Title: Facebook and Instagram have banned advertising Bitcoin and ICO
Post by: shaman11 on January 31, 2018, 10:09:12 AM
The company Facebook has updated the rules for placing materials, now it is forbidden to advertise crypto-currencies and ICO on the expanses of the service. This prohibition applies to Instagram as well.

The official message of the company says that now no advertiser, including even legal companies, will be able to advertise Bitcoins and other crypto-currencies, as well as offers to purchase tokens within ICO or binary options.

All of the above Facebook calls financial products and services that mislead users. Facebook specialists gave examples of such advertising:

"Start trading binary options right now and get a 10-year trade guarantee without risk."
"Click here to learn more about the risk-free crypto currency, which allows you to make instant transfers around the world."
"The new ICO! Buy tokens at a 15% discount right now! "
"Use your retirement savings to invest in Bitcoin."
In the message of the director of product management in Facebook, Rob Leuven said about the reason for imposing a ban on such advertising: "We want users to be able to learn about new products and services from advertising on Facebook, without fear of fraud or deception. Nevertheless, there are many unscrupulous companies advertising binary options, ICO and crypto-currencies. "

You will blocked if posts will be posted in this way:
"Start trading binary options right now and get a 10-year trade guarantee without risk."
"Click here to learn more about the risk-free crypto currency, which allows you to make instant transfers around the world."
"The new ICO! Buy tokens at a 15% discount right now! "

Facebook is getting more scarier each month. They are getting really political in their actions. Giving a platform to, and sponsering religions, no I don't like that being an atheist.
Okay more ontopic>>Ofcourse, you can monitor some ICO advertising, but don't forget that people should take their responsibilities and read the ICO's carefully!
This kind of news generally hurts the Crypto world, which is sad because Crypto gives us so many oppertunities. Anyway the Facebook Crypto-groups are still growing, so the momentum is still there.

I still haven't checked or think of what are the major disadvantages of this move but I can only see that it could affect Facebook campaigns. But I don't think that it will affect the coins prices. Nothing really detrimental could occur I think.

This does not mean that you as a person cannot write posts about ICOs or Bitcoins. The only meaning here is that the annoying crypto ads popping up here and there in the advertisement arias will be replaced with other type of bull# like a "Meet singles in your area" or "Tired of waxing?" etc.
This will not have big impact in the cryptoworld, at least from my perspective.

It doesn't sound like a general ban of advertising cryptocurrencies and ICO. The sentences mentioned by Facebook are typical ads to lead users to fraud services and losing money. It is a good step to prevent facebook users to trap into cheating services. Anyway, many thanks for sharing.

They should also ban any bank ads too. Remember 2008 they biggest theft in history, trillions of dollar gone dozens of millions of people kicked to poverty... It was made by banks not crypto currencies...

This is also what's on my mind but there's no way if its only his decision to ban all advertisement of cryptocurrencies. He will make tons of money for letting those crap ICO's advertise to his network but he's smart enough that he had to remove those advertisement that are only getting that much attention in his social media networks. Anyone know on when it will be implemented? I opened my facebook acccount and there are still some ICO paid ads that are popping to my news feed.

For me, facebook just avoid phrases with so promising words so people will be deceived that in reality though possible is so least to happen. That make it some kind of misleading and fraud. However, such banning is not good to me.

See daily we are seeing many fake project launching, so this may cause reduce fake companies. Many ICO listing website is checking the company background details for listing there. So, i think it is always a good sign for the crypto industry.

The sentences mentioned by Facebook are typical ads to lead users to fraud services and losing money.

I would say catchy keywords those persuades potential investors to buy tokens/coins from the site or use their service.

One can determine what they are upto right from their post.

This is unreasonable, Facebook has violated the privacy of each individual, Each person has the right to post their favorite. I think Facebook does that to get a lot of attention because maybe this year Facebook will release a separate ICO named Facebook

I disagree. Even if each person has right to post that doesn't means you take on advantage of that. They also have rules to which you have comply with and post accordingly.

