I realize that for many people, joining Facebook groups that center around Kratom is not a problem. For me it is. I tried to apply/buy from Re-Leaf and one of the criteria of 'joining' is to give them the Facebook account that you have. Well, I don't use my personal page at all, and my business page is off limits. Not everyone lives on Facebook, and not everyone will want to associate publicly with Kratom. I keep my business separate from all personal issues. I was placing an order with a vendor right now, and my business avatar popped up on the order page. Now I'm really freaked out. I have no idea how that got linked, and I'm waiting to hear back from the vendor.

So please vendors - understand that people will have very legitimate reasons for not wanting to share their Facebook account. Just sayin'....

Hi Kitsune!

I’m with you on keeping my Facebook separate from my kratom activities.

I use Re-Leaf LLC by simply emailing them rather than signing up for their Facebook page.

I also don’t get the discounts from joining other vendor websites and don’t partake.

Additionally, I plum avoid Facebook these days. It is not a lifestyle I have time for. And I don’t even have a full time job (paying)! I do miss death notices and other serious announcements from friends assuming Facebook is the only place where people get information! It’s upsetting, but I just figure that people are not that interested in letting ME know what’s up if they don’t contact me. That’s life. Facebook is not.

Hopefully your issue is not as serious as you presume. Definitely try a calming strain and try not to worry.

And continue your usual Facebook habits as you always have and don’t use Facebook for placing orders. I find any vendor by accessing their website, not their Facebook page. But I still get kratom sales attempts in messenger from ONCE “liking” a comment on an individual’s page who sells it, but this was a “like” on his personal page. I just tell them I’m not interested and delete the inquiries.

Hang in there!
Laurie

Thanks for the support Laurie! I felt cornered into doing facebook - if I didn't sign up and claim my business name, someone else can come along and use it and steal my customers and/or ruin my reputation so I had no choice. (Had to buy the dot com name too - I doubt I'll ever use it but I have to have it anyway for the same reason.) So I wasn't thrilled to have to do it, and then on top of it dealing with all of the connectedness! I work long hours being self employed and I can't get caught up in that scene and I think I wrote maybe 4 business posts 4 or 5 years ago. I found it tiresome and unrewarding!

I definitely won't be bothering with Re Leaf. They wanted my driver's license. No thanks. The facebook wasn't enough for them, and giving them my facebook was really pushing it anyway. I don't want another time suck - I'm not there to join a club etc and so forth. I'm a tired 55 year old woman struggling to get the job done every day. I don't want to join a club! Anyhow it was really insulting. But I already knew I wasn't cool enough - silly me for trying. ;-)

I hope you are doing well, mom and pup too. Sending you a big cheery hug and off to start another long day!

We have a lot in common, Kitsune. Love the leaf, not Facebook-lol. If you need help choosing a vendor, I’d check out the Madmax reviews under FIND A VENDOR/RATE A VENDOR. I also leave less wordy reviews under that header. Including what vendors on the Approved Vendor list that I have tried. Or pm myself or Madmax. I’ve a feeling you will manage without our help
:-)
