In my opinion, it’s time to move from corporate-owned platforms to open source uncensored platforms. The Fediverse is a federation of several social media platforms that are comparable to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. and have the advantage of being easier for cross-posting. You can also link your WordPress account to any of them. There are millions of users who have migrated over there. Here’s the link in case you want to go exploring. https://fediverse.party/en/fediverse/
Thanks, Melinda, will check it out.
Fediverse? Are you serious? I visited the site you referred to only to be presented with some kind of techie nightmare. Fediverse is not for ordinary users. I’ve been using the Web for decades and seeing that list of what? Who knows what it is but I won’t be spending time trying to find out.
Here is the email that FB sent:
It certainly doesn’t say much of anything.

Facebook done the same to me (and Blogfactory) this week
So sorry to hear that technofiend. Did they ask for a photo ID to unlock your account(s)?
Stop using FB! I did, years ago, it’s the only act that hurts.
I would have preferred it was my decision to use or not use FB, instead of theirs.
True, but there is the matter of principle and the fact that FB is an inrinsic part of surveillance capitalism.
I understand that, Bill. But aren’t all the social media sites similar? I’ve been using FB for over 10 1/2 years, that’s a lot of connections lost if I cannot get back there. During that time, I used their site to promote anti-war, anti-imperialism, and anti-capitalism.
Yes, but not any more, right?
Unless FB offers another method to prove my account, I will be locked out forever.
Have they explained why they need mugshot of you? What does it prove? What’s its purpose?
No, FB doesn’t “explain” anything. It’s an automatic response from them to me when something happened to my profile account. FB said someone tried to gain access, the email didn’t say if anyone actually did access my account.
FB wants proof that I am the actual person for this account, hence the photo ID. There are no photos of me on FB. FB also said I could give them two other types of ID, such as a utility bill.
In the past, I was allowed to re-login by answering questions about recent activity on my profile, such as comments I made.
In my experience, even if you were to send a photo, they might still not reactivate your account. You’re dealing with algorithms, not people, so it’s easy to fall between those cracks. Fb is extremely intrusive and hopefully will become surplus to requirement before much longer. That thought sustains me.
Good point, Rebel Voice.
Yes, FB is very intrusive and I refuse to comply with sending a photo ID.
This is so idiotically, maddeningly insane!
It really is, Amy.
Thanks for all the sharing of posts that you do.
Delete Facebook. Use Mewe.com
I wish I could make that decision, however, FB has “deleted” me.
I tried using MeWe, and liked it except hardly anyone else was using it, so I stopped as well. I may go back there in the future.

Holy Censor!!! Please keep up the good work. If you think about to send a “middle finger facebook like”, this one is made for you -> https://gfkdsgn.wordpress.com/2018/09/05/anti-social-media/
Haha, good one, Fotoroto!
you’ll find a few pop art propaganda portraits over there with creative-commons license for your reports. at least freespeech tv, telemundo, wallstreet cn, rt, and a few others used their “free pop art” downloads…
Thanks, Fotoroto, will check it out. Always on the look out for good copyright-free pics to use on the blog posts.
it’s not copyright-free, but you can use the graphics thanks to the copyleft license. it’s legal & free of charge as long as you mention them. https://gfkdsgn.wordpress.com/category/free-download/
Thanks for clarifying that.
sorry for reading the license, but we are artists, too. 😉
No problem. I generally use a Creative Commons license on most of my photos so am familiar with licenses. Always appreciate the generosity of artists and photographers who allow us bloggers to use their work.
TY, really appreciate that. since dropping the artists name isn’t just a form of respect, in the IT age of search engines it’s a form of support to put a link onto. and i’m somehow glad to say that independent publishers like the DandelionSalad often take the time and “pay” this kind of digital respect, while most major publishing houses don’t.
Thank you, Fotoroto.
Most (close to all) the photos and pictures used on Dandelion Salad are from photographers and artists who have a Creative Commons license on their work. The others are either screenshots, photos that the writer(s) sent, from Wikipedia (also licensed for use) or my photos.
Well done! That’s important to care since it could risk all the other content to be taken down by elected haters.
There is the risk that the photographer leaves Flickr or removes photos from their account. I have many missing photos on older blog posts.
Lo, this is why you (we) shouldn’t use Facebook:
Thanks, Bill, good article.
Hi Lo, why is your Facebook account locked ? I have shared this post on my Facebook and MeWe pages and on my Minds channel. I hope your Facebook page is unlocked ASAP. Charles
Thanks for sharing the posts, Charles as always.
FB sent an email message saying “someone tried to use your account”, or something along those lines. So, I really don’t know.
FB is requesting a screenshot of a photo ID and I will not do that, so I may never be able to access either my personal account or the DS Page again.
The DS Page is still active but as I’m the only administrator it’s essentially locked down, too.
I will continue sharing your posts on Facebook, Minds, MeWe as long as I am able. I posted your latest in several Facebook refugees groups as well. My email is [edited] if you want to drop me a quick line so we can stay in touch regardless. Hugs & Blessings… Charles
Thanks so much for your continued support, Charles. Always very much appreciated! I did edit out your email addy from your comment.
My email is [edited] if you want to send me a note so we stay connected no matter what. Not sure if my earlier reply went through. Charles
Yes, your earlier comment went through but was held in moderation as it contained a link (your email address).
OK, please email me so I can add you to my contact if you wish Thanks ! Charles
Yes, will do. Thanks again, Charles.
