my personal account is permanently disabled
Sadly, as anticipated, I’ve been unjustly deplatformed and permanently disabled by the Metaverse. Hackers posted bad stuff on my personal Facebook page account even though I had two-factor authentication. This means I no longer can access my personal and professional FB and IG accounts.
Crazily enough, my FB artist page is still live. I just can’t get on there to update. Fortunately, last year I brought on a co-administrator for the account who can inform my followers of these events. I’m unable to delete my FB artist page.
I am their ideal client
After 13 years of research on the platform and fully participating in Facebook and latterly on Instagram, I know I was their ideal client. I posted good, positive things often and quickly adapted to their changes. I spent money on advertising and I bought several things through merchants using the FB and IG platform. And, to protect all of this goodness, I signed up for two-factor authentication, which clearly did not work.
the fallout of being unjustly deplatformed
My unjust deplatforming has affected my business interests. Just days prior to the hacking, I had launched a prize contest in celebration of the re-launch of this website on FB and IG. The prize for interaction on FB, IG and on this website was a chance to win one of my 22-day challenge paintings. I am working on a way to re-instate this contest. Just know that if you sign up for my newsletter, you’re in for a chance to win.
The Metaverse actions, not only have made it tremendously difficulty to continue the original contest, I believe it harms my reputation and my brand I’ve worked hard for over a decade to build.
Their action has made it almost impossible to communicate with hundreds of my New Zealand and overseas family and lifelong friends around the world. I have only a few personal contact details. Access to all my photos are gone. Although I have many of the original images safely stored in the cloud and on separate hard drives, valuable access is gone when I travel.
The Metaverse failed me big time. The fact that I can have no conversation with them or recourse is unjust and unreasonable. I will not be returning to that platform.
Don’t imagine for one moment being unjustly de-platformed can’t happen to you. I never imagined it would happen to me.
