I immediately as requested sent Facebook proof of identification so the review could start. I received the following message when attempting to login to my Facebook account and the message is still displayed today as unfortunately and surprisingly, I am still looked out of my accounts.
Reviewing your information may take longer than usual
Thank you for sending your information. We have received it.
We have fewer people available to review information due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It may take longer than usual to review your account.
We’re always looking out for the security of people on Facebook, so until then, you can’t use your account.
Thank you for understanding.
I have been a user of Facebook for 14 years and had 500 friends on my account, the platform had become my digital home, keeping in touch with old friends, connection with new ones but much more than that very important to my business activities.
For the last five years I have spoken and taught the virtues of Facebook advertising for SME’s and spent money on the platform advertising my business and the business I support. Over the last 6 years Instagram also became increasingly important to me creating a hub of images for those I care about and documenting my everyday life. Both networks also gave me a great resource to look back at good and bad times and pictures of the people I love some of now I have lost.
I would never intentionally break any platform rule and I am 99.9% sure I have not, I have no extreme views and have never posted anything that would cause offense. I have tried I suspect over 100 times over the last 9 months to contact Facebook or to receive some help to get my networks first reviewed and the I hope restored. I know there are many people across the world having the same problem as we have connected over twitter and other forums.
I have a great network on LinkedIn and this post is to ask for help from it, if any of you have a contact at Facebook, an email address or social media handle please do let me know. I have reached out to some senior people at Facebook through LinkedIn but have not received any response.
Through my consulting I still encourage people to use the platforms, I am still solving people’s Facebook communication quandaries and I now hope someone maybe able to help me wake Facebook up a little and get my accounts reviewed and restored.
