We’re Back!!! JobsLiberia family would like to thank all the people that supported us in making us become the #1 story on Google News. Also, we would like to thank AllAfrica.com the largest news outlet in africa, for publishing our story and helping us feel heard. We have now overcome the software issues with Facebook and will start posting our GoodNews stories again regularly. It turned out to have been a software glitch that was not letting us reach all of the people that had subscribed to our Facebook Page. MUCH LOVE, for all the LOVE!

Facebook Blocks (throttling) “Good News” site, Liberia’s most popular Page.
Jobs-Liberia.com good news Facebook Page has reached nearly 200,000 in Liberia and around the world for years helping spread joy, pride and unity. However, we are on the brink of a potential lawsuit with Facebook. Facebook’s algorithm is blocking Jobs Liberia’s Page by mistake and should the situation not be remedied, we will be forced to take legal action.
Jobs Liberia is a humanitarian not-for-profit organization that showcases Liberian talent. We promote mental health, feature local artists and fashion, and show heartwarming pictures of local Liberians. Nearly all of our Facebook Page content comes from local Liberians, which is published only with their written consent.
Jobs Liberia’s Facebook Page has touched hearts all over the world, posts are designed to bring happiness to people's lives. Just ask any of our 165,000 followers- they’ll tell you the same thing! Unfortunately, it seems that Facebook’s algorithm has mistakenly put a stop to our Facebook Page.
The average numbers of views on our posts have dropped a hundredfold, despite us paying the same amount to boost these posts. In addition to this, parents of children whose pictures have been selected to be featured in our Cute Kids of Liberia are no longer able to share these posts on our site with their friends or family. On our most recent Cute Kids feature, we had 6 shares and 170 comments, despite personally writing to 9 parents. In comparison, our 1st Cute Kids featuring, had 40 shares and over 500 comments. We have reported the problem to Facebook and reached out several times to have the situation remedied, but have yet to receive a single response.
We have become desperate! There is no reason why our Page should be blocked, we have done nothing different from the past, we always write the people that are being featured that they are now live on the site. Which is why we are asking Facebook to kindly correct this situation. We simply cannot reach our audience to deliver the daily good news.
While Facebook is restricting our reach, we are unable to move forward. Jobs Liberia has recently developed a new, free ultra low battery and data usage bartering app that allows users to trade, sell and buy. We are confident that our app can help the barter economy flourish and lead to better trade of goods and services, which will lead to free, organic job creation. The best way to share our app with as many people as possible is to promote it on our Facebook Page; however, with restrictions placed on this Page, this is now impossible. Our goal with this app is to empower people so that they are no longer limited by the money in their pockets. This app needs to reach the widest audience possible, which can only happen if the restrictions on our Facebook Page are removed.
Jobs Liberia also had plans to expand to Bangladesh, but had to cancel these plans for fear of the entire site being seized. The Facebook restrictions on our Page have not only hurt our business efforts, but they have also hurt our pride and restricted us from effectively doing our jobs. We at Jobs Liberia strongly feel that it is our duty to serve the people of Liberia to the best of our ability. We see no reason why the country’s most popular site should be blocked from delivering good news and handing out prizes! We have been advised to turn the problem over to legal counsel if this situation does not resolve itself.

Health Tip of the Day! “Art Gallery Hopping”
Gallery Hopping is a term meaning, going from one gallery to another to meet your favorite Artists and experiencing their art for yourself, it’s FUN AND FREE! You can be sure that it will be much better than seeing it on your phone or laptop! In the coming months we’ll be posting many paintings from different Galleries that you can visit! We would like to thank all the artist that have joined our MOVEMENT in bringing very affordable art classes to everyone for just 100 Liberian Dollars an hour. Bring additional happiness to your life by taking art classes. Bring your friends, make new friends! BBC News London England UK reports on how making art and being creative makes people happy and joyful, by using the part of the brain that makes our brain happier. Making art is so good for our brains that countries are even starting to use it to help soldiers coming back from war. This style of help has been used to help people overcome feelings of sadness, fear, nervousness, worry, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychological wounds of war, and so on…
Youth Crime Watch, in partnership with Jobs-Liberia.com started a movement to bring awareness to Facebook's free text based internet opportunity for Liberia. In October 2015, Cellcom brought Facebook's free internet offering to Liberia. We want to thank the over 40,000 people that joined Jobs-Liberia.com Facebook page to bring awareness to this cause and to help move Liberia towards the direction of an internet society. We also would like to whole-heartedly thank Cellcom for bringing this life changing opportunity to Liberia. There is still a lot of work to be done! Affordable WiFi and internet tablets for everyone so that every Liberian has the opportunity to self-educate and improve their lives in unimaginable ways.
