How to land in Facebook jail
Book Friends! I am in Facebook jail or what I like to call purgatory. Why? I'm glad you asked. Let me give you some context. I was reading this book All To Me by Ashantay Keys. A character in the book was so disgusting I made a comment that I wanted to throat punch him. Well, the good people at Facebook deemed that to a be a threat to a person and banned me for 30 days. It was an innocent comment about a CHARACTER!
I get it right, they didn't know it was about a character because a human did not review the post. However, it's very upsetting to be blocked from community. Yes, my book group is my community and I interact with them everyday. Not being able to post sucks! Not being able to connect sucks! So let me spare you some angst and anger with these tips.
1. Do not make any type of comment that could be construed as violent or bullying.
2. Do not use naughty words like F$uck and etc. that's deemed sexually suggestive content.
3. Do not use hate speech.
I know you're wondering, well damn what can I post? In theory you can post what you want but just know if it goes against their content standards they will come after you and you receive numerous violations they can shut down your account or your group. I didn't even know I had "multiple" violations for seemingly simple meme posts or comments hence the 30 day moratorium. So book friends watch your words and the things that you post because big brother is watching!

I am an avid book reader and lover of all things romance. I love books that make me feel, have bad ass female leads, assassins and of course alpha males. Don't forget to support your local library.
