Deleted posts containing just the name of networking competitor!
Posted by Jdgreenewithane on 04/26/2013
OMAHA, NEBRASKA -- Recently, there has been a lot of posting about a seriously shameful situation in Bulgaria regarding their routine torture and killings of stray animals. The posts have centered around a courageous German Shepherd dog, Borko, that was beaten repeatedly and paralyzed, and the threats to the kind Doctor that has "adopted" Borko and other strays.

Anyway, a recent update asked for continued donations and sharing of the story. So, I posted that I put it on Pinterest to reach more people about the rescue effort, and the post disappeared. Since I was also watching t. v., I assumed that I had forgotten to save the post. I reposted the info, and it immediately disappeared again, while I was watching! This made me angry, so I posted and asked Facebook if they were so insecure that they couldn't even handle the MENTION of another social networking site. And, of course, that disappeared!

After a few more jabs at FB, I gave up and moved on... But, it still burns my, er, makes me angry to think that 1) they are monitoring all our posts, so there is no privacy, and 2) they can delete anything they want. Oh, now that I think of it, 3) they have previously refused to delete offensive posts which had graphic sexual content and cursing!

Can anything be done about their abusing the rights of their customers?

What are the rights you are referring to? Facebook is not a service provider that you are paying. It's their ball, and their game, leaving you and me with one right...the right not to use them. When you created your Facebook account you clicked that little button that says that you agree to their terms and conditions. This is why they had you do that.
Posted by FoDaddy19 on 2013-04-26:
Your rights when it comes to Facebook are whatever Facebook lets you do. It's their website and their rules.

Look at this way. Do you think you be be allowed to walk into a Ford dealership and start advertising Chevys? Probably not. The same principle applies here
Posted by clutzycook on 2013-04-26:
We (my FB friends and I) talk about Pinterest in our statuses all the time. I wonder why they took umbrage with yours.
Posted by Bee on 2013-04-27:
How do you know it was Facebook that deleted the posts? IF you were posting them on someone else's timeline or on someone's photo then THEY could be the ones deleting it.

Facebook Will Not Let Me Share Animals in Need.
Posted by Bsandberg80 on 02/02/2013
Facebook allows people to use vile language on their site but will not let me share pictures of animals and I am trying to save their lives. How dare they.

That is against my civil rights and they warned me to stop sharing.

I don't see how your civil rights are being infringed upon. It's their site, and you use it at their pleasure, the same as this one.
Posted by Alain on 2013-02-02:
As Trmn8r said, their site-their rules. You may want to consider starting your own website if you'd like to share your animal rescue efforts.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2013-02-02:
If they are very graphic photos of abused animals, someone may have reported it. I've seen other FB members post pics of abused animals and children, so I didn't think it was against any FB rules. If they are photos I don't want to see, I just delete them from my page, but I've never reported them because they ARE sending out a message to others.

Also, if they are photos that have a copyright, that may be the reason as well.

Requiring Phone Number to Access Facebook Account
Posted by Stan.metz on 10/28/2012
DANVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA -- Facebook will not allow me on to my FB page unless I give them my phone number. They did the same thing to my wife and she gave them her phone number. Now her cell phone in inundated with phone calls from soliciters who said they got her phone number from FACEBOOK! So beware everyone. If Facebook demands your phone number in order to access your account, don't give it to them or else your phone will be jammed with idiots trying to sell you something.

I never provide my phone number for companies like that...I give them a fake number or I just reverse two numbers off my real phone number. There is no reason for them to have my number....I don't even give credit card companies my phone number because I pay my bills and as long as I pay them, there is no reason for them to call me.

