Here is what happened

I posted an ad on Facebook that seems legal and follows every guideline of Facebook ad policy. But guess what, it still got disapproved.

I didn’t paid much heed to it, but when I found out that my competitors’ ran similar ads without any disapproval, I was infuriated. It was when I realized I was that hated child *sobbing*

I made a sincere appeal; why always me?

But, it was not that bad when I realized that I do matter to Facebook and it knows my frustration to get bullied for no reason, but the complaint was still the same: why me and not them?

I showed all the evidence to prove my point that I am the victim here.

My conversation with Facebook Advisor Support started and it appeared more like a courtroom drama – where my Ad being a victim and me being its attorney, defending its claims by showing proof and evidence to the judge (Facebook) on how my client is innocent.

I showed every possible proof as I was asked to show.

Then finally, justice was served and Facebook admitted to incorrectly disapproving my ad and apologized for the inconvenience.

While, Facebook was manually reviewing my ad, it sent me a link where I just needed to enter ad ID.

Within 5 minutes after I enter my ad ID in the link, the ad was approved, while I was still having the conversation with Facebook Advisor Support.
