Some time back I shared an article on How to ban someone on Facebook fan page and sometime by mistake you might have banned legit users. In this quick tutorial I’m showing how you can unban any banned member from Facebook fan page. Now, many of you must be wondering should we ban people who liked our page or just warn them?
Ban users or warn them for spamming?
First of all, keep in mind that you are responsible for anything happening on your Facebook page. As an admin, it’s your role to decide if you want to ban or just warn someone. Spamming have different form and one of the common one is self-promotion. I manage almost 8 Facebook page as if now, and some of them have fans over 55K and are very active.
Initially I tried to warn users, but it never helped me to stop spamming and useless comments on any high engaging posts. From my experience, I strongly believe spam attracts spammers. If any page is not highly moderated, and spammers are finding it easy to spam it with useless comments, self-promotion, affiliate links, it will attract other spammers. The quickest way to deal with this is, delete the comments and block the spammers.
How to Unban Users on a Facebook Fan Page?
In order to unban someone, go to Facebook fan page, click on People like this (Below no. of fans who liked your page). With new Facebook design, this may be changed, so you need to figure out where to see all the likes of your page. Here is a screenshot from ShoutMeLoud Page:
Now on the pop up window, click on banned from drop down on top left.
Click on unban from the banned user and that profile banned will be removed from your Facebook fan page. This is quick tip but I’m sure you might find it handy when you have to unban someone from a Facebook page.
