Facebook Block - Social Effects

We all know that Facebook is one of the best social networks in the cyberspace. It connects you with friends, relatives and work. It brings information, buckets of data, and so much more.

But when it comes to Facebook, it has it's own rules, such as the privacy policy and it's Community Guidelines Policy that is erroneously implemented by bots that is more on algorithmic in approach and fails to determine (sometimes) in the reasoning accounts to be blocked.


The effects will be from mild or worse, dangerous. And we all know that most of the netizens could not afford to be gone off grid with Facebook alone. (Mind that several will go to Twitter or Google+) and also they may show such kind of disappointment on being blocked from a social site from a simple signup of a new account to retrying to restore the account by all means necessary and that will include going to bogus sites, in which they have their devices either hacked or infected by a virus.

Another thing is that there are instances that an account is blocked due to alleged false identity or even several error in logging in such as a change in IP addressess that prompts Facebook to block the entry.


Logging in is like a security checkpoint with guards checkup for belongings. It's like a boarder guard checking the immigrant's details. So does applies in several websites. Log-in is already a usual protocol when entering to a site for security reasons. But how about errors in logging in?

The answer is simple. Find a way to fix the account. Use Gmail or Yahoo mail for account recovery. Or try to clean cookies using CCleaner and try again.


We all know that Facebook has lots of harsh content that is deserved to be blocked. But there are other things, benign posts, posing no threat to everyone, is still being censored to the extent that some kind of freedom is deprived. Why?

Well, there are lots of cases of censorship have taken place on Facebook. Effects? Users tend to be manipulated by post sorted by a bot. But there is something more than that.

Take this January 27 article from the Washington post about Prophet Muhammad for instance.

"Only two weeks after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a strongly worded #JeSuisCharlie statement  on the importance of free speech, Facebook has agreed to censor images of the prophet Muhammad in Turkey — including the very type of image that precipitated the Charlie Hebdo attack.
It’s an illustration, perhaps, of how extremely complicated and nuanced issues of online speech really are. It’s also conclusive proof of what many tech critics said of Zuckerberg’s free-speech declaration at the time: Sweeping promises are all well and good, but Facebook’s record doesn’t entirely back it up.
Just this December, Facebook agreed to censor the page of Russia’s leading Putin critic, Alexei Navalny, at the request of Russian Internet regulators. (It is a sign, the Post’s Michael Birnbaum wrote from Moscow, of “new limits on Facebook’s ability to serve as a platform for political opposition movements.”) Critics have previously accused the site of taking down pages tied to dissidents in Syria  and China ; the International Campaign for Tibet is currently circulating a petition  against alleged Facebook censorship, which has been signed more than 20,000 times.
While Facebook doesn’t technically operate in China, it has made several recent  overtures  to Chinese politicians and Internet regulators — overtures that signal, if tacitly, an interest in bringing a (highly censored) Facebook to China’s 648 million  Internet-users."  Src: Click Me
In that thing alone, we can see that censoring the Prophet's images seems to to deprive free speech after all. Connection? Being blocked is like being censored. And most users tend to follow what Facebook shows - like in an indirect form of brainwashing, in the same way the mass media posting it.
And nothing beats the internet. Many facts are posted here. So is fallacy and misguided ideologies. And there are still many people fell on it. The idea when you are getting blocked on Facebook? Don't register again. But I don't force you, because it's your choice. But then again. Don't be angry to Facebook if you are blocked for no reason at all.
Being blocked by friends? Who cares anyway? They are not part of your life. They don't even know you deeply. Just move on. Better to reflect on a place full of silence, or to have time reading some real facts from most reliable sites on the net. But remember, always choose the right side of the story.
