My Ad For Facebook Got REJECTED Because It Might Be “influential”

So, yeah.

I went to do an ad on Facebook for my book that I’ve been working on. It wasn’t discriminatory, what I wrote. I literally just said, “The What’s So Bad About An Abortion, Anyways? book is meant to bring truth to this culture, and help children know what abortion really is, in a sincere way.” Does that sound rude? HATEFUL???

Absolutely not.

It was perfectly fine for me to want to have an ad for my children’s book.


Facebook wasn’t good with that, apparently.

Not long after submitting my ad, I was emailed and told that,

Your ad may have been rejected because it mentions politicians or is about sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion, how people vote and may impact the outcome of an election or pending legislation. Our policy for running ads about social issue, electoral or politics requires you to get authorized first by confirming your identity and creating a disclaimer that lists who is paying for the ads.”

– Facebook


I am SO SORRY for trying to “influence public opinion”.

What else are we supposed to do?? We are literally ALL influenced by those around us.

I don’t care who you are. You HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY SOMEONE ELSE.

It’s just how it is.

Ah, it just makes me mad. I copied what I wanted off their site in regards to my ad, then promptly deleted my account. Why even bother being a part of such a fascist group…there’s a reason my beau calls it “Fascistbook”…..


Please live with your own ideas and DON’T let groups like social media, silence you.

  1. Ugh, I’m so sorry. I wish I could say I was surprised, but unfortunately I’m not. Facebook has a reputation for censoring, just ask my dad. 😦 I wonder if there are some other social media sites you can promote the book on that don’t censor like that, but unfortunately I can’t think of any.

  2. Duh. That’s the point of advertising…

    I wonder, though, if this policy has more to do with federal laws about transparency in election campaign advertising… still, though, it also makes me wonder if it is applied equally to positions that Facebook agrees with vs. disagrees with, considering that I have concrete evidence that the ability to hide posts from certain pages from one’s news feed is disabled for many prominent left-leaning pages.

  3. GAAHH that is so frustrating. Isn’t being ‘influential’ the whole point of an ad?? But FB lost its mind a long time ago. It really sickens me how they STILL claim to be ‘neutral’ and doing all this for the good of the community and other such ‘nice’ sounding nonsense. Yet they allow children’s books about drag queens and the lgbt community and worse?? Biased garbage.

    I’ll be praying for the success of this book ❤ FB blocked it so I definitely know it's good.
