If Facebook disabled your account for a reason best known to it, you won't be able to access your account. According to the Facebook help centre, if your Facebook account has been disabled, you'll see a message saying your account is disabled when you try to log in.

On the other hand, if you don't see a disabled message when you try to log in, you might be having a different login problem. To resolve that trouble, you can try resetting your account password.

What to do if your Facebook Account has been Disabled
There are certain things you need to do on Facebook if your account has been disabled. Mind you that Facebook can't just disable your account if you haven't violated Facebook community standards. According to the Facebook help centre, Facebook disables an account that does not follow its terms of use.

To ease everything, here are some of the Facebook terms which as a Facebook user, you need to get yourself acquainted with to avoid your account being disabled.

1. Firstly, posting content that doesn't follow the Facebook Terms will warrant Facebook to disable your account. There are some contents as a Facebook user you're not expected to post while on the giant social networking website. A typical example is a content that infringes on people right, a nude picture and others.

The point is, as part of Facebook terms of usage, you're not allowed to post contradicting content on Facebook. Peradventure, someone reports you to Facebook, Facebook will check out what you actually post and if, against the standards, you'll be disabled immediately.

2. Secondly, using a fake name on Facebook will trigger your account to be disabled. Facebook advises its users to always sign up an account with names that are accepted on the site. For those of us that are not aware, there are names that are allowed and those that are prohibited on Facebook. See Facebook naming standard here.

3. Thirdly, impersonating someone on Facebook is not allowed. If you impersonate somebody on Facebook, you've automatically violated Facebook standards and the penalty is that your account will be disabled without a second thought. Facebook does this from time to time in order to protect its users' privacy.

4. Another thing is continuing behaviour that's not allowed on Facebook by violating Facebook Community Standards.

5. Finally, contacting other people on Facebook for the purpose of harassment, advertising, promoting, or other conduct that's not allowed. All of these are things if done will force Facebook to disable your account.

Avoid your account from being disabled by observing the Facebook community standards.

What to do if your account has been disabled by FacebookFacebook normally issue a warning before disabling an account. However, in some cases, Facebook may not issue a warning before disabling your account.

Having outlined that, if your Facebook account was mistakenly disabled, there is a way you can hover around Facebook and get the account restored or reactivated. But note that Facebook can't restore accounts that were disabled for severe violations of the Facebook Community Standards.

There is a form which you can use to submit an appeal to Facebook. To use the form, click here. Note that you have to fill the form correctly by providing all the necessary questions that may be required of you before your account can be restored.
