Remember: Facebook is Free


I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who told me that her Facebook profile had been deleted — not hacked, deleted by Facebook. I wondered how this could happen and, unfortunately for her, she posted a picture that Facebook deemed to be inappropriate. According to my friend, Facebook notified her with a strongly worded warning message and before she could do anything or even respond to the message, her account was deleted. I’m sure you know someone who has had their Facebook account hacked or deleted, it may have even happened to you. First you feel violated, then isolated, then the reality hits you that your account is not coming back. Do you rebuild? Can you? How many people do you have to recontact? It’s a daunting task to say the least.
