Facebook posts failing due to Community Standards

If your Facebook post has failed to publish, and you see an error message saying that it has violated Facebook's Community Standards, we recommend heading over to your Facebook account and trying to share the exact same post through Facebook directly. In most cases, the post will not be successful and you will see a similar error from Facebook.

Your content couldn't be shared, because this link goes against our Community Standards

If you think this doesn't go against our Community Standards, let us know.

You can click the "let us know" link within the Facebook error message and work through the steps to let Facebook know you think it's an error. If you don't see the same error message, you can still reach out to Facebook for support here. Unfortunately, we're not able to assist with this process as we don't have any control over which links Facebook allows, nor do we have any additional insight into why certain links are disallowed.

This can sometimes happen if the link you're sharing has previously been shared on Facebook (by you or anyone else), and someone who has seen the link has reported it as a violation. This can be frustrating, but if Facebook doesn't allow the link to be shared for any reason, there is unfortunately nothing we can do to have that decision changed.
