The pet rat form I was on closed down for FB- I hate the facebook for forum style things
The lack of search and the willingness of people to break the rules

The new Animals selling ban on FB might drive traffic back.

First I heard of that. FB banned selling animals there? Yeah, that will come as a blow to some people, I would expect.

Yeah, seems real to me....

Commerce Policy

Items, products or services sold on Facebook must comply with our Community Standards as well as the Commerce Policies. Sale of the following is prohibited on Facebook:
  1. Illegal, prescription or recreational drugs;
  2. Tobacco items and related paraphernalia;
  3. Unsafe supplements;
  4. Weapons, ammunition or explosives;
  5. Animals;
  6. Adult items or services;
  7. Alcohol;
  8. Adult health items;
  9. Real money gambling services;
  10. Goods, items or posts that we determine may be or are fraudulent, misleading, deceptive or offensive;
  11. Items or products with overtly sexualized positioning;
  12. Non-physical items are prohibited on Facebook Marketplace, including but not limited to services, subscriptions, digital products, or rentals.

I imagine this will knock the feet out from under a lot of people who have been using their FaceBook pages to sell their animals.

I think so far it is just enforced on Facebook Marketplace. I wonder if they even consider snakes as animals???

I've seen rescue groups bring up the animal sale ban and are reporting all animal sales they see, primarily in relation to dogs/puppies, etc, but many have the AR mentality, and I don't expect them to leave other animal groups alone.

Well, if it were me, and my entire business revolved around selling animals on FaceBook, I think I would be pretty darn concerned about it. From what I have seen, FaceBook will yank pages without warning and without offering any recourse. Lord knows I have had to yank some pages myself from people engaging in trademark infringement over there.

I removed a couple of forums that were unused, and am still looking at a couple of others. The following are on the chopping block:

Photography Techniques and Equipment
Other Animals and Related Items Wanted

Of course, with only seven (7) posts made on this entire site in the past 24 hours, perhaps I am just trying to weatherproof the deck chairs on the Titanic.

I'm really sad to hear this.

For the record I've had a busy spring and haven't been on Facebook much either. This is still the best corn snake community in the world.
