What Is Facebook Ad Rejection

As an advertiser, when you create a campaign or ad with the objective to reach your target audience without knowing the advertising policies of Facebook then you may face ad rejections.

Facebook has some set of policies for advertisers to keep its audience experience good otherwise people will start leaving Facebook.

4 Reasons Of Facebook Ad Rejection

Facebook has different advertising policies that you should be aware of. But, let me explain 3 key elements that you should know for creating your healthy ad. 

  • Wrong product or service
  • Wrong element in the image
  • Wrong or claiming words in the ad copy and creative 
  • Misleading

Wrong product or service: Some products or services are not allowed to advertise on Facebook such as weapons, Alcohol, Dating, Online Gambling or gaming, etc. If you try to promote such a thing, your ads will be rejected right away.

Wrong Elements in the image: Some people use nudity or inappropriate elements in the creative which breach Facebook advertising guidelines. You shouldn’t use semi-adult couple images to promote adult products or you can’t use weapons in the image. All these practices will be the cause of the ad rejection.

Wrong or claiming words in the ad copy and creative: Facebook is strictly against claiming words. You can’t claim in your ad that your product or service will cure X disease or your course will make people millionaires. All these false claims are the reasons for an ad rejection. 

Misleading Ads: Misleading ads refer to the content you are showing in the ad that is different from the content presented on your landing page. If you mislead people this way then you would start receiving reports on your ad and Facebook would reject your approved ad.


Your ads should convey a real message without fooling people otherwise Facebook will reject your ads right away.

Also, create a product or service that helps people to solve their problems but never try to claim unrealistic things via advertisement.
