We have previously mentioned and talked shortly about the legal twist we have been in since last fall. If you have not read up on that you can check out our former updates, but here is a short recap:
So you are all up to date, and the final statements are currently being reviewed and treated by the patent authorities. And that, until recently, was all there was to it.
“So hey guys, remember how we tried to revoke your trademark? Well, on behalf of Instagram LLC. and Facebook Inc., we’re here to tell you that we’re going to ban you from social media. If you somehow use “INSTA” or “GRAM” in your mark, we’re going to close your page” So now our Facebook and Instagram pages are “subject to disabling in accordance with the relevant policies and terms of service”, with no further details of when this might happen, or if there is any way we can modify our pages to comply with their requirements. The way it seems is that they may be realizing their case against us is not very good, so they use their right as a platform provider to use censorship to silence us. Even though we have every lawful right to be named Deegram and use our own trademark
Thank you for reading our update and your continued support, we would as always love to receive your feedback and thoughts on the work we do.
Best regards, The Deegrm team
Sounds like a good PR story you could use to your best advantage.
Sounds like big drama to me!

Should've just changed the A into Æ. :D
This is brilliant. I wouldn't worry too much about the Facebook and Instagram accounts, it's really difficult to get some actual traction from a 500 person community there. This rename move anyway is great in terms of publicity and you should try to make as much out of that as possible.
In a grander scheme of things it's interesting to see how vigorously Instagram / Facebook are trying to protect themselves from decentralized alternatives. Maybe because they have something in the making themselves, but maybe it's also because they actually feel threatened by the web 3.0...
Anyway, great work, keep it up!
Good for you! Well handled, a problem that you can't fix (immediately) needs to be turned around. Thanks for creating this dapp, I will definitely use it!
Facebook banned the entire Crypto industry and Google joined in! The crypto markets dropped 53% in a week! Join @jbpliberty in the Class Action against them. www.jpbliberty.com

As a rival businesses, it is not in their interest to host the page you are advertising from. Would you use your resources to help a direct competitor? It does not surprise me in the least that they would block your pages. Utilize other mediums - youtube, telegram, discord, blogs, magazines, wikis, etc.
You giveway to fb’s term, start onboarding more steemians from facebook now, that is too furthef annoy zuck!💪
