Necessary Replace –

Written by admin

Rosies, I couldn’t be extra upset to let you know this however Meta deleted my private Fb account and each my private Instagram and The Rose Desk’s Instagram. And sure, that is straight tied to after I was hacked on December 6, 2022. 

What does this imply?

This implies I misplaced 15 years of private reminiscences together with irreplaceable pictures and movies of my household in addition to my late horse Prince and canine Gabby. It makes me sick excited about it. I additionally misplaced my total private community, admin entry to The Rose Desk’s Fb web page, and eight years of Rose Desk reminiscences on Instagram, together with all of my Disney Dinners tales that had been saved as highlights. 

Why did they delete my accounts?

My Fb was hacked on December sixth and the hacker posted p***ography hyperlinks by my account for about one hour earlier than getting locked out of my account. As you realize, I used to be capable of get my account again just a few days later and I used to be informed by Meta workers that my account can be cleared of every little thing posted by the hacker. It was not. 

What’s extra is that the hacker actually stole my cash, diverting hundreds of {dollars} to a European financial institution with zero proof of id. How Fb may launch funds in another country with none proof is completely insane to me. And sure, I had two-step authentication on and no, I by no means acquired textual content messages or an opportunity to additional safe my account. I’ve been making an attempt for 3 months to get my funds again and am all the time informed “it’s getting escalated” and “we’ve let the staff know” and different placating emails that get completely nothing carried out.

I’ve since continued to recurrently get locked out of my account. I feel I’ve been locked out seven instances since December. You wouldn’t know this, as I made my sister-in-law an admin of The Rose Desk’s Fb web page as quickly as I received it again and he or she continued to submit for me each time I received locked out. Every time I used to be suspended for just a few days, it could inform me what flagged my account and each single time it was a submit from December sixth.

I used to be hysterical final month after I misplaced my promoting rights and talent to go stay in February, nonetheless because of what the hacker posted on December sixth. As you realize, I completely ADORE chatting with you guys stay and used to go stay practically each week however haven’t been ready to take action since early February. (And earlier than that, I didn’t go stay as a result of I used to be principally sick for 2 months however that isn’t Meta’s fault.) It was a thirty day suspension and I used to be excited to talk with you reside this weekend as quickly because the suspension lifted. Sadly with 5 days left, my account “was reviewed” and I used to be slapped with a 180 day suspension.

Now I used to be completely devastated as a result of I’ve LOTS of fantastic Rose Desk events arising that I needed to go stay to let you know about and positively deliberate on boosting so extra of my readers would see the events. I believed this was the worst information ever however I used to be fallacious. I awakened the subsequent morning to information that my private Fb account and each of my Instagram accounts had been disabled. I appealed the choice and heard again from Meta in 8 hours with information that they denied my enchantment and my accounts had been being completely deleted.

That is completely surprising as a result of Meta has ample documentation that I used to be hacked on December sixth and has invested an infinite amount of cash into The Rose Desk as a creator through the years. It makes zero monetary sense for them to do that to one in every of their creators when quite a few Meta workers are totally conscious that I used to be hacked and each strike towards me is from the day I used to be hacked. It additionally makes little to no sense why The Rose Desk’s Instagram account can be dragged into this when the hacker solely posted spam from my private Fb account.

I really feel completely gutted. Not solely did I lose admin entry to The Rose Desk’s Fb web page, my main social media account, not solely did I lose irreplaceable reminiscences on Instagram and each single one in every of my Instagram followers, but in addition fifteen years of my life on Fb. I’ve been the largest fan of Fb since my brother had me join in 2007, recurrently shouting my love for Fb from the rooftops. When each different creator was flocking to different social media platforms in droves, I stayed and curated hundreds of hours price of content material for Fb, amassing 208,000 followers and over 30,000,000 views final 12 months alone. I really feel so betrayed. 

The place ought to I comply with The Rose Desk now?

One of the best factor you are able to do to by no means miss Rose Desk content material is to bookmark (I submit new recipes right here each single week!) and join Rose Desk emails. I’ve been actually unhealthy about sending emails, typically solely sending possibly 4-6 a 12 months however I’m going to attempt to do not less than a month-to-month digest.

My sister-in-law nonetheless has entry to The Rose Desk’s Fb web page and is posting for me so don’t unfollow it. (Shoutout by the way in which to my ridiculously superior sister-in-law who actually texted me committing to posting 3 times a day for me principally eternally. That’s actually going above and past her SIL duties!!) Sadly she doesn’t nonetheless have full admin rights and subsequently can not give my new private account admin entry, which means I’m locked out of The Rose Desk’s Fb web page. I’m making an attempt to not less than get Meta to proper this as I’ve carried out completely nothing fallacious at any level. The considered getting locked out of my very own firm web page is completely insufferable. 

I’ve launched a brand new Instagram account for The Rose Desk: @therosetableblog. Please, please, please go comply with me there. I’ll seemingly begin doing lives on Instagram since I can’t entry my Fb web page for lives. I shall be reposting all of my Disney Dinners and praying Meta doesn’t delete that account. 

You can even comply with The Rose Desk on TikTok, Pinterest, and Twitter. I’ve quite a few Pinterest boards devoted to my events! 

Lengthy stay the Rose that rose from concrete.

The place can I watch The Rose Desk?

I do know a lot of you’re keen on my events probably the most. As of now, my sister-in-law will be capable to proceed posting on Fb for me however I’m now dwelling in terror that Meta will delete that web page too. Please subscribe to The Rose Desk on YouTube. Think about if all 208,000 of you subscribed on YouTube. That might unquestionably save The Rose Desk. I like filming these movies for you guys a lot. You will discover each get together episode, each Disney Dinner, each cooking video on YouTube in neat and tidy playlists. 

Actually you may binge my total Disney Dinners playlist on YouTube right here, starting with Frozen, the get together that began all of it:

Lots of my buddies recommended that I write a weblog submit explaining what’s happening since that is my true house on-line so I hope this helped clear every little thing up. I’ll hold you guys posted on every little thing however relaxation assured: The Rose Desk will go on. Meta can not erase my model id from the web. I cannot enable it. I cannot cease combating. I’ve spent the final eight years of my life constructing the magical world that’s The Rose Desk and nobody will take that away from me.

Get excited as a result of Disney Dinners: Indiana Jones is subsequent comply with hopefully by a Magnificence and the Beast tea get together. I’ve all kinds of thrilling issues deliberate for this 12 months. Be sure to’re following alongside to see all of it!
