    Just as I was about to complete my first media campaign testing different products & ads using Facebook and my ad account gets banned:(.... Anyways I will have to start all over again. Apart from cloaking links (which I didn't do on my first campaign) are there any other ways on how to avoid this in future?

    their automated system is a tough nut to crack. Even with cloaking i have read some members getting their accounts banned. You can however use a different approach of adding a buffer site but then i guess it's ROI decreased. Maybe some blackhatter can help you but post this in social media forum.

    This happened to me also. Account tab is disabled due to suspicious activity even i don't what's that suspicious activity. Have sent an email and reported the same fb risk team too. I've had one week and I am still waiting for a reply. Fb doesn't care to communicate directly. Wait Wait and Die ;)

    the buffer site approach is among the things I'm planning to test next and see whether I can get some decent results because some of the cloaking solutions out there are still out of my range .

    There are users here that sell accounts. You might want to try that to be on the safe side.

    If you are logging in from different countries (either you are actually travelling or using different IPs) this can happen, you just need to go into your Ad account and try to get re enabled by going through a wizard that asks you specific questions and thn respond to the follow up email again with same info nd should get your account back.

    It's tough saying what could trigger that without proper details. What kind of account did you use? Are all of your details real? Did you login with an ip matching your zip code? Did you link it to any other accounts?

    Fb is getting smarter everyday so you might try reviewing your strategy.

    Not easy to say since it could be many different things. But are you logging in from the same IP Address all the time
    and are you using public proxies or private?

    It could also be the amount of disapproved ads you had on your account. Just don't look like an internet marketer when it comes to FB ads. Provide value to your audience first and make a sale later. This will ultimately make your accounts last longer IMO.
