Apparently, the frequent use of some of my favourite words go against Facebook Community Standards, which I think is bullsh*t, because everybody worth talking to includes at least one four-letter-word in their most frequently used adjectives file.
Anyway, I haven’t been blocked by Facebook. I have been shadow banned, which means that my content might NOT be breaking any rules, but they don’t want to show it to too many people, in case it offends sensitive readers.
Sharing the same post too quickly to too many groups, having too much text in your images, even just using too many sales words, like “buy”, “book” or “sale”.
I’m not too phased about not being allowed at Facebook’s “cool kids” table. While this does present a bit of a speed bump if you have been relying on your traffic from sharing to Facebook groups (which will have very little effect on the reach of shadow banned pages), there are ways around it:
There we go, Facebook! We don’t need to sit at your “cool kids” table! We’ll make our own scruffy nerds table and take over the internet with our moxie and resourcefulness!
Even if your page hasn’t been shadow banned, try the above tips and watch the magic as your page grows. Once you have given them a bash, comment below and let me know how these “cheats” worked for you.
Also, I want to hear about ALL your digital marketing problems so that I can help you solve them. Hit me up, my fellow scruffy nerd!
Until then, stay awesome and keep your interweb pimp hand strong! Xx
