Millions could be BANNED from Facebook if they break three simple rules

FACEBOOK is one of the largest social networks in the world – and with it a lot of rules.

The company has really had to expand their policies over the years, which has to do with hate speech, fake news, and more.

Don't break these rules if you want to keep your account

Violating the rules can result in a temporary suspension – or worse, a permanent ban.

But some are more obvious than others…

Don’t use the correct name

Facebook doesn’t want some old thing to be used as your name.

As the rules state: “The name on your profile should be the name your friends call you in everyday life.

“This name should also appear on an ID or document from our ID list.”

This means that symbols, numbers, unusual capitalization, repeated characters, or punctuation are not allowed.

That means unless it’s offensive, Facebook probably won’t notice.

Don’t use your account enough

If you don’t log into your account for a long time, Facebook may decide to delete it altogether.

It’s not clear how long you have, but Facebook’s policy website says it could “empty accounts with prolonged dormancy.”

The firm will “request additional information about an account before taking any action, ranging from temporarily restricting accounts to permanently disabling them,” so you may receive an email warning beforehand.

Nudity and sexually suggestive posts

Facebook doesn’t want nude photos on its platform.

But the rules have had to be refined over the years to distinguish the sexual from the non-sexual.

Therefore, visible genitals are not allowed except in connection with birth and postpartum moments or in medical or health context situations.

Female nipples are also prohibited unless showing breastfeeding or for medical and health reasons.

But the detection technology didn’t always work properly and some accounts were wrongly banned.
