Anyway, that is why we set up a Facebook page with news, event reports and photos. Today I received a notification that my page was set offline and is under review. A little later I received a notification the page was deleted:
No further info or messages, no warnings or rerquests to remove or modify anything, just: delete right away.We have removed your Page from Facebook
Your appeal was reviewed and we confirmed that your Page goes against our Community Standards for misrepresentation.
What you can do
You can go to Account Status to review and respond to any restrictions and find more resources.
You may have the right to challenge our decision in your country's courts. You may also be able to refer our decision to a certified dispute settlement body.
Ofcourse Facebook has to monitor things. But with a page that exists over 10 years in the same format, and with no recent postings, we all of a sudden have a misrepresentation issue? Did I make it come across that this was an official BMW AG page? Spread hate or untruths? Perform illegal or commercial activity on an enthousiasts' page? None of the above!
We also have a very active FB group with approx. 14.500 active members (similar number as the number of memnbers/likes on the page. I spread the news there, together with my view on this modus operandi. Therefore, I expect that the keepers of good manners at FB will ban me completely. They may even send men in balaclavas to pick me up and you may never hear from me again.
