We need your help!

A week or so ago, I shared the following link with you, for a social media position our daughter is trying to attain. 

We have all been posting on FaceBook (which is 'THE' social media, right?),
and Melissa is currently in 1st place.  

However, yesterday, when we all got to our FB pages to vote,
the posts had all been removed by their administration, and marked as offensive content. 

We don't know if this was a FB 'friend', or one of the other competitors, but
we need to get the word out and get some votes coming in!

I'm hoping that you will all take the time to send up a vote or 10!

You can vote one time each day from now until August 22nd, and we
would appreciate any votes you have time to cast.

Thanks in advance!

If this post offends you, PLEASE tell me. 
Please don't report it as offensive content. 
I will gladly come back in and remove it.

Don't you think it's pretty ironic that using social media to win a social media contest is offensive?

Here is the post again:

We would love YOUR vote!!!

Hi peeps!

Today is a personal post.  Our daughter Melissa, who lives in Germany, is in the running to be one of two members chosen to be social media ambassadors for the German Tourism Office.

The contest runs through Aug. 22nd, and you can vote one time each day between now and then.
Whether you vote once, or every day, we appreciated whatever you have time to do!

No personal information is asked for. You will simply go to the link shown, click on it, and then click VOTE when their photo comes up. That's it. Easy peasy!

Here's the link:

Thanks so much for stopping by today,
and thanks again, in advance for your vote(s)!!!

Feel free to share the link with your family and friends!!!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Lori, the link never changes, so you can either copy and paste it to use again, or you can pop back here. I'm going to ask DD for a photo, and put it on my sidebar today, too! Thank you so much!!!

I bet it wasn't Facebook that removed those votes, but a mean-spirited hacker.
