You started at 0 and went to the place you have always dreamt of. All the hard work pays off, day after day you started seeing an increase. Yes, I’m talking about Social Media Page presence & visibility, specifically “Facebook Page”.
Facebook has over 1.59 billion diverse users, with a good Facebook Marketing strategy this platform can prove to be the best in all social media networks. Which is why brands are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in ad spend. The traffic Facebook gets is incredible which helps businesses grow and get more leads at very low cost.
The only thing which is daunting for a lot of Facebook Page users is not to get their page banned. For some business Facebook is the way of running and getting your page banned is like closing the doors for customers.
No traffic, no sales and everything in between goes to the direct competitors.
Facebook is very serious about its community and page guidelines, so just in case if you haven’t gone through their guidelines, then you must do now to prevent your page in future. This guide is no nonsense for business owners and marketers.
So what is this so called Facebook Page Guidelines?
- Creating fake accounts
Don’t try to fake. If someone reports you, it will take just take seconds for Facebook to vanish your page and trash it.
- Posting copyrighted content and photos
Pages must not indulge in posting copyright contents from other fan pages or groups
- Collecting user data without permission
If you collect content and information directly from users, your Page, Group or Event must make it clear that you (and not Facebook) are collecting it, and must provide notice about and obtain user consent for your use of the content and information that you collect.
According to Facebook guidelines, every contest or promotion must be run through a Facebook or third-party app. If you are pushing people to like your page in order to enter a contest or a give away, then you’re already violating Facebook’s guidelines.
If you spam your followers through direct messages, by posting too many self-promotional links, or by posting the same link too many times, you may get banned.
- Avoid Nudity & Sensitive Images
Pages must not post and promote sensitive images or anything related to pornography and nudity
Pages, groups and events must not facilitate or promote online gambling, online real money, games of skill or online lotteries without our prior written permission.
9. Misleading people by Name Change & Merges
Name changes and merges must not result in a misleading or unintended connection and must not substantially change the Page’s subject matter
10. Drug and alcohol addiction treatment
Pages, Groups and Events must not promote drug and alcohol addiction treatment centres that are misleading, engaging in practices that are harmful to patients or otherwise violating applicable laws.
