Sept 17, 2017 – Timeless Vie’s FB page was taken down by Facebook on Thursday without explanation.
The team behind Timeless Vie always knew there was a risk of retaliation by either pro-MLM industry participants or others who were unhappy with the campaign’s ability to change the conversation around women, Mormonism, feminism and multi-level marketing companies. For examples of previous successes, please read this or this.
Supporters are now working with Timeless Vie members to get the page back but as of writing there was still no response from Facebook. Popular Facebook pages like Athiest Republic (1.7m likes) and Women Without Religion have been the target of coordinated attacks by opponents on the social media giant in the past. They have asked Facebook to take steps to prevent this kind of harrassment.
Timeless Vie used the Facebook page mainly for outreach and humour, as well as support to victims of the MLM industry. Part of their mandate is to provide help to women starting their own businesses by providing free advertising and also encouraging businesses and community groups to become MLM-free.
