1. Facebook (as city-data) are owned websites and are allowed to create their own rules. They can shut people down or let them post. 2. WE lived outside NYC for years and loathed Guiliani. He was a bully and manipulator and he remains so. This is off topic, so I'll stop here.

Well, it seems the message he received was that his video account (not his personal page) was locked for "suspicious activity" not for violation of the TOS age restriction.

Secondly, his personal page is still open so there goes the idea that it was closed due to age.
From what I've been reading Facebook has a history of doing things like this to "certain" people. Yes, they own the website but they do not promote it as controlled by thought police.

Well good for him. I had no idea about their at least 13 rules...but it IS STILL the INTERNET. He can make his own page and figure out how to make it accessible by the internet. HTML, Javascript ...whatever he's not to young to learn about TCP IP and firewalls, either. Facebook did him a favor.

Didn't click on the link but just going off of the title of it it obviously had more to do with bad mouthing obama than hyping up the republican. If that at all. Like people said... it was shut down because he wasn't supposed to be on it. Too young. Then he lies and whines to media it had something to with what he posted
I love how the compassionate left loves to call people names and go negative even on a child.

If Facebook didn't close the FB page, but did just disable the video, you do have to wonder why.

It seems it has happened in the past.

I cannot stand when adults discourage independent young thinkers like this.
Leaders don't go "play with their friends" when they have something to say.
They express their opinions, whether it's the popular opinion or not.
I commend this kid.
Too bad almost all of our "freedoms" to speak openly are gone though.

Btw I hate Fakebook

FYI..This is Facebook who monitor's you're postings (more than you even know) right? You complain about allowing intrudings of whatever is being posted by an Internet Company/Advertisings> But yet want to shift your definitions of intrusive postings???..fine and dandy..To each their own I guess..BUT ya can't have it both ways??
BUT, then when they allow horrific desseminations of things..You all complain too?? Just what is it you want?? Let it all hang out? ..or keep any and all offensive postings...What about terroristic postings, IN/OUT?? Make up your mind, because for one it means nothing and for another it's totally offensive...Just asking?

ETA~~ Isn't there some button you push to complain about offensive postings?? Sure..and IF million complain..What do you expect them to do?? Just asking....ALL is NOT controlled by Govt.. tho know that will fall on deaf ears LOL

Bullbleep. Plenty of his critics even admit that he was a highly-effective mayor.

OP, how could you support something like this? Someone broke the rules by creating an underage facebook account. End of story.

It seems you're suggesting that it's OK to break the rules (even rules created for child safety) as long as they're doing so to promote a particular political agenda. You and your anarchist buddies need to build your own social network if you want to promote this kind of activity. Piggybacking on a multi-billion dollar marketing company for free and complaining when they shut you down is pathetic false victim-hood. If you honestly believe that the free market isn't providing enough opportunities for children to engage in political discourse, provide an alternative.

The way is works is, Facebook allows the public to REPORT someone's post/page. THEN they immediately yank it.

So any group can gang up onto someone they don't like or who they feel broke the terms of service that Facebook has in place.

Private industry has no qualms about censoring and controlling what is posted on their electronic property. They can enforce restrictions that none of us would tolerate coming from a government. This is just the way thing are and there is little or nothing that can be done.

I have always realized that I have lost my Constitutional right to free speech when I walked into an employer's door. I do not think this is proper but as I needed the money I played by the arbitrary rules.
