UPDATE: Without explanation, my account is restored.
Just one day after I conducted a webinar teaching others how to use Google Plus, I have been banned. This is hopefully a bump in the road, but I’m still waiting.
To the best of my knowledge, I haven’t violated their terms of service or breached the Community Standards guidelines.
In fact, the worst thing I’ve done there is to report Santa Claus for being a fake profile.
Was one flag all it took? What exactly did I do wrong? Please tell me so I can correct the matter, and lift the ban on my profile. I am representing me there, interacting with nearly 5,500 followers, and have organized all my circles. I have taught several hundred people how to make use of the service, and shared what not to do (avoid being a business brand). So – why am I suspended?!
Here’s hoping Google gives me back my Plus.
