Facebook and Military History

Post by Peter_Suciu » Wed Nov 27, 2019 10:21 am

This week I tried to promote the sale price of my book, "A Gallery of Military Headdress" on my Facebook business page and it was rejected by Facebook. In the past my attempts to boost a post for the book have been rejected on the grounds that it violates various standards - probably related due to weapons. Usually after an appeal Facebook agrees there are no weapons and I'm good to go.

This time Facebook maintain by its standards this falls into supporting a cause, and hence is "political."

Here is the full story, with some commentary from a couple of experts if anyone is interested:

If possible please share my Forbes piece as I'm trying to spread the word to other collectors.

I'd give you my option of FB, but my Mother told me to never talk like that.
