Facebook Monsters, real life young polite Samoan women

I talked about this before, but this time, I'm referring to the Samoan confession pages that is once again showing the ugliest side of faikakala and hate among young women, mostly.

Again, this is nothing new - Samoan women have been faikakalaring and speaking ill of others since they got off Noah's aark.
But Facebook is making it so much more blatant and showing the cowardice of people hiding behind screens playing with other's emotions, reputations, relationships, loved ones and lives.
Now, what these cowards have forgotten is that: SAMOA is a small place and even their most trusted allies are ....you guessed it, Faikakalas just like them!
It went from 200 followers to over 1000 within a week, along with sharing, naming people, shaming their families and every vile comment you can think of, have been discussed.
I reported it but FB but they're not gonna remove it because (response below).

Anyhow, what is apparent is that these are young people, mostly in NUS, mostly friends or know of each other and mostly have little understanding of the severity of their actions.
They need to be made accountable for their actions and know that it has serious consequences.
What can you do as a grown up?
  • Do not like these pages and cheer and share its contents in a funny manner, which is what several grown Samoan people are doing, making it normal and funny.
  • Report the page and stress that we as a country have one of the highest suicide rates in the world.
  • If you have a teenager,  don't care if you are being the monster parent, Know what they're doing on Facebook. Make that a condition while they are under your roof. Because you will be the one picking up the pieces when it all turns to kaleve.
  • Talk to your teen and see if they are okay, if someone is bullying them or are they bullying someone....maybe that conversation will help them a lot.
Okay, thank you for reading,

Hi Vicki,
It names real people in there, their first and last names and disgusting comments - we are from a small country and this page is breaking up families and ruining young peoples relationships, reputations, bullying comments and mostly from fake profiles. It is defamatory and most of the attacking comments are said in the Samoan language which you don't get to read.
You need to delete it as it will result in students committing suicide, do you not consider that at Facebook or do you not care at all? Have a heart and think of the consequences.
