    Did you have affiliate links and other direct gambling promotions on your page? If so then the chances are very slim that you'll ever get your page back.

    If I was you, I would write them daily until I have my response.

    Not directly on the page, no. Sent many links to my site and forum but didn't use direct affiliate links on the page.

    "Pages may not promote real-money gambling on the platform, unless prior approval has been provided by Facebook."

    With good reasons. Facebook is (hopefully) not interested to switch finally into a spam farm or free ad space without any value, not for Facebook and not for the readers. It's a social media, and the operative word should be "social".

    Facebook is far past the days of stopping the spam, they lost a handle on that a LONG time ago.

    I see only two reasons for this:

    1. Facebook wants to be 'seen' to be ethical, it doesn't want a boatload of gambling pages on there, full stop.
    2. If they do allow gambling pages, they want a slice of the pie, Facebook, like Google, has gone into a highly commercial point in its cycle where it is cashing in on its popularity while it lasts. They know the sums involved in online gambling, they want a piece of the action.

    Personally, I'd only put minimal resources into a Facebook page for my gambling sites, I don't like the idea of all my efforts just being taken down one day and then having a gun held to my head about how much I pay to get the page back up - which I know has happened with other groups such as Footy Accumulators.

    Hi,

    First of all, I would like to thank all you for this very usefull thread.

    I am in the same situation than givememylieg, i keep filling appeal forms without any answer. I tried to modify some restrictions form country like you guys suggested and my page was 18+ before it was unpublished.

    I read some of you written some emails or tried other way to contact facebook (other than the appeal thing), where can I find them in order to contact directy facebook ?

    Thanks,

    Sorry for my bad english...

    Hello,

    I am not sure about other contact addresses for Facebook. I did all my pleading via the appeal section.

    I have replied to others with this...

    I have had many people ask me about Facebook and Gambling pages and it looks like a tricky one. It seems like a hit or miss subject for everyone. Some pages are fine and some get unpublished. This is what happened to me...

    I replied to them saying that my page had been online for 2 years and they should have notified me about the change in terms before unpublishing my page. I then made a few changes to the page by removing casino logos and adding an 18+ image on the page. I then asked for permission to have my page and two days later is was re-published and everything is fine again.

    I'm not sure what else to tell you except keep on at them. Make sure you don't have any links heading to any affiliate sites from your Facebook page. Direct all links from Facebook page to your website. State that there is an age restriction for gambling on your Facebook page and you should be ok to have your page republished.

    I do hope you manage to beat the bastards.

    All the best, good luck and kind regards

    Erogenous

    1 year since my page was unpublished, also talked to some other guys since then. Here`s some stuff I learned:

    - unless you are lucky, page will remain unpublished
    - even if you get lucky, it will probably be unpublished again at some point
    - facebook's requirement is to delete all links sending to a gambling related website and never use such links again
    - e-mail response will always be standard
    - if you want to have a chance of getting a call with them (I did), you should file your complaint / appeal in the "advertising" section (don`t remember where that is)

    I didn`t use facebook since they unpublished my page, but recently I started a group. I`m not too invested in it but i`m curious if that will be blocked as well.

    I thought the problem was with posting aff links.
    Did not know even gambling portal links are not allowed. The difference is that (good) portals (theoretically) the offer info about games, not games. So linking to a portal you promote knowledge and info, not necessarily gambling with money.

    This is getting worse by the day.
    Like someone else said, I don't know if they are ethical or want a share of the pie.
    I hate to see gambling looked upon as an illegal activity.
