My account is disabled.
This is happening with countless facebook users all around the globe everyday. Facebook disables the accounts of users who are doing suspicious submissions. The definition of suspicious, often means just using the facebook too much. Normally, Facebook warns the people and gives them one more chance to change themselves and at times they just terminate the account suddenly and permanently. Mostly, they turn back the disabled accounts, automatically after a calm down or after sending a humble request to the facebook authorities. But in some cases, they just ban the account and forget it.
Facebook has not declared about what type of bad behavior can get the facebook account disabled, and this is the only reason that is leaving the people confused, angry or desperate when they gets the message ACCOUNT DISABLED. I have listed some of the most common reasons on "why the facebook accounts are disabled?" so that people can keep their accounts safe from getting it disabled by facebook. Keep in mind that the list mentioned below is absolutely not a complete one and as the time passes, policies will keep on changing according to requirement, we will have to live with a bit hesitation while using Facebook.
Here are the reasons that can kick you off from facebook:
• You did not use your real name
Never use nickname (or initials)in lieu of the name on your birth certificate, because Facebook will find you and spit you out.
• You joined a lot of groups
Keep in mind that the limit set per user is 200. More than that just looks desperate, isn't it?
• You posted countless messages on a wall or in a group
Even one of my close friend had his account disabled for "excessive evangelism."
• You posted in n number of groups, and 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.
• You sent the friends request to too many people
This was to be the prime cause of disabled accounts in past, but Facebook has set a maximum number of 5000 friends that can help you to protect from yourself.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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)
• 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.
• 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]
• 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.
