I have been banned from Facebook. Till Monday, for a crime I will admit I commited… but seriously though, the image I got banned for clearly shows how nobody has a sense of humor these days.
Shameful as it is to admit Facebook Jail is actually quite peacefull.
In case you’re wondering… YES, I am super pissed by the whole deal. I’m proud to have done it but I’m still mad I got punished for it.
Let my improsonment come as a lesson to you
Here’s what I mean…
When you base your entire business off a platform you don’t own ( such as Twit-huh?, Ye Olde Facebook, Instacrap plus all those other social networks ), you’re putting yourself at greater risk of getting burned than the fool lighting a smoke at a gas station.
This is because the bastards who run these social networks have it withing their powers to shut your business down with the click of a mouse depending on which side of the bed they rolled out of.
And the worst part?
You gave up the power to contest any unexpected shutdowns of your business on their sites when you agreed to the terms of usage ( y’know, that loooooooowng ass document written in “lawyer speak” they ask you to read before using the website ).
So if your business is switched off, boo-hoo.
That’s the end of it.
You can cry your eyes out but the bastard who shut you down is only going to drink your tears with his breakfast.
Unless… Unless you’re using your social media to build your email list. That way, even if the damned powers that be decide to flick the off switch on you you still have backup channel to communicate with you audience.
A backup channel that can’t be switched off because some cocksucker got turned down for sex and is venting out his frustration towards you business “just because he can”.
Anyways, that being said…
