Facebook disabling accounts

Facebook started off as a great social media website almost a decade ago, but now it’s getting painful and irritating due to this id verification and account disabling issues.

Facebook is very actively disabling the accounts and asking for verification these days.

Why is account disabling wrong?

Disabling a fake or inappropriate account can be justified, but in the current scenario. But the issue is something else.

The issue is the non standard and undisclosed way of doing that. There is no published criteria that when and why are id’s disabled and asked for verification. What one does from the id that they need to verify their ids, that too via government id! Seriously?

This had really freaked me out! No my id haven’t been disabled (till now at least), however I’m looking forward to that day when it would all be gone!


Why does facebook disable an account?

If you go through the topic online, you’ll find answers like:

  • if you spam then your facebook id gets disabled
  • if you use fake identity or fake name then facebook may ask you for verification and disable the account too
  • if you violate terms and policies of facebook

Now seriously, this is irritating! Yes spammer should get account “limited”, not disabled, he may not be allowed to send any further messages or so, but disabling? seriously?

Similarly, if you’re using fake identity, it simply means you don’t trust facebook enough to reveal your real name, then why would you trust them to show them your real government issued id even? come on!

violate terms and service? well that’s a very very broad horizon! You can ban anyone and say that they violated the policies or terms.

What’s the solution?

Solution probably seems to be moving away from facebook now. Why would a social networking site be interested in asking for our government issued id? Seriously why? Lets raise the voice and either move away from facebook or else simply stop using it what so ever!

Facebook should introduce something like “verified” and “unverified” ids written or marked in some way on people’s profiles, but it shouldn’t block any id just because they chose not to provide them with government issued document that they would sell like other info of ours to God knows who!

Now I understand that facebook is a free and private website entity and have a right to do whatever they want, the users can simply stop using them if they’re not satisfied, and probably that’s what we’re going to do now!

  4. Hi, my name is Amirafridi I am living in India I was a Facebook user from 2013 to 2017 today I want to tell you my story on Facebook.

    I was loved Facebook and It was my life my business and everything I had 17 big business pages and my personal accounts that i used to run my life until I start getting down by Facebook.

    Within a week Facebook disabled my all personal accounts for just NO reason. They just don’t give me any warning or message before do this things. Facebook destroyed my everything and business and my life.

    After blocking my accounts they ask me to upload my face photo and we will contact you soon. Finally they didn’t contact me! and after 4 days when I tried to open my account again they said you Account Disabled!!

    I just want to say Why? If they can’t find difference between a real or fake person Why do we use Facebook? It’s your problem. Why you give us this opportunity to build our business on your platform? to finally one day you destroy our everything?

    I did everything to get back my accounts but it doesn’t worked. I swear I loss everything and now I am working in a shop to survive. I want to give this message to everyone who using Facebook for personal or business usage. Don’t trust them they don’t care of you and your business because there are 2 billion active users they don’t care of you I hate you Facebook and your company you lost your trust in front of me and people around the world. peace

  5. Yeah my accounts were disabled that I insulted all of them even the employees who are behind these. Mark Zuckerberg is nothing but a bunch of twat who created a website and handled over to the people who can control others. The new policies have become so strict that it is no longer enjoyable. It was good back in the day when I used to spam a lot and I got warning like 30 days, then get back again. But this tome any little thing your account gets disabled. There was a time when I decided to remove some unknown pals repeatedly that it led my account disabled which I never knew about. But now that I know that I know I deeply regret. It is so sad and very frustrating.

  6. my facebook account disabled back or email phone numbar not wroking plese help solve povlem login help
