    Facebook is making moves to close down over 83million accounts due to spam, TOS violation and many more. Here is the link
    Code:

    Perhaps its time to halt buying fake FB likes till the dust cool off.

    guess it helps their average profit per user if they wipe out that many accounts , sure mistakes will be made

    My accounts have all been given 30 day bans that have been in place for 90 days or more and I have never used any of these accounts to spam in any way. I am not sure if they are going to be lifted ever or just eventually deleted. I can still update my status, but that's it. I can't figure out why they are slapping the 30 day ban on all of my accounts.
