Why are my posts getting declined on your Facebook page?

As stated in our Facebook group rules and regulations, in order to promote yourself, a business or event, you must be an official paying member of Boston Business Women. If you are an active member and your posts are being declined in the FB group, it may be because your violated our rules or that your Facebook name doesn’t match the name on your membership account. Please see the answer below for more info on this.

I am an official paying member of BBW and my posts are still getting declined. Why is this?

Do your Facebook and membership name match up? It’s very important that they be the same. Our team will not know to accept your post if your first and middle name (or nickname and maiden name) is shown on the Facebook post, but your membership name is your first and last name. One of the names would not be listed in our system as an active, paying member. This goes for Business pages posting as well. Please make sure if you’re posting off a Business page, that the same way it shows on Facebook, it shows on your account.
You can update your name by logging into your account through our website. Or you can let us know and we can update for you on our end!

How long will it take for my post to be approved?

Due to the high volume of post approvals, we ask that you give us 24-48 hours for approval and 72 hours over the weekends and holidays. Please make sure that if you have a timely event or promotion that you get it up at least a week in advance. Posts also get sent into a queue to be posted so it may take some time to appear.


How often can I post in the group?

Out of consideration for group members, we ask that promotional content is limited to 3-4 posts a week.
