FaceBook

I was just on the Havanese Forum Face Book page. Someone is advertising their puppies-I had thought Havanese Forum would not allow someone to post puppies for sale.
We try so hard to educate people to find the good breeders-who health test their dogs-has this stopped??

Pat, I just read about that myself. I don't know how this happened, either. Maybe HF should take their FB page down if there is no way to control that. That is upsetting because I feel the HF is still trying to educate people to go to reputable breeders and I would hate to see that FB page to ruin our name.

If you see a post on there advertising for pups I think you can use the selection tool on the left hand side and 'report as spam', the same way we do here for the trolls.

I can't find the post where the advertising occured to start the bickering, can someone go flag it?

I wish I could be on FB to police it more, but if we all report the posts as soon as we see them, someone can go remove it.

Don't let one spoiled post ruin the many, many helpful and friendly posts that are on there, I can't see taking it down when there are other useful tips and fun picture sharing going on, we shouldn't let some troll come and try to shut us down. Also, its silly to say that we as a group condone anything harmful towards our breed, that is like saying that we condone illegal Viagra and pharmaceutical sales and cheap ipods, louis vuittons and the other silly crap that the trolls come and post for sale on here (thank you to all who report these posts!!!) Seems like they are like flies, though. You smack one down and four more come post the next day.

This is the internet, we can't control every person with online access, sadly.

This is not the first time this type of thing happens in the HF facebok group. It is my opinion that if, for any reason, the 4 administrators of the facebook HF group can't be there every day cheching on these things then the group should be closed or the name should be changed. There are many people in that facebook group that don't visit the forum and are not aware of what we believe and try to promote. So really, that facebook group should not have Havanese Forum in its name. Just my opinion.

I didn't even realize that there was a Facebook page. So, I did learn something new. As to changing the name (although wouldn't that still be an issue?) or shutting it down, I have no opinion since I didn't even know about it. I'll have to check it out.

Thumper,
Did not mean for you to take down the Face Book-just wanted the puppy ad gone. It seems to be because I could not find it this AM. We all work very hard to educate people about good breeding-the need for health testing-the need to study and make a educated decision when getting a dog-I just never want that education to stop. I want our breed loved and cherished and each new owner to love their Havie's as much as we do.

I wasn't directing that statement at you, sorry if it came across that way. I just don't think an occasional spam should overshine the sharing of tips and pictures.

I disagree. I am not a Facebook person, I barely go there and may read my newsfeed once every few weeks, the moderators are not the solely responsible for every post on this forum nor are we responsible for every post on the FB page. Every member here has a voice for our breed, anyone can speak up against the BYB's and are encouraged to report any post they see so we can get it off quickly.

IF someone here is on Facebook on a regular basis and would like the job of policing it, please send me a convo and I can talk to the other mods and admin about hiring a few Facebook police (the pay is pretty much havanese kisses)

We are open to suggestions to help clean up the FB page, it is a great resource for many people who do not like the forum format.

Ok, I went to the page and signed up. Most of the photos tab show puppies for sale. Perhaps someone can change the wording

For members of the Havanese Forum, and all Havanese Lovers!
Come sign up with Havaneseforum.com the only Havanese forum on the net today with over 7,000 members and counting!

Perhaps someone can add the wording that listing puppies for sale will be hidden as spam?

Donnie, Momo and Ume's mom and loving it!

The folks at HT picked up on this very fast. They mentioned it on FB also.

To be truthful I didn't realize that this was specifically a Havanese Forum FB page. I am just dumb I guess.
