Do you have a Facebook page for your work or business? Well, #metoo. And I thought it was a good idea till recently. Then it happened!
About two months (September 2021) my Facebook clinic page got hacked and thus I lost control over it. The page had good number of following as we used to add good content to it. A lot of educational content. We did raise a ticket with Facebook support and were told that they will do the needful and restore the ownership. However, the rollercoaster ride started. They would say everything was restored, however, when we checked nothing was restored. Every time we were asked to perform the same steps and revert to them. Facebook and us had several email exchanges and most of the emails went through the same things again and again. It was so inefficient and frustrating that I have given up.
If you want to see the ghost page here is the link: Old MACS Clinic Page
We are unable to add any content as we have no access. The facebook’s redressal system is extremally inefficient. I don’t believe that is so difficult sort this issue..
Currently the page does not have a owner and Facebook either does not have an idea how to restore ownership or is not interested in doing so. In system like Facebook we are at their mercy. So, beware when you have to invest in building a brand on Facebook. You are at their mercy. They can take away what you have built and never return.
Metaverse and blockchain
Facebook, like many other centralized companies who have made billions using rest of us, have realized that we are heading to a new era where everything is decentralized. The individuals own our data and get to use it as we want. The unfair and unequitable wealth distribution and misuse of data will change with this. Every major company like Facebook would like to disrupt this as they would loose the power. The best way to do this is of entering the segment. That is what Facebook is doing by changing to Meta. of course it of not easy for them. As for me, I am looking at various Blockchain based social media. Suggestions are welcome. You will see us over there very soon. We will share more in an update to this blog.
