All of them asked “Why did your account get disabled? I, too, would question the person I paid to manage my Facebook page why their Facebook account was disabled. Facebook has still yet to give me a reason why my account was disabled.
After reading the reasons Facebook disabled accounts on their page I was still in the dark.
To say that Facebook plays a big part in my life is a bit of an understatement – as I’m sure it is for any other social media manager.
I also had a client who recently used a contest promotion to increase their email list.
According to Facebook promotional guidelines, contests can only be run on Facebook through one of two apps: Short Stack and Wild Fire. I checked that client’s Facebook page and it was gone too. Although the contest wasn’t exactly hosted on Facebook (it was hosted on the client’s website), and the winner was notified via email (you cannot announce winners on your wall), I was confident this was the offending action which had me ushered off Facebook without so much as a ‘Bye-bye’. something very important – I created a filter in gmail for Facebook emails.
Facebook already makes it possible for an active account to be downloaded, so why not a disabled account?
It’s time for Facebook to get a bit more mature in this area – especially with their IPO announced. —————————————–Sponsored Listing———————————————– Did you know that you can get remote access to your private online workspace with access to all windows applications, Try out trending virtual PCs by Cloud Desktop with top-notch support from one of the best Daa S providers – Apps4Rent.
What would Facebook be if nobody uploaded content onto the site – No photos to share or tag – No articles to Like – No status updates to LOL at – It would be NOTHING.
Facebook should allow those who they disabled to download their account, letting them retrieve their photos/videos/notes/etc., before going off to the barren wastelands of Google , or to RT their friends status updates (as opposed to ‘Liking’ it).Its been about a month since I had my account disabled, and had lots of time to reflect on the experience.I haven’t tried to contact Facebook directly since I received the email from Javier, but I did start the website and the hashtag campaign on Twitter #FBdisabled Me to draw attention to the negative experience.The publishing dates on the articles span the lifetime of Facebook, showing that the company has forever been on a behind-the-scenes campaign of disabling accounts at their discretion.I found some articles by famous bloggers or journalists, including Roger Ebert, Robert Scoble, and Stan Shroeder (Mashable).At this point it was about a week since I initially wrote Facebook that fateful morning, and I still hadn’t received a reply. Even if they did email me, I would have never received the email because it was set to “Skip Inbox/Delete”. So I sent another email to Facebook, this time letting them know that I had a filter on my gmail and if they did contact me prior to this email, I would have never received it.
