Facebook bans the iAmAttila fan page

5/19/2017:  UPDATE & GREAT NEWS – After filing my 11th appeal with Facebook, they have unbanned my Fan Page and said sorry, their system made a mistake.    Again, just like in the past when it comes to huge traffic sources, persistance pays off.     

3 days ago, I got notified that my page has been unpublished by Facebook.     To my shock of course, because why would they unpublish a fan page that I built over 4 years and has 100% organic followers.

I send them an email, and at first get a canned cut n paste reply saying it violated policy.  Then I write them again, and one is nice enough to look into it.   To my disbelief this is what they say:
I have just heard back from my internal team who have advised that your Page ‘I am Attila’ has been unpublished for causing people to like or engage with it unintentionally in a misleading way.

Our Page Terms state that: ‘Pages must not contain false, misleading, fraudulent, or deceptive claims or content.’ All Pages must comply with the Facebook Page Guideline. For more information, please read the Pages Terms: facebook.com/page_guidelines.php.

This is absurd,   now I really wonder if I should even bother making a new page, and starting from scratch when they can just on a dime take it away for no reason overnight.    Fuck facebook.

    lol. Welcome to the club. The club consisting of every unfairly banned adwords, adsense, ebay, and facebook user.

    THIS is why monopolies are bad. THIS is why big mergers are against consumer’s interest. THIS is why you never put all your eggs in 1 basket.

    • Thanks, yup I don’t have all the eggs in one basket, sadly there’s only one FB where 99% of the population waste their life away that I need to reach.

    I guess that’s what happens when you discuss cloaking on Facebook ads, running shady sweepstake offers on Facebook, etc.

    • well you may continue wondering because that isn’t why they removed it, they removed 300 pages of ours at once…
