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.After sending the email to Facebook, I sent an email to the friends who’s email addresses I actually had and explained what happened.Thanks to the connect-ability of Facebook, most of my friends were only able to be contacted by me I read up on some of the articles by others who have had their accounts disabled to find out why mine was suddenly pulled – without warning I should add.The Internet, an important modern means of obtaining information and establishing communication with others, has become an increasingly essential element of human life.Although Internet use makes life easier, it can become problematic in the event of non-functional use.

Imagine my surprise when I tried to sign into Facebook one morning only to receive the following message: My account was disabled? I tried to log in with another browser and I got the same message. Facebook supplied a form submission page for those wishing to write to Facebook about their disabled account, and I emailed them basically asking why my account was disabled and how I can get access back to the numerous pages I’m an admin for.

I explained that I manage a variety of pages for clients, and was always mindful about the content I posted – after all, my parents are on Facebook too.

Do I want Facebook to change their disabling policy? I manage a few MU sites and if you want someone off your site, by all means delete them/block them/whatever.

But for Facebook to disable the account and to keep the data/photos/videos/connections/blog posts, that is wrong.

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.

Many of my pages’ admin access were shared with a partner and were easily set back up with the new Facebook account I begrudgingly created, cursing Facebook under my breath as I set up the new account.

Some of the Facebook pages admin access were shared with my clients, whom I had to contact to have them re-add me with my new account. “I have no idea” is the answer I still give, because its true.
