Facebook Security Raises White Flag of Surrender after Stories Linking the Company & It’s Founder to Pornography!
The Well Known Facebook Logo Has Been Tied to Online Pornography
<chrisTwire> I want to thank my many fans and readers who supported me through this difficult time as I tried to restore my Facebook account while fighting Facebook’s internal security who after nearly 10 days finally gave up and surrendered after negative media attention was focused on the company and it links to pornography.
Case in point; the pen is mightier than the sword. For over a week I tried to log onto my Facebook account but was denied. For security reasons the company required that I first identify friends from photos supposedly pulled from their image files on Facebook. The problem was their computer pulled photos and none were of my friends… or even human for that matter.
Facebook gives you nine photos to identify in order to confirm you are the owner of your account. At the bottom of the webpage Facebook offers the names of nine of your friends which they ask you to correctly identify from the images displayed. If you answer correctly your account will be restored. If not it can be revoked in time.
On the first try photo # 1 was a pornographic image of a man (full nude) flashing the camera. I have no idea who the subject in the photo was, nor any clue where Facebook found the photo. Then Facebook showed me body parts, like large breasts without a face and wanted me to put a name to that image. Other shots they wanted me to identify were of a statue of Jesus Christ, and an old 19th century looking building.
Since there is no way for anyone to identify such photos Facebook & I played the photo game for over a week. What saved my account is not Facebook stepping up and answering my emails, nor did they make any effort at first to correct the problem.
But after writing my second article for chrisTwire exposing Facebook and it’s founder, Mark Zuckerburg’s links to XXX pornography, Facebook security decided to cooperate and manually selected the photos of my friends for me to ID which I did without difficulty. My account has now been restored.
The lesson here for all is simple; the power of the press is a real tool people can use to get the attention of these huge corporations and of government officials to get them to take action. It seems neither like having their dirty laundry being exposed to the public. A non-violent solution that has had a good ending. Such things are rare these days.
