10 tips to help you avoid Facebook Jail

What is Facebook Jail?
Facebook Jail is when Facebook punish an account (profile or business page) -it could be that it blocks some features or disable the full account- because it breaks Facebook laws (post inappropriate content, post too fast, give too many likes, etc.).
The penalties range from the impossibility of publishing for a few hours, 3 days, 6 days, a week until the removal of the profile or page. The problem is that reading the terms and conditions either ends up confusing us or flat-out putting us to sleep.
So here I am giving it you you straight. Here are my 10 tips to help you avoid facebook Jail.

So here I am giving it you you straight. Here are my 10 tips to help you avoid facebook Jail.

1. Let some time pass between your posts.

We often end up posting identical content in multiple groups or pages at the same exact time. This is the type of behavior that gets us into trouble with the Virtual Detective or Police that us on the hunt for SPAMMER. My Facebook Professional Solution is to wait at least 90 seconds between posts. I also use three different browsers to post with and have a list of all my Post Locations by individual URL sorted in a spreadsheet by last day posted. I also never post in more than 10 per day. So do 5 over 10 minutes and wait an hour and do 5 more. You can also use paid apps like, Postcron and Hootsuite to schedule them. 

2. Create original content

Experience shows that administrators are often blocked because they’ve used images from Google’s search results, which had already been marked as SPAM. Be sure to check that the photos you post to your site (if you don’t do it yourself) have a proper license so you can use them without having problems. I suggest using Canva to make your own or go to Pexels.com for free images. This is not just limited to image, also text, files and URL links.

3. Make it personal (and be careful with tagging)

Making sure people know who you are significantly reduces the risk of being considered as spam and improves your credibility and your image in the long term. Keeping your Facebook conduct based on honesty and “real” links.
Behavior that you should avoid are: adding people to groups without their consent and posting on Facebook pages with non-personal profiles, such as garage sales or classifieds. Finally don’t tag people directly in  images if they’re not actually in them. I personally am a victim of this. Use common sense, basically, because nobody likes to be tagged in a photo that they have nothing to do with.

4. Understand how Facebook works

First Don’t use the name of a business for a personal account. Facebook wants you to be a real person. As a general rule every human being on the planet can have ONLY ONE Facebook account.

5. Don’t act like a spammer

There are a number of behaviors on Facebook that, besides being annoying to everyone, can threaten the very existence of your account. Also you shouldn’t send friend requests to people that you have no connection to. Also not promoting your business on the business pages of other users. The account managers of those accounts will NOT hesitate to mark you as spam.

6. Beware of saboteurs

There are always people who “play dirty”. Since it’s really easy to mark someone as SPAM on Facebook, there are quite a few users who do it to their commercial competitors just to harm them. I have been a victim of this many times. They call these people TROLLS. If you ever detect such behavior by one of your contacts, the first thing you should do is to block them from your page. 

7. Don’t let Facebook confuse you with a SPAM-bot

Facebook could get you marked as a SPAM-bot, a term that refers to automated programs, created to mimic human behavior on social networks. Basically you have to control the speed at which we like and comment on things.

8. Don’t go crazy posting

Professional Community Managers recommend a maximum of 5-6 daily posts/shares to your personal page at most per day. I also recumbent just post on your business page just 2-3 times per week. Here is my Hacker tip. Create 10 business pages all targeting a different customer base, genre or niche to create variety.

9. Provide accessible and permanent information about who you are.

Warm welcome all new followers who wish to join your page. This assures that users are friendly and welcome them to find out who you are by just looking at the information section of your page. I offer each my Home Business Success Guide and a Gift. 

10. Use “shortened links” on your page biography when linking to your site.

To avoid Facebook from marking your URL as SPAM (for whatever reason), one of the best things you can do is shorten your links. To do this you can use sites like wp.mebit.ly or goo.gl.

Be sure to follow these tips and share with your facebook friends.
