Facebook is a social networking company based in the United States and is part of Meta company platforms. The company was established in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg and his counterparts who were students at Harvard University. The platform has created a marketplace where you can discover, sell and buy new commodities. Additionally, you can browse the listing of items provided or find items available for delivery. you if you carry out business against the set commerce and community standards. It means that your access to the marketplace has been removed, and you can neither post nor sell anything on the platform.

Why Are You Blocked on Facebook Marketplace?

Facebook marketplace will not you for no apparent reason, but if you think you were blocked wrongly, here are some reasons why you might be a victim of blocking:

  • Member's feedback. Facebook users give feedback on the content that you post on your marketplace page. If you post sensitive items such as guns on sale, users will report your content which might prompt your account banning.
  • You are overusing a feature. You might be suspended from Marketplace for overuse of a particular feature on the platform. The terms and conditions of the marketplace specify the number of times you are supposed to use a specific segment. Suspending of this type is not permanent and might take a couple of 30 days for your account to be active again.
  • Unusual traffic. If Facebook notices unusual traffic on your account, they will suspend your account for a while. A lot of traffic to your account indicates that you use automated tools such as bots to win more viewers to your marketplace listing.
  • Back-to-back posting. Your account might be banned if you have been posting a lot of messages recently, and most of them have been market unwelcome. All the messages you post while trying to market your items must be insensitive, considering it reaches a different audience.
  • Promoting your business on other pages or groups. You are not supposed to post your items on other groups without permission, as it is a surefire to have your account suspended. Don't do blind posting as it is regarded as annoying and rude as well and puts your account at risk.
  • Questionable tagging. It is advisable not to rush into tagging people too often on your item you have put for sale. Users are likely going to be annoyed by your behavior and report you.
  • Placing links inside your post. Facebook does not allow it and regards it as spammy and can make your account to be flagged off.
  • Posting original content. For every sales post you make, ensure that it is authentic, as repeating the same videos and messages might cause your account to be flagged by Facebook.

Once you realize that your account has been blocked, you should stay calm and wait for 30 days to be over to see whether the ban was temporary or permanent. There is no way you can reach Facebook through a call unless you visit their help center at the bottom side of the page.
