Are you frustrated because your Facebook ad account has been disabled?
You’re not alone! Many people have experienced this same issue, and it can be a major obstacle to reaching potential customers.
So, here’s the probable causes and your potential solutions for this problem so that you can get your account back up and running.
What causes Facebook to disable your ads account?
The first step to recover your account is to find the reason for the account suspension in the first place.
In most cases, there are two causes: either Facebook’s ad policies violation or your ads received too much negative feedback. There’s a remedy for both cases, so there is no reason to worry.
If you have posted something that violated Facebook’s ad policies, then you should go back and review your ads. It could be adding sensitive information without references. Or maybe there is a copyright issue on particular material that you used in the ads.
In the second case, your ads may be receiving too much negative feedback.
Facebook users you target with ads can share their feedback with the platform. They can choose to:
- Hide the single ad.
- Hide all posts from your Facebook page.
- Unlike your Facebook page.
- Report the ad content as spam.
When a Facebook user reports your ad for any of the issues listed above, it’s marked as negative feedback.
If one or two people report an ad, unlike your page, or hide your content, it’s not the end of the world.
Now, when you’ve figured out the reason why your ad account is disabled, you may be able to connect with Facebook, to request for the retrieval.
Here’s what to do–
