BB Page Deleted by Facebook


Just wanted provide feedback on the questions we have been getting about the Borderland Beat Facebook page, it has been deleted by Facebook. This page (that had the Borderland Beat title) was started a long time ago and had a huge following, I believe we had over 100,000 followers at the time it was removed by FB. We used this page to share posts from this blog. We also used to publish a lot of raw content that was sent to us directly from members on the page itself, using the messenger on the page. We would, many times, publish pictures and video of carnage of the result of cartel violence, FB would just cover it with a splash page. They did not like any actual videos of executions as they suspended my account on numerous occasions, so we would avoid posting any execution videos that were sent to us.

Recently someone reported the page and it was suspended, we were never notified what content was the problem. I immediately appealed. The staff on Facebook reviewed the page and they felt the whole page violated the community standards and chose to just delete the whole page permanently. I find this move might have an ulterior motive.

Twitter and Instagram are some alternate options (they allow almost any content), the only issue of concern is that both platforms restrict the amount of text that might be required in some of our entries.

So at this point the Facebook page is totally gone, until we decide what other options we have, if we are to use the Facebook platform to provide content information. A lot of valuable members contacts that would report on events in Mexico almost on a daily basis is lost. I was able to download all the data content before it was deleted, so I may upload it somewhere on HTML format to have access for reference basis. My ability to post any content on Facebook has been suspended for 30 days

Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to any of our loyal members.

  1. The only option is to start another page ASAP, to leave Facebook would be like throwing in the towel & handing over the victory to either the criminal groups in Mexico or the corrupt government system.

    3. Agreed with 2:54

      Why do you want to support a platform that profiles and censors you to begin with?

      Delete
    4. @ 2:54
      Our comments are profiled and censored all the time here. Ruined what use to be a good sight.

      Don’t be surprised if a Mexican official at the highest levels, bitched and complained, and influenced US officials to to reach out to FB to take the page down.

  10. Sorry, living in a overly PC world of tech giants, and they don’t want soccer moms in southern Cali spitting out there latte if they see the real uncultivated news. Sad, sorry again and sorry for the message you all try and bring for Mexico.

    1. 100% right on them(and way too many other l!b3ral types) being insanely over the top PC. However I doubt it’s for sake of soccer moms.. my guess is el gobierno de Mexico had a hand in it being shut down. Or maybe they don’t like some of the conservative comments Chivis has made. Seriously you’d be amazed what Facebook will do and have done regarding pushing left wing content and censoring right wing stuff. It’s disgusting! You’d think more of the IT world would be farther right, or more specifically libertarian..

  15. I rarely use facebook, even though alot of people do, i don't follow the crowd.
    Enemies complain about your page and as the complainers are only known by facebook, there is no way to respond to the complaint. Facebook is a private company, not a public utility, so they can do whatever they want. Too bad, BB is good stuff.

  17. Make a closed facebook group where its not openly viewed

    1. Yes, that's certainly one way to do it. That way the moderators control the content, but also those that see the content. Helps keep out people who want to ruin the page, or get it shut down.

  18. Disappointing to hear an informative website whose contributing news updates on the "war on drugs: has been dismissed.
    A miscarriage of justice. Especially for those who truly believe in finding solutions with advantagous ideals.

    1. You should at least check out Twitter. When things blew up in culiacan the #culican hashtag was the fastest place to get information. You don't have to have an account to watch the hashtags on Twitter.

    2. Just open your window and you can hear the shoots fired, you know the direction and the distance, the type of weapon. No need for Twitter.

  21. I´ve heard zetas hired hackers or engenieers to work for them, maybe they made lots and lots of accounts to "report" the page. last but not least. It has been said over and over again that you should use htpps on a site, because you can be targeted by some hacker gangs ( I remember the gang who empied many ATMS all over the country, the boss was from GTO and he had some lambos and ferraris) so yeah there are professional criminals, and who knows maybe they are part of a cartel. @Buggs

    2. 7:09 the Mexican military have expertly trained communications teams, they go on to work as civilians in their field, some have gone to cartels, but not as expert combat commamders of cuartel death squads, they just get your name and address.

    4. I've only used this blog to consume the information B.B puts out . I'm anti social media , so I'm in no position to offer any advise . But l thought Face book and Twitter were all about putting a stop to to " FAKE NEWS" . Here we have real news about the ongoing cartel crimes. Which affects so many innocent lives . People need to be aware that the drugs they use , comes with blood on their hands . Just like when " BLOOD DIAMONDS " became international news .Some treaties were established to try and put a stop of that illegal trade . I believe the same awareness needs to be made with the drug trade. So BOOOO to face-book for CENSORING TRUTH . Thank you B.B for keeping me aware .

  28. An idea Is to possibly make another facebook page and continue to publish the stories but for the actual content such as pics etc. Post the outside link, so that when readers click on it you are directed outside to BB website instead , you don't even have to publish anymore information just strictly a link to the content that Facebook would deem against community standards

  32. Since about 2016, I have not touched the business and personal FB pages I have, or logged on to them at all...too many issues, security concerns, breach of information, not to mention getting caught up in the drama of it all with inappropriate and it being a completely different online community than our community here, and on the newer forms of social media.
    No need for FB in my opinion, but I would try to get your information back from them. I have known of this to have happened and they were able to salvage their data, stories, pictures, etc. A lot has changed with privacy on FB, so not sure if that is possible anymore, but worth it is definitely worth a shot.
    I am not that active personally on any social media forum for various personal reasons, but I get utilize a few daily for the information I need and most people I know, know of, and same goes for companies today, they all mainly keep things current and updated on Twitter AND Instagram, BOTH have been, and are HUGE!
    In many circles they are both almost looked at as one, every time I see advertising or mention of one, the other is also right there. They are both heavily utilized for many reasons while old school FB might have more users, but not for a while as I don't trust the content, the numbers, the users, or anything on it really, so I ignore it. A lot of the younger crowd social media is utilizing proven platforms like Snapchat, which is small, but has taken off and expected to be huge, and the big ones in other social media are definitely YouTube and Reddit with most YouTube and Reddit accounts referencing back to and are interactive with their linked Insta and Twitter accounts.
    To make it easier, I believe there are websites that are designed to update the information you want as you enter it, to all of your other "linked" social media accounts/platforms at the same time, and as you choose to, which would save a lot of time and energy, but cover most important platforms and different forms of social media.

  35. from a follower, I had to remove some content. We chose not to post the video in question:

    I’m disgusted at their move. Just last week I reported a video because it didn’t have the disclose or approve button before watching the video. And it was of a pitbull eating a mans balls. It was disgusting! I would have liked to not see it as I was scrolling and would have preferred to opt in to see it. Anyway I reported it and FB replied that they saw nothing wrong with it. I’ll post the link here. They’re idiots at best________________________________________ Their page posts allllll kinda shenanigans. And allll of a sudden it now has a proceed to watch button

      Censorship comes from those elite who want its people to be blind. Blind to the facts and evidence of the circumstances thereof.
