If you want to enjoy Facebook’s platform, you must abide by its rules. Below are the five types of accounts that Facebook bans.[bctt tweet=”5 types of accounts that @Facebook bans. #socialmedia” username=””]
1. Accounts Affiliated with Dangerous Organizations
Facebook accounts that are affiliated with organizations engaged in terrorist activity or organized criminal activity will be deactivated. Facebook will especially ban accounts that post content glorifying or celebrating violence and hate. Although Facebook bans accounts that glorify forbidden content, it still allows broad discussion and social commentary on those general subjects. However, Facebook encourages you to show sensitivity towards victims of violence and discrimination when discussing subjects about violence and hate.
2. Accounts Involved with Criminal Activity
If your page or account is involved with criminal activity (i.e. business or group pages that sell illegal drugs), Facebook will take it down. If necessary, Facebook will also notify the authorities.
3. Accounts Involved with Fraud and Spam
Profiles or pages that use misleading or inaccurate information to artificially collect likes, followers, or shares beware—your account may be shut down as Facebook considers these accounts fraudulent and spammy. Facebook may also close your account if you contact people for commercial purposes without their consent.
4. Accounts with Multiple Profiles
If you have multiple profiles, Facebook will ask you to deactivate the duplicate profiles to ensure that all of its users have authentic identities.
5. Accounts That Impersonate
If your profile impersonates a real person, then your account will be deactivated. For this to happen, someone must first report it. Facebook will review the report and determine whether or not the profile is fake. After it has determined that it is, it will take the profile down.
