Facebook Doesn’t ‘Like’ Us

Our Newsletter subscribers will be aware that we finally made an attempt at setting up a Facebook page for the business this week.

And today we deleted the Page.

We did a ‘soft’ release of the Page on Monday morning Aussie time and received quite a good reaction.  Plenty of ‘likes’ and Followers received and many of you also sent us emails to let us know that you liked the page but couldn’t ‘Like’ the page because of the possibility of exposure.

We had anticipated that.  The plan was to see if we could gain some more awareness and therefore some more customers so we can continue to grow the business.

However on Friday we were unable to access the page due to posting ‘inappropriate’ content that contradicted the terms and conditions of FB.  We have no idea what was unacceptable as we had been careful not to post anything sheer or nude with the exception of the back of thongs (which we thought would be ok!).  We had also set the page to only be viewed by those over the age of 18 years.

We believe the post that led to the notice was probably our very first video.  It was constructed by us from photos of lingerie on a mannequin in the first year we established the brand.

It was also marked by YouTube visitors as having ‘inappropriate’ content at the time and can still only be viewed by those of you over the age of eighteen years.

Strangely enough, our videos with ‘live’ models are acceptable!

So rather than fight yet another censorship battle and have to micromanage a part of our business we have decided to delete the Page entirely and forego FaceBook.  We appreciate we are placing information on their site and are therefore subject to FaceBook terms and conditions.  We respect the fact they have the right to review and restrict our content however they wish despite not agreeing with their decision.

So we will look at alternative forums to interact with our customers and subscribers in the future.

Thanks to those of you that supported us over the 6 day period!
