Has your Facebook account been “erased” by Facebook?

Damn, ever since Facebook blocked my account for a little less than a day people have been calling me with some real sob stories about how their accounts got turned off by Facebook and that they have no recourse.

I seriously don’t know what to do either, but I’m going to collect them all and then write a post. Maybe a little “A list blog attention” will get some accounts relooked at.

Many people admit they were doing something naughty, like I was, but others say they weren’t doing anything wrong and didn’t get an answer about what they were doing that got them kicked off Facebook.

Either way, there’s a lot of people out there who’ve been “erased” and who haven’t gotten the same treatment my account got for some reason (I was turned back on).

Drop me a line, or, better yet, leave a comment on this post.

Personally, Facebook should have a citizen review board where appeals of “erasure” could be taken and where a decent answer could be attained.

Some things that have gotten people kicked off?

1. Using a fake name. Mini Microsoft was kicked off.
2. Behaving like a spammer. Sending out lots of birthday party invitations got one person kicked off.
3. Using automated systems like what I was doing to look at things.

But, again, lots of people who’ve been emailing me and calling me say they haven’t done any of those three and still got kicked off and had no appeal.

Another place that people should go is to Satisfaction. They have a bunch of info for banned people there.

  11. Hi, My facebook account was deleted because someone used their contact email as the same as mine. It deleted my account that was orignally with that one, and the account that newly added the address keeps it and just changes straight after, and the original account is deleted. I have appealed to get it back and am awaiting reply. Sorry if its a bit complicated!

  13. hi guys, my account was reactived by facebook, after no less that 6 emails after my last one pleading with them to allowe me to access even if it was to take off the contacts so i have have stored.. now take this gr8 example.

    i logged in other day to see this message when clicking on inbox. ” your sending too many messages you will hit a block soon”.. now too many define too many. i counted in my sent items i sent 6 messages in just over 8 days..

    then my housemate came in laughed at the message as he sends 20+ a day to ppl and never had any such message.. bloody typical.. one rule for one ..

  21. Last night my account was disabled and I wrote to the disabled@facebook.com address and received an automated message back. This morning I checked my mail and didn’t see a reply so I wrote again. In the afternoon I wrote a third time because I was getting impatient and finally wrote to info@facebook.com to see if I’d get a faster reply through that address.

    10 minutes after writing to the “info” address I received a message saying my account has been reactivated and they apologize for any inconvenience.

    No explanation, no warning as to what I did wrong… but either way I’m just glad things are back up and running.

  23. My facebook was disabled a couple of hours ago. I swear I did not engage in any misconduct! The only thing I did before it was disabled was replying back to wall posts. I didn’t receive any statement/email/message from Facebook warning me about any misused or wrong action at all! I simply tried to log in and it stated that it was disabled. I have had Facebook for almost two years and uses it solely for keeping in touch with friends and partaking social events in which I am invited to. I don’t believe I was at fault in any way unless Facebook could state exactly what it was they disabled my account for. Please try your best to help us all on this issue, thanks!

  25. I was using facebook solely to talk to friends through posts or messages and upload pictures of me and friends, all deemed appropriate. other then that I was complying with all the rules. suddenly i sign on and was not allowed to proceed with logging in. i then checked my email address and it showed that a couple days ago i got a email from facebook warning me that they will disable my account for misuse of a photo. The second email stated how my facebook account had been deactivated. I replied days ago, to the email adress that facebook contacted me initially at, only to be ignored so far. i am very upset and frustrated. Many of my facebook friends are people i dont have Phone numbers or addresses and that i will now lose touch with. Can somebody help me please

  29. My facebook account was disable the other day and my friends tells me I was showing as an question mark on their friends but now gone. I was told I violated..how? This is the email I got..
    Unfortunately you can only sign up for one Facebook account per email address. In addition, Facebook accounts are for individual use only and cannot be used by multiple parties. Email addresses are offered for free by many websites (e.g. gmail, hotmail, etc.).

    Please let me know the full name for the person who will be using this account and I will be able to make that change for you. We apologize for any inconvenience. Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks for contacting Facebook,
    I wrote back..I had only the one account for my email. I just used my husband and my name together, I meant no harm. So sorry.
    If you can restore my account..only I Luchell will be on it and will be using it.

    so how will I know if I get my account back or not?
    Please help me get my account back.

  31. My account was disabled today. I am a college student and a dj and I use facebook to promote many of my events, and I even purchase items off facebook. My account was disabled because I was friending too many people who responded to an event I posted, over 2000 people accepted the event. How can I get my account re enabled? Can you help out in anyway? Thanks.

  35. My account was deactivated because I was on holiday for a week, when I got back I had 147 messages (all from within my 116 contacts). I answered almost all of them, then got promptly deleted from Facebook. Now, no one from FB will reply to my email. ???
    Some of these contacts I have no addresses for (they were people I had previously lost touch with). I have over 200k in poker…and my friends have also informed me that my name, etc. is STILL attached to several applications. Haikoo zoo, Friends for Sale, etc.
    If they don’t wish to have me, I’ll go back to Myspace, no problem. At this point I am considering contacting my attorney about what options I have in protecting the personal information they won’t allow me to remove.
    If you know of any resources, please let me know as FB just won’t reply to my emails.

  37. Just don’t join networks where the primary value is locked up inside. If you don’t control most of your content don’t join (and if the value is locked up inside their system don’t bother).

    For social networks I can see they might add value by providing useful tools to improve connections (but if they can’t figure out a way to be open and interact easily with mainly internet based content don’t waste your time with their old proprietary thinking model). I just don’t see much need to participate in an enterprise where I would have to invest my time and energy and content and hope that the company decides not to be evil for the rest of the time I want to deal with them.

    Keep most of your content under your control. For example even if your content is in Blogger, the ability to backup (and move) your blogger blog essentially leaves the content in your control. Then if Google decides to be evil you just take you backup and post it elsewhere.

    Seriously? You think that’s even close?

    Wow.
