Is Google Post broken?

I am already trying to publish a new Google Post message since yesterday, but it always fails with the message "Internal error". Is Google Post broken since a few days? When will it work again?

 

This is the message text I am trying to publish:

"Opendeurdagen gemist?😢 Meld je dan aan op onze gratis nieuwsbrief.📧 Zo blijf je op de hoogte van onze belangrijkste degustaties.💡"

 

The post is supposed to have a register button with this link: http://asterx.be/nieuwsbrief

 

This is the image for that post (I also tried without success to reduce size to 1026x769 as that worked last week):

1) Full business names: AsterX Dranken bvba (3 locations) and F.F. Company bvba

2) Catenbergstraat 2, 2840 Rumst

3) +3232460192

4) https://www.google.be/maps/@51.0847853,4.429608,14.25z

@Helmut GeisslerIf that is the case, I hope Google is reading this reply. I think that instead of imposing the very strict U.S. alcohol regulations worldwide, they should take in consideration the local rules.

 

In Belgium, this is allowed:

* any age can enter our shops

* any age can buy candy, nuts, soda drinks, water, milk, tea, coffee, and so forth (we also sell those)

* people of age 16 and older can buy beer and wine

* people of age 18 and older can buy liquor

* we can make advertising for beverages with alcohol or for activities like beer tastings, as long as we do not specifically target youngsters or use pictures of youngsters in this advertising

 

@Google: please look at how Facebook is adhering to local regulations. They are implementing local laws very well without forcing U.S. law in non-U.S. countries.

haha  @Sander d

 

Its the same in my country Germany (and I presume the same in the majority of all not muslim countries)

 

But you know there is a  new stupid policy  in th US:  "America first"

 

Maybe the new behavior on GMB post is Googles own contribution to this "America first" polcy. Not sure about - but who knows???

 

I agree with you: Google should  read and  consider  your opinion and feedback and I  will forward it to them
