Facebook is banning e-cig vendors.

It would seem that some e-cig related commercial pages on Facebook have been deleted for TOS violations.  Hundreds of manufacturers and vendors network using Facebook, offering coupon codes, info on their latest products, and contests for their customers.  A thread on UKVapers.org talks about this new phenomenon. There is also a post on a vaping related Facebook page  where a vendor states he lost contact with 14,000 fans of his page with no explanation or prior warning.  More information about this incident can be found here.

Looking up Facebook’s TOS agreement regarding ecigs, it seems that e-cigs are considered by Facebook to be tobacco products in the same vein as cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, etc.

Vendors beware!  In the post referenced above, the aggrieved vendor stated that Facebook continued to take funds for advertising even after they deleted his page and sponsored links.

Was the prohibition of vendor pages, along with sponsored advertising of e-cigs and related products always prohibited on Facebook, or is this a new thing ushered in with shareholders and tanking stock prices?  Perhaps it has more to do with US big tobacco companies getting into the e-cig market, or the fact that minors as young as 13 are allowed to use Facebook?  Honestly, it’s hard to tell.  What is clear, however, is that it seems that manufacturer and vendor pages are being targeted for removal now.  Per the TOS, groups that promote the community aspect of vaping such as Vapors Lounge, Real Vapers, Vapers Network, et al. have not been targeted… yet.

    It’s actually very complex in this active life to listen news
    on Television, so I simply use internet for that purpose, and take the latest information.
