I don’t want to go into last month’s drama regarding Facebook’s threats to deactivate my account, but I would like to thank those of you who have a Facebook account and “liked” my FB blog page, facebook.com/BosGuyblog.
I’d also like to ask if you would help me by sharing the posts you like with your network of friends on Facebook. I would like to see my blog page double the amount of likes it has over the next few months, and that can only happen through your help – so thank you in advance.
Like my blog page on Facebook. It will make me feel ever so validated.
More than a few of you noticed that my public persona “BosGuy” suddenly changed on Facebook a couple weeks ago. Facebook ambushed me and gave me an ultimatum to use my real name or my account would immediately be deleted.
Facebook has always been a distribution channel for my blog posts, and now that the page is no longer “BosGuy” it seems out of place so if you ‘befriended’ me to follow my posts, please like my blog’s page: BosGuy Blog Page.
The page now known as Robert Wilson will no longer host blog posts. Over the next few weeks I will ‘de-friend’ many. This isn’t intended to hurt feelings but the Bos Guy page now known as “Robert Wilson” will actually reflect those with whom I spend time.
To stay current with my blog please like and follow the BosGuy Blog Page.

It’s time for a bit of shameless pandering so if you happen to have a profile on Facebook, Google+ or Twitter, I’d ask that you…

Facebook photo that banned Jesse Jackman
My friend Jesse made some news last month when a photo of him kissing his partner was removed by Facebook, citing it violated their community standards. Long story short, the situation was rectified by Facebook rather quickly, but Jesse has penned an article that is on the Huffington Post today, We Must (Not) Surrender that addresses a rather ugly side to last month’s story.
“…Dirk and I certainly feel that the definition and enforcement of their Community Standards policy needs significant refinement. However, we do not believe that Facebook is the enemy here. Our true adversaries are those who posted the hate-filled comments in the first place.”
I think we can agree that there needs to be a modicum of respect when we interact with each other via social media. The threats and bullying Jesse and his partner had directed at them on Facebook is the real story. I’d encourage you to read Jesse’s full article on Huffington Post here.
