When it happens to you, you will be shocked, angry, dismayed and depressed. What is it? Getting banned or blocked from sending friend requests on Facebook. FB apparently set up something to stop spamming, but it’s not working the way it was originally intended. Innocent people who are just trying to make friends are being banned by this system. You can get banned for sending just one friend request or for one person saying that they don’t know you. And the bans can last anywhere from two days to thirty days and you can get banned over and over. FB encourages its members to add friends in many ways then bans them for trying to add those very friends that FB suggests. It is totally illogical and does not benefit the members or FB themselves.
I formed a group on FB also, which in less than two months reached over 1000 members who all have the same problem. But this is just the tip of the iceberg and the problem is getting worse. To add insult to injury it is impossible to contact FB to complain to them because they have no customer service. Sign this petition. Join the group on FB, FACEBOOK BANS FRIEND REQUESTING. Add your voice to this protest so that Facebook remains the best social networking site on the Internet.
