When you violate Facebook rules (privacy policies), Facebook Jail is what you get. It’s not like Facebook will come to you physically to arrest you. What Facebook does when you violate their policies is, they deny you access to do certain things on their platform which includes:
- Posting on your timeline
- Posting on groups or pages
- Sharing certain information
- Viewing profiles and gaining access to certain persons
Facebook doesn’t like it users go against their rules because what it does is that it affects the platform and its users. This isn’t something Facebook likes, so to protect their interest and that of their users, they immediately take actions against violators. Sometimes before you get restricted, Facebook warns but when you don’t comply, you get put in Facebook Jail.
Facebook Jail Rules
To avoid Facebook Jail, complying with Facebook is of great essence. These are some things you can do to avoid being a victim of FB Jail especially for digital marketers who are trying to use Facebook for promotion. Here they are:
- Create fresh contents when you publish contents about Facebook
- Give quality intervals between posts so your post doesn’t become an abuse
- Avoid anythings related to scams and do not publish spams
- Input your correct details in your Facebook Profile so you don’t get seen as a scammer.
- Don’t post anything that goes against Facebook’s policies
How to Get Out Of Facebook Jail
FB Jail is temporal in most cases because they give you the option to prove and defend yourself. In some other cases like that which involves indiscriminate posting, Facebook could restrict you for weeks or days before you are being allowed to post anything on your timeline or in a group.
Once you are not clear on why you are in Facebook Jail or when it’s taking too long to resolve, you can visit the Facebook Help Center and lay your complains and in no time they would be resolved.
