    FB just blocked my account because they say they have had a report that it is not a genuine account

    It is a genuine account and I don't understand this - they want me to identify some friends from pictures that have been liked and tagged. I have absolutely no idea on some of these. Is there anything I can do please?


    Thanks for your replies - perhaps FB have a problem.
    My account is in my correct name so can't think what the problem might be.

    And before anyone gets too complacent thinking it's all over- another FB friends has just posted that she's been locked out again this morning ...
    She's untagged loads of photos & not done any L&S since this kicked off.

    Entering them does not break FB rules but FB are blocking access to some accounts and making people prove they are real, there is a theory that this is connected with having a large number of Like & Shares (it might be a FB glitch as access seems to be restored for some without them doing anything or it could be someone reporting accounts. I don't think anyone knows for sure but I think the accounts blocked generally have lots of like and shares.)

    My Facebook seems to keep logging me out (even though I have 'keep me logged in' checked). Every time it does it I have a mini heart attack thinking I'm going to have to do the security checks again....so far so good and it simply lets me log straight back in.

    Yup - I tried every email that was posted on here - nothing.

    And to add insult to injury, FB was STILL emailing me to say I'd got some pending notifications ....

    Finally just now it's given me the option to verify by mobile.
    It wouldn't let me use my registered mobile number (the one I used when I changed passwords last week) but luckily I've got another number.
    Not sure what I could have done if I hadn't had access to a 2nd mobile number....

    So I'm back, but let's see how long it lasts.

    Unlike
    Hi,

    I've just been told that I have reached my Max number of likes, so I need to unlike some companies.

    Before they changed to the new layout I just went through the list of people I liked and unliked those I don't want anymore.

    However, for the life of me a can not figure out how to view everyone that I like any more.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks

    Think Facebook are having another crackdown.

    I have a blog that is totally unrelated to comping, or anything you are likely to win by comping. Went onto Facebook to post my latest blog post link, clicked submit and got the security box come up and had to enter the captcha to prove I was not spamming.

    I have my main page which I use to talk to friends generally and enter a few competitions via.

    The other page is also my name, but job specific and allowed under FB rules- it was this one which only gets posted on about 2-4 times in a week, that got the security box...

    Wish they'd blurdy target the companies that are STILL asking us to like & share.
    I posted a polite message with this link on LOADS but no response

    Hey, I don't know if this helps but check your friends list because I emailed fb and asked for clarification on the blocks and they said usually a friend or a company has to report you for spam before your page is blocked x
    Starting afresh - comping as much as poss!

    Hoping for: some beauty goods, clothes, amazon vouchers, anime, manga, wardrobe, fridge freezer, laptop, an ipad, vouchers for next, exercise goods, a uk break and a wee hol somewhere nice!
    Wishing all a little luck

    Hi guys, sorry for hijacking this thread but I am in desperate need of some help/advice please with facebook so hope I am in the right place.
    It worked fine one night, next day apps wont load or work, like button not working, nothing on messages. As soon as I go to a competition page I just get the top header of the page with no content and cant like/unlike. Not just new ones but also regular daily comps. The strange thing is I can like and comment on individual posts/photos but not pages. Also entered a tombolas which is showing as an app and entered so am totally confused
    I may have done something with my settings with many company's asking permission to post on your behalf so have been checking on the privacy filters, have tried checking/unchecking every option but nothing seems to work, nothing is on a blocked list and as far as I can tell its exactly the same settings as I had before. Have tried different browsers, cleared cache, different computers, googled and sent feedback to facebook. I am at a total loss as to what to do next
    Only been on facebook a few months, bit of a novice still, only use for comps, never liked and shared, have under 1000 likes, just the one account so have done nothing wrong as far as I am aware and have had no notifications from facebook.
    I hope some of you experienced facebook compers may be able to offer me some help please. Thanks for listening!
