10 Reasons Why Your Facebook Account Is Disabled
If your Facebook account is disabled, and won’t be able to log in then there might be many reasons why your account is disabled. And the most interesting part is Facebook handle these cases differently.
There are several reasons why Facebook may disable your account. You should also know that being a Facebook user for years is not enough to give your account any form of immunity.
If you’re into serious social marketing, it’s advisable not to put all your eggs in a basket, explore other opportunities on Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, Google Plus, and the rest of them. Anyway, that’s not the main issue here, I’m just going to list below possible reasons why your Facebook account may be suspended.
- Fake Account: If you didn’t use your real name Facebook will eventually find out.
- Misrepresentation: If you created a page that impersonates a person or entity it will be locked or even closed without warning.
- Groups Joined: You have joined too many groups. The maximum limit is 200 groups per user.
- Spam: If you posted too many messages on a wall or in a group in a too short time span, it can be considered spam.
- Friends: You may have friend-requested too many people. Facebook has instituted a maximum 5000 friends policy, so this reason should be a rarity.
- Under Age: You are under 18 years old and not part of a High School group.
- Offensive Content: You wrote offensive content.
- Frequency: You may have sent “too many” friend requests or made “too many” wall posts (especially with identical content) in a short time frame.
- Hacked: Somebody may have tried to gain access to your account, so Facebook needs you to verify you are who you say you are.
- Malware: If it’s a potential problem, you will be presented with a pop up upon logging in, prompting you to scan your computer. Even though you may already have an up to date virus program be aware that malware isn’t actually a ‘virus’ so it may not be detected.
If you think your account was disabled by mistake, please submit an appeal.
