How to post safely and avoid Facebook Jail (2017)

You must have heard about ‘Facebook Jail’, it means facebook suspending you from using facebook group or other services for some days, which could last between 1 hours to 21days. If ‘Facebook Police’ discover that you are posting same post content to multiple facebook pages and groups at an alarming speed, then you will be regarded as a SPAMMER and thrown into the Virtual Jail.

To prevent getting banned or suspended from posting to Facebook groups, we have created this article on what you should and shouldn’t do.

1. Verify your Account with a Mobile Number (New)

Since September 2017, Facebook has become very strict with accounts that do not have a verified mobile number attached. And if your account is one of those, you must’ve noticed that Facebook is marking some of your posts as spam.

To avoid this, kindly verify your Facebook account with a valid email and mobile number. And if you can’t, we strongly advise you reduce your daily posts to 30 with a good time interval between them.

2. Post Time Intervals

The major factor that triggers the facebook jail police is when you post to Facebook at an alarming rate. Either to your facebook wall, facebook page, facebook groups or even when you comment on posts. Your account comes under scrutiny when facebook discovers that you are not posting like a human but as a robot who have been programmed to post every 30 seconds.

Either you post manually or with a service such as Pilot Poster, as long as the time in between posts are very little, you are likely to be thrown into facebook jail.

Solution

Facebook post interval - facebook jail

Pilot Poster has made this a lot easier for you by providing flexible posting interval between 10 seconds to 25 minutes for instant posting and between 1 Minute to 90 hours for scheduled posts. However, we only recommend you to use the instant posting (Send Now) option when posting to very few groups between and 1-5. If you are posting to a large number of groups, you are advised to use post schedule and do NOT use a posting time interval below 7 Minutes. 

It is recommended to use posting time interval of 10 Minutes and above

This way the facebook jail police cannot flag your account because it is only normal for a human to be able to change facebook group and post o them within 5-8 minutes.

UPDATE: Using Pilot Poster Auto Pause Feature

facebook poster auto pause

Auto pause is the new Pilot Poster feature that stops your scheduled post for a set time and then resumes when the time elapses.

This feature will make your posting looks humanly enough and will definitely reduce the risk of getting flagged by Facebook.

To use this feature, you’ll see a new option below the post schedule screen. As shown in the image above.

The Auto pause after (Posts) is the number of posts pilot Poster will Publish before pausing the posting schedule and Auto resume after (Hours) is the number of Hours Pilot Poster will delay before it resumes posting again.

It is highly recommended to use this feature when posting to over Over 30 Groups. That way, you’ll be 99% sure of avoiding Facebook Jail.

3. Number of Groups to Post Daily Per Facebook Account

This is another important issue that gets many thrown into the facebook jail. Although Facebook has no specific number of groups you can push posts to daily, it is only ideal that it flags any account that overdoes it. When you post to 500 groups daily with a single Facebook account, it clearly shows that you are either SPAMMING or TROLLING. In the real world, it wouldn’t have been possible to manually post to over 500 groups in a single day without the facebook police taking note of you.

Solution

Our recommended number of groups to post daily is 1- 50 per Facebook account.

To avoid the issue of facebook sending your account into jail, Pilot Poster have created different measures to protect you, and one of them is the ability to use multiple facebooks accounts for a single Pilot Poster Account. This will enable you to switch in between the facebook account to get your post to a large number of audience and at the same time avoid facebook jail.

Although we have tested posting to over 120 groups per facebook account (in 2016) without getting flagged with the right posting time interval and unique URL in place, however, things are changing and Facebook is getting more strict. We recommend a maximum of 50 groups to Pilot Poster users because our goal is to never have a member in facebook jail for any reason relating to the use of our service.

4. Utilize Pilot Poster Posting Settings

Pilot Poster post settings - facebook jail

We have discussed this in our other article that teaches you how to prepare your account for your first, utilizing these settings the right way will help you prevent Facebook jail.

