    I have a few fan pages that I post hot girl pictures on. I have been doing this for a couple years now with no problems besides the occasional account block for lewd images. For the past couple days though I am having a bunch of problems posting pictures. Sometimes they will post just fine and other times the image never shows up. I am scheduling the posts through Hootsuite. First I thought it was a problem with their software because at this point I had scheduled posts through several different Facebook accounts and the image didn't posts. Then I thought maybe the links I was putting on some of the images was the problem but the images with no links were not posting. I found out it was not a Hootsuite problem when one of the images did not post and I tried to manually post it from my account and I get a security error. Its weird because I scheduled posts today and the first image posted but none after that. I then thought well maybe it's because when I schedule posts the exact same picture and text goes to 2-3 fan pages. So I scheduled posts to only one of my pages and it still did not post and once again when I went to facebook and tried to post it manually I got a security error. So finally in Hootsuite I created a post and did "send now" instead of scheduling it. The post showed up on Facebook. WTF?

    Sanitize the image header, maybe somehow facebook managed to log the header information. There is a program here on BHW called Batch Purifier, search for it around it should be able to do the work.

    You can find it here: http://www.digitalconfidence.com/batchpurifier.html
    Also, you may try changing the MD5 of the image using this awesome tool here: http://imristo.com/hash-manager-change-the-hash-of-any-file/

    Used them both on a picture that had gotten removed and could not post it again.

    Flipped the same image as mentioned above and it let me post it. Been up for 6 minutes now. Looking good so far. I think I am going to schedule some more posts with the image flipped to see how it goes. Will update later with results.
    NEVERMIND..I started to press the reply button but decided to check the image again. It's gone.

    Didn't want to just leave you guys hanging with this so this is what I think is going on. So basically to try to get around this I was constantly editing and trying to upload the same image. I added a watermark, used batch purifier, changed MD5 and flipped the image. Same thing happened every time. It either would not post at all or it only stayed up for a few minutes and was removed. Well I was kinda in panic mode so I though well I will just reshare some of the old images and links from old posts just to keep the page active. Well while scrolling down through the images on my page I saw that the image I was trying to post I had already posted it a couple months ago. I then started to notice some of the other images that didn't post were already posted previously. So I am thinking that they are really cracking down on duplicate image posts and must have some military grade photo recognition script for it be able to know it was the same image after all the stuff I did to it. I will say for the past couple days I have still had a image or two removed instantly so maybe they are even checking If it is already posted anywhere on Facebook and just not your own pages.Oh and I forgot to mention. If they remove a image unless you just have nothing better to do don't even try to post it again. It doesn't matter what you do to it they will remove it again sooner or later. Some of the bigger brains on BHW may find out I am totally incorrect with all this and hey I hope someone else does find a better work around because all i care about is if I am able to post my pictures and links.

    You are right, after a lot of testing I found that the problem is with images.

    Still looking for a solution though.

    Well like I said I am not having much of a problem now with it. Maybe they just launched it last week and just had to work the bugs out. I can deal with 1 or 2 images a day not posting

    It looks like FB is dialing up the juice on image recognition & linking filters or running some early tests. Keep in mind they can't crack down on RE-SHARES of an original image without killing legitimate functionality for real users so use that weak point to combat these crackdowns.

    It looks like they dialed it back after grabbing some test data, but the writing is on the wall, this will be back with some fine tuned adjustments so get ready if your game is clickable image posts/mass image posting.

    Oh I am fully aware. I have already been trying to think of alternate methods. I just hope that the BHW community won't be afraid to share knowledge when it happens. You don't have to share you marketing strategy but what would it hurt sharing info on how to get past the updated security?

    These kind of infos needs to be shared privately, otherwise facebook will crack them down very fast

    I found that 1 image got all my accounts hit with the security warning and change the password block. All my other posts worked. The one image that was blocked was a national brand and I was using the link from their website. I have also done this with some of the others. What is interesting now is I manually posted that pic again on an account and got logged out a and the temp lock again without using any bot. This is really going to piss off some business's if FB decide to block their images.

    Haven't tried this yet but what about making a group, making some photo albums, upload all your pics. Wait a week and see which ones are still there and link to them. Just a thought.

    Little update: Just posted that same image manually a second time in a different group of mine and it stuck. No block or logout.

    I never got anything that logged me out or made me change a password. Now I would get a message about their security systems if I tried to post a image that they already removed but it was just a message box that I could click OK on. My pictures are not of any brands either though. Just babes

    @lore99 facebook isn't blocking only babes images .. it can be a lion image or anything else.

    Normal images in a group post, not babes. Not blocked but being logged out of the bot (and manual posting) and having the "looks like your account was compromised" message. Change password and all ok. Manually posted the image again in my own groups so it's not a clickable image, just an image, and it's fine. Can't say what the images are but on the national scale such as Ford or Dodge. Big companies brands.
