Play by their rules

Well, I guess that’s the end of my social media experiment. Facebook shut down my German Football Team fan page and merged it with the official Die Nationalmannschaft page (which is in German, that’s why I created one in English) because it wasn’t run by an official representative. It’s a bit painful because the page had accumulated >80,000 fans over the past few years and I have been regularly posting news and updates on the page, feeling a certain responsibility to keeping all these fans updated (as silly as that sounds).

Obviously there is some demand of an English-language fan page for the German team but if the German football association doesn’t want to put an effort towards that, there’s nothing anyone can do about it. It was fun while it lasted but we all have to play by Facebook’s rules…
