    I tried to publish 2 different ads. I followed all the guidelines. They responded finally after 15 hrs saying that my ads were disapproved because i didn't follow guidelines 8-9. Well thanks for narrowing it down. Facebook ads really suck!

    Won't waste my time with that crap again!

    if you get your ads approved you will get alot of impressions, not many clicks, and even less conversions. some people say that it works for them, and alot more say it sucks. i say it sucks

    Facebook audience isn't there to lose weight or make money quick...they're htere to share their pics with friends, have political debates, play games and all other shit that we can't make money off....
    just find a scheme in which involves any of the usual activities found on facebook and you'll see the $$$ flowing in...Personally I haven't thought of one way to do this, just yet.

    but it doesn't !!!as to say you can drive better traffic than that of adwords or other PTC networks coz the guys who come through facebook are in search of something let's say dating premium site for free, and freebie's give aways and all that so you can well target the ad's...I have 3 blogs just dedicated to facebook ad's n they make much CTR than that of other blogs/websites which are hooked up with Adwords and Azoole ad's...so, try tricking them...is my advice

    Even if you get in I heard that it doesnt even convert well at all. So I will just drop them and move on.

    I've never had an ad turned down, but then i really, really follow their guidelines. I also avoid any kind of "pitch" because i'm aware they can respond badly to that.

    I get approved by using massive qualifiers, such as payemnt amount and terms along with what is required of them, exactly. I've yet to get a positive roi on FB ads though.

    I'm always puzzled though by how there's so many gambling ads on a site which manually approves all ads and doesn't allow gambling... Serious cocks as Facebook me thinks.
