    Hello dear friends, i got a strange problem today. I was immediately logged out and blocked after i posted a photo on my 50,000 users page ..
    the photo was about malnourished children and the caption was like "Today 2000 children will die of malnutrition, be generous, donate whenever you can" .. only 2 seconds after posting this pic, i was logged out and i got the message " you have been blocked from posting photos for 7 days" ....

    the strange thing in this which i cannot understand is what is wrong with the photo pic, how and why i was loggged out, blocked only 2 seconds after the post .. and also i have not not been blocked for 7 days despite getting this warning .. i also did not get any facebook warning by mail .. can someone help me here please

    thank you

    The caption was the reason you got banned. Facebook doesn't appreciate children and death in the same sentence. The algorithm for spam must have misread your message and hence you paid the price. Nonetheless, one should refrain from using such pictures and children are a sensitive issue in all social networks.

    i agree with cybor, just read how the sentence starts:

    Today 2000 children will die

    Facebook spam filter should automatically ban any post starting with a sentence like that, no matter what you write after

    Maybe it was the word "donate"

    Definitely something in the caption or the picture itself was flagged by a lot of users quickly.

    Just be careful in the future.