Our main aim is to create a ban free system so we continue updating Pilot Poster to see that this aim is achievable. That is why we have added two additional option to enable you to post unique articles to each of the Facebook groups you post to.

First among these options is to enable Unique Post. This option is enabled adds a unique id to the posted message, this means that Facebook spam rule number one of posting the same message multiple numbers of Facebook groups has been beaten, this is because every post will be seen as a new post.

The second option is Unique Link. This option adds an id as a parameter to the post link you are sending. This way your post URL will not be seen as a spam link and will not be blacklisted by facebook jail police. However, this option is not advisable if you are using a URL shortener, this is because adding a parameter to a URL shortening service such as goo.gl will prevent the URL pointing to the right destination.

Do not enable Unique Link with a shortened URL

 

5.  Always switch between Posting Apps

Pilot Poster has provided you with different applications for posting. It is highly recommended you switch between these applications to reduce the risk of being flagged as a spammer. This is one of the measures taken by us to ensure you post safely to multiple Facebook groups and avoid facebook jail.

App switching can be done every 3 days if you post regularly.

5. Change Photo and URL of a Re-Scheduled Post

If you are planning to run a marketing campaign on facebook groups, we recommend that after a few batches of a particular post, it is highly recommended you change the Image and if possible shorten (or re-shorten) the URL to give your post a new look. This will not only give your post more clicks but will also make it look fresh to the facebook spam detection system.

By now you should know that Facebook monitors all of your activities on its system, therefore it is now your responsibility to make your post as real as possible.

If you don’t know before now, facebook blacklists not just links, but also images. A blacklisted image will prevent your post from going through. If you use Pilot Poster and you get an error like the one in the picture below, then you should know that either the URL or image you use in your post message has been blacklisted. Changing post photo regularly will save you from such stress.

6. Switch Between Facebook Accounts

Switching between your facebook accounts on Pilot Poster for posting is a very good way to avoid facebook jail. When you post with different accounts, there is less burden on a particular account. And with this, you get your marketing campaign to reach more audience and the same time you save yourself from getting flagged by Facebook.

7. Take advantage of Auto Comment

It is safer to comment than to keep posting same content. With Pilot Poster’s Auto Comment feature, you can always bump your post to the top of the groups, instead of you to keep posting same content every time.

All you need is for a group admin to approve one of your posts once and you can keep bumping this particular post daily and it’ll be getting to the top of the group every time.

8. Don’t Post to Unknown Pages (Or Competitor’s page)

One of the easiest ways to get flagged on Facebook is posting to Facebook pages (not groups) that aren’t yours. Unlike Groups, pages are owned by businesses and they are strictly monitored by the Page admins. A competitor would never think twice to flag your post as spam as it disrupts its business and you could be stealing away its customer.

Also, no page admin will want to go through the stress of having to delete your post from their page, it is much easier to click the spam button before blacklisting you.

The two scenarios above are the shortcuts to getting flagged by Facebook (in 2017). you should also know that pages will never give your post enough exposure or engagements like a Facebook group.

You should only use Pilot Poster’s page posting features for scheduling to the pages you admin, and not to spam other business pages.

9. Stop Posting to Groups that won’t Approve your Posts

It is useless posting to a group that’ll never approve your posts. This has nothing to do with group privacy, groups (OPEN, CLOSE or SECRET) can set posts to pending by default and will require the group admin’s manual approval before going live.

If you have posted up to 3 times in a particular group and none has been approved after some days or weeks, it is best you list down groups like this and you either exit such group or hide it completely from Pilot Poster to avoid posting to it in your next campaign.

If one of the group admins where you have multiple pending posts marks your post as a spam, there is a VERY high chance of you or your content getting punished by Facebook.

10. Avoid Running Multiple Actions

We strongly advised against running multiple actions on Pilot Poster. Pilot Poster let you run multiple actions such as Post, Comment, Join Groups and Invite friends to join groups. If you’ll like to run all of these actions, we advise you pause one for another.

