    Default Facebook Blocked Website URL

    Facebook blocked my website URL, right after I did a load of postings to the page. I think it was an automated block. It has removed all facebook posts that link to the website, whoever shared the post. Now if you click a link to my website from a facebook page - and there is just one remaining, on my website's facebook page in the "website" section, it says it is blocked because the site might be 'malicious'. If you attempt to share the page on facebook from the share plugin on my website it says people have reported the site as 'abusive' and it can't be shared. Oddly, the actual facebook page has not been unpublished. I have had them unpublished before, but this is different. There is some info on this problem online when I google it, but not much. If you use the 'facebook debugger' it refuses to do anything because the site is blocked - though that is where there is a link to report the problem. Has anyone else had this happen before? Was it temporary or permanent? Could you get it reversed? Thanks for any feedback.

    Did you have anything political in your posts? You might have run afoul of their M̶i̶n̶i̶s̶t̶r̶y̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶T̶r̶u̶t̶h̶ manual reviewers.

    No, I did two posts to two newly-published articles, both on basketball. It's a US affiliate site, established, not spammy and the site is clean on securi etc and does not have any malware. I think I may have triggered some sort of spam filter or anti-gambling filter. At this stage I am more interested to know if anyone else has had this happen and how it played out. It seems more often the page is just unpublished by facebook, but to entirely block the website, remove all posts and leave the facebook page alive seems a bit more unusual. When I did google search on this I did see the political stuff could cause this, but a lot of the info I was reading was from a few years ago. Couldn't see many people complaining about this happening to them recently.

    I had my bingo page unpublished a couple of weeks ago for not being pre-approved. So I went through the correct channels and they wanted me to have email confirmation for every site featured of their gambling licence and assurances that they would stick to their respective country laws - yeah, like that's practical and feasible to do.

    The solution, forget it and set up a new page, see how long it manages to keep under the Facebook radar.

    Yes, I think that you should just start over again and see how you go from there. I'm sure you should be alright.
