Warning About VPN's and Our Facebook Group

Postby Dicehunter » Wed Nov 22, 2017 7:55 pm

For anyone that's using VPN's, Disable it before you logon to facebook, They are really cracking down on anyone that uses a VPN due to a lot of scammers using VPN's to bypass certain geo restrictions.

My Facebook account got disabled 2 days ago, I managed to get in touch with customer service, They reinstated it and even without using a VPN they disabled it again only a few hours ago, this time for reasons unknown.

So just be warned.

I use a VPN as I am often at a hotel and using a public access point and would like some form of security. If they want to ban me for it, fine ban me, my life will be fine without facebook lol

Friends don't let Friends do Facebook.

Drugs are fine.

In Germany some people call Facebook "Fratzenbuch" which can be translated in english as "Grotesque-Book" or "Grimace-Book"... ;)

Here it is sometimes referred to as 'fjaseboka'

'fjas' meaning to either waste your time or have your time wasted with no gain or fruitfull purpose.

It actually seems to be required.
And for a lot of work, seems to take over from the cv. So you better have a selfie or two from a mountaintop or whatnot.
