Facebook Banned Cryptocurrency Websites

Social media giant, Facebook (FB) has officially joined YouTube in banning cryptocurrency-based content from its platforms. CryptoZink received a general “suspended” email from YouTube on March 18 that read:

“We’d like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines (https://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines) your YouTube account [name removed] suspended.

Facebook vs cryptocurrency ads and content

Facebook formally banned cryptocurrency advertisements (ads) on January 2018. Nonetheless, Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and blockchain related content were still welcome until discovered FB censored our content from the social media platform..

However, one could just dismiss this as a “per-account” or “user basis” ban. However, CryptoZink writers have not posted any content that violates either Facebook’s or YouTube’s community guidelines or policies. They blindly see crypto & bitcoin as threats to their bottom line.
