After years of sharing watch movement content, engaging with fans, and growing a respectable following on the Caliber Corner Facebook page… Meta decided to delete the page.
The Caliber Corner Facebook page was located at https://facebook.com/calibercorner with the official URL and all, but now it does not exist. The content is gone. No backups, nothing. No warning.
After trying to login, the page is now met with an invasive request of personal documents such as forms of ID, etc. Why are they so desperate to get a scan of everyone’s ID… for a watch movement fan page?
The page was not hacked, and did not engage in any unwanted behavior – just watch movements.
On the same account, other watch related pages were deleted as well, the only one that wasn’t was a page with an ad account that regularly spends money on Facebook ads. Interesting, huh?
Warning: Think twice before you spend your time and money building a community on a Facebook/Meta property, especially for a business or project that you depend on as a source of income.

“I’ll have our team follow-up with you on that afterwards.”
