What a day it has been. I found out last evening I have been
banned from Facebook. I was not given a specific reason for being ousted and given the boot.
I learned of the situation when I attempted to log in to my
account. I got a message telling me my account had been disabled.
Thinking it must be a mistake I once again attempted the log
in. No luck. Amazingly, I was soon to discover this situation is more common
than most people realize.
First thing this morning, I sent a message to my opt-in
subscribers letting them know I was no longer on Facebook. Amazingly, having
one’s account disabled by Facebook is apparently very, very common.
Within minutes I received messages from several people who
had had this experience or know someone who has gone through this. By day’s end
I received hundreds of messages from people empathizing with the situation.
The great majority of folks had no clue why they got the “big
boot” from the powers that be at Facebook. They could merely speculate.
Deciding to do a bit of research to find out how to get back
up on Facebook, I came across a couple of excellent blog postings.
These are well worth reading.
I will keep blogging about this and welcome you sharing your
own experience if you, or someone you know, has gone through this.
