also good social media.
