Facebook Fail?

Recently, I mentioned starting a Facebook fan page with Gina; Gym.Tanning.Laundry (GTL).

As of this moment, 4:10 PM, February 4th, 2010, the page has attracted 18,432 fans. In less than a month…pretty cool, huh? Well, not so much. I’ve lost my administrator privileges. My publishing rights have been blocked by FB.

A couple of days ago, I received an email from FB asking me to confirm my affiliation with the site. Below is the email.

“Our records indicate that you are currently the admin of a Facebook Page with a large number of fans, Gym.Tanning.Laundry (GTL). To ensure a positive user experience, we require admins of large Pages to confirm their affiliation with the brand, business, person, or entity that their Page represents. Please use the following link to authenticate your Page.”

So, I did. I attempted to authenticate the GTL fan page. What a Facebook Fail. Our friends at FB sent me a second email.

“The Page “Gym.Tanning.Laundry (GTL)” has had its publishing rights blocked because it violates our Pages Terms of Use”

Damn son…. That sucks! Haha. However, I’ve learned a little bit about FB Fan Pages and Insights. So, no love lost here.

Originally, Gina and I began this fan page because we heard the GTL moniker while watching an episode of the MTV reality show, Jersey Shore. We both thought it was clever and a great catchphrase.

Onto the next I suppose…

We’re all good. You know me, I’m all GTL. Gym, Tan, Laundry.

Reality TV can spark the strangest thoughts and ideas.

When Gina and I heard this quote “GTL. Gym, Tan, Laundry”, on MTV’s Jersey Shore, we immediately thought it was a catchy slogan and ridiculously clever. Well, the “GTL. Gym, Tanning, Laundry”, Facebook fan page was born.

This page is somewhat of a social media experiment and to better understand online trends and insights, I continue to administer this Facebook fan page.

—Enjoy, OB1
