Hot bank holiday weekends are probably the quietest time for something like Facebook. People are outside enjoying the weather and doing stuff with friends and family. I find my feed is very quiet all day on an good weekend until the evening, especially the Sunday evening when people are at home relaxing and looking at/updating their social media.
I know sometimes on a weekend I'm at work and have a look at Facebook and there's nothing new being posted. Maybe that's just me, maybe my friends just have a life?
Its completely different ball game between personnel updating SM accounts and groups updating SM accounts. I agree with you most people dont update their SM and instead post very little. With groups people do interact, its like this forum, people are using it to interaction for other reasons. It may surprise you but some of the highest traffic on the FB has been Sunday for groups. It doesn't mean people dont have lifes, it just means their relaxing catching up on stuff their like.
The other issue with something like Facebook is that you see the large thumbnail or image first before reading the context. Plus it shows latest first. So I expect a lot of people looked at Facebook at the end of their Saturday and the first thing they saw were photos of famous sex offenders. The post explaining that it was a 'Banned weekend' were a long way down their feed. It was without warning
For those who were offended by the photos of they even read the accompanying text explaining that it was 'banned weekend' they might not agree that is enough justification.
You do have a valid point, about warnings. The photos should have never went up, I can agree with you there, I don't know why.
However the content is on the Ark somewhere, adverts, tv shows etc it still taboo. Concept was never set out to be like that, lets shock people and have a jolly good snigger. It was to highlight the other side of Television presentation, its not all sunshine and rose.
There was a post about Scum, BBC Drama that was banned and of course Harold Wilson doc from 1970, the BBC agreed to never broadcast while he was alive. There was also PG tip with Chips Xbox ad and Hamlet advert and news paper cuttings linked to them.
The content is there for all to see on the Ark, People will come across it, you can't just whitewash history, that is never a good idea. Maybe the Concept was flawed but it did get alot of positive feedback, but could have been handle better, that acceptable feedback.
I see you do have some issues with the content but that is good thing, It mean you think most of its awful and that is good viewpoint to have.
