Facebook Account Temporarily Unavailable

What will you do when your Facebook Account suddenly becomes unavailable?

For a couple of seconds my Facebook account was temporarily unavailable. I could have written about this on my Social Media blog but it's currently temporarily unavailable too. 

You see, I've gotten my LinkedIn account suspended, my blog down for several days, my Tumblr account suspended, my Reddit account unavailable - all of these happened in just one week. Yet the weight of all of these didn't seem to matter to me when compared to what just happened: My Facebook account was unavailable for about 5-10 seconds. 

In that span of time, I thought about what I could have done as a backup plan. Perhaps I should have downloaded my account activities, perhaps I should have connected with my Facebook connections beyond Facebook and many other "I should have" thoughts came rushing on my mind.

I have to manage over 20 pages on Facebook as an Online Community Manager/Social Media Strategist and I live and breathe social media (figuratively and actually).

I thought about how am I supposed to manage those pages, how am I supposed to re-join exclusive Facebook groups if I have to re-build my Facebook profile. I thought about the over 3,000 Facebook connections I have built over the years, all the Facebook updates, the photos (which I always delete from my computer and camera as soon as I upload them on Facebook). 

For one second, I realized Facebook owns me. 
My data. 
My work.

And since I didn't do anything stupid, there it was. 



Hitting the Refresh button 3 times, my Facebook account was back. Nothing to panic and worry about but long enough for me to ponder upon several things: 

What will you do if your Facebook account gets gets permanently suspended? 

Do you have a back-up plan in place just in case that happens?

Sun Cellular Network Expansion in Panay


Sun Cellular Expands it Network in the Visayas- Stronger Network Coverage


There are a couple of exciting news from Sun Cellular that will definitely "WOW" everyone. First, Sun Cellular kicks off Visayas network expansion with a widened coverage in Panay, which means that there will be wider and stronger network coverage. The other exciting news is that Sun Cellular recently launched its newest offering for all Sun and BlackBerry lovers - the Sun BlackBerry Social Plan. 


After boosting its network reach on the larger areas of Luzon and Mindanao, Sun Cellular now kicks off on its Visayas expansion through a widened coverage in Panay Island.

Encompassing the famous provinces of Iloilo, Aklan, Antique, Capiz and Guimaras, Panay is well-loved for its rich cultural heritage, native delicacies and colorful festivals like the Dinagyang in Iloilo, Ati-Atihan in Aklan and the Manggahan Festival in Guimaras.



Sun Cellular then eyes on augmenting the tourist experience through the provisioning of a wider and stronger coverage in the region and along the surrounding areas.

Charles A. Lim, Chief Operating Officer of Sun Cellular said that, “We want to back the best experience of our country with the best experience of our services. As we strive to achieve a more robust network support, our customers can look forward to worry-free travel experiences with Sun Cellular".

Prior to expanding in the Visayas, Sun Cellular has also sought to boost its coverage in other parts of Luzon and Mindanao. Lim said that the network is also very particular on enhancing its service on the top vacation spots of the country. Included in these improved areas are Baguio City and the Cordilleras up north, and Davao and Cagayan de Oro City down south.

Through these developments, we see to it that our enhanced services are felt even beyond the realms of the home and the business. As much as possible, we’d like to extend the promise of a better Sun Cellular network in areas where our customers would go and travel to,” Lim explains.

Given the continuous support of its new mother company, Sun Cellular remains keen on covering more and more areas for its large-scale network enhancement project this 2012.
