Better Business Bureau

Earlier this week, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Their promise was that they would review my complaint, and reach out to the company that I have an issue with, Facebook. Today, I received a response back:


Thank you for contacting the Better Business Bureau. This message is in regard to your complaint submitted on 6/7/2021 against Facebook. We have accepted your complaint and have forwarded it to the business for their response. We have asked the business to reply promptly, but some disputes may take longer than others to conclude. Please be patient as we work to ensure that your concerns are addressed.


I don’t know if this will work, or if it will make any difference at all, but it seemed like it was worth a try. Sometimes, it helps to get a real life-based, old-styled authority involved when you are dealing with technology-minded individuals. It forces them to play by the rules that everybody else follows here in the real world.

The way I see it, if it worked against Freddie Krueger, it could work against Facebook, too.

  1. I must confess ignorance regarding the Freddie Krueger reference, having never seen the Elm Street movies. Did someone file a BBB complaint against Freddie Krueger, in one of the movies?

    1. It was a reference to, I think, the 2nd Nightmare on Elm Street movie where Freddie Krueger was pulled out into the real world, where he could be more easily defeated by the main characters. I was making the joke that my experience with Facebook has been a nightmare, and suggesting that the company is similar to Freddie Krueger.
