    Today I find all my paid ads on Facebook for a farmville guide are getting banned. These are ads that have been running for weeks.

    Is anyone else getting this?

    Yeah...farmville is actually going over to Facebook connect (hosted on its own site) instead of a straight facebook app (hosted on a page on Facebook) in anticipation of the coming problems. They're trying to make a life outside of Facebook, since they're eventually going to be booted.

    This complaint however, has nothing to do with that. Looks like Zynga complained that you were using the Farmville trademark in your ad. It's that simple.

    Seriously? Screw them then. I want to be all plugged in to everything! I want to know when a mouse farts in Canada while my friend in South Dakota smelt and messaged my Aunt in the UK all while making spaghetti in Cafeworld!

    They should just do the simple offers on GPTs that earn them a dollar or two per. They'd get tons of people doing them and it'd be legitimate. Probably pay a bit less but more users would do it.

    I've stopped seeing farmville ads, no experience posting them.