If you have a running post schedule and you’ll like to do a comment bumping, you should either pause or allow the post schedule to finish running.

Running multiple actions at the same time could trigger Facebook spam system.

11. Other Factors that could get you into Facebook Jail

Below are some of the other factors that could make Facebook ban your account from using facebook group and other related services;

i. Posting Nude Content:

Nudity is not allowed on Facebook and most other social media platforms. If you continue to post such content either on your profile wall, pages or groups, there is a possibility that Facebook will suspend you from using some of its services.

ii. Posting Provocative Content :

Posting content that promotes hatred, threat, racism and direct attacks on a group of people or individual could lead you to Facebook jail as this is against the common social media practice on any internet community. Spam or no spam, you’ll certainly be flagged if found to be promoting such content.

iii. Other Suspicious activities

Facebook police could throw you in the jail if it found you to be suspicious in your activities and/or you are being reported by other users on a regular basis.

We hope you have understood how you can stay safe on Facebook and at the same time enjoy the marketing power of Pilot poster.

    Hi I am having issues with scheduled posts. I always leave an 11 minute gap between them which Pilot Poster usually sticks to but sometimes it will then post 2 times in 1 minute, landing me in jail. Are you able to help please? Thanks

  2. Darn, I didn’t read all the safety stuff and now I’m already in FB jail on my very first attempt at using this. How long does the account stay blocked from posting to groups?

    Hey Folks,

    So I’ve been struggling to use Pilot Poster for months. I’ve tried everything, but I constantly get restricted as Facebook treat my posts as spam. I can’t work out what I’m doing wrong. I would love some help and support from the lovely team at Pilot Poster. My content is educational and non-commercial and I don’t break any of FB’s community standards. Please help.

  5. Appreciate what you guys do & will be supporting you… I have one question. Can I link my own groups to other groups im posting too as part of my content marketing strategy? If so.. how will this look like on the user end when i ad my link.. Will the media interface from my group appear on the post? would that mean i shouldn’t add an image to the original post i would be sending to other groups.

  6. Chico

    By just logging Pilotposter apps to Facebook, without doing any posting the Facebooks is blocking me!

    1. Hello Chico, May I know what app you tried logging in and can you send us some screenshots to [email protected]?

      And sometimes, you only need to bypass Facebook checkpoint by confirming that it was you who attempted login into your account to have account security-related issues fixed.

      Also, Pilot Poster does not have an app, we use Only public Apps certified and approved by Facebook.

      Thank you.

  7. I have four different posts with different images and different links to my website. Each post is posted only 4 times a day at 60min interval with a 3 hour wait in-between and after only 68 posts in 4 days my account has been blocked and I am in Facebook jail for a week. This is the second time this has happened. What more am I to do to prevent being blocked? This is VERY frustrating.

  8. alx

    it seems that lately i’m having problems with my posts being labeled as ‘possible spam’, then i have to go and click and say no, this isn’t spam, then they get back to me and say my post is okay and has been reposted. i’ve posted just image memes, non promotional articles, current news items, etc, NO NUDITY, NO RACIST OR INFLAMMATORY, HATE SPEECH or related. what ever i post gets ‘possible spam labeled’ but then gets passed by FB as okay and reinstated. EVERY TIME. i’ve never had a post NOT get reinstated. so basically, i have to manually go and check when i get ‘flagged’ to get my posts up and running again. completely defeating the automated process of PP. why is this happening?

    alx

    1. alx

      FOLLOW UP:
      i guess i should of said that basically, anything that i post after 5 posts, after 12 posts, etc. will get a message ‘possible spam’. i’ve always had my settings pause after 8-10 posts for around 16-20 minutes, then start again, with 8 minute intervals between posts. is it possibly because posts are repetitive/similar except for the string of random numbers at end of each post, is that what is triggering spam alert. will i need to use an article spinner? what should i do>

    My scheduled posts are set for 5 minutes apart. After 5 posts to pause for 6 minutes, then resume. I schedule 30-40 group posts at a time.
    I have seen it take anywhere from 7-10 minutes to post in 1 group, and the pause is anywhere from 9-14 minutes.
    Why is this happening?

