To delete or not to delete? - Page 2

post #16 of 23

I had something similar happen to me recently, but not as bad. Someone from across the country "liked" my picture and so did her friend. Then, that friend commented  on the picture, "Suzy (or whatever her name was), did you make this?" "Suzy" responded that it was not her cake and that she was just "liking" a great piece of work. So I thought that was great of her to respond that way and that was that. Then, the friend comments again, "You can make this!" I thought about what to do and talked to my husband about it. In the end, I ended up doing what you did and "hid" the comments from MY audience. Those who commented can see it and so can their "friends" but it doesn't show up on my page. I figured since they are nowhere near me, I don't need to take further action. 

 

Some people are just tactless and I hate trying to be the bigger person and wanting to be professional sometimes, but you do what you have to do for your business:/

here's a great piece of southern advice I received once:

"be the lady you should be instead of the bee itch you want to be"

...kind of hard to do sometimes though... icon_wink.gif

Unfortunately people don't always realize who can see their comments. She may have thought she was commenting on a picture that was "shared" to her friends page and only her friend could see, or she may have been tactless. Either way facebook is not as cool as it used to be. *Ugh to facebook, i am so over it.

That is true, I hadn't thought of that! If the picture was shared, she may have thought you couldn't see it! I am hoping that's what happened and someone wasn't that tactless icon_smile.gif
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I have this issue with my boyfriend's sisters all the time! One sister always expects to get something for free, or thinks she is being funny, so is always leaving comments that I find unprofessional on my page. I delete them. Plain and simple. I almost think it's harder to do that to people you know, but she just doesn't get the professionalism of a business page.  

I would delete the comments, and if she comments again, block her. Give her a chance to maybe not be a PITA.

i posted some pics of cake pops and had a 'new fan' post with arrows to her face that "<<<< ships cake pops all over the country." Clearly she was spamming my audience and trying to poach business. I deleted her comment.  To which she commented back that I was very rude for deleting her comment and that she was...gasp! unliking my page!!!.  Creep got banned then and there.  Thankfully I saw it and took care of it before too many customers saw it.  No way would I have commented or let my customers/fans see something less than professional.

I totally agree with "Delete & Ban".

I've had to do this a few times. We have almost 6000 fans on our Facebook page so naturally other businesses want to plug themselves without my permission.

I have noticed that almost every single time I get a nasty comment about something they are either a home-baker trying to plug themselves ("I can do it better, blah, blah, blah) or they are fans of a competitor (coincidence? I think not!)

I have a "disclaimer" on my page that says I have the right to delete any messages posted to our wall.

If it's a legit complaint, I don't take it down/hide from it. But if you're just being a jerk/jealous idiot, etc., you're getting banned!! :-)

Lol..you don't have to have a disclaimer for any action you take on your own page. It's your sandbox, and you hold the rights to shovel the sh*& out at will! :D
