Violating Networks or Associations

Advertisers must not manage business assets that are connected to other abusive business assets or display behavior similar to business assets that we’ve already taken down. If they do, an advertiser may face advertising restrictions on their associated ad account, Page, user account or Business Account.


To help protect the safety of our community, we also look at associated connections. If we find that an advertiser is connected to other abusive business assets, there may be advertising restrictions placed to prevent further abuse.


Advertisers can’t:

  • Manage business assets that are associated with other violating business assets
  • Display behavior that is similar to other business assets that we’ve already taken down
