    Anyone know how to get around this? I have no idea why but like 5 domains, even if they are on diff IPs, are marked as spam even though I've never done anything spammy with them, a couple I've never even ever shared before on FB. I'm assuming it's because of my account, but some of my other domains are fine when I post them.

    Anyone know what's up with this??

    Facebook relies on 3rd party services like WOT for determining whether a domain is to be marked as spam or not (considering the domain has never been used on facebook before).
    Few people have success removing their domains from facebook's blacklist by contacting them directly. You might give it a try.

    are you trying to share the same content on all of them? that might be why
    change all the meta tags on the next domain you try
    and reuplaod the image and chagne the size by 1 pixel

    What's WOT?

    No, it's diff content on each site.

    WOT is Web of Trust. It basically defines how "safe" is your website.
    Users are allowed to rate websites using extensions and tools on wot.

    They have a pretty advanced but yet simple backend spam detection system.
    If someone else did malicious activity, the pattern might match your domain aswell. That will put up a warning on your site too. Once it receives enough "Not spam" tags, it will automatically be removed.

    It's based on many factors, though.

    So for example, if your OG title is, say, "Watch Frozen Online : Free streaming" and some spammer did blackhat on "Frozen Online - Stream now" you are sadly within pattern detection
