A little Facebook trouble…

I recently noticed that posts I was making to Facebook from the Twisting Pixels website were mysteriously vanishing. At first I thought it was an issue with Buffer, the scheduling platform I use to queue the posts. It was only when a friend told me a link I had sent to them through Facebook Messenger had been removed, that I realised something was wrong. It seems Facebook has blocked the entire site.

According to the messages I receive when I share content, the site content goes against Facebook’s community standards. I have had no warnings or notifications from Facebook to tell me which it is. As you can imagine, this is incredibly frustrating for me; it is impossible to address the (alleged) infringement without knowing what it is! I have, of course, contacted Facebook about this but as yet I have not had a response.

The result of this block for me is that I currently cannot post new content to Facebook. More importantly, however, is that visitors cannot share the content to Facebook themselves. A message saying the content is blocked is potentially damaging the site’s reputation. I’m sure anyone who has visited the site would agree that there is nothing here that could be termed as offensive or harmful. If anyone does have reason to think there is something controversial in the content, please get in touch via the contact form.

I hope this can be resolved soon as the whole point of Twisting Pixels is to promote and share artists’ work.
