Facebook Deactivated Me- Update.


We apologize for our delayed response to your inquiry. Unfortunately, due to high contact rates, we have not yet been able to investigate this report. If you have resolved this issue on your own or have already been assisted and the reported account is no longer disabled, please ignore this email.

Facebook has policies to stop behavior that other users may find annoying or abusive. Your account may have been suspended due to posted content that violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (this includes any obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit photos, as well as any photos that depict graphic violence. We also remove content, photo or written, that threatens, intimidates, harasses, or brings unwanted attention or embarrassment to an individual or group of people).

If you think your account was disabled by mistake, please submit a new contact form by clicking on the link below:


Thanks for your understanding and your continued patience,

The Facebook Team"

Facebook deactivated me February 15th and they have not even LOOKED at my profile yet to determine if they had a valid reason to disable it in the first place. No pressure, Guys. Take your time. I've already forgotten I ever even had Facebook.

Also, they are disabling accounts if someone flags content as being "annoying"? Are you kidding me? If I had known that just sheer annoyance was enough of a reason to have people's facebook accounts cancelled, I would have reported Glenn Beck and the Westboro Baptist Church ages ago.

Funny, when Facebook deleted William Shatner's account, they seemed to rectify that mistake pretty fucking quick.

Damn you facebook! We miss you and NEED you back. It sucks now. I have to go to facebook AND then come to your blog because there is nothing interesting over there.
We all miss you.

Thanks Anon2! I am trying. Int he meantime, thanks for coming here.. even if it is a bit out of your way.

And Anon1, I have read about how the number of Facebook accounts being deactivated has skyrocketed since November of last year.
A few publications have suspected that due to FB reaching a "critical mass", the only way to appease their investors by making it appear that people are still creating new profiles is to disable accounts, forcing people to sign up again and they can make it appear that the numbers are steady.

Like you said "500 million users, yea right."

I like the idea of stockpiling profiles like rolls of toilet paper... ;)

interesting that they found the time to deactivate your account yet nothing has happened to the person/account who made pornographic comments about my nephews on fb.

Are you kidding? Am I to assume you reported them and Facebook has disregarded your request??
For as bureaucratically anal as Facebook has become, you'd think they would still have the sense to make serious offenses a priority.


I'm sorry to hear that, Dink.

P.S. We have to hang out. Soon. Please.
