Anybody BANNED by Facebook for targeting custom audiences ?

6 replies
Hi guys, since September 2014, targeting User IDs in custom audiences is officially not allowed in FACEBOOK ads.

I want to know if you know someone who has been banned and if yes what kind of ban this was. If account ban or domain name ban.

Thank you.

    A few things have happened to various people:
    1. Ad Account Ban
    2. Ad Account Ban + Personal FB Account Ban
    3. Ad Account Ban + Personal FB Account Ban + Domain Ban + Spouses FB Account Ban + Business Account Ban

    A domain ban is usually reserved for those spamming FB

    Does anyone know if building lookalike audiences from scraped Emails is ok? I know it's not exactly in line with the TOS, but would they ban for it?

    On the whole, you get what you pay for.

      I wanted to ask the same. Since many people right now target either UserIDs or Emails, what is the risk behind and was somebody banned since the change in Facebook ToS in September?

    If you get banned for knowingly breaking policy, you deserve it.
