Several Ballarat Facebook pages which were purged last week have been restored.
Ballarat Community Health, St Patrick's College and the Ballarat Football Netball League are among pages now back online.
BFNL manager Shane Anwyl says it is a great relief despite not getting any formal explanation from the tech giant.
"It's certainly a relief because I think social media is the most important channel to get our messeges out to the community," he said.
Meanwhile pages including the WRISC Family Violence Support and the Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyle Centre remain blank.
