Thanks a lot Facebook for sucking myself and millions of users across the globe into your social media world and not caring one ounce about any of us.
A few words of advice for everyone out there – BACK UP your profile. Here are the directions that I took directly from the Facebook Help Center. It’s been a long time since I did this and I’m just praying that my entire account will be in tact once they look at my drivers license and see I’m a real person.
- Clickat the top right of any Facebook page and select Account Settings
- Click General in the left-hand column
- Click on “Download a copy of your Facebook data”
- Click Start My Archive
Other piece of advice, if you are an admin for a Page (i.e. business page), make sure to have one other person an admin. I remember someone else mentioning this awhile back and should have immediately made Anthony an admin. I believe that since I was the only admin, they removed my business page too.
I’m just praying that I will get an email from Facebook very soon saying my profile and business page are back. That’s really all I want.
UPDATE: As of Monday January 14th late evening, my account and business page were reactivated. The email I received was short and sweet saying everything should still be there. It was a relief to get that email, after stopping for gas on my way home from a newborn workshop in the DC area.
