BosGuy promo: Like, Follow, Share (not Cher)

Pardon the plug but recent months have seen an increase in new visitors and for those who regularly check out my blog and enjoy the content I have an ask (well actually 3).

  • Subscribe to get blog posts emailed directly to your inbox.
  • Facebook users please like my Facebook page, here and share my posts.
  • Like and share blog posts – it helps me spread the word.

I know that I said I had three asks, but in today’s ADHD world, four asks is just a bridge too far. I’d also like to give a plug for Twitter. Retweets and Likes here also rock. You can follow me @BosGuy.

Shameless self promotion

BosGuyI want to thank everyone who stops by and visits my blog.  If you visit regularly but have not registered / subscribed or liked my facebook page, I’d like to ask if you wouldn’t mind doing so.  I post about 75% of all my blog posts to my facebook page and it goes without saying that those who register receive all my posts so you’ll never miss a Scruffy Sunday post like this handsome guy.

Special thanks to all of you who comment and regularly share a post with your social networks. I greatly appreciate all the support and kind words.

Ever since Facebook threatened to delete my alter ego Bos Guy, I’ve struggled to transition people to the  blog page I was forced to set up, and I would like to try and get 4,000 likes.

Facebook drama

LIke BosGuy Blog FB Page 2More 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.

Thank 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.

Let’s get social

Social media agitaIt’s time for a bit of shameless pandering.  In addition to my blog, I’m also known to spend time on a variety of social media sites.

A kiss is just a kiss (calm down Facebook)

Facebook photo that banned Jesse Jackman

My friend Jesse whom I posted on my blog here was recently banned from Facebook for sharing a photograph of him kissing his partner.  Not familiar with the story? Check out the HuffingtonPost write up here.

The publicity that ensued was able to get Facebook’s attention and they quickly rectified the situation telling HuffingtonPost “In this case, we [Facebook] mistakenly removed content and worked to rectify the mistake as soon as we were notified. We apologize for the inconvenience caused due to the removal of this content.” 

One wonders if my buddy Jesse didn’t have such an extensive social network what sort of recourse he would have?  Would he need to stop posting photos of him kissing his partner? Would cuddling or hugging be too risque and result in continued suspensions? The problem has been rectified and in a way (despite the unfortunate threats made by a few to Jesse & Dirk) the resulting press has hopefully helped to foster conversations about this policy and will make Facebook more sensitive to this in the future.

I’m curious – have you ever experienced this sort of censorship from Facebook?