I use facebook and have not had this problem.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2012-10-28:
I haven't either, Big Al...but that doesn't mean much because I have several FB accounts and they all seem to be different...different formats, different features...One has that stupid date line thing and the others have the old formats...I didn't change anything on any of them, it's just the way they are.
Posted by Vinnie11 on 2012-10-29:
I have a free Google Voice number that I give to people that I feel may be a pain in the tail. It's perfect and it doesn't ring. My real phone number leaked out to the political people and they call me all day long so I feel your pain.
Posted by onlooker on 2012-10-29:
There have been times when checking in from 'new' locations for my 'safety' websites ask for telephone numbers...some are confirmed against your earlier supplied numbers, some are used to send a new code to allow you to sign in again. yeah right, pain in the neck - provide a fake number or a temp number works unless you are waiting for a new access sms...too bad one can not opt out of that 'security' aka marketing BS
Posted by spiderman2 on 2012-10-29:
;They are requiring a phone number for each account to try to avoid dummy accounts. I think the problem stems not so much from not providing FaceBook with your number but if you make it visible on your account (in your contact information) and it isn't private then anyone and everyone can get your number. I think that is what they mean when they say they got it from FaceBook.
Posted by ChuhBaca on 2012-10-29:
I'm pretty sure I have seen what you are talking about. There is a way to bypass that screen and continue on to your page, but you have to really look for it. They don't make it obvious.

Facebook has never asked me for a phone number either.

The same thing happened to me a few years back Sam. I have never had a Facebook account period. I was receiving emails from a number of people on my regular email account. I recognized several of the names so was able to determine it was one individual these were intended for. I contacted her by email and long story short it was realized by the individual my email address was substituted for hers on her account. They got it straight (husband and wife) in short order. I never went through Facebook. The couple got it corrected thank goodness.

Perhaps, in your case, someone who is a Facebook Member can suggest what you do. It is aggravating.

This is very interesting. Can you access the FB account? If not, I'll bet you can get the password reset so that you can, assuming it was setup with an email account you can access. (Use the good ol "Forgot your password?" link.)

Here's a link to an article I found about how to deactivate/delete a FB account. Maybe it will help you:

Posted by sammy on 2012-08-21:

Hi all!

3 weeks ago my friend found a fake Facebook profile that passes through her. She denounced correctly selecting the option: "This account is passed through me." Then from your contacts and I helped to denounce the bill stating that "the bill is being passed by an acquaintance."


I was reading in the help section on Facebook, that if a person made ​​a fake account and does not use Facebook account, you can report it by sending a copy of your ID.

In this case if Facebook does nothing to remove the fake profile, can use this option if you use Facebook account?
Is the risk that Facebook will delete your personal account?

sorry for my English.

I must be old and out of touch because I have no idea what this OP is referring to. I suppose it is some kind of add-on to facebook?
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2012-03-13:
I LOVE playing Bubble Witch saga...BUT, my complaint is, at the end of the game when you still have bubbles left, you get points for them. BUT, the cauldron shows one number but that's not the same amount of bubbles that come out for your points. Here's an example, I've been wrtiting them down but never found how to contact them about it.
Remember, this is at the end of the game, and are the bubbles left over. For example if the couldron shows 12 bubble left, only 7 are released, or it shows 7 left and only 3 are released, this happens every time. I once noticed I had 21 bubbles left and only about half of them were released and we get more scores on those bubbles and they cheat us out of them.
Posted by joyr on 2013-08-04:
level 191 is not a fair level, you always get 4 or 5 balls the same color in a row, you only get 30 balls and lose them to those balls that cause the good ones to go out of the cauldron.

Facebook Does Not Give You Your Free Credits And Gifts When My Team Sends Them To Me.
Posted by Debams5421 on 12/10/2011
We enjoy playing BINGO BLITZ on Facebook but they do not hold up their part of the games. Many other people have complaints but don't, like me, know how to handle the problems.

Capturing my address book and sending unauthorized mail to all on the list

That is a hacker or a virus or something. Make sure your anti-virus is updated, run it, and change your passwords. Facebook doesn't do that, hackers do.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-08-01:
^^^^What ChuhBaca said^^^^
Posted by MRM on 2011-08-01:
ChuBaca, you're absolutely correct that the user's computer has been infected with spywares/viruses. But I would not heavily rely on anti-virus programs to get rid of viruses. Instead, I recommend that you format harddrive and re-install Windows.
Posted by Old Timer on 2011-08-01:
Good rule of thumb, if you see the hard drive light pegged solid and you have not touched your PC in awhile it could very well be sending out 1,000's of spam emails as part of a larger BOT network.

