FACEBOOK: Add "Cringe React" NOW

For years, you had 2 options concerning Facbeook posts: like them, or don't. In response, Facebook has created "reactions," giving more variety than the simple "like." This new feature gives you the choice to "Like," "Love," "Sad," "Haha," "Wow," or "Angry."  However, there is one extremely notable omission from this list.  Sign this petition to demand that Mark Zuckerberg add a "Cringe" react immediately.  When I see something cringy, I am relegated back to 2008 as I choose which reaction to use. I don't like the post! I certainly don't love it! And even if it's funny, it didn't make me "Haha." But it didn't make me sad or angry, either. The bottom line is: IT MADE ME CRINGE!  My independent research has determined that cringy posts on Facebook have been on an exponential rise, and they don't show any signs of slowing. If Facebook is to be a truly interactive social network, I must be given access to one of the basic emotions that I use in real life.  Without a cringe react, people end up either using angry react or mocking each other in the comments. This leads to an increase in Facebook quarreling. Facebook fights lead to a hostile environment on your platform, Mr. Zuckerberg. That means people avoid Facebook, which means you get to mine less data. Less data from us means less information on how humans behave, which makes you a less convincing robot; and based off of your public appearances, you need all the help you can get.

Put Ray Gibson Back on FB; Force FB employees to LEAVE HIM ALONE! #Justice4KingRay

#Justice4KingRay Facebook'ing While Black Restore Ray Gibson’s Facebook account, get employees to stop harassing him, and apologize for isolating & ostracizing the man.  Since 2016, employees of that platform have been doing everything to this Black man’s account, disrupting his life, and the lives of thousands of people (if not more).  The only apparent crime he has committed is to exercise his Freedom of Speech, 1st Amendment Right to speak his mind wherever he wants to.  Mostly in mixed-race groups, and to keep him from promoting his book or YouTube videos, they kept putting him in their group-jail toy. They even kicked him off the platform for a day for giving a friend a nasty-funny “Halloweenie” meme in his inbox and have been deleting posts off his timeline.  The problem with this is that he is an international mentor, business owner with a presence on that platform, chosen father of many around the world, a family man, educator, our leader, a veteran of the armed forces, and a friend to many people.  He is up to big things and was wasting his time fighting ghost employees, way too often.  Using the internet, he helps people all over the world, but especially in the U.S., get a great many details of their life handled. Ray Gibson is a great guy, funny, serious, smart, and was starting to get a bigger presence on that platform.  Perhaps the government made him go away; maybe they didn’t want him doing what many do on that platform with impunity … we don’t know or care!  They don’t apply community standards across-the-board fairly, and they are way too vague.  We have a copy of what they said to him on August 8, 2019 and to this day, none of us understands anything, except an employee in New York, NY (or employees) had it in for him.  This is what a doctor at the VA had to say to him on August 6, 2019, when he sent a link of one of his Medium articles to her: ---------------------------------------------------------- Dear Mr. Gibson,Thank you so much for sending me your words to read. It is a beautiful piece that is both a commentary on the intolerance and ignorance in our society but also the resilience of the human spirit. You are the embodiment of courage and perseverance and I wish you nothing but Everything you want and deserve. I hope for the best for your father's medical concerns and am glad to know you guys are more of a united front than others believe. I am glad to know you are well Mr. Gibson - and apparently in the midst of very important and fulfilling work! Thank you again for sending me your article.It was my pleasure to read. Warmest regards ----------------------------------------------------------- Does this look like the kind of guy who is as much of a trouble-maker as those FB employees made him out to be?  NO!  They made a terrible mistake.  Then again, you can watch this video and you may have some idea why FB has become a major bully around the world; so have many other things!  Hit with discrimination lawsuits of employment, they are doubly crazy about its users, who have no recourse when things like this happen.  We think it's also a sexist move on their part, as witnessed by this; because Ray is loud, proud, and doesn't hold back! Maybe they think he's a Louis Farrakhan, who was also banned from that platform?  Ray Gibson is not a Muslim, practices no man's religion, and what are they doing anyway?  At least they had the respect to tell Farrakhan why he was banned.  They've said nothing to Ray. We also don’t care that Facebook is a privately-owned business.  That business deals with human lives & social circles and is quite different than a privately-owned business dealing with products or services.  They are in the business of manipulating people, are the largest social media platform in the world, the fastest and with the most information.  With 2.4+ billion daily users and over 35,000 employees, it is uncanny that they have picked him out of a crowd and targeted him unjustly. Those employees could be hiding any place in the world! Facebook has to follow the law, too It’s also unfair that Facebook employees keep targeting black people who are a threat to white nationalism, or ones who disrupt their comfort zone of privilege.  They crippled his groups at times, wouldn’t let him give himself a nickname (between his first/last legal name), and during the month of February 2018, they put him in group-jail 4 times that month for 5 days at a time.  Never telling him what he did wrong, employees were stalking him, haunting him, and never saying anything while hacking his account.  The most he got out of them is that they won’t tell him why they deleted him ... for safety/security reasons.  He's the one who needed psychological safety & security from those people.  Something about violating standards too much, but never told him which ones he violated.  The were violating his right to free-speech! No, they’re protecting their behinds from a civil rights law suit and they did this just because they didn't like him or his politics?  How dare they!  You do realize that FB performs psychological testing of users to keep them addicted to that platform?  I suppose because Ray used his time wisely there and was using that place more than it was using him, they got rid of him.  He refused to boost his Pages, so FB could steal his money when they chose to shut it (or him) down?  They've done it to far more popular people there.  Hey, maybe they were afraid he would become more popular than their jealousy would tolerate.  What a piece of work FB employees are. Senators and House of Representatives need to create a bill that prevents FB employees from stalking & harassing users the likes which they have Ray Gibson.  Human Rights Campaigns need to step up to the plate. Seems to us that this is a horror film, worse than George Orwell’s 1984 book & MGM movie.  Who are these people?  The 'thought-police'?  Bad case of "Big Brother" syndrome, giving employees too much power & control!  Is FB applying foreign policy standards of NO Freedom of Speech on Americans, like it was discovered about Google & YouTube (link removed for phobic reasons)?  Ray has evidence of everything they have done to him and is seeking justice.  He thinks everyone has abandoned or forgotten about him.  LET'S SHOW HIM WE HAVEN'T! Since they loved using their group-jail toy on him, the last thing he did in groups (besides make benign comments) was to post pices of his story on Medium into certain kinds of groups.  Was this some hetero-normative thing?  He is the son of a very famous man, and perhaps they didn't want him using that fact to get marginalized people a bit of visibility in this country. Things that make you go hmmmmmm. Anyway, we love him; we want and need him back!  RESTORE RAY GIBSON’S ACCOUNT and “Cease and Desist” harassment by the employees of Facebook against him.  Their policies are using the same legal jargon that Google/YouTube is using, where they enforce Foreign Hate Speech laws and oppose Free Speech in the United States.  Even worse, they are operating inside of anti-trust issues, crossing the line at will with their unconscionable agreements with users of the platform.  Mark Zuckerberg should apologize to the man personally, reprimand his employees and put a leash on his hound-dogs in New York City, NY!!! Taken out of Ray's article, here's what some FB employee said: Hi Ray, We’ve determined that you are ineligible to use Facebook. To learn more about Facebook’s policies, please review the Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities: <Useless Link Here> Unfortunately, for safety and security reasons, we can’t provide additional information as to why your account was disabled. We appreciate your understanding, as this decision is final. Thanks, Riley Community Operations NO, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND! There are eligibility criteria? Do they interview people for social media? This is absurd and they’re protecting their butts with obscurity! Psychological warfare, I tell you…

