Vital Replace –

Rosies, I couldn’t be extra upset to inform you this however Meta deleted my private Fb account and each my private Instagram and The Rose Desk’s Instagram. And sure, that is instantly tied to after I was hacked on December 6, 2022. 

What does this imply?

This implies I misplaced 15 years of non-public recollections together with irreplaceable photographs and movies of my household in addition to my late horse Prince and canine Gabby. It makes me sick eager about it. I additionally misplaced my whole private community, admin entry to The Rose Desk’s Fb web page, and eight years of Rose Desk recollections on Instagram, together with all of my Disney Dinners tales that had been saved as highlights. 

Why did they delete my accounts?

My Fb was hacked on December sixth and the hacker posted p***ography hyperlinks by my account for about one hour earlier than getting locked out of my account. As you recognize, I used to be capable of get my account again just a few days later and I used to be instructed by Meta staff that my account could be cleared of all the pieces posted by the hacker. It was not. 

What’s extra is that the hacker actually stole my cash, diverting 1000’s of {dollars} to a European financial institution with zero proof of id. How Fb might launch funds overseas with none proof is completely insane to me. And sure, I had two-step authentication on and no, I by no means obtained textual content messages or an opportunity to additional safe my account. I’ve been attempting for 3 months to get my funds again and am at all times instructed “it’s getting escalated” and “we’ve let the group know” and different placating emails that get completely nothing finished.

I’ve since continued to usually get locked out of my account. I believe I’ve been locked out seven instances since December. You wouldn’t know this, as I made my sister-in-law an admin of The Rose Desk’s Fb web page as quickly as I acquired it again and he or she continued to submit for me each time I acquired locked out. Every time I used to be suspended for just a few days, it might inform me what flagged my account and each single time it was a submit from December sixth.

I used to be hysterical final month after I misplaced my promoting rights and talent to go stay in February, nonetheless as a result of what the hacker posted on December sixth. As you recognize, I completely ADORE chatting with you guys stay and used to go stay practically each week however haven’t been ready to take action since early February. (And earlier than that, I didn’t go stay as a result of I used to be mainly sick for 2 months however that isn’t Meta’s fault.) It was a thirty day suspension and I used to be excited to speak with you reside this weekend as quickly because the suspension lifted. Sadly with 5 days left, my account “was reviewed” and I used to be slapped with a 180 day suspension.

Now I used to be completely devastated as a result of I’ve LOTS of wonderful Rose Desk events developing that I wished to go stay to inform you about and definitely deliberate on boosting so extra of my readers would see the events. I assumed this was the worst information ever however I used to be flawed. I awoke the following morning to information that my private Fb account and each of my Instagram accounts had been disabled. I appealed the choice and heard again from Meta in 8 hours with information that they denied my attraction and my accounts had been being completely deleted.

That is completely stunning as a result of Meta has ample documentation that I used to be hacked on December sixth and has invested an infinite sum of money into The Rose Desk as a creator through the years. It makes zero monetary sense for them to do that to one in every of their creators when quite a few Meta staff are absolutely conscious that I used to be hacked and each strike towards me is from the day I used to be hacked. It additionally makes little to no sense why The Rose Desk’s Instagram account could be dragged into this when the hacker solely posted spam from my private Fb account.

I really feel completely gutted. Not solely did I lose admin entry to The Rose Desk’s Fb web page, my major social media account, not solely did I lose irreplaceable recollections on Instagram and each single one in every of my Instagram followers, but additionally fifteen years of my life on Fb. I’ve been the most important fan of Fb since my brother had me enroll in 2007, usually shouting my love for Fb from the rooftops. When each different creator was flocking to different social media platforms in droves, I stayed and curated 1000’s of hours value of content material for Fb, amassing 208,000 followers and over 30,000,000 views final 12 months alone. I really feel so betrayed. 

The place ought to I observe The Rose Desk now?

The very best factor you are able to do to by no means miss Rose Desk content material is to bookmark (I submit new recipes right here each single week!) and join Rose Desk emails. I’ve been actually dangerous about sending emails, usually solely sending perhaps 4-6 a 12 months however I’m going to attempt to do at the least a month-to-month digest.

My sister-in-law nonetheless has entry to The Rose Desk’s Fb web page and is posting for me so don’t unfollow it. (Shoutout by the way in which to my ridiculously superior sister-in-law who actually texted me committing to posting 3 times a day for me mainly endlessly. That’s actually going above and past her SIL duties!!) Sadly she doesn’t nevertheless have full admin rights and due to this fact can not give my new private account admin entry, which means I’m locked out of The Rose Desk’s Fb web page. I’m attempting to at the least get Meta to proper this as I’ve finished completely nothing flawed at any level. The considered getting locked out of my very own firm web page is completely insufferable. 

I’ve launched a brand new Instagram account for The Rose Desk: @therosetableblog. Please, please, please go observe me there. I’ll seemingly begin doing lives on Instagram since I can’t entry my Fb web page for lives. I shall be reposting all of my Disney Dinners and praying Meta doesn’t delete that account. 

You may as well observe The Rose Desk on TikTok, Pinterest, and Twitter. I’ve quite a few Pinterest boards devoted to my events! 

Lengthy stay the Rose that rose from concrete.

The place can I watch The Rose Desk?

I do know lots of you like my events probably the most. As of now, my sister-in-law will be capable to proceed posting on Fb for me however I’m now dwelling in terror that Meta will delete that web page too. Please subscribe to The Rose Desk on YouTube. Think about if all 208,000 of you subscribed on YouTube. That may for sure save The Rose Desk. I really like filming these movies for you guys a lot. You could find each get together episode, each Disney Dinner, each cooking video on YouTube in neat and tidy playlists. 

In actual fact you’ll be able to binge my whole Disney Dinners playlist on YouTube right here, starting with Frozen, the get together that began all of it:

A lot of my associates instructed that I write a weblog submit explaining what’s occurring since that is my true residence on-line so I hope this helped clear all the pieces up. I’ll hold you guys posted on all the pieces however relaxation assured: The Rose Desk will go on. Meta can not erase my model id from the web. I can’t permit it. I can’t cease combating. I’ve spent the final eight years of my life constructing the magical world that’s The Rose Desk and nobody will take that away from me.

Get excited as a result of Disney Dinners: Indiana Jones is subsequent observe hopefully by a Magnificence and the Beast tea get together. I’ve all types of thrilling issues deliberate for this 12 months. Be sure to’re following alongside to see all of it!
