Facebook is the place to be for people who want to make a difference

Allmost 4 weeks without any reply....
Today I received a message from the Facebook team!

Hi Hans,

Facebook has limits in place to prevent behavior that other users may find annoying or abusive. These limits restrict the rate at which you can use certain features on the site. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you with the specific rates that have been deemed abusive.

Your account was disabled because you exceeded Facebook's limits on multiple occasions when writing on Walls, despite having been warned to slow down.

However, after reviewing your situation, we have reactivated your account, and you should now be able to log in. Please be aware that if your account is disabled again, we will not be able to reactivate it. Once logged in, please slow down the rate at which you write on Walls. We appreciate your cooperation going forward.

Thanks for your understanding,

It would be great if we would know the limits....how can you follow the rules if
you dont know them....its like a speed limit that you dont know about...
They can give you a ticket for speeding at any speed..

But one thing is for sure there is no better place to make a difference! Sspecially if Randi Zuckerberg discovers that people who care about something spend much more time in Facebook! And since we all know that time is money... i guess that they will soon encourage people who want to make a difference to use Facebook to fight good causes!
There is not much competition from sites where you can make a difference! Because most of them dont work! Facebook is the most effective social media system!

Thank you all for your help! Join one person in Facebook and send good Karma to Facebook! http://tinyurl.com/SENDGOODKARMA

How stupid is the Canadian government?

Canadian MPs vote to include seal skin on Olympic uniforms

OTTAWA - Canada's members of parliament are trying to send an Olympic-sized message to the world by unanimously voting Wednesday to have the country's Vancouver Winter Games athletes wear seal skin on their uniforms.

http://communities.canada.com/vancouversun/blogs/soundoff/archive/2009/05/07/362491.aspx

A few great comments from people who do care..

Jennie Christensen
Wow, I must be really out of touch with the world! Since when has the Olympics become a political venue? As well, the unanimous vote is a complete shock, since I wasn't aware that ALL Canadians were in support of something so ludicrous as to put baby seal fur on Olympians. The EU has also banned the export of grizzly hides resulting from trophy hunting, so what's next on the MP's agenda? Making the Canada Men's Hockey Team don grizzly furs as they play to the gold? Instead of spending thousands of dollars on fur coats from slaughtered seals to outfilt our Olympians, why doesn't the Canadian government spend the money on support programs for our athletes so we can actually win some medals!

p.s. it's photos like the one on this article that gets all the reactionary indignation going. WHITECOATS HAVEN'T BEEN HUNTED IN OVER 20 YEARS! It is persmissible to hunt them once they are abandoned by their mothers (i.e. when mother nature considers them old enough to fend for themselves, regardless of human sentiment on the matter)

The WWF and UN both deem the Canadian seal hunt to be humane. I hope everyone on here with their knickers in a twist about the 'poor baby seals' has never eaten meat, all of which is slaughtered in a very similar way to these seals (albeit behind closed doors). The world was ready to make political statements about China when the games were in Beijing. Why can't we make political statements when our legitimate industries are being unjustly attacked by the EU and US?

I'm quite sure this stupidity on the part of our government has made a negative impact on Canada in the world and our games. I'm quite sure we'll be paying for the games long after Harper is on a pension and the added cost of the govenment making this stupid, angry and childish protest, will be noticed by the possible tourists all over the world. Everyone hates people who kill seals. Use your head Harper government. This could be the single most stupid thing your government has done to stop your party from being elected again; provincially or federally - I will never vote Tory!

I was appalled that our parliamentarians would be so stupid as to even think of having the athlete's wear seal skin. It would be a dreadful step to politicize the games in this fashion. Yuck. I'm glad that the Olympic committee does not seem to be in favour of this idiocy.

My comment in Facebook...

how stupid must this government realy be????
You can recrute a government from any kindergarten in Canada and it would be less embarassing! Incredible never seen something like this...
I am glad that the IOC will not accept this! Nobody can abuse olympic games for political campaigning...not even Canada!

United States Senate Condemns the Canadian Seal Slaughter

United States Senate Condemns the Canadian Seal Slaughter

From Paul Watsons blog on My Space!

One would think that Canada should be getting the message by now. The rest of the world deplores this obscenity called the Canadian seal hunt.

