Okay, kind of niche question here - but this is for someone who knows details about Facebook Community Standards policies for 'spam' or 'fraud'.

I have 3 facebook groups;

  1. Louis Vuitton Under $200 Worldwide Buy, Sell & Chat (56,000 members)
  2. Luxury Brand Obsessed: Live Sales, Giveaways and Chat! (10,500 members)
  3. VIP Vuitton; Buy, Sell & Chat. (7,500 members)

Facebook has now deleted our #1 group; deleted a backup group we made, and then now is targeting our #2 group.

I have no idea why! After many ignored facebook support messages; we got a message from a support staff member asking us to appeal the group. However we still have no idea why it was deleted in the first place.

I have racked my brains; and considered the following possible interpretations that might be thought of as spam:

    • Buy/Sell group. --> Some members, instead of posting in the Buy/Sell format, they post as a discussion, and post pictures in comments. Could this artifically keep bumping the posts and cause facebook the call this spam?
  1. We have live sales in our groups. We only EVER had one in the large group; and when asked to delete violating content, we deleted all videos or links in the group. The group was still deleted. - Could live sales be interpreted as spam?
  2. We have been recently advertising our sister groups in the larger group. Posting up "blah blah blah is happening in +++ group! Drop on by! [link] -> Could facebook call this spam?
  3. We did do some giveaway competitions/charity raffles. One raffle was for a dog shelter (100% proceeds going to the shelter) - while we have done giveaways saying 'join our new group and you will be in the running' kind of thing. We have NOT done that for a very long time, but perhaps is someone reported our group, a facebook bot picked it up? We have since deleted all those videos, however upon the review of the large group - facebook deleted the group anyway.

None of this really makes any sense, but I would like to ask if an expert knows if this similar thing has ever happened before for a facebook group owner? If we knew what was wrong, we would take steps to comply to facebook Standards, but we have been doing this for around 3 years without any troubles.

Best, Jonathan.
