Facebook Cracks Down on Terms of Service
By Paul Pannone
Business owners who use their private pages for business may find themselves violating Facebook’s Terms of Service and shut down in a growing sweep by the company to clean up the practices that violate the agreement.
Last week a business owner in the Washington DC area that had their page taken down continues to struggle, rebuilding their business and to find out exactly what happened. In an ongoing eWedNewz investigation, “Pam” and other administrators assigned to handle the pages say they have their suspicions and are actively pursuing definitive answers. Onlookers attributed the use of personal pages for business as a possible cause but no definitive, clear answer has been found.
Sources familiar with the story claim now that stock price has been lifted since the disappointing IPO and stock value to investors for over a year, look for changes at Facebook to enforce their terms of agreement and aggressively pursue more advertising revenue.
Since the blog post on Paul J Pannone , other business owners contacted us after finding their pages were down. One owner was unaware they were down, alerted by friends who tried to use their page. The disruption was temporary but caused some to check their total dependence on Facebook– or any “free” Social Media– and put greater emphasis on their own websites and channels which they own and control without any third-party intervention.
