Seems I have joined the company of people who have 'offended' Facebook AI bots.
Do you see anything in that notification of what I posted that was misleading? Me, neither.
I'm not against 'moderation' of large groups. Wish they would do more of it, frankly. OTOH, I have carefully 'curated' my FB feed so that I don't see the 'worst' of humanity - mostly.
But FB is using AI to 'monitor' feeds, so essentially I've got a petulant 3 year old (language level) bot telling me I've tried to attract 'likes' by posting something misleading...without telling me which of my posts is at fault. I mean, it could have been a moment of sarcasm that has gotten me into trouble, I don't know.
I scrolled through my FB posts and can't see anything missing, so again - I have zero idea which of my posts caused the wrist slap.
And how, exactly, am I supposed to learn from this chastisement? If I keep repeating this 'bad' behaviour (my second warning) they can do what - cancel me? OK. You know, maybe that wouldn't be so bad?
Except that I have a lot of people on FB that I enjoy interacting with, sometimes only superficially, but it's a way to stay in touch with people at a distance.
Since I don't ever want to mislead anyone, I'm left in a dilemma - continue as before, or start to self-censor. Which means that I start to question everything I post (or re-post - because it could have been something someone else posted and I just shared it?) And again, that's not a bad thing - no one should simply post something because of confirmation bias.
OTOH, since I have zero idea what they are objecting to, I guess I continue as before.
But here's the thing - if I suddenly disappear from FB - it will most likely be that petulant bot. What they cannot do, is shut down this blog.
If you like what I say, how I say it, feel free to subscribe to this blog. Seems I still have a lot more to say and generally will say it here. At least until Google starts to censor blogs...
