Hello,
Is there any possibilities to retrieve a personal facebook account? I'm not sure why they disabled my account due to copyright infringement. I received a warning that my fb would be blocked for 3 days and that's fine with me but to disabled my entire account is ridiculous. It's been two weeks already but I haven't received any reply from them other than the initial and default replies to me everytime I submit an appeal. Is there anybody knows if I have a chance to get back my account? Is there anybody who has the same issue and got it resolved? Your answers will highly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you
No chance if you don't appeal it. Now lets talk about time expectations:

There can be .5% of the users that are having the same issue as you. What is .5% of the total users of facebook (https://www.statista.com/statistics/264810/number-of-monthly-active-facebook-users-worldwide/) ?

Now, lets say that there is a team of 20 technicians that work around the clock to clear such issues. Those 20 technicians can fix 2000 accounts in a day (100accntsper/24hoursaday=4.17accnts an hour). If you were the last one to experience the issue, how long would it be before they even got to your issue?

This is extreme, but it allows you to scale what you asking.
Thank you for your response. Yes, I already submitted an appeal. So basically, I will just gonna have to wait their replies about it. That's fine with me..I understand I have to be patient. It's just that so far, I tried to research other users who encountered the same problem with me and they haven't received any response for like a month, a year or even their accounts never get back. Some good memeories even contacts are already synced in to facebook and can't find a way how to restored it if they don't respond us even just the status of our appeal if there's any progress. And just wanna ask if there's really a chance to get back your account even it takes time? Or is there someone already got resolved this kind of issue? Coz so far, I haven't read any issues got resolved meaning all our appeals submitted are just useless.

Disabling you entire account is not ridiculous, they can't disable only part of the account.

You submitted an appeal. Were you successful in proving that Facebook made a mistake?

An appeal may take several weeks to be reviewed. If the appeal is rejected, you may never get a reply.

Regards
Apparently, those links you've shared who has same issue with me didn't get any resolution. Therefore, there's no one got resolved so far until now. So frustrating!

I understand how facebook are very strict in terms of their policies but to disabled the account in a mistake? Or even some got disabled for just one incident without warnings. Don't want to be against facebook coz I enjoyed using it for almost 10 years already but in this one incident, it all turns out in vain..facebook is a way to communicate as well to my family, friends and workmates. The memories you've been together will disappeared in just one blink? Worst thing is, you can't make any account same with your information coz they will disabled it then. Sounds like you're already ban to use facebook. They don't give any considerations. We don't know if that person will violates again to their policy! Tsk.

Sorry, I share your view about Facebook. Facebook has recently been criticized for being to slack. Now they are cracking down when people don't observed the terms of use and community standards. I don't know if they can handle all of the appeals, there must be hundreds of thousands.

Perhaps that they will eventually reply to your appeal and give you another chance,

Farewell

All the more reason to not become dependent on them for your well being!

Ambucias, remember the guy who only had rides to work from facebook friends?
