    I currently do pretty well with FB ads in other areas but after the recent changes to Bing, it is not worth my time/money investment anymore with Clickbank. If possible, I wanted to move my successful campaigns to FB. Is anyone successfully advertising in the Health/Weight Loss niche? I have a cloaker if needed but I was just curious if it wasn't allowed completely like dating/relationship niches.

    Thanks guys!

    Can you add a little more than that... Do you have experience with attempting to use them, cloaked or uncloaked?

    Of course they do, its one of the biggest niches in the world right now. They aren't going to tun their back on all that cash.

    Do you have any direct experience or are you just assuming?

    They allow health niches. But the approval time is ridiculous, took me more than 10 hours, sometime 1 day to get my ads approved.

    Check their policy, they ALLOW health niches, just follow their term then you are absolutely fine.

    I turned off my adblock and it was the first thing I saw. Don't you ever see these ads in your feed? I did read recently that before and after pics aren't allowed though (not sure if this is correct or not)

    Read this: https://www.facebook.com/policies/ads/#prohibited_content

    I ran weight loss ad in FB but i don't think they will ban your account. But you can test it by yourself.
    Thanks mate

    To all those who saw diet/health ads on facebook - It proves that cloaker is doing it's job as it should, and you have been CLOAKED!

    It depends on what health products you are promoting. If it's the Dr. Oz Garcinia Cambogia type ads then facebook won't run it without of course cloaker.

    My Direct experience with health niche says that You can still Advertise Diet Campaigns Because there are lot of campaigns running out there. Just cloak the campaigns, and you will be fine. Regarding getting approval, If you have direct contact with reps in facebook, it would faster getting your ad approved.

    You must use good cloaker, if not facebook will ban the account. Did you tried to run the facebook ads before?

    You can absolutely promote the health niche. They have some stricter restrictions in that niche but if you follow their rules you can post ads all day long and have them all approved. I ave multiple clients who are in the health niche and ads are approved within minutes. Biggest tip I can give it to read their ad guidlines carefully and follow it to the tee.

    I have this bookmarked : https://www.facebook.com/help/160689807399424

    Edit: I never used cloakers to promote health ads, you can do it completely white hat.
