Right in the middle of a meeting I was having yesterday with AGLCC's Jimmy Flannigan and Ceci Gratias, a big grimace crossed Jimmy's face. A message from Facebook came in to Jimmy's computer. Facebook had rejected his ad for Austin Pride:
Ad Disapproval Reason(s):Later, when Jimmy emailed me the pic of the ad, he wrote, "I DID run an ad with the same image and nearly the same text earlier in the year with much success."
* The image of this ad is either irrelevant or inappropriate. Per sections 3 and 8 of Facebook's Advertising Guidelines, the image on your ad should be relevant and appropriate to the item being advertised. Images that are overly explicit, provocative, or that reveal too much skin are not allowed. Images that may either degrade or idealize any health condition or body type are also not allowed. If you choose to submit this ad again, please use an appropriate image that adheres to all of Facebook's Advertising Guidelines.
