Is anyone here a Facebook "expert" with whom I could ask for advice? I am new to Facebook and having some problems being locked out of my page due to "suspicious activity" according to Facebook.

Any comments would be appreciated!

Thanks Glenn for the quick reply. I've been there and done that. Facebook support has been less than helpful!

I'm certainly no expert but if you login to facebook from different devices, it may send you a message about it - I can't remember what the message was but I know it raises a red flag.

I would delete the account and start over.

What the OP is talking about is commonly referred to as 'facebook jail.' It seems that people have had their account access suspended most often for infractions related to politics or porn.

Do either of these match some of your facebook habits?

I think you just get an alert or email for signing in on diff. devices, not a full flagging of the account.

I'd add that while you're reporting to FB- make sure you use the same device each time- to establish consistency.
