I started a new Facebook (deactivated my old one as it was hacked) and readded all my friends. However, as I was adding them very quickly facebook put a block on my account which means i cannot add friends, like/comment on statuses etc. The block lasts for 30 days!
Has anyone else had a similar problem? What do I do?
Also when would the block have started, is it when I was first notified of it?
I am not really happy because I wasn't violating facebook terms, I didn't add strangers or do anything abusive.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Contact Facebook.

But also contact them about your old hacked Facebook. Surely just changing the password would solve the problem?

Hi, I'm having the same issue. How do you contact Facebook? is there a e-mail address or something which they reply to?

If you’ve been blocked by mistake, we won’t be able to end the block early—but you’ll be able to send friend requests again soon. We’re sorry for the inconvenience! In the meantime, you can still use other Facebook features to connect with your confirmed friends.

Thanks. Like the OP has said, do you know when the block would have started? Is it when Facebook first told me I had a 30 day block, which was about 10 days ago? I ask this because I get the notification all the time, telling me I have a 30 day block. I hope that made sense!

I had this problem a few months ago, it was so annoying, as I regularly used facebook to message people, so to be unable to do it (unless on the computer) for 30 days was so annoying. I tried contacting facebook about it, but nothing happened

But it all went fine after 30 days did it?

Ah thanks, that's really reassuring. I'm guessing you weren't notified or anything though after the block? how did you know it had gone back to normal?

Don't worry about it. Use this time to reflect on why you are still using Facebook

no notification, and I just tried sending a message on my phone (which I hadn't been able to do) 30 days after I received the notification saying I had been banned, and it worked

Ah okay, thanks it's weird, I can still send messages to people, but like the OP I can't add people or like things :confused:

Likes are most likely blocked if you are a 'suspected scammer' as likes are used as a measure of advertising effectiveness I believe.
