• Hello Lisa,

    Just came to this post. Facebook sometimes behaves weirdly. A Few months back I changed my Internet service provider and they locked the account. I have to contact their support and need to upload some documents to get my account restore.

      Thanks Vishwajeet, that is for sure! Wow = I haven’t heard that one and I’ve changed mine 2x in the past 3 years. Interesting, thanks for sharing that with us. It may help others. Have a great day Vishwajeet!

    Hi Lisa,

    I am also facing the same issues but in Facebook ads, my Facebook business suit, where I can manage my ads is suspended. Now I am not able to create ads, delete ads.

    Thank you for sharing your experience.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Peter, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. How long are you suspended on Facebook? Do you know why you received a ban?

  • Divya Sharma says:

    I’ve banned by the Facebook only once. I knew one of my posts were not following the guidelines of fb that’s why I already removed that. I contacted them immediately and they uplifted the ban from my page. This took me around 30 days in order to get my account back.

    Thanks for this valuable guide. This gonna helps to the many newbie like me to save their Facebook page from ban.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Divya, Wow, 30 days! That’s a long time if you relied on it for business. I’m glad this guide will help you going forward. Welcome to Inspire To Thrive and thanks for sharing your experience with us here. Make it a great day!

  • Hi Lisa,

    Thank you so much for providing such an authentic article on Facebook Ban. This is really helpful for the Facebook page owners from getting saved from the ban made by Facebook.

    • Lisa says:

      You are most welcome Priyanka. Welcome to Inspire To Thrive! Yes, I’ve heard of others since my writing this that have been banned from one part of Facebook vs. all of Facebook too. They are making changes so rapidly today I don’t think even they can keep up with them. Have a great day!

  • Moss Clement says:

    Hi Lisa,

    Great points to take home here. I have not been banned before and not looking forward to it. However, as James noted, Twitter wrongly suspended his account for a few months, and a similar incident may happen to any of us on Facebook. Understanding what to do when it occurs is crucial. Hence, your article is timely and practical.
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Moss, I’ve had several suspensions from Twitter over the years which turned into my most popular post of the decade here on Inspire To Thrive. It can happen to anyone. Some are permanent and some are temporary. Twitter has been over the top lately with it all though. Now Facebook is catching up 🙂 You are most welcome and I hope you take the steps to secure your account now. Make it a great day Moss. Thanks for coming by.

  • Hi Lisa!

    So sorry to hear that you were affected by this! I’ve been fortunate not to have any Facebook bans yet but I am definitely paranoid about it, especially since I was wrongly suspended by Twitter for months before they corrected their mistake.

    Your idea to add a second person as an admin is a great one and is something I hadn’t considered before, I’m going to do that now. Here’s hoping I never need it, but definitely best to be prepared!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi James, Thank you. Don’t be sorry, every mistake or problem gives me more to write about 🙂 We make lemonade out of lemons, right? No need to be paranoid, just be sure to follow the steps, and then you will be PREPARED. That’s all you can do. And now there are so many new social network platforms out there that time spent on Facebook for the first time went down in December. I just read that yesterday, more to come! Make it a great day there James 🙂

  • Lisa,

    Thankfully, I’m not much active in social media promotions. As Ryan said, blog commenting and blogging can help building network, greatly. Saying so, I’m not completely against social media, still, I feel one’s blog or website is imperative.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Sathish, Yes, those working on blogs with most of their time can also network through blog commenting, communities and forums. Thanks for coming by on this one and make it a great day!

  • Yikes! I was so surprised to learn that you were caught up in the Facebook algorithms Lisa. These social media oligarchies (a term I’ve been using since I watched Mark R. Levin bashing them) are out of control. They’re openly targeting conservative voices yet are striking with a broad sword. You’re one of the last bloggers I’d expect to be banned.

    On the other hand, I’m surprised neither Twitter nor Facebook have banned me yet (for my QuietNoLonger site). Last week, I downloaded my data files from both sites. (Not sure what I expect to do with them but it never hurts to have backups.) Like you, I’m concentrating on other alternatives to big tech. I’ve run into problems with embedded videos from tweets and YouTube that worked months ago and are now returning 404 errors. (I’ve even encountered this on major sites like Fox!) I’m trying to source my videos from BitChute and Rumble as I move ahead. Thanks for the Parler and Rumble tips. Can’t wait for Parler to get back online.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Sherryl. I was surprised too 🙂 I hadn’t even posted personally in weeks on Facebook when I got the ban. But now I’m reading they are censoring things from the past as well though even then I didn’t have anything political there except about the Hydrocholorquine that I took for Lyme disease years ago. I’m surprised they have not banned you from that website Sherryl. Strange how they pick and choose as well. I love the Rumble video network. I still use YouTube from time to time but I love having the freedom of choosing between the two video sites now. You are most welcome for those tips 🙂 Thanks for coming by on this one and commenting. I hope you have a great week ahead.

