MENLO PARK, Calif. — Facebook is blaming a technical glitch for knocking several Catholic-focused Facebook pages with millions of supporters offline for some-more than a day.
Catholic radio network Relevant Radio says on its website that its “Father Rocky” Facebook page went down on Monday and wasn’t easy until late Tuesday night. It says some-more than 20 other distinguished Catholic pages were also suspended.
The shutdown stirred conjecture among some page administrators that they were being intentionally censored.
Godwin Delali Adadzie of Ghana, who runs an English-language page called “Jesus and Mary” with 1.75 million followers, told the Catholic News Agency that he was told his personal comment was dangling for “suspected of questionable activities.” After convalescent entrance to his account, he pronounced the Jesus and Mary page had been close down.
Adadzie told Catholic News Agency on Tuesday he reviewed Facebook’s policies “and, honestly, we do not see any that we have disregarded in sequence for my page to be withdrawn.”
A Facebook orator apologized for the intrusion Wednesday, revelation The Associated Press in a matter that all pages have been restored. Facebook says the occurrence “was triggered incidentally by a spam showing tool.”
