Almost a month ago, I returned to Batangas to take a two-week break. I have a desktop PC there so I thought it would be useless to bring my laptop.
Upon arriving after almost 24 hours of land and sea travel, I tried to log-in to my Facebook account through my PC. To my surprise, it asked me to upload my latest photo in order to confirm that I am the real owner of the account.
Because it was night time and taking a selfie is not really clear, I decided to look for some options. It asked me to identify some of my friends through photos. The problem was FB was asking me to identify photos uploaded by some of my friends which I didn’t know. For example, FB shows a photo of one of my friend’s children. I have no idea what their children looked like so I failed the test. I waited until tomorrow to upload my own photo.
The next morning, I successfully took over my account. After a few research, I concluded that FB detected a change in IP address so it tried to block me the first time I tried to log-in – which I totally understood.
Come to another problem. After posting a short message on my wall, I tried to share a link to an article in a Facebook Group where I am a member.
I got an error message (see below)
The message popped-up instantly right after I posted so how come Facebook came-up with this stupidity? My account was never been compromised in the last five years. This is outrageous.
I followed the step and clicked on “This Isn’t Spam”. Since then, I never heard about Facebook, and after a month now, I’m still unable to post anything that includes any link in any Facebook group.
I’ve done a tremendous amount of research regarding this problem, and since Facebook support does not exist, maybe, the only way to solve this problem is to create another account and link your old one.
I have seen several people complaining about the same issue, but Facebook has no solid action.
Before, Google Adsense has the worst support, but they already fixed that issue. I am getting a manual response in the least than two hours by Adsense support.
Facebook is free, but the frustration associated with its other features is sickening.