  • This is great advice. I’ve been to FB jail before but it was before I owned a website. I am literally going to add another administrator today (just in case). I have a fairly large audience so it would be really terrible if I got a ban! Thanks for sharing – Nikki

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Nikola, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. What did you do to go to FB jail? If you can add 2 administrators I would do that too. You are most welcome and make it a great day there!

  • I work as a clinician in what Facebook considers vice categories: CBD, cannabis, and kratom. Recently Facebook has been flagging and removing content years old content including me holding my book Vitamin Weed and me teaching doctors about medical marijuana laws at a university. I’m scared now that I can’t even use Facebook to reach the doctors and patients that would buy my books or book a consultation with me.

    Thank you for your advice. I currently don’t have any other admins on my account, but clearly I should as Facebook is cracking down on even normal accounts!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Dr. Michele Ross. Welcome to Inspire To Thrive. Wow, I had not realized they were removing old content like that too. Yes, I do recommend you have at least 2 other admins for your page just in case. It’s always best to be prepared. There are other social sites out there now too like MeeWee and Minds I’m exploring more and will be writing about them in near future. If you do videos be sure to check the one on Rumble. Thanks for coming by with your input on this one Dr. Michele and have a great day.

  • Hi Lisa,

    I couldn’t imagine you of all people got banned from FB. I see now that you caught up with wacky algorithm.
    We always have to keep in mind that social media is all rented space. This is why Email is still a winner. I’ve been trying to get folks to join my email list but I need to do more work on that end. Maybe offering a free something lol.
    Since this whole thing with FB and Twitter is going on, it really moved me to make sure I can capture peoples email.
    And that’s a good thing because I engage every day on my list.


    • Lisa says:

      Hi Donna, LOL, right? Yes, social media is most certainly a rented space. We have been saying it for years Donna. I agree email is a must today but we have to be careful with which service we go with. Some are also censoring and deleting people as well 🙁 I’m on my 2nd full week of not posting or engaging personally on FB and Twitter. I will be sharing the results in an upcoming post here. I will say this, I felt like I left the jungle. Time will tell if it will return to any form of normalcy or not. Meanwhile, many other alternative social network sites are gaining momentum and Parler is poised to come back as well. Social media I believe will become quite fragmented by the end of 2021.
      Thanks for coming by on this one Donna and enjoy your day ahead and weekend.

  • Lisa, thanks much for the shout buddy 🙂 I spend no more than 5-10 minutes on social media these days for this specific reason. I figure it is easier and more profitable to be social through genuine blog comments on the blogs of buddies whose values mirror mine. Most of all, I befriend bloggers who value free and open speech through their blogs. Humans can agree to disagree, in a public setting, and still get along just fine.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Ryan, you are most welcome. You have said it quite well! Values do make a difference in what we do and how we do it. I’m having a hard time finding humans that disagree and still get along just fine these days. But I’m still looking and always have hope 🙂 Without our health and hope, we have nothing. Thanks for coming by on this one Ryan and make it a great day and rest of the week there.

  • Bren says:

    As you well know, I was banned from Fakebook for posting a true article from a website they did not like. More censoring of the truth which is what they like to do. I was banned for 24 hours from commenting on posts, 130 days from commenting/liking/unliking on groups or pages, and 30 days from commenting/sharing/hosting live videos. The article wasn’t even bad. Just for the record, don’t share anything from Clouthub to Fb or you’ll get smacked down.

    I can’t understand why what happened to you, did. Made absolutely no sense. Their rules are getting me stringent and in favor of the left. Righties, Liberatarians, and others should beware.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Bren, I think I was caught up in their algorithm. I had not posted anything since January 7th on my personal Facebook and it was about their FB page changes coming. Before that just about weather. Wow, 130 days on yours for those groups or pages? Very interesting. Has your ban come back yet? Facebook just wanted me to confirm myself to release my Facebook ban. I hope to hear from others who had the ban as well. Thanks for your input Bren and make it a great day there!