I also don't think that they are doing this just because there are rumours that they might be a starting their own ICO as well.



Best answer:

No,Facebook and Instagram do not banned advertising Bitcoin and ICO. But occasionally for some objectionable advertisements of ICO companies,Post deleted by facebook. If the advertisement is given correctly, then this will not be a problem.

There might be many unscrupulous ICO's creating enormous confusion on Face Book for those that originally knows not what Bitcoin is all about. The fact remains that Face Book is still one of the most useful/famous social media in the world aiding Bitcoin in all ramification. Let us see the dead body before we talk about the corpse burial. I still take all these to be untrue/fallacy until it becomes legit. Do you believe that Standardized Bitcoin Team managers can never even sit down, fold arms and allow this to materialize? Come to think of it, before or after the advent of Bitcoin, had many unscrupulous facet aspect of life not dominated or has not been dominating Face Books? Why now Bitcoin? It's still a Taboo or Fork sheet to me.

Just got hit with the message:

Your ad wasn't approved because it doesn't follow our Advertising Policies.
We do not allow ads that promote financial products and services that are frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices, such as binary options, initial coin offerings, or cryptocurrency.
This policy is part of an ongoing effort to improve the integrity and security of our ads, and to make it harder for scammers to profit from a presence on Facebook.
How to fix: Unfortunately, we don't support your business model. If you wish to continue advertising on Facebook, we suggest promoting a different service or product.

That sucks.

Facebook and Telagram already ban bitcoin and ICO advertisement, this also means any signature or bounty campaign will no longer have facebook campaign except for twitter. I think this new rules of facebook will have a bad effect for many ICO because 30-35% of their advertisement goes with  facebook campaign. If this new rules of facebook is already implemented it would be difficult now to promote on facebook.

I personally think that this move from the facebook and instagram are correct because there no one to check this legit project or not. Moreover they do not have the knowledge about it.
If they invested on the cryptocurrency they comes to know which is perfect project and not a scam attempt. They should have the employee team to work on that to define the right, so it will not work at all. Hence they banned the complete crypto currency projects there.

It does not seem to be resolving sooner now. It has already banned it means you cannot now advertise the ICO project on Facebook. Things are getting little worry some now as prices are dropping too much and do not know where it will end and start to recover but hoping it will be soon we can see market rise back above 10k in coming time.

They make a move to get rid of scamming/fraud ICO that's been advertised on the social media platform. Advertising ICO on Social media is a huge help for an ICO sale boost but it doesn't mean its the only the way to get more funds they can still advertise on some forums.

There is no thin without good. In this case, the importance of this forum will increase, since it advertises the crypto currency, and first of all the released tokens during the ICO. Participants in the campaign of generosity will be able to receive a decent profit. So it's not all that bad.

Facebook used to be the darling of social media from being in the forefront of what the rest of its competitors are doing.

In recent years, its popularity is waning. The younger generation no longer use facebook.

So there's little impact of Facebook banning ICOs ads. The "older" gen are unlikely to understand these stuffs anyway.

as you probably remember, "cuckberg" is interested in releasing his own currency, so he's cutting any cometition out.

It turns out that they do not block all pages in a row, where there is any mention of crypt, blockade and the like. They delete messages in which there is a direct offer to go through the link and buy tokens with a bonus. This is tolerable.

Facebook is far from being a pioneer in its noble desire to protect unintelligent users from "incorrect" advertising, because it's almost a year since Russian Yandex has been stubbornly fighting the penetration of advertising crypto-currency transactions into the contextual network of Direct. Only Yandex, went further, banning, according to the author's observations, advertising farms, ASIC-miners (specialized devices for the production of crypto-currency) and data centers necessary for their placement.

The company Facebook has updated the rules for placing materials, now it is forbidden to advertise crypto-currencies and ICO on the expanses of the service. This prohibition applies to Instagram as well.

