Having this in mind, if you want to save yourself from getting in Facebook Jail then, you need to keep in mind a few essential tips. And, to help you in this matter below we’ve mentioned the 10 most essential tips that you can practice while using your Facebook account in order to keep yourself away from becoming a Facebook Jail victim.
So, let’s have look at the 5 essential tips to avoid getting in Facebook Jail:
Do not post too rapidly on Facebook:
If you have a habit of posting the same content on various groups, pages, and chats, etc and that too at the same time then be aware! This can be considered by Facebook as a spamming behavior and for that, you’ll likely be thrown into Facebook Jail. So, always have some gap of at least a few minutes between your posts even if you want to post identical content everywhere.
Solution: You can use the apps like ‘Postcron’ for scheduling posts. The app allows you to post everywhere at once but while setting up a gap of 5 minutes between each of your posts. This way you can avoid being blocked by Facebook.
Do not post plagiarize content on Facebook:
If you post plagiarize content on Facebook then it can lend you in trouble as it is against Facebook rules. You can’t post such images and content that are subject to copyright and if you do so then no one can save you from getting in Facebook Jail. So, keep this in mind that you can post a link of the already available content as a reference but cannot copy and paste the whole content on your account.
Solution: Create your original content such as if you want you can create your own photos, cards, and postcards, etc using websites like ‘PicMonkey.com.’
Do not tag anonymous users on Facebook:
You need to take extra precautions while tagging people on Facebook as tagging anonymous users on Facebook can lead to your Facebook account being blocked. So, be careful and to increase your credibility in the eyes of Facebook, tag only your real friends on Facebook, and not everyone else.
Solution: If you want to tag anonymous people who‘re not even available in your posted photos and videos, you can do so by adding them in the comments section.
Do not post bad, offensive, or inappropriate content on Facebook:
If you want to avoid getting banned by Facebook permanently then, do not post any provocative content on your FB account such as content related to drug sales, pornography, hate speech, and weapons etc. So, to secure your account, never post any such offensive and provocative content on your Facebook account.
Solution: To understand what you can’t post on Facebook as well as to have control over posting such inappropriate, bad, offensive and provocative content o Facebook; what you can do is set up the ‘Parental Controls’ option provided by Facebook under ‘User Accounts’ section.
Do not behave like a Spammer or don’t Spam:
It’s an obvious fact that no site like spamming so try avoiding it and to avoid it what few things you need to keep in mind are as follows:
- Only connect with users who’re known to you and who actually recognize you.
- Never send too many friend requests to those users with whom you have no connections.
- Avoid promoting your business, product, or service on the other user’s business pages.
- Make sure to not comment and like other posts too much.
- Avoid using the name of any famous personality or know-person
- Do not run multiple Facebook accounts with your name
- Avoid yourself getting into any hate speech and do not misbehave with other users.
- Last but not the least; restrict yourself from posting more than 5 or 6 posts in a day.
It is so because, if you do not keep these things in mind, you can be marked by those users as a spammer and for this, Facebook can block your account.
Solution: To avoid such situations, read ‘Facebook Terms and conditions’ along with Facebook policies for both business pages and personal biographies to understand how Facebook actually works and to make use of the site properly.
However, if by any chance you still lend yourself into Facebook Jail then in order to get out from Facebook Jail you have to send an appeal to Facebook by ‘Filing an Appeal’ form on ‘My Facebook account has been disabled’ page.
