What was turning out to be a peaceful Saturday night dinner for me turned into a digital nightmare when Facebook suddenly disabled my account after I sent a photo of a cat on messenger to a friend after receiving it on WhatsApp. That sounds really ridiculous right? Cat photos are really 90% of the internet and why on earth was my Facebook account disabled for sending this over Messenger , not even posting it on my timeline. I was actually chatting with some friends over Facebook Messenger and after I sent this image , I automatically started getting logged out of messenger. I opened the Facebook app and that said Session time out and asked me to login again. I felt something was wrong with my phone or internet, I decided to get online on my computer. Only then It began to strike me that Facebook has actually disabled my complete Facebook account – Messenger , Facebook, Ads and what else I don’t know – in a matter of seconds and I was being logged out of the service on all my devices. I just realized that my Facebook profile with over 3000 friends and numerous photos and messages is no longer accessible.
