Petition Tag - facebook
I started this petition because I am sick of facebook blocking me from sending friends requests. Sometimes I get blocked even if I haven't sent any requests.
How are we supposed to become friends with someone or even get to know them if we get blocked from sending friends requests to people we don't know?! That's the point to becoming friends, send a request!
It has come to mind that the 3 best wii games, RPG games and overall games of the last few years are missing several things; the first is portability, the second multiplayer, and the 3rd DLC; should you want to have XENOBLADE CHRONICLES, PANDORAS TOWER or THE LAST STORY on 3DS, simply sign this petition.
Anything is possible, so just because you sdon't think they will run on the 3ds (and they WILL) doesn't mean you cant sign it!
Before I say anything please realise that this is NOT a petition against Facebook as an organisation, I am merely making this petition in order to protect its users.
Many people have been shocked to watch a video of a woman being decapitated slowly and painfully with a knife by a group of terrorists. I am unsure of what origin this video is from or which terrorist group it is from, all I know is that the person who posted it was a "Facebook-famous" boy called 'Freddy Guidi.'
I did some further research and found a page which defined "Beheading videos" claiming that "You don't see these videos anymore; terrorists have realized that this doesn't help their cause." I wish that this was true.
As I said earlier, I have nothing at all against Facebook as an organisation! I love Facebook and I don't know where I’d be without it for entertainment, a place where I can talk to all of my friends for free! I made this petition in order to keep its users safe. The thought of my 13 year old sister being able to watch that video horrifies me! I came across the video after I watched my close friends face turn from a mixture of horror and disgust to uncontrollable sobbing when she had found it on her news feed and started to watch it whilst I was still on webcam to her. I was also able to access this video and only managed to watch half of it before feeling faint, sick and tearful...neither of us had been subscribed to this Facebook Famous boy. The fact that I was one of many to report it and post an angry comment also sadly means that my activity would have shown up on all of my Facebook friend's news feeds.
Now here comes the shocking part... I reported it only to receive this message after Facebook had checked it;
“You reported Freddy Guidi's video for containing graphic violence.
Status- Video not removed
Details- Thanks for your report. We reviewed the video you reported, but found it doesn't violate Facebook's Community Standard on graphic violence, which includes depicting harm to someone or something, threats to the public's safety, or theft and vandalism."
As a loyal Facebook user for the past 3 years, I am convinced that this is some kind of mistake. However, the friend who I mentioned before and several other friends had also reported this video, only to receive the same message in return.
My friends and I are all shocked from the graphic horror displayed on our Facebook news feeds. Children as young as 13 are allowed to sign up for Facebook accounts, if Mark Zuckerberg himself saw what was posted on his successful website then I’m sure he’d feel the same way as I do about this situation. This may be a spark of terrorism and there may be more and worse to come on more and more social networking websites.
We must remove this gross, horrific act from public! Facebook is somewhere for people to enjoy themselves, not to be exposed to videos of acts of grotesque violence inflicted on innocent people, some of which, according to that website, are civilians.
Sign the petition to “Remove violent beheading terrorist threat videos off Facebook for good” today!
Facebook has been blocking users for just using their Accounts and claiming they are using them to fast and or using them not as they had been meant to be used.
For years people have got away with creating fake profiles on facebook and social media.
Twitter started verifying them which fixed all false profiles.
When is Facebook going to?
Unless you were born or live in a city recognized by Facebook, the place and your history does not exist.
To accurately reflect a person's profile and identity Facebook needs to allow a person to name the city, town or village from whence they come.
At present, on Facebook, you can be added to groups without your knowledge or consent. A notification will be sent to you, but if you don't notice it you can discover that you're in groups that you do not endorse.
People are often added to ideological groups whose views they oppose to inflate their numbers, or for political mileage.
Text has a way of inhibiting communication. While efficient and utilitarian, text just lacks emphasis. I would have italicized emphasis, um, for emphasis, but I can't do that. I also can't do that on Facebook.
Zynga Farmville has currently banned the "Send" button in the market. This means you are UNABLE to send gifts using farm-cash in the game to anyone.
You can still buy items for your own farm but you are NOT able to send to others.
EL VENADO DE CARLOS DEXTER
Fans of the online Facebook game "Solitaire Blitz" have been supporting this game since its inception. And now the creators of the game, PopCap Games, have revised the format for cash profit.
The faithful fans want the old version brought back without the requirement for money or the adding of friends in order to continue.

While Jason U was an employee at PMG Refiners, he had two Facebook pages, namely https://www.facebook.com/pmgrefiners and https://www.facebook.com/PMGRefiner. When he left the company, he SHUT DOWN and DELETED both of these pages in August 2012.
All his intellectual posts, contact information and personal donation information are on these pages from 10 September 2011 to 5 August 2012.
These pages have been reopened on 12 November 2012 BY SOMEONE ELSE.
Since all Jason’s content are still on both PMG Refiners pages, it is his intellectual property which are now being misappropriated. As a result of this violation, he is suffering personal injury.
