Our Advertising Policies provide guidance on what type of ad content is allowed. Familiarizing yourself with these policies can help you achieve greater efficiency by avoiding disapprovals down the road. Common disapprovals include the use of personal attributes, adult content, sensational content and brand usage in ads.
Social issues like civil and human rights, the environment and immigration play an important role in society. Social Issue ads can help raise awareness about important topics and drive change through advocacy, debate or discussion.
We've worked with many advocacy groups to define a set of social issues for our platform.
THE FOLLOWING ARE EXAMPLES OF TYPES OF SOCIAL ISSUE ADS:
Social issues can cover a range of polarizing, politicized and sensitive topics. While we believe in freedom of expression, we also recognize the need to set guidelines for advertising that may influence people, actions and outcomes.
TO RUN ADS ABOUT SOCIAL ISSUES, ELECTIONS OR POLITICS, ADVERTISERS ARE REQUIRED TO:
All ads marked as ‘about social issues, elections or politics’ are entered into the Ad Library for seven years.
Note: Ads about social issues, elections or politics are not eligible to run on the Audience Network. Visit the Help Center to see the full list of placements that don't support ads with a “Paid for by” disclaimer.
You can create and manage all of your advertising across Facebook and Instagram with our Ads Manager and Business Suite tools.
Ads Manager enables you to create, view and change ads, as well as see results for all of your ad campaigns in one place.
WITH ADS MANAGER, YOU CAN:
Creating an ad is a good option if you want to drive people to your nonprofit’s website, or if you have a specific goal you’re trying to reach, like getting people to register for an event.
THERE ARE MANY THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH BUSINESS SUITE, INCLUDING:
You can create an ad in Ads Manager, or by boosting a post. Boosted (or promoted) posts are ads you create from posts on your Facebook Page. Boosted posts show up as ads in your audience’s News Feed. They’re a good way to reach more people who are on Facebook but don’t currently follow your Page. Boosted posts can help you raise awareness about your cause, and motivate people to visit your Page and follow you, which in turn will help grow your community.
When you boost a post, you can choose the audience you want to see it, where you want to place it, the duration of your post, and how much you want to spend on it. If you want more options to customize an ad, it’s a good idea to create your ad through Ads Manager.
When you create a Page, you automatically become the Page's admin, which means you can change how it looks and publish content as the Page. You can add people to help manage your Page by assigning Page roles.
THERE ARE FIVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ROLES FOR PEOPLE WHO MANAGE A PAGE:
There's no limit to the number of people who can have a role on a Page, however only an admin can assign and change roles by granting Page Permissions.
If you are using the new Pages experience, you can give Facebook access to New Pages or specific task access to people you trust. People can have Facebook access with full or partial control.
Please be aware that our Community Standards require that only authentic Facebook accounts are used to manage Pages.
Learn more about the different Page roles and how to add, remove and edit them for classic Pages and the new Pages experience.
You have several options to pay for ads on Facebook and Instagram, which may vary depending on the country and currency of your ad account.
