    Are we allowed to post banners and adverts on our fan page in the FBML page. For example, could I have a become a fan to see a pic, then show the picture with an advertising banner underneath that?

    Thanks a lot,

    EDIT: I have looked into the policies on this and this is what they say:

    1. Special Provisions Applicable to Advertisers You can target your specific audience by buying ads on Facebook or our publisher network. The following additional terms apply to you if you place an order through our online advertising portal ("Order"):
      1. When you place an Order, you will tell us the type of advertising you want to buy, the amount you want to spend, and your bid. If we accept your Order, we will deliver your ads as inventory becomes available.
      2. You will pay for your Orders in accordance with our Payments Terms. The amount you owe will be calculated based on our tracking mechanisms.
      3. Your ads will comply with our Advertising Guidelines.
      4. We will determine the size, placement, and positioning of your ads.
      5. We do not guarantee the activity that your ads will receive, such as the number of clicks you will get.
      6. We cannot control how people interact with your ads, and are not responsible for click fraud or other improper actions that affect the cost of running ads. We do, however, have systems to detect and filter certain suspicious activity, learn more here.
      7. You can cancel your Order at any time through our online portal, but it may take up to 24 hours before the ad stops running.
      8. Our license to run your ad will end when we have completed your Order. You understand, however, that if users have interacted with your ads, your ads may remain until the users delete it.
      9. We can use your ads and related content and information for marketing or promotional purposes.
      10. You will not issue any press release or make public statements about your relationship with Facebook without written permission.
      11. We may reject or remove any ad for any reason. If you are placing ads on someone else's behalf, we need to make sure you have permission to place those ads, including the following:
      12. You warrant that you have the legal authority to bind the advertiser to this Statement.
      13. You agree that if the advertiser you represent violates this Statement, we may hold you responsible for that violation.
    2. Special Provisions Applicable to Pages
      1. Pages are special profiles that may only be used to promote a business or other commercial, political, or charitable organization or endeavor (including non-profit organizations, political campaigns, bands, and celebrities).
      2. You may only administer a Facebook Page if you are an authorized representative of the subject of the Page.
      3. Pages can only post content and information under the "everyone" setting.
      4. When you publish content or information to your Page we have no obligation to distribute your content or information to users.
      5. If you use a Fan Box widget off of our site to promote your Page, others will be able to copy and place the widget elsewhere.
      6. You may not place a Fan Box widget in an advertisement.
      7. If you collect user information on your Page, Section 9 of this Statement also applies to you.
      8. If you display advertising on your Page, Section 11 of this Statement also applies to you.
      9. You may not establish terms beyond those set forth in this Statement to govern the posting of content by users on a Page you administer, except you may disclose they types of content you will remove from your Page and grounds for which you may ban a user from accessing the Page.
      10. You will restrict access to your Page in order to comply with all applicable laws. For example, if your Page includes content not suitable for minors, you will use your Page to block minors from accessing your Page.
    I cannot see that by posting an advert on my page I am breaking any of these, but please correct me if I am wrong. Has anyone had publishing rights removed etc for doing this?