First Russian President Vladimir Putin called it a bloody industry and shut down sealing operations in Russia then the European Parliament passed a Bill to ban all seal products and now Canada’s pathetic efforts to overturn the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act has been halted by the passing of U.S. Senate Resolution 84 on May 7th, 2009 that calls for an immediate end to the Canadian commercial seal hunt.


This historic vote came just days after the European Union voted by a huge margin to ban the import of seal products from Canada.

“The Canadian politicians are making total fools of themselves with their whining attempts to defend a barbaric industry that the rest of the world is disgusted with.” Said Captain Paul Watson


The bi-partisan U.S. Senate resolution was sponsored by Senators Carl Levin
(D-Michigan) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).

"It is truly gratifying that the U.S. Senate has passed this resolution," said Sen. Levin. "Canada needs to understand that the rest of the world will not stand by and allow this slaughter to continue. Ten countries have now either banned trade in seal products or have indicated their intentions to do so and the European Union has just enacted a prohibition on seal product trade."

Sen. Collins said, "International opinion, as well as the opinion of the vast majority of Canadian citizens, is overwhelmingly in favour of ending the Canadian seal kill. We strongly encourage the government of Canada to bring this inhumane slaughter to an end."

The resolution noted that more than one million seals have been killed during the past five years, 95 percent of them pups between 12 days and 12 weeks of age. That means that many seals were slaughtered before they had even eaten their first solid meal or taken their first swim.

With the market for seal products devastated, Canada is now considering subsidizing the kill for the sake of killing seals.


Captain Watson and the Sea Shepherd staff and crew are delighted with the passing of the Senate Resolution. “If my country wishes to host the 2010 Winter Olympics with dignity, the government must put an end to this nonsense of defending the cruelly of a massive seal slaughter that contributes nothing to the Canadian economy and is a source of extreme embarrassment to millions of Canadian.” Said Captain Watson. “Speaking as a Canadian from the Maritimes, I can only say that I have opposed this bloody obscenity all of my life and it is with anger and sadness that I have watched my government kiss the rear ends of savage baby seal killers for decades. This slaughter is a perversion and a crime against humanity and nature and it must be ended once and for all.”

Lets hope that the Canadian government will finally get the message and will not look for new markets.

Kudos to Senator Carl Levin (D-Michigan) and Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine). and lets not forget Canadian Senator, Mac Harb the only Canadian politician who has had enough guts to speak up for the seals!

One person and Still no answer from Facebook....

I am glad to have 1565 friends in Facebook again one week after i started my new account! And i am very glad that i have friends who care to realy make a difference
and fight with me sothat we can make Facebook THE BEST PLACE to make a difference!
The people at Facebook must be very busy disabling people....

I have still received no answer from Facebook but friends did...

Dear Hans, whilst I asked Maurizio Falardi, supposed to be an FB-owner for reactivating your and two accounts of other friends of mine, he answered me as follows:
"Il problema è che questi utenti sono stati disattivati la seconda volta, violando palesemente le regole imposte da FB. Non ce modo di riattivare questi account purtroppo."--------"The problem is that those peoples have been disabled for the second time because of largely violating rules and terms of FB. It is theefore, impossible to reactivate their accounts."

If you look at my one person can make a difference group in Facebook you can learn:
CONFIDENCE IS EVERYTHING! IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!
John Fitzgerald Kennedy once said:
“One person can make a difference and every person should try.” JFK was right! But he did not have Facebook!
Facebook is about you and your friends.....
But is its also one of the most powerful tools on the web if you want to make a difference! Especially with the groups and causes!
Join one person..if you make a difference! http://tinyurl.com/oneperson

Join Facebook if you want to make a difference! They have been growing very fast and very strong....they had no idea at the beginning and they still have no idea how strong Facebook can be for people who want to create change!

Yesterday i had a very nice comment on the one person can make a difference wall from a lovely woman working for Obama! You can find that kind of friends only in Facebook and LinkedIn! But Facebook is the place to be!

Great page. Good energy. Wonderful idea. Please add us to your list of friends and friendly places to make a difference. http://usa-can.net

Different Counties, Different People, Different Needs, One Voice, One President

Because Together We Really CAN!!

;-)

Together we realy can....

Confidence is everything! Impossible is nothing!

"I'm asking you to believe!
Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington...
I'm asking you to believe in yours"
Barack Obama

Barack Obama should show us that he is serious about Change and protect the polar bears! We have allready seen a few cases where the new Government did not bring the change that the endangered species and wildlife need.....

