Tips on How to Stay Out of Facebook Jail

facebook tips Feb 22, 2018

Have you ever found yourself in Facebook Jail?  Whether you have or haven't you'll want to know how to stay out of Facebook Jail, especially if you're using Facebook as your platform to build your business. 

I see lots of people experiencing this and wanted to provide you with what I've learned. Everything I've listed here, Facebook will consider scamming. It doesn't necessarily mean that you are, but in Facebook's eyes it does. If they see you doing this, they may lock you out for several days.

Issue: Posting the same link in multiple places at one time, including pages and groups.                                                                            

Solution: Space out your sharing over a period of several days. This applies to any type of link.

Issue: Posting the same post over and over in different groups. Do you ever notice when someone posts the same thing in multiple groups?

Solution: If you tend to do this, share your posts over a period of several weeks in the various groups -this will keep your content fresh too.

Issue: Commenting on a post over and over. This one is kind of weird, but I get why it's considered spam. Let's say that I do a post in this group and we have a great conversation going on and I reply to everyone that comments on the post. I could put myself in a position to go to Facebook jail.

Solution: I don't have a solution for this one, other than to be mindful at how many replies you do at one time.  I space mine out over the day.  

What Happens if You Are in Facebook Jail?

Being in Facebook Jail is kind like being in a time out.  You won't be able to post or comment for a few days.  You'll just have to wait it out and spend your time working on your email list or other important activities.   

Things like this just reinforces our need to have a platform we own, such as our website and our email list.  Facebook and other social media sites are fantastic tools to help us build and grow our business, but we don't own them.  Best practice is to be sure that you don't have all your eggs in one basket.
