As most of you know, Facebook shut down the Read M Lipstick account last night without any warning. They said it was because the account was a group, not an individual.
At first I said fine, my mistake. However, as the day has gone on and I've been out trying to reconnect with friends I have come across hundreds of Facebook accounts set up as group names. Churches, groups, obvious fake names and even some pretty blatant slurs with a letter twisted to fool the monitors.
I'm more convinced now that we were simply targeted. Especially since I've been receiving emails and comments from others who had the same thing happen.
Well, we have another account set up in my personal name (Janet McGregor Dunn) and we've hit 99 friends in one day. That's pretty darned good for a partial day effort. Most of it is thanks to friends in the Network, Twitter friends and all those on Facebook who've been sending out emails to their conservative friends asking them to friend us!
We still have a long way to go. Hundreds and hundreds of contacts have been lost.
I think it's time we targeted Facebook and took it over for conservatives.
It's easy to set up an account, it's easy to keep up with it. Give it a shot. Find Janet McGregor Dunn and friend me. I'll be happy to help you get going!