You dont need politicians to create change you need real democracy!

Governments should listen..why dont they not in Canada,not in Australia, not in the USA and not in Holland! The dutch people hate the fact that they have been fooled by the government about Afghanistan! No fighting mission..just help...

I dont believe in the politicial system not in the USA and not in Europe...as soon as great politicians rule they follow the old system..its the same everywhere!

Believe in the fact that you can make a difference!

Send Good Karma to Facebook

My account is still disabled and i still did not receive any answer from Facebook!
So i started a group to send Facebook good KARMA!

Facebook has everything it takes to be the number one community for people who want to make a difference! The only thing they dont have (yet) is compassion! But i am sure we can send them enough Good Karma to change their minds about active members who want to make a difference!

Facebook is awesome! Lets send them what they need most GOOD KARMA! Invite all your friends to send good Karma to Facebook!

Positive energy can be caused by being creative and solving problems...it will all come back to us...

Facebook needs more compassion use this group to send them some social vibes! SEND GOOD KARMA!

No application no E Card just GOOD KARMA!

You dont need a E Card or application to send GOOD KARMA! Good Karma is the only thing on this planet that is travelling with the speed of light!

All that you have to do is think about how great Facebook would be if they would not delete or disable the people who realy try to make this world a better place!

Facebook

They should take a look at the time that we spend in Facebook and the traffic we create....every hour we spend here and not in Care2, MySpace, Change.org, In Social Media, Ning and so on is CASH FOR FACEBOOK! So why would they delete the people who create real traffic and recruit thousands of people to Facebook and Causes!????

SEND GOOD KARMA NOW! And invite your friends to do the same!

20 ways to get GOOD KARMA by The Dalai Lama:

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
3. Follow the three R’s:
- Respect for self,
- Respect for others and
- Responsibility for all your actions.
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone every day.
9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and
think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
14. Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.
15. Be gentle with the earth.
16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
19. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
20. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Wouldn't it be great if Facebook would follow the three R’s:- Respect for self,- Respect for others and- Responsibility for all your actions.

I dont think that they would disable accounts the way they do if they would respect members!
I dont think that they would ignore members and dont react at all if they would respect members!
So what we Facebook needs is Compassion! Send them your good karma i have created a group in Facebook to do so and have also posted it in Care2 and Twitter!
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=109563519224
Please join and send Facebook your GOOD KARMA!

Since Facebook did not react to more than 100 messages not just by me but also by many good friends and the group that has been started to bring my account back! And since we know that they have received them its time for plan B i did what everybody told at day one come back with a new account! All that you need is a new e mail adress!
Well since i am not interested in a new account that will not let me manage all the causes and groups that i have started i did never considder that! But the only way to get the attention of Facebook is by getting realy loud!

After two weeks that they have been ignoring me completely it was time to get active so i have started a new account with my real name and old Profile Picture! I still cannot get my admin rights back and i also dont have all the notes, causes, groups, friends and photos that i have been uploading and working on for at least 500 hours! You dont delete hosts of groups without checking what they did! All that i did was thanking friends! Until the Facebook system decided hey stop sending messages to your friends you must be a spammer! Well i am no spammer but i will make a big difference with Facebook like it or not!

What can be the reason that i have allready 1000 friends in my list after less than two days....

Can it be the fact that i started so many great groups and causes?

Hans' Achievements

* 2009 Vic Bushfire Support
* Achieving Global Ecological Sustainability
* Against Animal Testing
* An End to Animal Neglect
* Animal Abuse in Greece to Stop
* Animal Liberation Front

See all of Hans' causes (113)

I will only have one Cause with my new account! Only the whaledefenders cause!

i will not add any other causes all that i need is my account back with all the admin rights! I did not just start one or two groups.....And i will start more groups just wait and see!

I have invited thousands of people to join Facebook and i see that many new users of the Causes Application start with the wildlifefoundation whaledefenders!

FACEBOOK ITS TIME TO WAKE UP REACT OR DO WE HAVE TO GET REALY LOUD?

With more than 1000 friends in Care2 Facebook and many top social media experts in my Linked In network i am sure that we can get loud if that is what it takes to get my account enabled!

The question that remains is allways the same:
Does Facebook Support ignore all of us or is it just me?
