What to do when Facebook deletes itself

What to do when Facebook deletes itself

In this weeks episode, Shaa talks about how her Facebook and Instagram accounts got hacked … and then deleted – and the ongoing saga she’s having to recover them. As of this episode, there’s been no resolution. It’s the type of thing we feel happens to other people … until it happens to us.

Shaa shares the dangers that many of us face when building our businesses on rented ground – you don’t own these platforms, you’re just borrowing them. It’s been a sharp lesson that these platforms are more Faceless than Facebook. No accountability, no customer service, no response. A wake up call for us all.

What you'll learn:


Two factor authentication is no guarantee of safety. Despite having this supposedly strong security measure enabled, access was still gained by hackers.


Despite what we may believe, we do not own our social media presence. It can be taken away. This becomes unfortunately clear when unauthorised access occurs.


This experience has demonstrated that while social media can be useful in terms of reaching your audience, it should never be our only avenue of earning money.
