Last night I got kicked off of Facebook. Apparently I violated their terms of service. All I was doing was using a feature on their site. I wanted to change my personal feed from just this blog to my soup.io feed which contains an aggregation of a variety of my content. So I changed the feed url. Previewed it, then wanted to see if I could get the links to work from a couple of the sources, so I used a different soup.io feed. That didn't work, so I went back to the original. This must have triggered some "abuse" flag and I got dumped. I like to think I got Zuckerberged.
Now I can't log in and they are being pretty non-responsive. This is all the info they provide:
"Your account has been disabled by an administrator. If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit our FAQ page here. Facebook enforces limits on the site in order to prevent certain actions that can be considered abusive. Your account has been disabled for persistent and rapid use of a certain feature. Unfortunately, for security reasons, we will not be able to further explain these limits."
I can understand having these kinds of safety measures, but I've never encountered such a thing before. I was using their tools according to how they instructed. Enter a feed URL, then preview it. I expect if you don't like the way things look in the "preview" then it would be okay to change things. That's all that I did.
I hope that they reinstate me soon so I can get back to poking people.
