Facebook Can Delete Your Business PageSeptember 17, 2013 9:45 am ·
Facebook Lacks Common Courtesy
Facebook can delete your business page at whim. Unless you have popular high-profile social media connections or someone who has a direct link to Facebook – your business page or fanpage could disappear without notice in the next five minutes.Though you can report pages that disappear here, you may or may not receive a canned email acknowledgement.
So let this be a word of caution to other businesses, brands, and individuals who are increasingly relying on Facebook to communicate with their audience, gather feedback, and provide support: You are at their mercy. The entire community you’ve worked so hard building up, spent so much money developing, could be gone in an instant on the whim of some person at Facebook or some automated reporting algorithm. Your complaints may be ignored, and your one-click “appeal” may not even be considered. Your community can be erased without a single explanation. – Matt Kruse, Developer of Social Fixer
NEVER PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET
Unfortunately, Kruse placed the majority of his eggs in one basket. In the blink of an eye, an entire community was erased. Never build your business around Facebook, or any other third-party social media site.
Use all third-party sites to drive traffic to your own hub. It’s great to form communities in social media but do not hook your entire company venture on one third-party social media site.Think of all third-party sites as fluid; here today and potentially gone tomorrow.
