I just got this message from Facebook:

Your ad wasn’t approved because the image includes nonexistent functionality such as a play button that suggests video capability or a close buttons that doesn’t close.

And the image with the “nonexistent functionality” is… a QR code.

I really don’t get it.

I care about privacy, ethical design, and freedom in many aspects. I spend 20+ years working as a web developer and architect, analyst, manager, and product owner/manager in different environments, several countries, and multiple software industries like Healthcare and Hospitality. I wore many hats, and I use the knowledge gathered to optimize the flow of value across complex systems.
