In our previous article, we mentioned we’ve had some issues with Facebook. This isn’t the first time. A graphic we posted last December was misinterpreted by Facebook’s algorithm as a “threat of violence.” Rather than being afforded the usual appeals process, our appeal was automatically rejected without review and no further appeal opportunity was given.
New Facebook Page
Before I go into a long explanation, we’ve created a new Facebook page. It is found at: https://Facebook.com/NullifyA with the name “Nullify Abortion”.
However, it is a new page and you will have to visit and follow it to continue to receive updates. The old page was renamed to “Nullify Abortion – Archived” so the new page could adopt the old page’s name.
You can see the offending post in the previous article, but suffice it to say, we weren’t threatening anyone. We were quoting a conversation where someone was using an argumentum ad absurdum (argument from absurdity) to show how ridiculous and wicked their position was.
The baby haters will argue abortion (killing) their babies made their future life better. The satirical response demonstrated what if we used that line of reasoning towards killing ones spouse. “I k*lled my spouse because I wasn’t ready for marriage. That helped me have a better marriage with my current spouse.”
The last statement is evil! However, as the child in the womb is also a human being, the first statement should garner the same guttural response. Yet, somehow, because the baby is on one side of the birth canal its slaughter is acceptable.
If anything, Facebook’s censorship highlights the hypocrisy. Every day the anti-baby militants make the claim that killing their child made their life better and not a single one is censored. Yet, in pointing out the moral depravity of their argument, we have been permanently muffled.
Facebook has “shadow banned” us
The restrictions on our page have included a reduction in our reach. This means Facebook shows our posts to fewer people even if they like and follow our page.
To put this into perspective, my personal page has about 350 followers as of writing this. My monthly insights show I reach over 2100 unique people every month. In comparison, our Facebook page, which has over 2100 followers has a reach of less than 600 unique followers every month. Of course, there are a number of factors which go into these metrics, but when looking at the insights on our posts, most are seen by fewer than 10 people each. We have several posts daily setup to post at the optimal times for our followers. Last year, around the Dobbs decision, we had a monthly reach of over 10,000 unique people.
Conclusion: Facebook isn’t showing you our content.
Facebook page solution
We’ve tried addressing the issue with Facebook, but getting a hold of Facebook is fruitless. As such, I decided the best option was the nuclear option: Create a new Facebook page and just continue on where we left off. It stinks losing our original start date and years of history, but c’est la vie.
You need to follow our new page: https://Facebook.com/NullifyA
Yes, it’s the same address, but that’s because we renamed the old page (as mentioned earlier in the article) and adopted the old name and address for the new page.
Now, just to see how long it is before we get another content strike! *crosses fingers*
Less than 12 hours and we received a violent content strike for this meme…