Petition to Mark Zuckerberg

Reinstate our wrongfully disabled Facebook profiles

For many, Facebook has become their main avenue to keep in touch with their family and friends, share their favorite photos and videos, and engage in conversation. So many applications, games, and websites are linked to Facebook, prompting you to use Your Facebook account as your login. All of this is GREAT, until all of the sudden, without warning, your Facebook page is disabled, with no explanation.  I, as well as many others, have had our Facebook profiles disabled without warning.  We have lost Business, photos, videos, messages, memories and more. I no longer have access to the profiles of my friends and family members who have passed away.  I was never put into “Facebook jail” like others for posting stuff that violated Facebooks policies. Some people are constantly posting racist, sexist, terroristic,  pornographic, disrespectful stuff, and nothing ever happens to them. The only things that I post about are my husband, family, sports, nature, inspirational stuff, and my cancer journey. Nothing that I post violates any of facebooks policies.  On 11/27/2019 my Facebook profile was  locked for “suspicious activity” though I did nothing wrong.  I was instructed to verify my identity in order to have my account reinstated. I uploaded my drivers license, as well as a selfie holding my license, a notarized letter from my bank, and a notarized marriage license application. I uploaded these via email to Facebook security, uploaded via the Facebook help page, DM on Instagram and Twitter, And also mailed them via priority mail to Facebook, which tracking confirms were delivered. All with no response. Upon searching in social media, I discovered many others were experiencing the exact same with situation. A few suggested contacting the better business bureau to file a complaint, which I did. I received multiple generic replies from Facebook via the better business bureau, all referring me to the Facebook help page or advising me they couldn’t help me via that platform.  I’ve had my profile for 10+ years and haven’t violated any of facebooks polices during that time. I’ve been banned from Facebook and so have many others. When I try to create a new profile, it automatically disables it.  I’ve tried contacting people directly at facebook with no response. I’ve also reached out to all of my local news channels, but there was no reply. The point of this petition is to get my profile reinstated and to bring as much attention and pressure to this situation as possible so that others in the same situation can also get help reinstating their profiles.  Facebook encourages people to promote their products and businesses, to build groups and pages, and to network with like minded people. Millions of people use Facebook as the primary platform for their business, their groups, and their main point of contact with their family and friends... but Facebook will also erase your entire social media existence in the blink of an eye with absolutely no cares in the world. Facebook needs to be held accountable!  Please sign and share    #facebook #facebookbanned #disabledfacebook #boycottfacebook #markzuckerburg
