“Jason Bassler — co-founder of The Free Thought Project — made a post to his Facebook account delivering the news that The Free Thought Project (3.1 million followers) and Police the Police (1.9 million fans) were both unpublished. Bassler said the move by Facebook destroyed five years of work.
‘Yes, you read that correct. After 5 years of hard work, literally working 7 days a week to share information and build fans Facebook has officially unpublished our page The Free Thought Project (3.1 million fans) as well as Police the Police (1.9 million fans) so we can’t post on it anymore. It is still live on their site, but we can no longer control it or post on it. This is truly an outrage. I’ve put up with a lot of shit over the years with facebook, but this crosses the fucking line. We will do everything we can to recover our pages and fight back against this.'”
And they were one of the lucky ones, their page is still live, but they can’t post or control it. Other pages just vanished.
