Hello fellow paintballers and paintball industry professionals. A sad set back for our industry is occurring. Not many know this but Facebook is crippling our industry. Facebook has categorized paintball as a weapon. Because of this no paintball related businesses can advertise effectively. That means its impossible for anyone with a love for our sport and hobby to receive deals and promotions from local fields/stores. The lucky businesses that have been able to do it are walking a fine line and once the Facebook algorithms catch up to them its game over. Its a wrong labeling and making it impossible for many small businesses within our industry to compete and reach their markets.
We are calling on all Paintballers friends and family to rise up and help gain awareness of this wrongful classification. We need to change this classification so that our industry can grow. Sign the petition and spread the petition. We need this classification changed so that we can all benefit from the marketing power of Facebook ads. This will ONLY BENEFIT our sport. Please sign and share this message.
