Two popular political Facebook pages started by columnist/political commentator Bill Tielman disappear under suspicious circumstances…
…and the implications of this are looking more and more ominous in the face of no answers from Facebook administration. ( I thought I lived in Canada, but this seems like something the Chinese government would do)
********UPDATE: Bill has advised that the NO BC HST page has reappeared as mysteriously as it disappearred, however the AXE THE GAS TAX page is still gone. No official explanation from Facebook as of yet. Head over to Bill’s place for more information.
Bill T. has all the details and will be posting updates as he gets information- or a lack of it! From his site:
UPDATE: Another large Facebook group I created in 2008 – Axe The BC Gas Tax – has also completely disappeared! I have again filed an inquiry with Facebook but this is looking more ominous indeed.On Friday afternoon NO BC HST – the biggest Facebook group in British Columbia, with over 130,000 members – suddenly disappeared without a trace!It’s a total mystery and to date inquiries to Facebook have not explained what has happened. Links to the group on Facebook have also disappeared and external links like the one above only lead to a Facebook home page…….a 130,000 member HST protest group can’t simply be made to disappear – can it?