Both pages and content on the pages have been reported numerously to Facebook since 12 November 2012, yet no action steps have been taken.
Facebook NEED TO RENDER MORE SUPPORT TO ITS USERS, and HAVE TO TAKE ACTION to PERMANENTLY REMOVE the content from 10 September 2011 to 5 August 2012 from both PMG Refiners pages.
Wolves are being indiscriminately killed in British Columbia, and under the pretext of "Wildlife Management"!
So-called "conservationists" are killing wolves, even machine-gunning entire packs from helicopters, based on the claim that they are reducing caribou herds; however, loss of habitat is a far more probable cause. Natural ecosystems are self regulating and wolves play a vital role in them.
There is also an increase in the slaughter of wolves to protect livestock on private and public land with insufficient attention to alternative measures such as improved farming practices and animal husbandry.
Wolves are killed for sport and their body parts used as trophies; this is an abhorrent activity and wasteful use of wildlife.
Wolves deserve wilderness habitat in which to live a natural pack life, unmolested.
Humans are the greatest threat to healthy wolf populations, and it's our responsibility to be a voice for these wild animals and the wilderness in which they live.
Zynga have reported as from December 5th 2012 Vampire Wars will be shutdown.
The above news has come as a huge shock to most fans of the game (over 3000000), not only have we enjoyed and loved the game, we say we have gained new friends and allies along the way, most players have dedicated 6+ years to the game, these players are our admins our mentors and our friends, so much time and dedication has been spent, not to mention money spent for those who have believed in the game with much heart.
There are literally thousands of groups on FACEBOOK dedicated to promoting VAMPIRE WARS and the players, community groups that inevitably bring this big family together in as well as outside of the game. Such passion and enjoyment from a simple game is inspiring, thousands log in daily to play, not only are their facebook walls drowned in achievements earned playing the game but also their pictures are dedicated to VAMPIRE WARS in one form or another, should this not be a huge accomplishment and celebration for Zynga at least?
No respect or consideration was provided by Zynga to their players regarding shutdown, a mere popup on our game that hit us like a kick to the stomach or worse a knife to our hearts for many.
I ask you all to sign the petition, share with everyone who knows you, we may not be able to save our game but one thing is known, we are fighters we will forge together an alliance, a mighty clan who wont give up on their game. our game so easy.
Facebook is the most used social network on the world wide web today with an average of approximately 1.01 Billion users per month. It's used to advertise, reconnect with family and friends as well as campaign for any political office.
Why not go one step further and allow the American people to cast the vote on Voting day via Facebook. You can pay bills, watch, television, go to school and so many other things via the Internet, why not make it easy for someone to cast their vote for their candidate via a secure app on Facebook.
There are so many Facebook users that would love to vote but for various reasons may not be able to physically get out to do it. Facebook would give them that chance. Facebook was flooded during the presidential debates. Imagine if every one of those users were able to cast their vote and really take part of their American Right. The turnout would be tremendous. The American voice would definitely be heard.
AT&T has decided to violate the U.S. Internet rules by limiting use of Apple Inc's FaceTime application to certain customers.
Other known public interest groups have filed complaints with the FCC about this (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/18/us-att-facetime-idUSBRE88H1DP20120918).
AT&T should give all customers who pay for its mobile Internet service the option to use any Internet application they want to use regardless of which data plan they buy.
I believe that Facebook should pay its Facebook fan page account holders because without users liking pages there would be no Facebook.
I feel this way because they advertise on your fan page and they keep all the money and you get nothing.
R.I.P Eddie Murphy was set up on Facebook after a sick minded person on twitter hoaxed that the celebrity died in a snowboarding incident.
We want Facebook to remove this page as it is very offensive to fans and the man himself.
We the undersigned are asking Mark Zuckerberg to allow ANYONE to use messanging wether friend or not on Facebook!
A Belizean Native, Evan Partis, also known as "Bev", is seeking support from his fellow Belizeans, Friends, loved ones, and Politicians.
Anyone who knows this man, or is familiar with his story, knows that he deserves his freedom.
On FaceBook, there are perfectly lovable accounts made by nerdy people, and they're accounts made for roleplaying as one's favorite character from whatever movie or TV show that they are most nerdy about.
Supporters of these accounts (aka those who have such an account and/or hold at least one dear on their "friends" list) lovingly refer to them as "roleplayers", "FaceBook roleplayers", "RP's", or "FBRP's". But in the eyes of those against these accounts (tattletales and FB itself), we/they should be counted as "fake accounts".
I am a supporter, and I belong in the "and" section. I have a separate account as Jessie from the Toy Story series, and I hold many roleplayers on both of my "friends" list very, very dear to my heart. Recently, someone threatened to report and ban my favorite roleplayer of Timon from the The Lion King series, and I was absolutely heartbroken. This wouldn't have been the first time one of my roleplayer friends had been permanently force-deleted, either.
I know that there are some people who hide behind anonymity to do truly terrible things to others, but I think that there should be true proof that that's what someone's doing before they ban somebody. One example would be a screenshot that can be proved to be 100% unedited.