    1. Hello,

      In version 4.5, we have put a safety measure that let you run only one activity at a time. This means when you Schedule Post, Schedule Group Joining and Auto Comment. If there is an eventual clash in time, only one activity will run while the others will be delayed. This will prevent your account from performing multiple impractical functions leading to Fb jail. And this is why you see the discrepancy in your schedule timing.

      Thank you.

    At first i would like to thanks you that making powerful tools likes this it help me to reach more audience. i found sum bug likes interval between post likes

  14. Roberto Lopez

    I’d like to know why there’s a random number at the end of every post I scheduled, and it’s not shown in the preview.

    1. This is because you’ve enabled Unique Posts, which helps reduce flag rate.

      You can disable this from Settings > Publishing Settings > Untick Unique Posts

    i know you can’t upload images now but it seems like image urls from my server are not posting. keep getting this error:

    As soon as I’m posting in the Facebook groups, Facebook deleting my posts under a second under and I am getting a notification that this is spam so we are deleting your post. “temporary banned for 3 days” .
    Note : using all safety tips that you are mentioned above.

    1. This is because Facebook felt you were posting too fast or posting same Content (Images/Link/Video) several times.

      You have been flagged for three days. You should reduce the number of posts daily when you’re finally unflagged.

  19. Hi Team,

    i’m Getting the this 59cdec646f358 message automatically in my every post, Already i have checked all option to change this system but i’m not able to do this,

    Please help me out of this Message error.

  20. Darrel

    I’m on about my 4th round of a scheduled post. I’ve just been blocked from posting in groups for 2 days.

    I’m posting to 77 groups. Posts are 7 minutes apart, with a 3 hour pause after 39 posts. Then repeat the series after three days.

    I’m using the unique post and url features. But I didn’t change the image. I tried enabling the follow up comment, but it hasn’t worked for me yet.

    Looking at the logs the last series ran ago. Today’s series, on the first post, the log shows “Error : (#200) The user has not authorized the application to perform this action.”

    Most of the posts after that show the same error, but some posts went through. Until eventually I was blocked.

    Did I do something wrong other than not changing the image?

    And on that subject, how do I change the image of a post that’s on a repeating schedule? It seems that I need to stop scheduled post, open a save post, change the image, then re-schedule that one.

  21. My Facebook account was restricted few minutes ago ,my post interval is 50 min ,my pause interval is 1 hour , my post number is 20 .I am in over 200 groups .But yet i still got restricted ,please tell me, what did i do wrong ,i was posting a youtube video link and a site link ,using the link post option .

  22. Boa tarde! Como faço para sair dessa condição?

    1. Hello, there is no law that prohibits the use of these images… except when you use them ilegally or infringes on their respective rights.

  25. alx

    firstly my settings:
    post per 8 minutes intervals
    after 10 posts set wait time for 15 minutes then continue
    50 posts total 24 hour period

    okay, i’ve encountered this error after 3 or 4 posts have successfully entered groups…

    “Error : It looks like you were misusing this feature by going too fast. You’ve been blocked from using it. Learn more about blocks in the Help Center.”

    the thing is, it will still run, but with same error for the next 3-4 posts but i do not receive a message at all, about being temporarily blocked. i’m letting it run even with errors because i’m waiting to see if temp block error message will finally show up.

    i guess my question is, even with my settings, why do i get this error, and why no temp block message date?

    thanx,

    2 questions:
    -would it help if i used i used a plugin that would randomly change the ‘feature post image’ in a post or page?
    -would it help if i created a few url shortener links for the same url i am using in FP campaign?

    thanx,
    alx

    1. alx

      sorry if a bit unclear, i am referring to the ‘feature image’ feature in wordpress blogs.