The official message of the company says that now no advertiser, including even legal companies, will be able to advertise Bitcoins and other crypto-currencies, as well as offers to purchase tokens within ICO or binary options.

All of the above Facebook calls financial products and services that mislead users. Facebook specialists gave examples of such advertising:

I heard this news, but so far no problems have arisen. Maybe because my account is already 8 years old. Or maybe because I try not to do all the bounty at once.

On the other hand, and before this news I saw complaints, from members of the forum, on facebook.

I still haven't checked or think of what are the major disadvantages of this move but I can only see that it could affect Facebook campaigns. But I don't think that it will affect the coins prices. Nothing really detrimental could occur I think.
I think that as a result of such prohibitions the value of this forum will only increase. More and more potential investors will look for ICO not in social networks, but in this forum. And this, in turn, will raise the role of the signatory campaign participants. Maybe they will not require them to pass unnecessary verification of KYC, to such companies, no one will simply join.

Still I can able to see the ICO adds on my facebook wall. I think this topic is does not needed to discuss from the January last weeks onwards this topic has been created by many people through out the forum.

I also have some problems with Facebook; I participate in the facebook bonus campaign, about 3 - 5 times when I share and post about the ICO; They sent me a message saying that it was spam. Oh, no I did respond to not spam. A few days later they apologized and agreed it was not spam.
Facebook is becoming increasingly difficult.

It does not seem to be resolving sooner now. It has already banned it means you cannot now advertise the ICO project on Facebook. Things are getting little worry some now as prices are dropping too much and do not know where it will end and start to recover but hoping it will be soon we can see market rise back above 10k in coming time.

The ban on advertising of ISO projects and binary options in such social networks as Facebook and Instagram will not yield a positive result. Scammers will also deceive users, and honest projects will suffer from this ban.

Post by: imsotiredofmoviereboots on March 11, 2018, 03:22:47 AM
It's fine for me. Scammer ICOs have more numbers than the real ones so even if it will affect the real ones, the benefit is we can prevent much more loss that is often in millions of dollars.

I think it's just bad rumors that try to make traders panic and try to knock down the price of bitcoin, it should not be able to influence the price of bticoin and can keep prices expensive. but already a lot of traders are panicking so the price collapses.

I can understand why they ban the ads related to crypto, ICOs, etc. There are too many scammers, and the audience of social medias includes too many people who trust anything they see in the internet. I don't think that ICOs will suffer much from this ban

I think that is just a conspiracy so that many traders panic and eventually make the price at this exchange place collapse because many are panicking and selling their assets at cheap prices.

The ban applies to official advertising. "Ads that violate Facebook's new rules will be removed not only from the main app, but everywhere."

if in my opinion it's all just news that wants to drop and make Bitcoin enthusiasts declining, I think it's all just snapping for coin owners and keep on frantically wanting to sell their assets at a cheap price, but if I'm better just relax just bro while there is no direct ban, surely I still continue to hunt down the new ico through social media

I think this news is another trap from big players to get newbies to sell their coins cheaply. I recommend you to be calm and be patient and soon you will make a profit)

Yesterday twitter banned a lot of accounts,but i don't know the reason. I don't make advertisement of ICOs for a long time, but account is suspended.
Probably this is measure to prevent fake followers.

No matter how much the developers of these social networks want, cryptocurrency advertising will not go away as it is a virus that cannot be removed and simply removed, especially since the field of cryptocurrency is gaining more and more followings every day

same here . my account on twitter was also suspended but if it is really suspended then why they dont provide a specific time in order for my account to get retrieve ?  i dont also promote crypto tweets and retweets but i did put hashtag in my bio/profile that is related to crypto currency ( e.g #btc , #crypto , #blockchain )  .  

the only question that pop to my mind is that why there are still crypto accounts on twitter and why they are not banned like us ?   can someone shed some light about this ?

This news has been circulating for a long time but until now I have seen Google, Facebook, and Instagram still displaying ads related to ICO.
