Due to an unexpected one-month Facebook “vacation” I was given from October 6, 2019 to November 7, 2019 — the first time it ever happened to me in the ten plus years that I have been on Facebook — I made some changes regarding how often I post, and how much I post, on Facebook. While I am not exactly sure why I was given a “vacation” — Facebook never tells us precisely why, do they? — I am hoping that these changes will enable me to survive longer on Facebook. The main changes I am making are the following:
1. From now on, I will be posting fewer hours each day on Facebook. Hopefully, this will convince Facebook’s bots and algorithms to leave me alone, and to not view my posts as “suspicious activity”, as they have apparently been doing since August of 2019. Perhaps Facebook changed their algorithms and further tightened their security. Who knows. Maybe that is why I suddenly began receiving so many “suspicious activity” warnings at the aforementioned time.
2. Unlike before where I was posting multiple links with many of my graphics, my graphics now only normally include ONE LINK directly above or below it when viewed on Facebook. The reason for this change is because some social networks apparently view multiple links being included in a post with suspicion, and their bots and algorithms may erroneously interpret the post as being automated spam. Whether or not that is why I was given a “vacation” from Facebook, I really don’t know for certain. As I said, Facebook never gives us specific reasons for our being locked out of our accounts, thrown in jail, or banned from the platform entirely. Their automated messages always deal in generalities.
What this means is that whereas before I included a number of related links to my articles, series and KJV Bible Verse Lists on the Bill’s Bible Basics website with each graphic that I posted on Facebook, I now just include ONE LINK, which will take you to my original post on the Bill’s Bible Basics Blog. It is there — on my blog — that you will find all of the related links for each image that you see on Facebook. I know that this may be an inconvenience for some of you, but at this point, I am just working to survive longer on Facebook, and to avoid hassles as much as possible.
So, if you really want to dig deeper into God’s Word, please click or tap on the link that you see included with each of my graphics on Facebook. Trust me. If you do so, you will quickly discover that the Bill’s Bible Basics website is a veritable treasure house of God’s Word in the form of articles and series, KJV Bible Verse Lists, poetry, graphics, maps, etc.
