Unpacking A Repressive Directive By Facebook
Ignoring common practices of investigative due diligence, Facebook has repeatedly allowed unverified accounts to file complaints and lock out company pages.
An unverified, third-party complaint to Facebook has blocked yet another company’s page on the social networking site. The technology blog Ars Technica recently had their Facebook page locked out for alleged copyright infringement. The real issue, according to Ars Technica and other organizations placed in similar exile, is that they have been condemned harshly first without Facebook having completed the due diligence of even verifying if the complainant’s contact information is correct. Ken Fischer, an editor at Ars Technica suggested it seems paradoxical that Facebook treat their most valuable assets (users) in this way.
