What is spam?

Spam involves contacting people with unwanted content or requests. This includes sending bulk messages, excessively posting links or images to people's timelines and sending friend requests to people you don't know personally,etc.

You might say for businessmen and marketers,this seems to be a common thing.Because they often do this in order to grow their business.However,doing this can easily be regarded as spam,which can make your content not be seen by more users,and your account also has the risk to be blocked.When we know the Facebook policy well,we can avoid these problems and grow our account and business with ease.

Let’s take a look at the Policy Rationale of Facebook

As Facebook put it,they has always worked hard to limit the spread of spam because they do not want to allow content that is designed to deceive, or that attempts to mislead users, to increase viewership.

This kind of content creates a negative user experience, detracts from people's ability to engage authentically in online communities and can threaten the security, stability and usability of Facebook services.

They also aim to prevent people from abusing their platform, products or features to artificially increase viewership or distribute content for commercial gain.

What kind of content will be defined as spam?

1.Post, share, engage with content or create accounts, Groups, Pages, Events or other assets, either manually or automatically, at very high frequencies.

2.Attempt to or successfully sell, buy or exchange site privileges or product features, such as accounts, admin roles, permission to post, Pages, Groups, likes, etc., except in the case of clearly identified branded content, as defined by our Branded Content Policies. 

3.Require or claim that users are required to engage with content (e.g. liking, sharing) before they are able to view or interact with promised content.

What actions has Facebook taken when confronting spam?

It takes a three-part approach to content enforcement: remove, reduce and inform.


The Facebook Community Standards outline what is and isn't allowed on Facebook. They remove content that goes against their policies as soon as they become aware of it.


Some problematic content can create a negative experience for people on Facebook. So they'll often reduce the distribution of this content, even when it doesn’t quite meet the standard for removal under their policies.


When content is potentially sensitive or misleading, they sometimes add a warning or share additional information from independent fact-checkers.
