I've Been Evicted By Facebook

Poo on Facebook!

When the Facebook team finds anipals on their site, they delete our accounts. I emailed FB ( to ask what happened:

"Hi, My account was disabled. I don’t know why. I don’t do anything improper on FB. Please tell me how to get my account fixed. Thank you, Sydney"

No one has bothered to reply to me.

It seems that FB is very inconsistent with their treatment of accounts and their enforcement of rules. There are MANY businesses with profiles, yet, some business profiles get disabled because FB has a rule against Business Profiles. There are MANY children and animals on FB, yet some children and animals get disabled because FB has a rule that participants must be of a certain age.

I totally agree with protecting children. But the businesses and animals that are arbitrarily deleted while others are ignored seems very unfair.

Rules are rules. If you're going to choose to enforce them, do it. If you're going to ignore some profiles and delete others, that isn't fair at all.

Evidently, this is the rule they are using to disable my account - because I'm a dog (or because they think that a human is impersonating an entity):
Facebook does not allow users to register with fake names, to impersonate any person or entity, or to falsely state or otherwise misrepresent themselves or their affiliations.

In my defense, I gave my real name, declared myself as a rottweiler, and posted a real pic of me. I do not see in the rules that the user must be a human.

This guy lost his FB account too: I like what he had to say so I'm sharing a link to his blog about it here.

My good friend Mr Breeze lost his FB account too. You can read his blog here.


  1. Poo on FB, Syd!!! How can they resist such a darling?! Anipals make FB much more interesting and colorful!!! I'm glad, we have our pawsome Twitter community and never want to miss you, or any other of my anipals there!!!

  2. Stoopid FB! Well they have got a lot of dogs and cats to get rid of I can tell you. They are so stoopid. We stick to Twitter from now on Syd, where they luv us for who we are - ANIPALS RULE!

  3. Yukky FaceBook. I would suspect I'll get evicted too. If so, oh well - their loss. I won't have anything good to say about dem. It's not fair. If I gets evicted, I will write a letter too. Twitter is definately better..

  5. So it turns out that Facebook Hates Dogs too!

    Facebook furends, please make sure you keep a backup of your photos and links just in case. Da lady had copies of all my photos but hasn't found all my Facebook furends yet and my linkys are gone. I don't believe Facebook is combing through accounts looking for animals but if something (or someone) draws their attention to your account it will be deleted.

    So if you get deleted you have a couple of options.

    1) Your mom can add your profile to the dogbook, catbook or rodentbook app. She might want to start it now.
    2) Your mom can create a page as if you are a business. This is mine:

    The BEST part of all this NOT! is that I can still look at my deleted account through da lady's cell phone Facebook app. I think that means they kept my photos for their own use. sulk sulk sulk

    I'm blogging this. MOL!!!

  6. GRRRRR on Facebook! They is discriminashuning against anipals. That is so rong.

  8. I sorry dis happened to you, Syd. facebook has sum not nice policies on who dey allow. If you nice anipal, you get banned yet dey allow peeple to post mean or offensive things. It makes me cross. Hugs to you. - spike_cat
