    Hello my friends,
    I was wondering what kind of affiliate links would require a cloaker to be used. I'm talking mostly about Facebook but other advertising avenues can be considered. I see nothing in Facebook's TOS about not allowing affiliate links. Surely links advertising XXX or dating or obvious "get rich quick" scams should be cloaked (or avoided) but what if one wants to advertise something legitimate, such as an amazon item, or something from a CPA network like ClickBank (sure many items on these networks are not legitimate so perhaps those are the ones to be cloaked).

    I'm not talking about direct linking from Facebook. The path would be: FB ad --> goes to landing page --> direct link to offer's landing page (uncloaked link) --> sale

    Or will Facebook simply block all ads/ ads containing landing pages that lead to affiliate links?

    Thank you for your time and your help.

    Facebook is spewing out a bunch of new rules designed to maximize their profits, this week they put out yet another tightening of their rules about calling to action and what language you should use and where they're putting the image links now.

    Like every other social network, they may ban or ghost-ban you for no reason basically it's a "free" service and all you can do is be as safe as you can.

    I've found that I get accounts banned or ghosted more often that I link to a direct . c0m website than if I link to an interior page of the website. Like they think it's a blog post or something you want to buy and not a landing page. Just my experience. I hate when it looks like everything works, nothing shut down, but zero traffic so you know something happened.:(
