    Thanks… this post saved my ass. What a pain to figure that out. I have my Facebook account set to Russian and I didn’t pay close attention to what would happen if I set my account to a test account… little did I know… :-)

    Thanks for this post!

    I made a test account of my personal one and it was scary for a few minutes!

    Cheers ;-)

    I am in the middle of this mess. I go to get out of the network and it says I am not a member of any networks. Any ideas?

    Same problem as Craig — the Facebook Developer Test Network doesn’t show up on my account. Dang it!

    I sent a message to developer support, I hope it works out…

    My primary account was turned into a test account, and, like you were, I am utterly alarmed. I came across this blog, but when I tried the solution, I was only in the two networks I was in before. I’m not in an other one. Do you know any other solution? Thanks

  6. I created a new test account — wholly apart from my main Facebook account — in order to see how this process has changed. It does seem as though they’ve disabled the ability to undo becoming a test account!

    I am going to continue investigating — I have a few support emails out — and will report back anything I find out. If any of you find out anything, post here!

    hi koni,
    I tried the link u had given. But it wont show any network! so there is not way of getting out of this trap “test account”?

    Sanjeev;
    Did you send an email to FB or how did they fix your account. I badly need to get back my test account into real account because I unknowingly clicked to test account.
    your help would be appreciated.
