Account Deactivated by an Administrator

I have been a member on Facebook for over two years. Yesterday, when I tried to log in, I received the notification that my account had been terminated by an Administrator. I have been in contact with a couple of friends and it has happened to others as well.

Help, I am lost without my wonderful network of friends....

    I didn't find that either of your solutions helped much. The problem seemed to be an error at facebook, and it has now been rectified. Thank you for your help nevertheless. It is good to know there are people out there that can do something!!

    I have been locked out of my account for 2 weeks, with absolutely NO response from Facebook. I have emailed them 3 times. If you're sick of being ignored by Facebook, sign my petition!

It seem's random account de-activation has been an issue for awhile , according to one website here are 13 reasons you may get deactivated......even after reading this your best bet is to e-mail facebook support and see exactly what the deal is...sorry this happned to you!

Here are the things that (supposedly) will get you kicked off Facebook:

1. You didn't use your real name
Don't try to use a nickname (or initials)in lieu of the name on your birth certificate, because Facebook will find you and spit you out.

2. You joined too many groups
Remember that the maximum limit is 200 groups per user. More than that just looks desperate, don't you think?

3. You posted too many messages on a wall or in a group
Even Guy Kawasaki had his account disabled--in his case for "excessive evangelism."

4. You posted in too many groups, too many user's walls
You may be axed for being too verbose in too many places. That's what spammers do, silly. On Facebook it is better--or at least safer--to be seen than heard.

5. You friended too many people
Not so long ago this was a prime cause of disabled accounts, but Facebook has instituted a maximum of 5000 friends that should protect you from yourself.

6. Your school/organization affiliation is doubtful
The overlords are sometimes not very trusting, and they may accuse you of not graduating from Harvard (or Plum Senior High School). The impertinence! Better have your diploma ready.

7. You're poking too many people
We've heard this from multiple sources, and it's easy enough to avoid. Save the pokes for people you *really* like, as mum always said. But beware the odd FB app that pokes on your behalf.

8. For advertising your app on wall posts
The line between spam and self-promotion is a thin one, but let it be known that pimping your shiny new Facebook app is definitely considered SPAM.

9. Using duplicate text in multiple messages
Some people paste a generic welcome message into friend requests to save time. DON'T DO THIS! It makes you look like a spammer. (Ironically, pro spammers are probably randomizing their messages to avoid this trap)

10. You are a cow, dog, or library
Being a real person is not enough, you must be a **** sapien. Accounts have been deleted for cows, dogs and libraries.

11. You are under eighteen years old
According to one report a user's account was suspended when they suspected her of being under 18. She was required to enter a work email address to prove her maturity, at which point her account was reinstated. [note: other users have pointed out that being under 18 is fine if you're part of a High School group, though underage home schoolers have been told to bugger off]

12. You wrote offensive content
Reports of "sudden death" on accounts have been reported by users who were told they had posted offensive content, but were not provided details of the offense.

13. You scraped information off Facebook
They have a zero tolerance policy for page scraping (i.e. pulling content off their web pages via a script). Unfortunately, they don't have a reliable way of proving it's you who's doing the scraping (IP matching is probably as good as they can get), so you may find this a difficult charge to defend yourself against.

Deleted my original account of Facebook now I can't get it again plus I have extra accounts now that I had started trying to get the original mine back. What can I do?


It is possible to re-activate Facebook accounts that have been deleted or deactivated. Sometimes users may want to re-use old Facebook accounts. This can be done by logging in to the Facebook using the email provided during the registration process along with password. An alert message stating that the user account is no longer active will be displayed. A registration email from Facebook will automatically be sent to the email address provided when logging in to Facebook. In order to re-activate the Facebook account, the internet link in the email sent must be clicked and the corresponding instructions followed.

  • Log in to Facebook with your original email and password
  • A red sign will appear saying that you have tried to log in a deactivated account
  • They will use the email that you used during your original registration and send an email about reactivation!
  • In the email you will find a link, just follow it

Tip

I want to delete my Facebook account


Hi.<br /> <br /> There are at least two different ways to delete a Facebook account.<br /> <br /> The "soft" way:<br /> <br /> Go to your Facebook account setting page and set account as deactivated. The account will be suspended and content will not be accessible to other users anymore. This is not still enough for deletion. After deactivation you must not access anymore your account, or the account will not be deleted. A deactivated account will be definitively deleted after two-four weeks with no access. If you change your mind, all you have to do is logging in. The Facebook account will be immediately reactivated.<br /> <br /> The "hard" way:<br /> <br /> This will submit a request for immediate complete deletion of the account. All the content will be immediately deleted once your request is processed. If you would like your account permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log in to your account and then <a href="http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account">submit your request here</a>. Of course you need a Facebook account to delete one. The page will ask you to log in with your facebook ID and password.<br /> <br /> See also:<br /> <br /> <span></span><span></span><a href="http://www.facebook.com/help/?search=i%20want%20to%20permanently%20delete%20my%20account"><i>Help Center</i> ' Faceboo</a>k<br /> <br /> <span></span><a href="http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=419">Privacy - Facebook <i>Help Center</i> </a><br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/How-to-Cancel-My-Facebook-Account/120329218013232"><i>How to Cancel</i> My <i>Facebook Account</i></a><br /> <br /> <span></span><a href="http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=16929680703">How to permanently delete Facebook</a>

Is it possible for me to log in to FB with my deactivated account for a message check with-out reactivating my account ? Thanks, mark


If you have deactivated your Facebook account, you can only view the message by logging back in again which will reactivate it.
You can then re-de-activate the account again after you have checked the messages you want to check.

Hello , I use to have a Facebook account about 2


Hello, if your facebook account was deactivated more than 30 days ago than facebook has likely permanently deleted it. Facebook regularly goes through deactivated Facebooks and deletes and account that has been deactivated longer than 30-90 days. Try visiting https://www.facebook.com/login/identify?ctx=reason and enter your email, if nothing shows up than unfortunately your account is gone forever.

Ive been trying to delete my facebook account and im really having a hard time with it pleaseeee help me to take care of this


There's not really anyway to completely delete your facebook account immediately, but you can deactivate it which will remove all references to you from facebook, and I think after 90 days of being deactivated, it will delete your account.

To deactivate your account, go to your Account Settings from the account dropdown menu in the top right corner. At the bottom of the Account Settings page, you should see the link to deactivate your account.

I lost my facebook when I tried to log on with my password. Help


As long as you have your email account, you should be able to log in to FB (use your original message from Facebook if nothing else works. Link can be found from your email by searching Facebook...the first two messages from them).

Knowing that one account is dying, it's time to go to Facebook setting on top right corner and choose ACCOUNT SETTINGS - there you find all options from changing email address to password etc...

1) Log-in with your email and password 2) There will be a red sign that says you have tried to log-in with a deactivated account. They will use your email that you used to register to send an email about reactivation. Subject should be: “Facebook Reactivation Confirmation” 3) Click on the link when you receive that email and you will be good to go!
