Facebook Calling my Site Spam after I Opened up About Being Autistic

Hello. You may be thinking, if you saw this post on Facebook, “why have I not seen anything for a month?” Back in November, I was marked as spam, and all my posts leading back to when I opened up about autism on my photo blog were deleted. They left all posts before I talked about autism. Facebook defines spam as:

  • Artificially increase distribution for financial gain

  • Create or use fake accounts or compromise other people’s accounts to impersonate or pretend to be a business, organization, public figure, or private individual

  • Attempt to create connections, create content, or message people.

  • Restrict access to content by requiring people to like, share, or recommend before viewing

  • Encourage likes, shares, or clicks under false pretenses

  • Maliciously use login credentials or personally identifiable information by:

    • Attempting to gather or share login credentials or personally identifiable information

    • Using another person’s login credentials or personally identifiable information

    • Promise non-existent Facebook features

I do not understand how opening up about autism, self-expression and ideas on how to be more creative and innovative falls under this definition.

Please leave your thoughts in a blog post comment.
