    I have a few facebook fan pages (related to copyrighted stuff) that have not ever been removed, and I notice there is a facebook fan page for just about every topic illegal or not. But I was wondering how much these fan pages are policed by Facebook to abide by policy, and how frequently they are removed if at all ? I have never really messed in the fan page territory much so I'm far from knowledgeable about them, could someone with more experience fill me in on this?

    They will remove your fan page if they get contacted by certain parties and say they would sue them (Facebook) unless they remove copyrighted pages (ie your fan page in that case). Also, if you violate Facebook ToS, they will remove your page. I heard that sometimes they ban accounts as well.

    I am not saying that anyone will sue facebook for your page or anything like that, just saying why your page can get removed.

    I agree with mzonas, mostly FB bans are encouraged by some stupid fan of yours / or direct competitor infiltrated.

    So fan pages are a bad option for longevity? (as far as webpages you don't own go that is)

    Like I said I really don't know much about this game, but I see fan pages about topics I assume are against TOS but they have been up forever. And like I said I have a few pages that have never been removed now about a year later.

    Just to be clear, I'm interested in these fan pages for ranking them on Google, getting fans of these pages is not really important to me, or at least not a main goal.