UPDATE: The photo you see as the petition photo was the exact photo that was the profile picture of the Timon roleplayer I mentioned. I cannot currently message him, see his wall, or see his profile picture, as he temporarily deleted his account by choice in response to the threats. He's back on, but I still don't have the ability to talk to him. I really am heartbroken about that.
I am a breastfeeding mother first and foremost. I am a huge lactivist, I attend support groups, nurse ins, I nurse in public, and recently completed breastfeesing peer counselor training.
Recently I was blocked from Facebook, because of breastfeeding photos. Obviously this isn't the first time it has happened to me, nor the first time it has happened to other nursing mommies. In other situations, Facebook has stated breastfeeding photos "violate" their rights because the ENTIRE breast is exposed. It is IMPOSSIBLE to expose an entire breast while breastfeeding. Facebook talks about "their" rights. What about the rights of breastfeeding mothers? What about the rights of our nursing children? How are our rights not violated?
There are more "offensive" photos on Facebook, yet those "half naked men and women" photos have 15,000 likes. We as breastfeeding mothers and our supporters have not only an obligation to ourselves but to our children.
Breastfeeding is a normal, natural and beautiful thing and its about time Facebook realizes that!
The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 was introduced in response to various incidents involving particular breeds.
These incidents received huge tabloid attention and public concern over the keeping and breeding of all dogs which were classed as the same type.
The following breeds which are of pedigree or crossed with are now classed as Dangerous Dogs
Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasileiro.
It's been going on for centuries in the mountain range villages of Bulgaria. Clear evidence of the unsurpassed, undying evil genius of the Bulgarian Homo Rapiens.
Instead of placing scarecrows, poor, defenseless dogs are regularly tied up by the villagers with a short, rusty chain to a post in the wilderness, near someone's ranch, to scare away predators. The chain leaves for little or no movement on the muddy ground.
Soiled in their urine and feces, frustrated, left without food or water for days in the scorching 40 C heat, exposed to predators, unable to fight or run, uncared for, unwanted, untreated and forgotten, they die in agony and terror from thirst, starvation, disease, or their wounds if attacked and mutilated by the raving beasts.
This kind of abuse is common and widespread. Despite the numerous tragic reports of dogs who have suffered and died in such despicable conditions, nothing has been done by the regulatory authorities or the police to amend the situation or punish those responsible.
This kind of animal neglect should never happen. But when it does, it must be exposed and stopped.
Just yesterday, Roiworld.com changed its commenting system to Facebook comments.
This petition is against the use of the Facebook comments as many find it useless, unsafe and just plain stupid.
Since the change many members have expressed their disliking to the new system in countless forums and challenges, with no result what so ever from roiworld.
This petition will hopefully show roiworld that the members of roiworld are completely and utterly against the new system of commenting.
This site has been set up to make so called 'jokes' about dead babies. This page, however, makes reference to sexual content with children, rape, racial comments/jabs and allows users to upload pictures of dead babies on its page. There are pictures of dead babies in bins, pictures of children with disabilities running and so called funny comments attached.
The majority of people on facebook do not like this page, yet its numbers continue to grow and facebook still appear to be doing nothing about this. Why? There is no child protection to stop children of any age accessing this pages. My self and others believe that pages and their content should be approved and have strict security to ensure children cannot access this horrific content. It is also a very disrespectful page for women and families who have suffered the loss of a child as this has been reported to facebook previously.
Myself and others would like this page deleted by facebook once and for all and to make facebook pages more secure for it's users.

In August 2005 - A TWISTED teacher jailed for downloading 11,000 vile images of children is masterminding a website for paedophiles from behind bars. Disgraced chemistry tutor Nigel Oldfield, 44, plays “agony uncle” to perverts who log on to the site, which justifies paedophile activities and demands sex with children be made legal. The site also advises paedophiles on how to download child abuse images without being caught.
Now released not only does the pro-paedophile ex-teacher still run blog's for that give advice to other paedophiles but he spends a great deal of time harrassing survivors of child sexual abuse on facebook, by using fake profiles. This man is a clear danger to children and should get a immediate internet ban
Oldfield was arrested in August 2002 after a shopper saw him taking pictures of children in Sheffield’s Meadowhall shopping centre. Police then discovered child porn images on computers at his flat in Doncaster. Oldfield, was head of science at a Derbyshire school in the summer of 2002 when, over a three-week period, he collected abusive images of children/babies in several 18-hour internet sessions.
He set up the website, which the Mirror has chosen not to name, while out on licence after serving eight months for possessing child abuse images. The site was axed in May by internet service providers after a police probe and Oldfield’s probation team ordered he return to prison. But now he has managed to restart it and Oldfield is in contact with fellow perverts on the running of the website, which offers a mobile number and an email address to offer one-to-one “support”.
He is also campaigning to lower the age of consent to 12, and to legalize indecent images of children
And now he is back to his old tricks !

Sometimes on facebook you see a dumb post or comment. We need an additional way to express the stupidity of our friend(s).
In summery it's a good way yo sum up things on facebook and make things easeyer on facebook.
