Facebook is the face of social networking but as more and more people use it as a way to connect with family and friends, some are finding themselves disconnected just when they get the hang of using their account. So why are people getting locked out of a network that's supposed to keep them tuned in to the latest updates on friends and family? We've compiled a list of Facebook violations you should avoid so Facebook doesn't slam the door in your face.

ONE: To save time we often copy and paste the contents of an email and send it to several people. Save this for your personal email account. Facebook recognizes this as spam.

TWO: Forget nicknames. Facebook likes to know the true identity of its users. Facebook has little tolerance for people who prefer to hide their names.

THREE: This is a good rule for any site...don't post offensive content. Although this may be a subjective topic, use some common sense.

FOUR: He may be your best friend, but make sure he's not looking for friends on Facebook. That's right, cats, dogs, hamsters, fish and other pets cannot have accounts. Facebook is for humans.

FIVE: No matter how quick witted, clever or interesting you are, Facebook only likes you in doses. If you post too many messages, Facebook could ban you...remember everything in moderation.
