Have you ever experienced that one fine morning when you try to log-in to your Facebook account and you have been told by the mega social networking site that your account has been disabled temporarily? Or are you experiencing the same problem right now and want an instant but easy solution? Well in both the cases you are at the right place.

There are two reasons why Facebook disables your profile on its own. First reason is that knowingly or unknowingly you have broken some of the terms and conditions of Facebook. It can be anything like using the improper name or fake account or even misrepresenting yourself as a celebrity. Your account can also be disabled by Facebook if you have to post something which you should not and also sending too many friends requests.

The other which is a tricky little reason for getting your account disabled on Facebook is a mass number of people have reported your profile as improper. So if a certain number of people have ganged up against you and have requested Facebook to disable your profile then too your profile can be disabled for a temporary period.

In both the cases there is a solution and here it is.
