    operated before facebook. so they could go back to that.

    I'm assuming they could set up other pages on facebook not affected by the beta test if they wanted.

    how about you stop whining to facebook and do something. acting like a jerk and accuse facebook of killing dogs (which, it is literally not doing in any sense) is not going to help you gain support or solve the issue.

    facebook has no moral, legal, or business obligation to announce beta tests or gain approval for them.

      PEOPLE ARE REVERTING.

      IN THE MEANTIME DOGS ARE DYING.

      IT WOULD TAKE ONE CLICK FOR SOME FB ADMIN TO ELIMINATE THAT SUFFERING.

      ITS THAT FUCKING SIMPLE. THAT'S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT.

      You genuinely amaze me. If you believe corporations have no responsibility not to do harm, then I just have nothing more to say to you.

        it's not one click,.

        there are most likely thousands of lines of code that would need to be adjusted for the groups you care about to become special "please don't beta test me" pages.

        and no, companies do have a right not to do harm. but organizations like rescue groups have a responsibility as well. facebook is not a dog saving company. it's not a arab uprising company. it has no obligation to any particular group, be it gangdam style or liberal or conservative or animal rights. if a dog saving group wants to do its thing, it's not facebook's job to try and make it as easy as possible. facebook's number one job is to make money for investors by increasing web traffic. if this beta tests goes poorly, the update won't be made system wide. if it is, expect every page to be the same. it is not facebook's job, or obligation, or imperative to go page by page and think, well we could test it here, but they might get mad, so we won't.

        i've tried explaining how to get around the problem. i've offered a half dozen other ways to communicate for free. i've explained why facebook did what it did, and how it operates on a daily basis with beta testing. your response has been to insult. I'm done with you and any group you're affiliated with. there are many animal rights groups that don't go around insulting those who help.
