While making your contents, avoid posting graphic contents or using foul words.

Graphic content refers to any type of visual material that is considered disturbing, offensive, or inappropriate, it can include photographs, videos, illustrations, and other types of digital or print media that depict explicit or graphic images.

Also, avoid using foul, offensive or sensitive words. Words like “kill, killing, shoot, rape, sex, drugs etc” should be used with caution. Facebook algorithms are automatically programmed to detect and blacklist these words. This can lead to Facebook flagging your post etc.

In some cases, it is best to code use them. For example, sex is often written as “sx” and porn, written as “p0rn” to confuse the algorithm. However, note that this is not a sustainable technique as Facebook will someday update its algorithm to be able to detect these techniques.

Avoid Hate Speech: Do Not Use Hate Words or Phrases or Contents

Avoid using hate words or phrases on your Facebook posts or comments. Outside the algorithm flagging your post, it could be reported by your followers.

Hate speech refers to abusive or threatening speech or writing that expresses prejudice on the basis of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or similar grounds. These also include racist and sexist remarks.

If found guilty of using or posting hate contents, Meta could give you a strike and delete your post.

Posting hate contents could stop you from getting monetized on Meta platforms.

Do not Post Fake News