    2. Hello Alx,

      1. It is a good practice to auto rotate featured image. You can do this using SPINTAX function in Pilotposter.

      And if you planned to rotate the featured image on your blog post, this might not have an effect on your scheduled post as the first image will be used.

      2. It is also a good practice to rotate links using URL shortener. Remember that you must disable Unique URL when using shortened links.

      1. alx

        i am aware of the SPINTAX for text. i completely missed any mention of SPINTAX for images on this site. could you post where this info is? does this function ‘switch’ between images used, per post? that’s awesome.

    what’s the max regarding number of groups one can join daily without being temporarily blocked for registering to too many groups. sometimes i can do 20 sometimes 12, i don’t know, for me, always changing. i’ve been blocked twice already. lol

  28. Sassy02

    Hi Sir, i was using your website .. the problem is facebook always remove my post because they notice it was a spam, even i change the content of my message it also has my page link .. does the settings ” Unique Link ” is working or not? can u help me on this problem? thank you

    1. Hello, I’ll advise you change the URL, Image, and text of your post occasionally. And try to post to few groups daily until you’re removed from the blacklist.

  29. OMNI

    Hi, I started my first scheduled post today at 10am. I had successfully posted to 48 out of 53 groups when I get the notice (On Facebook) that I am not allowed to post until 3pm tomorrow due to weird behavior.

    I used the following options:
    53 groups (under the soft cap of 75 grouprs)
    Unique Post (added some combination of letters/numbers)
    Post Interval of 6 minutes
    Auto Pause for 1 hour after 30 posts (around lunch time)
    Facebook App for IPhone

    For groups 48-53, I received the ff errors:
    “Error : The action attempted has been deemed abusive or is otherwise disallowed”

    Please advice

    1. Hello,

      Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait and till 3pm tomorrow to be able to post again. Facebook updates its system regularly and 50 posts trigger Facebook Spam on some accounts while some post to over 100 groups daily without getting flagged. These all depend on Facebook.

      We’ll advise you post to below 50 groups daily for your account and also increase the interval to 7mins.

      Thank you.

      1. OMNI

        Okay thanks for the advice! Facebook’s developers is smart so I’m not surprised its easy to catch something that sends a POST so mechanically. On another note, I believe a more “human” way of positing would probably harder to detect. Like creating a function that will send the post request as a RANDOM X seconds between A mins and B mins. For example, post randomly between 5 to 7 mins, would mean that a post can be sent at 5 mins 20 secs, and the next one at 6 mins 5 secs, etc.

        I’ll try posting below 50 groups and increasing the interval time to 7mins and also the rest period.

        PS. Does the “Facebook Jail” time increase after every succeeding offence?

      2. Sarunas Misiunas

        Tell me please, how it is to possible to post below 50 groups daily, if i manualy can not to post to 10 groups per account? It is possible, that my IP is in Facebook black lists? I opeing new accountns ant after 2 seconds this is blocked. Maybe i shud use VPS?What about proxie?

        1. Ensure you verify your account with a mobile number to avoid getting blocked. And post very few with a new facebook account.

  30. Abid Hasan

    Hello, i was posting my products on my contry selling groups. Every post has 10 mins interval. All posts are same sentence: “Visit our Page. Like and Share and Shop with us” I attached my page post link. So its kinda share from my page to groups. After posting 9 groups, it says, “”””he action attempted has been deemed abuse or is otherwise disallowed””””…and now i see i cant post any group until 5th August. how to resolve this?? can i create different type of post on particular group??? how????

  31. Niel

    Hi, Do I need to be logged in or online while the auto posting is activated?

    1. Hello,

      You do not need to be online if you use the SCHEDULE function. But if you use the SEND NOW option, then you must keep the page open.

  32. Dear Madam/Sir,

    Started using Poster Pilot yesterday. Am very pleased.
    Nevertheless, I got blocked today by FB.

    I have created categories per language. So I schedule a post per language, e.g. I post an English message in 10 English groups and a Spanish message in 5 Spanish groups.
    I schedule the post for the English groups and the Spanish group independently, which works fine.

