A couple of weeks ago Tsu users around the world woke up to the realisation that they could no longer share links to their Tsu content on Facebook or Instagram.
What do you do when Facebook blocks you, well not much. I have been reporting what has been happening since this unfair action was taken, along with Tsu’s very own Eileen Brown who writes for Zdnet made waves with a great article in support of the Tsu Social Network
Is Facebook afraid of social network rival Tsu?
Tsu has 4.2 million users, while Facebook has over 1.4 billion. Yet the social networking Goliath has apparently stopped allowing Tsu users to post items to Facebook and has removed all historical posts and links referring to the site.
On September 25, users of social network site Tsu discovered that they could no longer post items to Facebook or Instagram mentioning the URL “Tsu.co”. Tsu users and employees reported these blocks to Facebook and Instagram. Tsu users commented across the platform that there was an issue.
A few days later the Tsu api to Facebook was shut down. Error messages referred to the fact that the content was deemed to be malicious.
