Facebook Issues Part Deux

Standard

As many of my friends know, I have been having some problems with my Facebook account. No small thing, considering that it has become my main mode of communication with certain friends.

Well, I recently had a problem logging into my wordpress account. I found their support page, sent a quick e-mail detailing my problem and got the generic “we’ll get back to you.” Imagine my surprise when they DID get back to me and lo and behold, here I am able to log in?

Now, compare that to the non-existent Facebook help section:

– Difficult to access

– Offers no working solutions

– Leads to posted questions rather than options for contacting them with a problem. Talk about customer non-service!

– Has absolutely NO ACTUAL customer support/service (in my experience)

– Doesn’t even have the courtesy to let you know that they’re looking into the issue!?!?!

Anyway, I WILL say this: I’d reached a point of feeling like Facebook is my only connection to my friends but these last couple of weeks have led me to consider making some serious changes. I have decided to deactivate my Facebook account for a while (not yet sure how long) and try to ACTUALLY keep in touch with people rather than randomly post stuff.

Thank you Facebook for challenging me to live without you. I accept the challenge.

Wish me luck everyone!

I decided to stop watching life pass by and join in instead. This year is all about saying "yes" to life, opportunity and ideas thus this blog. Like many people, I've wanted to start a blog, and like many people I chickened out. In fact, this is my second serious attempt. Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. Feel free to leave all sorts of comments, any time and I promise to do my best to reply. Feel free to compliment, complain, criticize, communicate...whatever floats your boat. See you soon :-)

  1. Reports like these are some of the reasons I never joined Facebook, though your observations are much more politely stated than some other complaints I’ve read. The “Facebook Team” is reportedly very inconsistent and have practiced censorship in an arbitrary and capricious manner. It seems strange how they market themselves so aggressively and then manage to turn off their customers after they’ve joined.

  2. Haha, yeah I’m trying to exercise diplomacy so thanks for the compliment πŸ™‚

    About Facebook and its issues, I DO think it’s weird how aggressively they advertise and yet they have seriously, the WORST customer service I’ve ever seen. They’re worse than old Sprint!!! When a company is worse that old Sprint, they’re really bad. Very interesting business model they seem to be following.

    I can’t believe you never signed up for Facebook. I’m actually a little jealous! It’s been a lifesaver for me though since I’ve friends and family across several continents. However, my problems with FB were so severe that I have started systematically cutting down my friends list and I’m not beyond deactivating or deleting. Basically, their incompetence was good for me because it forced me to re-evaluate my addiction to FB. I’m working on it though, so no worries πŸ™‚

  3. There were a couple of other concerns i had which have caused me to at least postpone joining Facebook. In addition to the censorship issues i read yet another brief post about spying by Facebook in an article published on the blog of Feminists For Free Expression If you’ve browsed through most of my blog you are probably beginning to understand how if i joined i might either get myself in some trouble or at least deliberately acquire some really embarrassing fame modeling panties. I also heard they might either start charging for accounts or load them up with spam. Do you think any of that is true?

  4. Yeah, that would make me postpone it. Censorship? On Facebook? That’s laughable! I’ve seen people show genitalia. Yeah, I’m serious. I did a search of a friend and all these other people came up and several looked like it was all about porn.

    Speaking of your blog, there was something I didn’t get. What’s with deal with modeling and panties? Is it a joke? Are you a model? Someone was actually giving you smack about it but I didn’t know what they were talking about. I’m having trouble navigating your blog. Please help??? πŸ™‚

    • It may be laughable, but it sound like, according to Marge, it happened. The links to her Facebook photos (which were of me in my panties copied with permission from my site) so I think it might be true. Then again, what do I know. Maybe it was something else.
      About the modeling and the panties. You do know I’m a guy, right? Did you scroll all the way to the bottom of the main page (the category posts)? I hope it has you laughing. Whomever is giving you smack about it I wish they’d leave a comment on my blog. As long as there isn’t too much fancy HTML or other code I generally approve the comments and publish them no matter how obnoxious. ( I do reserve the right to do some editing).
      The photos of me modeling ladies full brief panties (Back view) are intended for viewing by adult women only. The page your friends were talking about is linked at the upper right corner of my blog under the “pages section. I know it’s difficult to navigate, so I’ll leave a link with a warning in a reply just after this one to make it easy and so if you don’t like the separate link in the next comment you can delete just that link if you want. Thanks so much for reading and hopefully ROTFLYFAO when you see it if you haven’t already.

  5. The following link(s) in this comment is/are probably the one(s) your friends were giving you smack about. I’m pretty sure Marge posted them on Facebook. It is intended for ADULT WOMEN ONLY and has photos of me, Panty Buns male-modeling ladies full brief panties (back view). Hope find it as funny as most people do. There are more photos of me male-modeling ladies panties (back view) with plenty of places to make comments, questions and suggestions . with no need to be polite or diplomatic. The photos are released and may be copied and shared. I’ll understand if you delete this comment because it’s probably not in keeping with your blogs general tone. In case you don’t delete it, do you think Facebook would censor you if you posted these links or my photos there? There’s no genitalia showing.

    • This all sounds very interesting. I can’t wait to check them out tomorrow. I don’t know if FB would delete them but lemme see them first. You can always try under a pseudonym and random e-mail address and see what happens. As for comments on my wall, I won’t delete them. I love hearing what you have to say and it’s my space so I can do whatever I want basically. Post your comments; worries πŸ™‚

  6. I think I found the right Facebook pid for the archived photo facebook missed. I posted it in the comments of Marge’s blog . I hope it shows up here like it did there. It was of you, Panty Buns, in your deep pink nylon panties and blouse bending over with a hairbrush. The links to the groups where Marge must have posted it in were listed on the right side, but I couldn’t tell what the privacy settings had been or where at the groups they’d been posted. I don’t have a Facebook account so I can’t check on it. I couldn’t find the photo at the groups themselves so the photo pid i left here must be just a photo invitation archive that Facebook left up like a tease. That’s pretty ironic. Luring people in with the same kind of photo they censored. Weird. Incidentally, as you already know, I posted your panty photos on MySpace (giggle).

  7. It worked! the photo shows up when you click on the bold print above. Enjoy. Nice blog, Mia. Hope you don’t mind some of Mister Panty’s fan club stopping in. Watch out for Sadie and N. Lynn. They’re pretty sarcastic. I don’t see any reason that photo should be censored. It’s kind of like a hot pink bathing suit. Maybe Marge was right that it was gender discrimination.

    • I’ll check it out soon. I’m on vacation but as soon as I can I’ll look at it. PS: I absolutely don’t mind if Panty’s fans stop by. Come over as often as you’d like πŸ™‚
