For my last experiment I decided to just screw around with Facebook to see if I can get one by their censors. This experiment involves the use of geeky lexical humor to poke fun of the antiquated way of using the letter V in place of the letter U and to see if I could get a quasi-curse word through their filters.
The text for the advertisement is:
Fvck Your Last Boyfriend
Put the past behind you and lets go on a date!
Dinner and a movie? Bicycling to a park?
Going dancing? This hunk will rock your world.
For added irony, I uploaded a Photobooth photograph with the squeeze effect.
The ad was sent to review:
Someone from Facebook’s office in Palo Alto visited my website:
And the ad was rejected.
After my previous experiments, I was expecting it to be rejected. At least they didn’t delete my account! In jest I’ll conclude with “FVCK CENSORSHIP.”