    However, preventing an overlap in posting time of the english and spanish message is a bit troublesome. I can manage to prevent this for the two languages, with some manual calculations. But I am not just posting in those two languages, but in various. Manual calculations become troublesome.

    It would be nice if Pilot Poster can calculate the posting time difference not just between one scheduled post but between various.

    I hope I have explained myself clearly.

    Best,

    Luca

    Thank you for the service….im wondering why is it free? how do you make money? 🙂

    1. Hello Jimms,

      Our means of generating revenue is through displayed ads and we intend introducing premium features soon.

      Thank you.

      1. Obinwanne

        Pleaseeeeee dear, I beg you in the name of God, I don’t wanna go PRO, secondly, being free attracts visitors to click on your Google ADs.
        Thsnks

        1. Hello Obinwanne,

          Pilot Poster will always be Free to use. We’ll only be adding some features for the premium members, and it is going to be optional.

          Thank you.

    2. Obinwanne

      Bro, why are you encouraging him to turn it Premium ?

  38. Dexter

    Hi. Is it possible to use two or more facebook accounts added in my pilot poster account to execute auto posting simultaneously?

  39. edward

    some times can post, but now I am not able to post using pilotposter. is there a solution?

  40. ryan

    I followed all of the instructions above and each time pilot poster posts, I have to confirm that it isnt spam. Is this normal or did I do it wrong? i cant afford for my page to be banned. Thanks.

    1. It happens sometimes, especially when you start using an auto-posting service like Pilotposter for the first time. This confirmation will disappear with time.

  41. I think there is something wrong with Facebook , I keep on getting group posts blocked two times in a row despite following Pilot Post rules.

    1. I’ll advise you switch the app for posting. We’ll be releasing a new and stable app in days to come.

      1. Oh really? That would be GOOD ! I got blocked twice with HTC Sense app not sure why. I was careful with posting also I suggest Pilot Poster to bring new features !

        1. It would be good if you allow users to set a month of scheduling in a one shot not by manually selecting each days with different timings. Of course we can have both 1 month + manually set features .i.e Dual Mode.

        2. Should be able to delete scheduling logs at one click, manual deleting one by one is little annoying.

  42. aarthi

    hi, thanks a lot for your service. here is some tips i would suggest for other users.
    1] Spread the load – spread the load of posting to different accounts, you can post to 1000 groups using 20 facebook accounts doing 50 posts per day spread over 15~24 hours your chances of banning get decreased drastically you only need one time effort of setting up facebook accounts and joining groups
    2] perform various activities from the accounts on regular basis – if you use a facebook account just to post links, sooner or later facebook will find that your account does nothing but post links which will likely result in a ban, so a like, a comment or a sticker, a small, but a different activity (other than group posting) will help you to mask your account activity from FB police radar.

    1. Hello Aarthi,

      Thank you for the suggestions. An update with Auto Comment on group posts will be released soon.

      We’ll add other suggestions to our Todo List.

    (#200) Insufficient permission to post to target on behalf of the viewer Visit the node

    1. #200 Insufficient permission is caused by one of the following;

      1. The group does not permit Members posting

      2. You did not set the right permission when authenticating your app. Goto https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications, search for the app you are posting with (e.g iPhoto), ensure the permission is set to PUBLIC.

      3. Invalid token. Simply Authenticate other apps to fix.

      Thank you.

      iPhoto and other apps can be found at Settings > Facebook Apps

      You can check HERE to read how to authenticate your apps.

    I have about 60 groups on my account, however so far only 17 has been extracted by pilot poster. Is there anything I can do to get all my groups on my Pilot Poster account?

      Goto Settings > Posting Settings > Ensure ‘Show Open Groups Only’ is not ticked.

    I did not read the procedures on posting to groups before commencing and as a result i posted wrongly and was blocked …….. how do i get unblocked since its my first time

    1. Pilot Poster

      Facebook will automatically unblock you at a set date. You can view this date by trying to post to a Facebook group.
