FB Targeting by Age?!

10 replies
Does anyone know why you're no longer allowed to target people by age on Facebook for shirt ads?! They keep getting rejected.

Any advice would be appreciated!

    I doubt its because of age. Did they explicitly say that your ad was disapproved because of age?

      Yes, this was the message after it wasn't approved:
      Your ad wasn't approved because it violates Facebook's Ad Guidelines by using profanity or addressing the age, gender, name, physical condition or sexual orientation of people on Facebook.

      Maybe it was because the shirt I was advertising had a specific birth year on it? It had the text "Made in 19__).." but that was it! No profanity or anything else. It's confusing because I've seen other people not having any issues with this.Any help would be appreciated!

        It is likely due to this or something around this, did your ad have a picture of this or mention this in the text?

    Facebook ads cannot mention ages. Facebook have option select email id. You can choose id facebook by use software (FB lead chef) to grab active id (like or comment).

      Either keep submitting the ads and hope to get it through, or change them up to fall in their guidelines

      Did you read the facebook ad guideline stating "Your ad image may not include more than 20% text"?

      If not, read the ads guidelines first.

    They must be getting rejected for some other reasons. It sounds crazy otherwise.
