    Hey everyone,

    I have created a facebook page a couple of days back, which is dedicated to selling clothes and stuff. I have joined a total of 5 groups related to that niche. My account itself is 3 years old which I had created and forgot about.

    So this is what happens, when I share a status update to above mentioned groups I get an error saying -
    "You have been temporarily blocked from performing this action.
    If you think you're seeing this by mistake, please let us know."


    This error came after I shared about 20 status updates in a day.

    I really don't know what I did wrong or am I doing something wrong. What does this mean? Am I banned from posting to groups or sharing status updates. If so how long will it take for facebook to stop showing that error.

    I am new to all this. So would really appreciate any help I can get.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Did you do any scraping at all through this account?

    No, I didn't. I didn't even buy the account. I created the account some 3 years back seeing the hype around facebook and I thought of checking it out. Then after a few weeks I lost interest in facebook and I stopped operating it altogether, though I used to login every once in a while.

    That account doesn't even have that many friends. What it has is 6 friends and 0 likes.

    EDIT: I just found out - I am not able to join other groups in my niche. The same error pops up.

    well, a sudden action on account after 3 years no posting no nothing, would trigger fb ban hammer, try to get ppl poke you it might go away, or just wait for 12 h, if not 1 week, if not 1 month, but it's probably for 12 hrs only nothing to worry about.
    try to mix your moves, like, add few people, post few stuff ( pic, video, link ) like some status for others, like some fan pages.. never do a single move and repeat it..

    Try to add some other admin to the page and see if the problem still persists.

    Its just because of sudden activity on your account
    GO slow since its a old account with no activity in past.

    Thank you for your advice. I changed the admin and it worked. I am now able to post to groups and add groups in my niche.

    Thank you once again. I appreciate it.:clap2:

    Thank you guys. I appreciate your help. Though I changed the admin, the original is still blocked till 8th Sept. I tried emailing them with no response from their side. Guess I'll just have to wait it out.

    Thank you once again. It means a lot. :drinking2