The virus will lie dormant until called upon to do it's eveil work. The best quick fix is to just unplug the PC. Then dig into the cause and cure.
Posted by Vinnie11 on 2011-08-01:
Did you set up Fbook on your cell phone? If you did, chances are you opted to sync your address book. It's a no-no for too many reasons to list but they do so with your permission. They then take your whole address book and attempt to match them with folks who are already on Fbook. When they first started doing it, they didn't even warn you but I think they now have an option where you can choose to link the two or not. Log into Facebook and click on the Friends option right at the top next to their logo. Click on SEE ALL FRIENDS. Look to the left and click on the link that says CONTACTS and see how many "Phonebook Contacts" you have listed. I have none because I did not agree to the sync. If you have contacts there, you most likely did. There is information to the right of the page that will assist you in removing the contacts but I do not know how successful you will be. Hope this helps.

I got one of those messages from one of my friends stating she was stranded in London and would I send her money. I called her--nope not in London--total fake message.
Posted by Old Timer on 2011-08-01:
BEJ, I just got one of those last week myself. Two issues, one I already was aware it was a scam. And two, the idiot had the names all wrong and screwed up.

I sent them back an email and said if you're that close to a Wsetern Union office ask them for a job. I figure you know how they work very well.
Posted by madconsumer on 2011-08-01:
this has happened to me as well. make sure to change your passwords, and go into your email profile, and verify if your email has been forwarded. i had to 'un-select' the forward option.

also report this to facebook via their comment section.

hackers have no life.

Someone on Facebook violated my rights
Posted by Nordjhn2 on 06/28/2011
Someone on Facebook went on my Facebook page without my consent, the person change my password on June 26, 2011 at 1.03pm. This person is causing a lot of problems because she reads the message in the chat box and is cursing my friends on Facebook and she is making a public scene on Facebook. I need something to be done about it, she has invaded my privacy.

Right now am trying to get a new password with the help of my auntie and its not going through and am upset about it. I even call the cops and they say they can't do anything about it. What can you do about this situation? The person who violated my rights name is [snip]. I have to give name because I need to go on Facebook that is part of my daily life, I can't even get into my email address and that where I get most of my contact. How can someone be so evil.

Contact Facebook and explain this to them. They'll probably have you answer a few questions to verify that you are who you say you are. Also, when you choose your next password, make sure it contains both upper and lowercase letters, numbers AND symbols. That will make your password more difficult to guess. Also, check your computer for a key logger as that may be how they got it in the first place.

Good Luck getting your Facebook account back!
Posted by MRM on 2011-06-28:
Nord, your computer is infected with spywares/viruses. When spywares are installed on your computer, it captures your keystrokes as you type in your personal information. I would suggest that you restore your computer to its factory setting using the restore disc or partition.

Maybe you have a FB stalker. I had that problem before, where someone got into my account and changed stuff. The above comments are very helpful...I would suggest looking into their advice.

As for the cops helping...they aren't going to care. Heck, someone just bought 1800 dollar plane tickets to Nigeria using my paren't AMEX card, and the cops won't even do anything about that.
Posted by PepperElf on 2011-06-28:
Wait you know who stole your account?

It sounds like you perhaps gave them your password, or they knew enough about you to guess your security questions.


