You're Temporarily Blocked From Liking Pages
You've been temporarily blocked from liking Pages on Facebook because of the amount and type of Pages you've liked recently. We've also cleared all of your likes from the past 30 days.
You'll be able to like Pages again in 30 days.
Remember that you should only like Pages you're genuinely interested in. Visit the Facebook Community Standards to learn more about our policies.
I'm blocked from using a feature (ex: sending messages, tagging things, uploading photos, etc.).And, on another help file it notes:
Facebook has policies in place to stop behavior that other people may find annoying or abusive. We've determined that you used a feature in a way that could be considered abusive, even if you didn't mean to.
Why does Facebook limit the use of certain features and what are the limits?Many people caught by the Page like ban have questioned why they have been targeted. But, Facebook is characteristically tight-lipped on exactly why people may receive a ban and what limits trigger such bans. It explains:
We have limits in place to prevent abuse of our features and to protect people from spam and harassment. For example, if someone is sending out a bunch of messages to people they aren't friends with, they may be warned or temporarily blocked from sending messages.
Unfortunately, we can't provide additional details on the rate limits that are enforced.Although it remains unsubstantiated, it has been suggested that one reason that Facebook may impose the ban is to reign in suspect giveaway Pages by taking their likes away. If so, the tactic is doing very little to control the increasing number of like-farming Pages appearing on Facebook.
