So I recently launched my app to the U.S. market..
Naturally I have a social media footprint on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, etc...
So we started marketing efforts.. and tried to boost our first post on FB.
submit again.. DENIED.. WTF..
we file for an appeal after going over the rules for posts that you want to boost and not finding ANYTHING wrong with our ad.
Then we get a response.
I can find the original response but it went something like this.
You have been denied from advertising on facebook because your product is a dating app. We are not accepting any more dating partners at this time.
Yea... my app is a dating app... and i'm just launching.. and facebook doesn't want to take my advertising money? really?
Apparently it's a big problem.. many small dating apps are getting F-ed over on this one. If you google search you find a bunch of small time dating apps complaining about the same thing.. dating back to 2012

Ok.. zuckerass.. what the F..
Now i'm seeing ads for new dating sites hitting the advertising spots on FB.. and I still cant get an ad approved.. what's the deal?
I've heard of other markets getting the same treatment by FB.
Keep the big boys (match, zoosk, pof, okcupid) in place.. and shut down the little guys from getting in the game.
This is a huge blow to my marketing effort.. anyone else on here getting slapped by this?
anyone fight it and win?
I guess for now i'll focus on Twitter..
