Good grief. Some people need to get a life.

BTW, that website is one of my favorites.

I'll read the rest later, but his point about Zuckerberg killing his own food and publicizing it on FaceBook is such a great counter point. I haven't deactivated my account but I never check it anymore. FB sucks and things like this add to the list of reasons I need to finally deactivate my account.

Seems like wasted brainpower to me. Paralysis by analysis. It's hunting - photos with the animals taken are just part of the deal. Sensitive ninnys don't have to look and be traumatized.

This is why I rarely go on my facebook page any more.

As far as caring what the public thinks about my hunting pictures, they can choose to look away or kiss my a$$. up

Maybe they need a safe space without dead animal photos so they can feel better and not be offended....

Sounds like the employee could be trained better in how he says it is not in compliance with pictures used in paid ads. I would report the employee.

The reason is the sheer number of users and how many post pictures. It's difficult to manually police (which is what they are doing - how they go about this is largely driven by reports from users and then following the trail from one user to their friends) all of the activity and automating recognition of what's unacceptable or against policy vs what is ok is very challenging to say the least.

Though not about dead animal pictures the following article relates to us "gun types"...

I really wish social media such as Facebook and Twitter would die and do so soon and quickly.

There would be weeping and gnashing of teeth, though not from me. I'd throw a party to celebrate.

That's like FB Rivercrest, the monitoring authorities don't care what goes on and are a little scared to check it.

I read somewhere that some researcher predicts that Facebook will lose 80% of it's users by 2017. I believe it. I've never even opened an account. It just didn't appeal to me.
