Doing Favors On Your Knees

Urgent: Facebook Group To Be Archived

| Facebook |

Are you a fan of our Facebook Group? If so, you’re likely aware that Facebook is archiving the Group. This means that all 40,000+ members will be removed soon.

We are NOT happy with this, but Facebook is forcing all Groups with over 5,000 members to archive. While the original posts and threads will remain, all members will be removed. This essentially closes the Group.

However, there is some good news: we’ve just launched the official Not Always Right Facebook Page, and we’d like to invite you to “like” us!

Here’s why you should “like” us on Facebook today:

  • Share your funny/bad customer experiences with people just like you who have experienced the same things
  • Read and watch funny/bad customer news and videos from around the world, daily
  • Be informed of official Not Always Right announcements
  • Get in early and help shape the new Page

PS — We can’t do this alone, so help us spread the word by suggesting our Page to your friends, coworkers, and any other fans of Not Always Right. Thanks!

PS #2 — Want a chance to win a free copy of the Not Always Right book? We’ll be announcing a contest soon to celebrate the launch of the new Page. Stay tuned!
