How to clear your Facebook search history

 

Can you lose your Facebook Page because you didn't follow the rules? Facebook would never shut down a Page because they ran a contest and did something like... oh, I don't know, maybe offer to donate a dollar to charity for every Like their Page gets... right?

I'm constantly seeing people saying they've never heard of a Page being shut down for violating a rule and that Facebook doesn't enforce most of them anyway. Well, here are two examples of some popular Pages that were shut down by Facebook for some seemingly innocent contest rule violations. Think it's okay to do it just because you see the big dogs doing it? Think again.

It's always great practice to also  to go back and review what you've posted and commented on just in case. This is a must-do.

Martin Gysler's comment, February 6, 2013 11:27 AM
Yes Dawn, and I think it's not only a must-do but also an educational matter.

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks?

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks? | Social Media and the Future of Education | Scoop.it

Social networks are captivating – there’s no doubt. The minds behind building the popular social media platforms of today knew exactly what they were doing and they saw it before any of us ever did. It’s a brilliant idea really – create a medium that allows people from all over the world to connect, share and collaborate like they never have been able to before in the history of the Earth. Incredible!

But an unforeseen (or potentially foreseen, but ignored) consequence is addiction. Social networks have been so good at “helping” us, but now they’re hindering us. From what you might ask? Well, ask your friends, family, parents, even children what they think. And although it is often joked about, it isn’t a joking matter.

I love it too, it just takes a little practice.

Yes Martin. I am not in love with the scrolling up to discover new things but maybe I'll get used to it. What do you say on that one?
Martin Gysler's comment, February 6, 2013 3:41 PM
Hi Robin, Yes, I understand and I think you're right not to test all the new tools, it is a lot of work and it is not always worth the trouble. What I can say after a few tests, is that the tool is slow and I do not really understand how it could be interesting for me. Finally, I think we can do the same thing with Twitterfall in a more simple and faster. But perhaps I have not yet understood what this tool can do.
