Why is my Facebook account blocked for 30 days?

On Monday, we changed our ISP and have gone to Gmail. When I attempted to log in to Facebook  I got message that for security purposes My account was locked. Then today, I had to jump through hoops to get the account reactivated and now I have message that I am blocked for 30 days because I supposedly abused privacy policies. I have no idea what I have done. I have never posted anything on Facebook about anyone, never contacted anyone I did not know. All I do is play 2 of the games, and check on my step-sons and niece .Why can’t I find out what the problem is and how do I rectify it. There is nothing any where to give me direction as to where to go or who to contact.

    If you didnot follow the rules of facebook the facebook will block your account for some days. You should not create fake accounts or should not send friend requests to others whom you don't know. Facebook is the best social networking site you should not misuse facebook. Follow facebook rules. You have to contact the FB Support team

    I'm sorry to hear that your account is locked for 30 day! There are two options that you can do for this issue!

    1st : You can always wait till the time period is over - I understand this is not an option you can take since what you do on facebook.

    2nd : you should contact facebook about this issue, since they are the only people who can help you! You should request them for help and they might help you with your issue.

    I faced this problem many times and I've found that usually they block our accounts if we send mass friend requests to the strangers.

    you might have been reported by some people, or added too many account, looking like you're a spammer

    Hi Johanna, I know how frustrating it can be when your account is disabled. The fact is that Facebook does NOT have customer support. But there is a list of contacts at fb you can send email to get you back online quicker but remember to be respectful when you send these emails or they will just ignore you and you may never get it back until the 30 days expire.

    They need to manually override the system and they want a good reason to do this. So explain them what happened and you can also have your step-sons and your niece emailing them on your behalf. Give them this link: http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=disabled .

    So here are the email addresses and include your facebook id with each email. Mail at least once a day and my advice is: don’t give up until they reply.

    info@facebook.com ; disabled@facebook.com ; appeals@facebook.com ;privacy@facebook.com, abuse@facebook.com ; warning@facebook.com ;customerservice@facebook.com ; legal@facebook.com
