Local Vets Home Runs Afoul of Facebook Rules [VIDEO]
Dr. Ronald Key at Shreveport's Woody's Home for Veterans talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about a recent run-in with Facebook, and how and why the social media giant declared his post unacceptable.
Key tells KEEL listeners how a recent post, in which he mentioned the home's participation in Tuesday's (May 7) Give for Good Day.
"The one day of the year we can all make a difference in our Veterans lives. You can donate now, or wait for Give for Good Day, Tuesday, May 7. We are a faith-based home for mentally Veterans. If not now, when? If not us, who?"
But Key was informed by FB that the post, which included the Woody's logo of an American eagle, had been pulled.
"The text and/or imagery you're using is related to politics or an issue of national importance, based on the definition we're using for enforcement. However, your page is not authorized to run these types of ads."
Key explains how he responded to the Facebook message, explaining that he purposely used the word "faith" instead of "religion" in hopes of avoiding just this type of controversy. He adds Facebook has yet to respond to he explanation.
