To all our Facebook friends – We have a good news!
After a few email communications, a few online forms to complete and a little help from a Facebook member of staff, we are pleased to announce that we are back on Facebook!
After 14 days of being inactive, Diethylstilbestrol, Journal of a DES Daughter Facebook page is live again so is the account used to administer the page.
So what happened?
Facebook, the successful social media platform where, in just a few months, we connected with more than 200 fans, 330 friends and DES activists from around the world, disabled our account on Wednesday 07th September without any warning nor explanations. As a result our page became inactive and inaccessible.
We were devastated by this action which made disappear in just a click 6 months of hard work to help raise awareness of the DES drug tragedy. Not everybody likes Facebook, but this platform is a great tool for us not only to keep up to date with the most recent DES Action Groups news and updates but to connect with other DES victims and spread the word about the DES side effects which affect millions of people around the world.
As if it wasn’t bad enough it could not have happened at a worst time when DES victims like myself were eager to read, share and comment on the fate of 53 DES Daughters currently battling in court in Boston, USA to condemn pharmaceutical companies for their responsibilities in their breast cancer associated with DES exposure.
On Wednesday 21st September 2011, Facebook emailed us back to say: “After investigating this further, it looks like we suspended your account by mistake. We are sorry for the inconvenience.” We are thrilled that the problem has now been solved and access to our facebook page has been restored.
Thank you for your kind comments and messages of support whilst we were busy trying to fix this issue. Please encourage your friends to like us on Facebook!
