There have been so many changes to Facebook over the last 12 months so it’s important to keep up to date with all the new changes so that you don’t get a Facebook ban or suspension.
So in today’s blog post I am going to share 4 things that you shouldn’t be doing on Facebook.
If you are doing any of them, you better stop, because that could get you a Facebook ban or suspension anywhere from 7 to 30 days.
Click hereto see how average people like you are making $25 – $1000 per day with this simple formula.
1. Sending ‘friend requests’ to random people
It’s important to build a relationship with people before sending them a friend request. If you send ‘friend requests’ to random people, they have the opportunity to report you and say that they don’t know you.
And when Facebook get’s a couple of these reports, they could suspend you or even ban you.
If you are trying to grow your friends list, interact in relevant groups and start to build relationships within the groups.
You can also build some good relationships within Facebook pages that are relevant to your niche.
How this works is that you find comments on popular posts in relevant Facebook pages or groups, and then send a nice message to the person who left the comment saying how you found their comment interesting.
If you are going to use this strategy, do not copy and paste. Make sure you visit their profile first so that you have an idea of who you are messaging.
2. Sending mass messages or spam messages to people on Facebook
This is something I find particularly annoying.
Some people like to send mass emails to a bunch of people and the danger in doing this is that you could get reported for sending spam emails.
Again, when Facebook gets a number of complaints against you, you could get a Facebook ban.
3. Liking too many posts/photos immediately after a friend request has been accepted
After a new friend request has been accepted, some people immediately go on a rampage and start ‘liking’ all the posts, photos and comments of their new Facebook friend.
Doing this does not look natural and could turn on the alarm bells.
4. Posting too frequently within a short space of time
When you post too frequently within a very short space of time, Facebook might look at it as spam. So for example, posting multiple times within a one or two minutes might turn on the alarm bells.
If you are using a scheduling tool to post in multiple groups (like PostPlanner), make sure that you space out your posts by at least 2 minutes to be on the safe side.
5. Tagging people in posts that does not concern them
This is a great way to get yourself banned. When you tag people it shows up on their wall, so if you tag them in posts that has nothing to do with them, they could report you.
You only need to have a couple of these reports filed on your account which could result in a Facebook ban.
For example, the guy below, tagged me in his spammy post and I could hit the ‘Report/Remove’ tag button and that would file a report with Facebook (but I won’t do that, I’ll hide it instead ).
When marketing on Facebook, always bear in mind that it is a community and that these are real people. So treat others like you would want to be treated.
Keep things natural, don’t go over board. Any natural activity will immediately alert Facebook.
So keep it real, otherwise you stand the risk of a Facebook ban.
