Weekly Questions Thread – (February 14, 2018 UTC)

Use this thread to ask questions as part of a trial to introduce a Weekly Questions Thread in /r/Facebook. Remember that discussions about being banned, needing to provide ID and account suspension issues should be directed to the Facebook Help Center as nothing can be done here and these types of posts drown the subreddit. Feedback about this new trial feature is welcome.

  1. For some reason, I can no longer log into my account. I don’t think I’ve been banned, as when I went to the account recovery page, it said my account was not banned.
    Here’s what happened.
    1) I was logged out of Facebook automatically because they detected a “security concern” with my account.
    2) When I tried to log back in, it asked me to put in a mobile verification code, which I received in a text message. However, when I put in the code, it said that the code was incorrect or expired.
    3) I clicked the “send new code” button and the process repeated. Again, same result.
    4) After trying about 5 different codes, I texted Fb to the Facebook number to get a new code. Tried that a few times, same result.
    5) Now, I’m presented with a screen saying “Please input the mobile verification code. This is no longer available for your account.”
    No place to put in a code, no code sent to my phone.
    What can I do to resolve this?

  2. I just noticed that facebook removed a friend I had added, and asked me if I know this person to send her a message? She’s a traveling musician so she doesn’t come through my area very often, is this a security feature? I work with a lot of famous people, that facebook might not see that I know, what gives?

  3. Did Facebook just make it impossible to create events longer than a day? A friend of mine is making a weekend-long event, and no matter what he tries it shows up as being several days, with an option to register for each day individually.

  4. I see almost no posts on facebook anymore. I always suspected that facebook was hiding posts, as I never see people I have known for years posting. But now it is at the point where I will be away from a computer for 24 hours, and come back to find only 3 posts out of everyone I know combined. I do not know what is going on, if I have been “unsubscribed” from people or “unfollowing” people, or what even is going on. If anyone can give me some advice I would appreciate it.

    I would ask my friends on facebook, but at this point I don’t know if anyone could even see it.

  5. Every year for the past few years I’ve posted the dictator Valentines meme to my wife’s page without a problem, and this morning after posting it it’s immediately removed and my account suspended. I’m assuming I just have to wait it out because there’s nobody to personally review the situation, correct? What an absolutely unreal practice to put in place.

  6. Why did Facebook change the way that contacts are displayed in your chatbox when viewing the browser version? I want to see the contacts that I talk to the most, not just whoever is online in my friends list, even if some of these contacts aren’t online at the moment!

  7. Has there been a recent change to how Facebook determines average rating and number of reviews on a business page? My page used to state “4.8/5 stars, 32 reviews” and now it’s “5/5 stars, 13 reviews” and yet there are 26 visible (some of which are missing likely due to profile visibility, which has always been a little weird.) Obviously this is good for business, but I’m wondering if there’s been a change in how they calculate or determine what’s valid. I’m happy about it, just curious.
