The F Word
Like any other emerging author, I created a fan page on Facebook to help promote my book and connect with readers at www.facebook.com/bandfags To date, I have amassed a good 200 fans, who I have kept in contact with over the past almost two years.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit the Terms applicable to Facebook Pages at http://www.facebook.com/terms_pages.php.
And voila! My BAND FAGS! a novel fan page has been REMOVED from Facebook!
While I understand that the word "fag" is offensive to some individuals, I find it ridiculous for Facebook to deem my fan page a "violation" of terms without further looking into matters. This is clearly a violation against me as a gay author.
I would contact Facebook with regards to this matter, but they make it next to impossible to contact them regarding ANYTHING on their site.
