For those of you who have been taking an interest in my situation with Facebook, I wanted to keep you updated with the communication between myself and a Facebook representative.
As you all know from my post yesterday (see below), I replied to the initial brush off email I received from them with this –
“I don’t really understand the situation to be honest. There’s no block on the words gay, bisexual or transgendered. Why is lesbian blocked out?”
And this morning I was greeted with the following response:
“We are sorry for any inconvenience this might cause. In the past we have had abuse on our site, which has led us to remove this word from being able to be displayed on ads. Let me know if you have any further questions.”
Now I’m not sure about anyone else, but again this just isn’t a valid response for me. I’m really not happy about this at all and I would love people to complain about this and to get some visibility over this. Are lesbians and their businesses and voices just not that important to Facebook!?
