UPDATE 07.06.2018: After days of new reports coming in, we’re 100% sure Facebook is cleaning the house, hard. They are taking no hostages and deleting millions of fans without any hesitation. It doesn’t matter if your page is 50k or 40m, they’re all at risk.
While we don’t have any concrete information, a small fraction of our clients (on SWAPD and ViralAccounts) is reporting deleted fanpages/accounts. It seems Facebook is doing their annual (quarterly?) purges again.
We have noticed chatter about:
- deleted fanpages
- suspended accounts
- lost access to IA

- they can
- they think they’re cleaning up the place
What can you do to fix this?

About 8-9 months ago these forms were buggy (had some kind of loophole) and they nearly instantly unlocked every suspended account (it did for me), my account was canned for something severe and after countless appeals and “no’s” from Facebook reps they were the only forms that worked. But, it was a while ago and things may have been patched.
If those forms didn’t work, or you’re looking for fanpage related forms, here is a good article that will help you out: https://fanpagecash.org/2016/12/how-to-contact-facebook-and-get-support/
You can also email Facebook directly using these emails:
We want to know, have you lost your social assets in this latest purge? If so, care to tell us about it?
We would also appreciate any insight on the latest tips/tricks of recovering lost accounts/pages.
