    I don't know if it's just me or if others are seeing this as well. I'm used to losing the occasional account, but I've had a hell of a time getting ads approved for the past couple weeks and I lost 4 accounts today, so be forewarned, they're definitely on the war path.

    Good luck!

    Lots of diet, muscle, skin, etc. All the stuff they don't like all that much. Pretty much everyone I know in this niche has been getting accts banned like crazy lately.

    Lost a "pharmacy" page... but only the one where I had fake likes, everything else seems fine. Where you buying likes?

    No I get all my likes through likes campaigns, I'm not exactly sure what's going on, but I figure that if they have a ton of high - quality holiday advertisers, that's it's probably a good time for them to cull the herd.

    Lately, FB is not auto-approving the ads like it was. If you are on the new accounts then most likely you will be banned.

    A close friend of mine lost 16 facebook ad accounts last week.

    What do you mean "new accounts"? Yes I'm definitely seeing that they aren't getting auto-approved like they used to. Do you have any more insight into this change? Our group has probably lost about 10 in the last 7 days.

    I made a new account about a month ago and linked a card on it with a different name. Went to review and was suspended. I replied to the email that I just didn't want to use my real name on Facebook and sent them my drivers licence and and a week and a half later I got approved lol! Also the site my ad directly links too is know as spammy. CL won't even allow it haha! Kinda surprised...

    Surely FB is now closing on affiliate marketers with niches they hate (diets, dating, weightloss etc), they have just started becoming even more paranoid than Adwords, hence, they will ban your account even if not cloaking, i.e. legit accounts. The problem has started to rise due to mass FB accounts sellers and mass fraud they witness, so, they will probably ban you immediately if they just smell you're on the fraud. However, there are tricks to overcome such obstacles, you just need to stay on the down low, and camouflage your intentions, advertising niche, website and more.

    100% Agree with you, if you set up a page and only post about your promos you'll probably get dumped, try to make it look as a niche page about health, dieting or whatever you offer, mixing news and articles with your "money posts" should keep everything on the safe side.

    Agree to this.

    You need to know the game very well to keep your boat afloat with fb ads now, things will start becoming tougher and tougher everyday from now on :)
