Advice/Help with social media.

I am hoping that this does not offend any of the admin team or break any of the site rules.

I am after a bit of advice with regards Facebook. I would like to join a certain closed group that discuss subjects very similar to those that are found on this site (Trying to be diplomatic here by not actually naming the group).
When I search for the group using my Facebook profile nothing is found, it is as if the site is being blocked. However if I do the search using the same titles on my wife's or friend's Facebook profile the group is readily found. Do you know why this is occurring/what I am doing wrong?

I need to actually find the group so that I can submit a request to join.

I am new to this social media stuff and not finding it that easy.

I still intend to use this Forum but it would be nice to see what is also being discussed on the 'other' site.

Regards

Andy

When I click on the link I get - 'This content is currently unavailable'

So I think for some reason it is still being blocked.

Forget the link go to FB and type in rhibs that'll get you to the opening home page where you press request button.

That still does not work using my Facebook page although it works when using it on the wifes page - anyone got any any ideas why my page seems to be blocking the search?

No idea, the above link works for me on my phone (and I am not a member of that group) - takes you to a join link. if you use chrome as your browser you could try incognito mode, other browsers possibly have a similar feature.

Failing that if your wife can join can she invite you from "the inside"?

As a photographer many social media sites have caused many photographers to become unemployed. Any content on these sites is deemed copyright free ( not websites).

If I wanted to copy word for word as well as copy photos from these sites I would legally be allowed to (worldwide).

People say they would never use anyone's work without asking, these are normally general everyday people with some scruples. Big companies and news corporations will have no problem using content without giving any credit what so ever.

Not sure how that helps the OP?

However I'd also be interested to know if you can show where the law changed (perhaps some case law?) and how the law makes a distinction between social media and other websites.

If someone decides to use references to "the Law" to hold up a leg on their hobby horse then they should be able to follow up their assertions with more than wishful thinking. I'm fairly sure if some tw@twaffle began banging on about how 2 strokes were illegal in the EU we would be quick to ask for evidence.

Posts containing an obvious opinion/IMO/IMHO don't need any support with facts or references - but if the Law is being used to make a point then I think it's fair that the poster should be able to support their assertion with facts.

All IMHO of course. Also I would politely refer you to the RIBnet Posting guidelines - some of which I quote below for both your and the other posters information:

Treat the admin team nicely
The admin team are your hosts. They volunteer a substantial amount of their time to keep the forums running smoothly and deserve your respect. If you post inappropriately then your posts may be edited or removed without notice. Please don't argue the toss, it's very unlikely to help. Please also bear in mind that most of the time the admin team will be posting as regular RIBnet members and not as moderators. You don't have to agree with them, but normal standards of courtesy are expected from both sides..

I hope Im not sticking my neck out too much ..but I was interested in JonP’s comment and also Poly asking for verification..because I think it does affect everyone who uses the internet Matt ..and that includes users of Rib net.

To explain why.....

I used to post a few of my adventures on here and also on other websites on the net. Lately I have stopped.. you may wonder why ?

Its mainly because I accidentally stumbled across an Author’s website ..advertising their books. They had “lifted” not only my photographs..but also my written words and used them to Illustrate the setting for their latest novel. In other words ..they are using my artistic creation without my permission..to promote their product..and an Author and publisher should know better ? It was put on their web site three years ago..although I only just discovered this year..so am not pursuing it

So that is why I was interested in JonP’s statement and Poly asking for reference.

For clarification..it was a report on a Hill walking Adventure of mine..which I posted on another website..not Ribnet. But because of that author.. I have stopped posting adventures on websites.. so it does affect Ribnet and every other internet site.


I appreciate its going off topic of the OP's post ..so apologise to the OP..Im only offering this to show some folks are interested in the things coming to surface in this thread

Sounds like you've been blocked from that page for some reason.
