HOW TO: Reactivate a Disabled Facebook Account

Facebook have quite the draconian usage policy and at any point in time you might find yourself the proud owner of a disabled Facebook account. Do not despair for there are ways to reactivate your account without having to re-create a different one.

The Dreaded Account Disabled Message

All you have to do is send an email to disabled@facebook.com inquiring about the reason that they disabled your account for (usually it’s a hater reporting your profile to be in violation of the EULA of Facebook) and explain your willingness to remove the violating content and if it was just a “clerical error” to reactivate your account.

Other accounts to “CC” in your email:

  • info@fb.com
  • appeals@fb.com

That usually does the job of getting your account back within a period of 2-5 days, depending on whether you actually had a violation or not, doesn’t that sound more like a country’s court system than a websites usage violation?
