Aibu to want to keep my selling profile on fb?.
I set up a new profile and joined several selling groups to mostly sell but also buy stuff locally. I did this so that I wasn't annoying my friends by selling stuff on my real profile. Fb have now blocked me twice. Anyone got any ideahow others get away with it?

Try setting yourself up as a page or group rather than as a person. Might work.

No. It's against the rules.

Set up your account so that your regular friends don't see your posts, or join private groups.

Otherwise, Facebook will eventually penalise your main profile, and you won't have Facebook at all. They are really cracking down on fake accounts.

A page could work, but you'd have trouble proving you were a private seller as a page. Setting up your own group is a solution, but it's not ideal if your main activity is posting in other groups.

Others get away with it because they aren't getting reported. Someone doesn't like you.
