Facebook Policies & Standards


FacebookIf you’re using Facebook for business, it’s best to take a bit of time to understand Facebook’s Rules and Regulations and Policies e.g.

If you do you will avoid some of the common pitfalls. For example, did you know that:

  • Personal Timelines and friend connections must not be used to administer promotions (ex: “share on your Timeline to enter” or “share on your friend’s Timeline to get additional entries”, and “tag your friends in this post to enter” are not permitted).
  • Ads must not contain profanity or bad grammar and punctuation. Symbols, numbers, and letters must be used properly.
  • Facebook permits open and critical discussion of people who are featured in the news or have a large public audience based on their profession or chosen activities but remove credible threats to public figures, as well as hate speech directed at them – just as we do for private individuals.

As with any marketing vehicle that makes sense for your business, it makes sense to read the fine print.
