Facebook has censored Millions of post which mentioned ‘Tsu.co’. Each and everything on Facebook related to Tsu.co is deleted. If your message contains ‘Tsu.co’ then the message would be automatically sensored.
We know that ‘Tsu.co’ is a competitor of Facebook. So, it’s okay that facebook blocks ‘Tsu.co’. But what we noticed is any link containing Tsu will be censored, which is not at all a good thing.
When tried to contact Facebook, Facebook said ‘Tsu links are spam’.
Tsu is replies said ‘Facebook is a gigantic censorship-happy bully that wants to kill off competitors.’
Now let we tell the story,
On 25th September, 2015 Tsu users discovered and started complaining that they could no longer post ‘Tsu.co’ on Facebook or Instagram. So, Tsu employees reported this thing to Facebook.
And facebook replied that the error message comes because the content was a spam.
