Eh..Facebook Limiting Me Now!

8 replies
OK, FB has started blocking all of my original posts, removing them and sending me a notice that the posts do not meet community standards.
This is crazy because they are just posts, mostly thanking groups for accepting me.
I have requested "Review" of the matter but get no reply from FB.
Oddly enough this does not seem to affect my ability to reply to the posts of others though.
FB will also not let me edit my profile or add content to it.
Think this is permanent or is FB just having a fit that it will get over in a few days if I leave it alone?

  • Facebook is daily tightening its security and very little it gives second chances therefore you need to consider creating another profile cox as far as i see your profile is doomed

      I was afraid you were going to tell me that.
      Funny thing is this is my REAL profile.


      I have a fake profile that is 7 years old, has over 150,000 "Likes", 3600 friends but I can't use it for marketing.

    Hi Real Harry,

    I think you may have it backwards, or at least that is how Facebook sees it.

    From FB's perspective your original 7 year old profile is your "real" profile.

    The bottom line is that they do not want you to have more than a single personal profile. Just one, not two, or more profiles, that's against their terms of service. Facebook (aka Lifelog) is an identity service that compiles an online dossier of your entire life. It's not merely an account profile, it's your permanent record of your life, online.

    For businesses they expect you to create a Facebook Business account and then build a Business Page. In fact, you can build as many pages as you like for as many businesses or organizations as you like, but your personal Facebook account is your permanent identity.

    Trying to create a new Facebook profile is tantamount to creating a new legal identity in real life. Not easy to do, and generally frowned upon.

    HTH,

    Don Burk

  • Well, the profile is still active and visible to others. Ima let it sit for a few days and then go back to see if I can post.

    My membership requests to various groups are still being accepted and I can still reply to posts but not make original ones.

    Screwy, huh?

    My website still shows in the profile so we are updating that and who knows? That alone may be pretty effective because the groups to which I have been accepted have hundreds of thousands of members in the niches that I was targeting.

      You got that right!
      I can promote my site just as effectively by joining various other online communities; forums, etc and be just fine.
      I have other programs that I work on but this is the program of the moment, as it were.

  • Well, now go figure.....................

    I let the "fake" account sit for a few days without even logging in to see what was going on. I continued to receive email notifications of group addition approvals and comments on my posts though.

    Logged in a bit ago and I can now post again!

    WOO HOO!

    Don't know why, don't care why and ain't gonna ask why; I'm just happy!
