Social Media

I never intended for this blog to be a platform for pissing and moaning and griping about things that are “wrong” with this new world in which we live…

…but the gaul of the powers that be at Face Book really give me no choice in the matter.

Night before last I was made aware of an interesting FB group called “Addicted to The Haves and the Have Nots.”

I am really enjoying being on that show (not to mention all the attention I am getting now as the new “Bad Man” on the block now that JR has gone on to his reward – Larry was a delight BTW. Great guy) so I decided to request admission to the group so I could play around in there.

It took about 30 seconds for the administrator to let me in. It’s good to be Jim!

It was a blast! Thanking people for their supp[ort of the show… teasing them about how their expectations will be exceeded and how  no matter what they think ins going to happen on the season finale next week that they are wrong…

Fun stuff. Kind of like a cyber personal appearance without the cold hot dogs!

So… the next morning I wake up only to find that Face Book has decided that I am not me.

Face Book being such a huge company couldn’t possibly be wrong so I wonder who I am if not me?

Anyway…

Their cavalier decision didn’t end there… no. They didn’t contact me or ask me any questions… they deleted all of my accounts and pages with the push of a button.

Nice guys, huh?

So now my weight loss groups and my fan pages and my link to my blog and my etc. etc. etc. are no longer.

I responded to their email telling me that they had done this with a scan of my valid Passport.

They said it wasn’t enough to prove that it was me.

I sent a photo of my license.

So far… no dice.

If they still respond in the negative I won’t pursue it any further. I will wipe the dust of FB from my heels forever and continue writing here and tweet the occasional tweet.

All that to say…

Do you think it’s right for the holders of the switches that control the power of a public platform the size and stature of Face Book should be able to negate years worth of work and association both personal and business with the flip of a switch without any warning to those that said flip switching will effect the most?

Judge Jim Cryer spotted in Savannah today! Good thing he got out of there before the trolly reached him! I hear Candice is driving!!

On a happier and not so pissy/grumpy note… here is a pic of the “not-so” Honorable Judge Jim Cryer in front of his office earlier today:

I love Savannah. Such a beautiful city!

It’s called the Haves and Have Nots Discussion Grouphttps://www.facebook.com/groups/255876704581882/ and I’m really sad to hear this about Facebook just deleting you like this. Many of your castmates had joined as well and it would be and would have been a great wonder if you had or will join us. Please don’t lose hope in facebook for us fans Love You John. You’re a wonderful actress and you inspire me. I know you’re really mad but please don’t give up John.

    A Fan That’s Truly Yours,

  6. Loving you and the cast. I’m addicted to the show. Maybe Facebook was jealous because you were socializing with the little people Facebook needs to get it together ASAP. There a lot of addicts that will soon be filling complaints.

  7. You have definitely made the character, Jim Cryer, your own. As a member of “Addicted to The Haves and the Have Nots”, I am so sorry that you have been cut off from a forum that genuinely appreciated you dropping in and seeing our love of the show. I do hope that FB understands the error that was made and that they get you back on as quickly as possible. I have a feelings us fans are going to make it hard for them to just not do nothing. ;-)

  8. Second attempt, first comment failed to post:
    When you have an issue that you can do nothing about except fuss and fume, the best thing is to leave it in someone else’s hands(God has done the best job for me.) Then look around, find someone in need, and just be a blessing. Call a friend who needs encouragement, find someone who would get a big lift just from you sharing your time and talent. It’s easy to start, you just say:” God this is your problem, you know all about it, I cast my care,” and really forget it; don’t worry or even talk about it. Then when it all works out, just be thankful . I’ll be glad to know how this works out, or if you even see this.
    Thanks for everything
    Charlene
