The Shade Room having their very popular Facebook page removed proves that The Shade Room still drew plenty of followers via the social networking giant that some pundits claimed was dying in the face of newer social media sites like Instagram.

The Shade Room missing from Facebook is causing a variety of reactions on Facebook and other social media websites.

The Shade Room being deleted is also offering a sobering lesson to those who use Facebook to grow their viewing audiences. Because The Shade Room was launched only two years ago and grew so quickly, The Shade Room is being viewed as a lesson for Internet entrepreneurs on how quickly Facebook can take away an audience.

It isn't the first time The Shade Room has been removed by social networking sites like Facebook. The Shade Room was mistakenly deleted from Instagram approximately one year ago.
