With the online gurus teaching everyone “how easy” it is to advertise on Facebook it’s no wonder so many accounts are getting suspended…
Unfortunately, if you are trying to advertise on Facebook it’s not a matter of “if” but rather “when” your account will be suspended.

2. Using A Fake Name
3. Using A Single Name
4. Fake Profile Picture
5. A Fake Profile
6. Sharing or Sending Too Many Spam Links After Sign Up
7. Sending Too Many Friend Requests That Are Declined After Sign Up
8. Too Many Reports
9. Suspicious Payment Information
10. Too Many Facebook Accounts

Not in line with the company’s Terms or Community Standards
Discriminatory, unlawful, fraudulent, misleading
Considered an infringement of a person’s rights, including copyrights
Virus or malicious code or anything else that can disable or damage functions of the platform
Considered an automated means of collecting data from the platform in case you try to employ it without the company’s permission
How can I Unsuspend my Facebook account?
Try to log into Facebook, and then wait for a message stating that your account is in a suspended state and that you need to begin the process for reinstatement.
Answer the security question.
How long does Facebook suspend your account?
Facebook’s penalties range from being blocked from posting to being cut off from logging into your account. These sentences can last from just a couple of hours to up to 21 days.
How do I contact Facebook about a suspended account?
firstname.lastname@example.org – This email can be used to appeal any suspended accounts or blocked/removed content. email@example.com – You can use this email address to contact Facebook about any financial questions or concerns related to any of your Facebook accounts.
Why did my Facebook account get disabled?
There are many reasons why Facebook might disable your account, including not using your real name, posting offensive content, scraping the site, joining too many groups, sending too many messages, “poking” too many people, or sending the same message too many times.
How many times can you be suspended from Facebook?
Bans can last up to 30 days for repeat offenses. In our post-email world, Facebook is the great connector—the only means that some people have of remaining in touch with distant kin. Being banned from contact with them for 30 days could, for some, be deeply painful.
How to Get Your Facebook Account Back
Here are some steps that can be used to successfully get your Facebook account back:
Confirm Your Identity
You will need to verify your full name and upload a scan of a photo or government-issued ID. You will be required to provide two pieces of legal identification. Facebook accepts any government ID that shows both your name and birth date. You also can use two alternate forms of ID, including utility bills, medical records, pay stubs, library cards and bank statements, so long as the combination of the documents you upload verifies your name and birth date.
Facebook may ask you to identify the people in the pictures from your account. If you’ve added large numbers of photos that include people you don’t know in groups that also include your friends and acquaintances, you may be unable to pass the photo security check. You can try waiting a few hours and make another attempt.
Answer Security Question
If you can’t remember the answer to the question, you can call the friends you listed as trusted contacts on your account and provide them with a Web address they can visit to obtain a security code for you. This identity check can substitute for a step that involves providing an alternate email address and the password for that account as a means of regaining access to a suspended Facebook account.
Conduct an Online Malware Scan
Facebook may suspend your account because it detects a pattern of activity that correlates with a malware infection on the user’s computer. Facebook provides an online scan-and-cleanup operation that it may require you to complete before it allows you to regain access to your account.
Here is how to file your suspension appeal through the Facebook platform:
Go to your account
Look for the link titled Go To Help Center under the suspension notification and click it
Click the second section called Login and Password
Choose Fix a problem in the menu on the left side of the screen
Select the first option in the Login Help—Can’t log into Facebook
Scroll down to Find out if your account is disabled
Look for the link titled Use this form to request a review
Fill out the form with your name, email address, and provide ID scans
After you’ve finished this process, all that’s left is to wait for a response from Facebook support.
Are You Just Wasting Time?
Was your motivation for having a Facebook account not strictly social (hanging out with friends)? If you were using their marketplace or sharing products to earn a side income there is another online option that may suit you.
