    Hey BHW!

    FB Banned me for the most ridiculous reasons, truly.

    I got a VPN and have been accessing FB under another account using different IP's. That and a few other tweaks, problem solved.

    Anyway I accidentally logged into my FB account i have been using for advertising WITHOUT my VPN activated- from my original IP that I was using when I got banned.

    I noticed it promptly, and quickly logged off of FB, but my question is - am I absolutely screwed?

    I feel perhaps not, taking into consideration the whole Starbucks Public WIFI IP argument..

    They simply cannot just ban a Starbucks IP - how could they ban mine?

    Any quick info/input is appreciated!

    what makes you think they banned your IP (the one of Starbucks)?

    Just cuz they banned YOU, does not mean they blacklisted the IP itself, in fact, FB (true for Adwords & Bing) doesnt blacklist residential, business etc IPs at all cuz of the IPs nature (dynamic & changing); if it was true, they should have blocked the entire world by now due to the heavy spam they deal with on a daily basis

    Hey Mr Black Jack

    Informative. I appreciate it. I was merely using Starbucks as an example, as a precursor to your point. It didnt make sense to me that they could block IP's with all the shared WIFI connections going on... that's what I meant..

    So they blocked my personal FB from advertising, but im curious what else they block-

    -Unique Account User
    -Payment Method

    Anything else?

    your payment method details & name on the CC, your domain + hosting IP (probably temporary blacklisting) and on top of that, they cross data with newly look-alike accounts of the same niche to come up with statistical assumptions of the probability of creating same accounts for the same advertising niche by N different factors like same country (but different IP or computer etc), location, browser, screen resolution, cookies, same bank (but different account) etc etc at an X period of time. They apply such an anti-fraud mechanism to keep banning users who keep trying to recreate new accounts for the same niche after got banned before.

    This is how they can easily keep banning the same user without banning residential, mobile, business, dynamic etc IPs. Of course such a mechanism is not perfect, hence some users report they got ban for nothing, but, its success rate is probably very high and is perfecting during time.

    Thanks for the info, awesome.

    Would you personally recommend using a VPN or Private Proxy to shield my IP... If proxy is your suggestion, would you say a Socks5 proxy?

    i agree, cant think of a reason fb would even need to permanently ban a ip in the first place.
