Facebook Will Not Let Me Share Animals in Need.
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
INTERNET -- 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.
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.
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 on
Rating: 1/51
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 set up 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:

(I found the link on FB itself.)
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.

Facebook Does Not Give You Your Free Credits And Gifts When My Team Sends Them To Me.

TAYLOR, MICHIGAN -- 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.

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.

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.
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 a while 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Venice09 on 2011-06-17:
Just because a service is free, as is my3cents, that doesn't mean the owner shouldn't try to accommodate the users. Look what Facebook users did for Mark Zuckerberg.
biomajor on 2011-06-17:
have you updated your Flash Player?
Cwazychicken on 2011-06-17:
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 I'm sure they will give you some coins back.

HRM Bee on 2011-06-17:
I do not see where the OP states they paid any money, how can the OP demand a refund?
Buddy01 on 2011-06-18:
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.

Hello!

I've deactivated my account with FB in the past. You simply goto:

Account->Account Settings.

Then scroll down to the last option to deactivate.

Hope this helps!

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.
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.
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.

No Common Courtesy
Posted by on
For three days I have been unable to login to Facebook and have sent many emails to the support team begging for assistance. Being a senior citizen with health problems, I use Facebook throughout the day for amusement and connection with others. The site will not even acknowledge my emails.

It seems to me that a company with such a positive image should at least have the common courtesy to reply to such a problem. Not only am I angry, but I am also disappointed that the site has proven to me that it cares nothing about its users.

Yes they should have some common courtesy, but they are also a free site. Not excusing them, just saying. They do have a positive image, or else millions would not be on Facebook everyday.

Why not start another account, with a new email address , and send your Facebook friends an email from your new account, so they can find you.

Unable to get Assistance
Posted by on
In the last couple of weeks, I noticed that my list of the pages I marked as "like" has disappeared. Still have my friends list, but not the like list.

Trying to wade through all the so-called "help" features is a nightmare. When I get to what I think I want, I find it doesn't even come close. There's also no way to contact them with a question. Seems like they don't want to be bothered by anything other than adding more users to the mix. -(

I was curious about how hard it would be to fix your problem, and it turned out very easy, at least easy to report it. Go to "my account". Then click "Help Center". You will see lists of services. Under "Facebook Apps & Features", click "Like". At the very bottom of the page, it will say "Have a suggestion? Tell us about it.". Click that, and underneath "Submit feedback for Facebook features", click "Comments and Likes". The 3rd sentence down says "Need to report a bug with the "like" feature, click here". OK, seems like a lot of steps but it was actually very fast. From there, you should be able to report your problem to them.
