Last night I got a message from Facebook saying that, as my Timeline had been used to promote my books, it was a business and had to be changed to a fan page or similar. I was unable to access my Timeline or contact FB, so in the end I allowed it. I had no choice. I then tried to change it back, but they require official ID which I do not have for my pen name. I was unable to PM friends or readers but luckily a good friend posted the message on his Timeline. I know of two people who were very hurt and upset because they thought I had blocked them. Unforgivable of FB. I do hope there are no more. I have not blocked anyone at all.
I tried for hours last night to contact FB. There is no appeal as I consented to the change (catch 22) They will NOT answer emails so I have had no choice but to create a new ID, www.facebook.com/nell.brown.353. I can only hope that this reaches all my friends and readers. Please ask to friend me as I have no wish to spend time in FB jail for requesting people to friend me who then click that they do NOT know me outside of FB.
I have had help from so many of my friends and I want to thank you for making this horrible experience more bearable.
