Users around the world take advantage of social media platforms to showcase their talent, their likes and dislikes, their everyday activities, and all of their lifestyles that they wish to share with the rest of the world. Business accounts use pictures or images to describe and explain their products and their items in a better way. All these advantages are not restricted to a particular medium, either it is Instagram or Twitter, Facebook, or SoundCloud, users can use the platforms to give a better understanding of their content.

Note: On social media platforms, it is better to be assisted with some sort of a video or an image rather than just going through the content which is only meant for reading.

Among all the social media platforms, Facebook is one of the top-most ranked mediums through which you can connect conveniently to the large mass of people at a time across the world. Just by typing the name, you can connect with the people you want, or by uploading the content, you can reach your target audience. Within a few taps, you can have the entire list of activities your followers are doing, and you can explore a lot more about your audience to give them an excellent service.

Whatever you share on social media platforms with your followers or your friends, gets spread quickly with the press of a button, which has the potential to be seen by the world as soon as it gets uploaded. This means the hundreds, or thousands or whatever number of followers you have will see your post as soon as you upload them. This is why you should ensure about the content you are going to post-it should not be an offending post, and adheres to the guidelines of that particular social media website which you are using.

Sometimes, there are situations that a social media post tends to get removed or “disappeared.” This can be troublesome as no one would want their posts to be disappeared unnecessarily. There are many reasons as to why pictures get disappears from Facebook on their own. Let us take a look at the guidelines you should focus on-

  1. Sometimes the bugs prevent certain photos to be viewed. This happens when certain images go missing temporarily. This particularly happens due to the mismanagement of the bugs. These issues are resolved after a while on their own.
  2. The servers of Facebook sometimes can get disturbed, and this is why people report that certain pictures, especially the older ones (i.e., the ones posted a few years back).
  3. The website also removes certain images in case it comes across any violation against the terms and services of the website. These pictures are the ones which might be offending in some way or the other to the users. These may include any remark against a political party or any type of verbal abuse or any other adult images.

Some steps that you can follow in case you find out that a single picture or even many pictures that you uploaded are not being located by you anywhere in your profile. These steps and measures are-

  • Hold on and be patient and wait for a few hours if the pictures are deleted all of a sudden. Most of the time, there are chances that your stuff is deleted because the server is down. The servers take time to be maintained properly. It might take an hour, a few hours, or even a day or two. You will get to know when the site starts to work smoothly when you access it. Hence, wait until the time the website is made up properly to be functioned.
  • If the images do not appear even after trying for a lot of the time, you can contact Facebook and report the problem. You will get to know as to why your pictures have been disappeared, and if there is a procedure to be followed, you can follow it up.
  • You can give an eye to your email, and you will get to know if the picture has not been removed because of being violating any terms of service of Facebook. If this is the case, you will get to know the reason as to how your uploaded pictures are violating the terms of service of the site, and then you can make the necessary changes to upload your photo once again if it can be done. Otherwise, do not try to upload such pictures in the first case itself.
  • Go through your other albums on the site in your profile. There is a strong possibility that the picture you wanted to upload might have gotten saved in some other album. Give a check to all the albums to locate and find the picture which went missing.

This happens in the cases when you must have uploaded the picture/s via your mobile, either through the app or the browser, and there is a chance that your “Mobile Uploads” album is full then the site creates another album of Mobile Uploads which gets added to your profile. Try finding out where your pictures went.

  • Log out from your account and then log in again at the same time to see if the problem still pertains. This problem also happens if your network connection is not proper. Therefore, you should try to reload the website, log out and then log in. You should also once try to switch off and then turn on your mobile cellular data or the Wi-Fi that you are using.
  • There are also chances that you must have edited the privacy settings and must have prevented certain users from viewing your posts. If anyone informs you that the pictures you have uploaded have been removed, make sure to check that the posts are appearing on your timeline correctly or not. There are chances that you might have prevented some users from viewing your posts, or you have set the privacy settings to “Only Me” which lets restricts the viewing of the images to only you, and no one can see them on your timeline except yourself. If this is not the case, then the picture or the posts have actually been removed. Otherwise, edit your privacy settings as per your choice.

Pro tip: Always keep a back-up of your images in your system. This way, you will have a secondary option to find the lost images or any other media for that matter. Do not only depend upon Facebook to keep your content.

Facebook is a convenient place to share about yourself. You can update others about yourself as what is going in your life. These apps are convenient to use but at the same time might create problems- while using social media platforms, you have to be patient to figure out what might be going wrong.

All the features related to social networking or the internet come across some or the other technical glitches. You should ensure that no mistake has been committed from your end and then look out for further steps that should be required to be taken in order to improve the situation.

Keep in mind about your audience that they do not get offended or feel uncomfortable with your post. The tip is to realize that if a post can cause harm to one person, then it can cause offense to the whole family, the whole society, and the whole community. It is better to prevent such situations from happening. Keep a check on what you do and think before posting something online. Remember your audience and their priorities, do not rush for the popularity only.  Never give Facebook a chance to remove your content. Be a smart user!
