Facebook gone a bit insane with their banned word lists?

    It seems to be almost impossible to start a facebook page nowadays with their "banned phrases" list - today I had a page denied it's creation because I used the phrase "shocking pictures". Is there a ready-made list anywhere so we could get a bit of a guideline when creating pages?

    edit: scratch that, facebook is a lot smarter than I thought. The phrase "shocking pictures" is only banned when used in conjunction with "Oil Spill" - looks like they're filtering by what groups are popping up everywhere at the moment.

    Positive :) I changed the group to show another environmental disaster that wasn't oil spills, and it accepted it just fine.

    And there's definitely a banned word/phrase list - for example, try start a page with "facebook" in it's title.

    Hmm, its possible. They've been cracking down on pages, very annoying. But i doubt anyone here/not working for FB has this list.

    Does it ban your page 2-3minutes after the creation or directly doesn't allow you to create one?

    Directly does not allow creation. There's a tonne of different phrase algorithms, it seems. I can create a group called "SHOCKING pictures of...etc etc", but if I put "Top Ten" at the start, it won't allow it's creation.

    You can't get any word that is sure you are not legal representative of that business/person.

    Try to make some page with Manchester United players like Wayne Rooney or **************'s Cesc Fabregas etc. any could not make it..
