What could be the height of frustration in your business?

I went through one of that in the last couple of days. And I am sure at least some of you would have gone through a similar experience.

It is when some of these companies treat you like a “piece of crap” and either don’t respond to your queries or, give you some weird responses, the meaning of which you are expected to figure out like in most of those art films.. 🙂

We had one of those experiences with Facebook, when they shut down our FB business ads account without even telling us clearly why they did it.

We have never received any red flags or, warnings for any violation though we have been using it for almost 3 years now.

And when companies like these come back to your “so-called” appeals with a robotic response, you feel all the more frustrated.

Nevertheless, FB decided to stay with their decision in spite of all our appeals and we decided to move on…Aloo Palak Recipe

Dilip has always had a very straightforward approach to the use of the Internet – Keep it clean and help keep it clean. And going with this motto of his in life, he always ensures that he reports offensive posts on social media and ensures that he does his part to keep the internet clean.

He had done this a lot of times on Facebook as well. Ironically most of these posts were not even supposed to be there on Facebook in the first place but gets through all the cracks in their policing model.

And good netizens get caught for no wrong of theirs.

I felt sad for him when this FB ads issue happened. He had spent a lot of time nurturing his ads and audiences.

At times I feel that such poor treatment of responsible citizens is what then makes them go rogue. At least for people who aren’t very strong at heart and are devastated by such rejections.


Dilip has decided to move on in life and to focus more on Bing ads, Twitter and Pinterest.Aloo Palak Recipe
