  1. Make New Facebook Account, in case of Emergency


Always remember the following pin-points while using your active Facebook Account. To avoid any issues related to Facebook Jail.

Don’t go insane while posting

Post on an alternate basis. Do not post frequently or Facebook will highlight your account unnecessarily.

Update about your Personal Profiles at a lower pace, avoiding any standouts to be noticed by Facebook.

Avoid Anonymity and Keep it Personal

Try to keep your account personal, to avoid cybercrimes. Or there are high chances that Facebook might think you are running FAKE ACCOUNT. Leading to account issues.

Keep a clean Facebook Account, avoiding any suspicious activities. 

Be careful with Adding and Tagging

Avoid being in touch with people whom you don’t know, and try to keep your account clean with trusted and well-known people. To avoid ‘dirty play’ by Saboteurs. 

These trollers or ‘Saboteurs’ can misguide you and lay a trap for you to fall in. Only you can avoid it by cutting it off in the first place. 

The best way is to not accept or send any request links from or to the people you don’t know.

Use original images

Use original images, videos, and other media to avoid losing access to your Facebook account. Facebook can ban your account, for using and promoting copied or fake information. 

As copied images and data can lead to copyright issues, spreading fake data on a large scale can also mislead many others. 

So, avoid it by using authentic content. 

Don’t act like a spammer 

Try not to send and resend the same messages in groups or large organizations. This activity can urge Facebook to high point your account under surveillance. Eventually, leading to shutting off your account. 

Even if you are using a Business Account, share and promote your data after certain time intervals. Take a break and don’t post or promote your online store daily.

TIP: Always keep your account separate from your Business account, to lessen the chances of getting Blocked or Restricted.

Avoid creating more than one accounts

Facebook does not allow you to post on inter-linked accounts. This action can lead to dropping you off from your account.

So, try to make only one personal account. And if you are running an online business, always use a Business Account.

In case, you want to use both personal and Business Accounts, use them on different devices to avoid trouble.
