Facebook Will Not Allow Google+ Ads, So Don’t Even Try It!

Author:

You might have seen this story over the weekend where Michael Lee Johnson ran an add on Facebook asking people to add him to their Google+ account. What happened? Facebook removed the ad after only an hour and also suspended his entire advertising account with them.

Ouch Facebook. Ouch.

Here’s the email Johnson received from Facebook after his account was suspended, which he posted on his Google+ profile:

Your account has been disabled. All of your adverts have been stopped and should not be run again on the site under any circumstances. Generally, we disable an account if too many of its adverts violate our Terms of Use or Advertising guidelines. Unfortunately we cannot provide you with the specific violations that have been deemed abusive. Please review our Terms of Use and Advertising guidelines if you have any further questions.

The moral of the story: Don’t try to advertise a Facebook competitor on Facebook.

What was Johnson’s message to Facebook on his Google+ posting?

P.S; Facebook – You Suck.

He’s deleted his personal Facebook account, but not the one he uses for work.

Do you think Facebook is justified in deleting the ad and suspending his entire account?
