NAME: Billy Burrell
CENSORSHIP: Account ban

What reason was given for your ban?

No reason whatsoever.

Why do you think your post(s) was censored?

Complete mistake?!

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

Yes. Zero response. I managed to get it back via a contact at a major record label. Only then could retrieve my account. I got a message from Facebook apologising and admitting it was a mistake. Disgusting that they can remove an account by mistake and it’s near impossible to get it back unless you have an ‘in’.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

Affected my whole job as a music publicist. Lost 12 years of contacts overnight.

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

The big techs own your data and don’t care about you.
