First, thank you to those that alerted me that I was breaking a Facebook rule by having my website address in my cover photo! I could have had my Facebook page deleted for this violation. Scary! So, as a part of my Getting Down To Business small business series I decided to provide a summary of Facebook rules for pages.
I’ve taken what I feel are key points* (the rules that are broken most often) from Facebook’s terms and conditions for PAGES and condensed them into more simple terms.
*Please note: as always I recommend that you read the Facebook terms and conditions in full and make your own determination!
Make sure to check out the rest of the small business series below!
You are crazy on-the-ball Ashley. That’s why we love your blog. Can you just do your own conference next year? I’ll come. I’ll even help you plan it. I’m SERIOUS!
Prayers are still coming your way. 😉
As always, hugs from Indiana!

It is so confusing! As a FB user, I don’t like all these new rules. I am not a fan of adding Apps to Facebook.
I’ll stick with blogs…
I did not know these rules! Thank you for sharing, I’m sure I would’ve broken one of these for my business page eventually if I hadn’t read them here! Great info. xoxo
Thanks for posting this! I won’t break these rules… anymore… 🙂
Thanks for reading the page and then summarizing some key points! I’m going to share this article with my fellow bloggers and going to read that page myself! Tks!
Eyeyeye…this gives me a headache. I don’t like to have to think this much:) Ok…so…then if my website is in my profile picture….is that a big no no as well?
ps…thank you Ashley for simplifying this for my simple brain:)
Thank you for breaking this down for us!
But one question: Does the website url being placed on it start for watermarks being urls?
I do graphic designing for families who lost babies, nd I use my url as my watermark.
I wouldn’t use anything as your cover photo that has a website URL in it. Save those photos for albums.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you for the breakdown.
But I do have a question. Is this applicable for the profile pic as well? I am not able to find any details regarding that.
I can’t seem to find any information about it, but I would not include it just to be safe.
