Facebook’s been banning people for using this popular strategy

It can be a bit frustrating – how often Facebook changes. This latest change means that they are no longer happy with a great list-building strategy that we’ve been using successfully for the last few months.

So we’ve stopped using it, and suggest you do as well or risk getting your site banned like a few others we’ve seen recently.

By the way – you can see from this how critical it is to stay up to date with Facebook changes. At her next live event in August, Kerry Fitzgibbon will be showing you what’s working (and what’s not!) right now in social media, especially Facebook. To claim your tickets please use this link:


So what’s that change that’s getting people banned?

They are no longer happy with “list scraping”.

facebookBannedIt used to be that you could find a competitor’s page in Facebook, use a clever piece of software to “scrape” their list of followers, create a “custom audience”, and advertise to them. It was one of the fastest ways we’ve seen to grow a business, as they’d be your exact target market.

However Facebook is now cracking down on sites that are using this strategy. Even if you’ve been using this technique successfully it’s important that you stop, or risk getting your page banned.

The good news is, Kerry’s come up with a great alternative that Facebook is happy with. She’ll be sharing this (and a bunch of other great tips) at her up-coming event.

Here are the details:
