Starting this afternoon, posts I have made to our Base's internal Facebook page that contain links to the forums over time are being identified as going against community standards by Facebook and being hidden. I am disagreeing with the decision but Facebook does not give users many options when it comes to communicating with them.

In discussion with others, it appears this is a widespread issue on Facebook (posts or comments containing links to the forum being identified by FB as going against community standards). Is there something that can be done from RL side to communicate to FB that the forums are not spam? Did something get changed in the coding of the forums recently that might have triggered this?

Yes, loads of fun. Facebook (and Instagram) are blocking all links to the forums and most links to unit pages on Facebook. What a mess.

I hope this is just automation gone awry but we'll have to see.

We hope fb and ig will soon realize their mistake and stop flagging us as being 'against community standards'. (Whatever that may mean here). Neutral

I can confirm this is still ongoing and it is not just to the forums.

I have used facebook's review a few times but I'm not sure how effective it is as someone who doesn't own the site.

It could have been initially triggered by the preview of a log in area requesting login credentials as occasionally I have had trouble with other sites being flagged.