Your best bet, if you know who the person is, is to file a lawsuit. Assuming a lawyer will take the case.
Posted by tnchuck100 on 2011-06-28:
Why did you give this "other person" your password to begin with? Sharing a password is NEVER a good idea.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-06-28:
A very similar thing happened recently to a young family member of mine. Immediate damage control was employed. The hijacker was contacted personally and persuasively convinced to delete and desist immediately.
Posted by trmn8r on 2011-06-28:
If you gave someone your password, and they used it to enter and modify your account, you must now realize that is a bad idea.
Posted by MRM on 2011-06-28:
Where does it say in the complaint that the OP gave their password? The hacker had gotten OP's password by installing a keylogging program, which records every keystroke you type. Then the hacker uses the captured password to sign in. With the keylogging program, they can also capture your credit card number, social security, and other personal information. That is identity theft.
Posted by tnchuck100 on 2011-06-28:
MRM, because she KNOWS the person who did it. It's unlikely she knows a hacker.
Posted by Sophia Marie on 2011-06-28:
If you know the person who is violating your rights because they figured out your password one way or another then this is not a matter for the police. This does not sound like a sophisticated hacker with key stroke software - - it appears to be a personal issue that is now playing itself out on the Internet.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-06-28:
Great review, very helpful, I'd be upset too if someone phished my account. I hope you reported this to the proper authorities.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2011-06-28:
Sometimes, if you click on something from a Facebook post that you shouldn't have clicked on (such as "someone is stalking your Facebook page" or the various "surveys" that require you to send the same message to your "friends" in order to "unlock the answers", usually via "buying coins"), your Facebook credentials and password would get compromised. I would suggest first, run a full scan using your antivirus software (this may take a few hours compared to a "quick" scan), then download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (a free download; I believe Cnet or PC World magazine has the link) and run a full scan. Then go to Facebook and change your privacy settings, preferably so your page is protected by SSL (secure shell) encryption. This method will also ask you to name the computer you use to access your Facebook page. Also, change your password, and set your privacy to "friends only". If a spammer or scammer does access your Facebook page, he would have to list the name of his computer. If so, then you would have to go to Facebook and change your password again. SSL encryption and restricted privacy settings keeps the Facebook scammers and spammers out.
Posted by Starlord on 2011-06-30:
If someone has obtained access to your facebook account, this does not rise to the level of a constitutional case. The Bill of Rights was never intended to cover a situation such as this. The amendments are there to protect the people from the actions of government gone wild, not that someone you apparently gave your password to (there was nothing the OP stated that said the interloper had a keystroke program, that was advanced by another person.) Every website I have ever seen, pretty much, has a FAQ section, failing that, they usually have a Contact us button. They are the only people who can help you, not the police, the FBI, Better Business Bureau or anyone else. Only FaceBook can fix this problem.

External games and apps are not built or operated by Facebook. You can contact the games support or developer to have your issue resolved. As an aside, Facebook has lost 6 million users recently.

Facebook apps are getting more greedy it seems, with wanting real money for their games. And some are helpful when a problem happens, and some just do not care.

By the way, this problem happens with this game and the price is right a lot for users. I would not put any money into those games to be honest because, they tend to get rebooted a lot during a game. But email the support and im sure they will give you some coins back.

I have played the game and it doesn't cost money. It is probably in Beta mode. In that case, go to the forum for the game (a link should be at the bottom of the page) and click on the appropriate category to see if it is a known problem and take it from there.

Posted by Sparticus on 2011-05-31:
Though I'm not sure they actually delete it. I think they simply de-activate it. If you want it deleted, that may take some other steps I am not aware of.
Posted by Vinnie11 on 2011-05-31:
You first need to recover your password. In the upper right corner of the Facebook page beneath where you would enter your password had you remembered it is a link for "FORGOT PASSWORD". Click it and follow the instructions there. They will send an e-mail to the account you used to set up your Facebook page that will allow you to reset your password. The e-mail contains a Confirmation Code that you will need to enter on Facebook and you will then be permitted to change your password and enter your page.

Once in your page, go to Account Settings and deactivate your account.

They do not actually delete it, they just turn it off so you may want to delete all of your postings, photos, etc... manually. Every time you go to Facebook after that it turns the darned thing back on so if you want to stay inactive, don't sign in again.

Hope this helps.
Posted by PepperElf on 2011-05-31:
FB won't just deactivate an account because you send them an email demanding it.


People CAN spoof email addresses - AKA, sending an email and making it look like it comes from you.

FB needs to verify that it's really you, and not someone who is trying to delete your account as an act of spite against you.
