    So far today I've had 5 accounts banned just from changing the websites on them with URL shortening sites, Google, Bit.ly and Tiny URL.

    None of these accounts have been used for spam and are all legit. Any idea why they're getting banned!? Surely it can't be from a shortened URL?

    Did you use public proxies when creating the accounts? Maybe someone else is spamming with your same footprint.

    Maybe you were reported. Even if you weren't spamming and trying to interact with people more naturally, some users might have thought you were a spammer just based off of your profile.

    URL shorteners were banned on FB for a while but last I checked it was lifted.

    2 of the accounts were created manually on separate phones and the others someone gave to me, I can understand that the others might get banned as they were created on a bot (not sure which one) but the 2 legit accounts...
