Someone is reporting WOL entries to FB

Someone is reporting WOL entries to FB

I have read a few times of people having their entry hidden by FB because it was reported. It seems to have started only a week or so ago, presumably to increase their own chances of winning. There is no recourse for the person banned.
I have had just had another entry banned.

Time for promoters to keep the entries to their own direct link.

What are the WOL entries being reported for? I don’t understand why Facebook would hide competition entries???

If you post something anyone can report it as spam or offensive content. The facebook bot immediately takes it down and it goes to facebook to review and if they don't find anything that contrivines their rules they reinstate it. The problem is that this takes some time and when all these comps especially the Christmas ones are only run for a day or a week by the time facebook gets around to the reviewing and reinstating process the competition has long since finished. If you have to comment to enter well your entry has vanished for that period of time so instead of the company choosing from hundreds of entries they only have a handful

Wow! That is so awful and sneaky of people to do this to win comps, I think anyone whose entry is reported and hidden should contact the company running the comp by direct message and inform them this is happening and maybe send their entry in that way explaining why.

Golly gosh, how can people be bothered. All I know is I'm still blocked on Instagram from the weekend.

I have had mine reported too, I went over my entry and there is nothing wrong with it. Not nice, whoever is doing it.

No use telling FB. I did message the promoter on their page. If everyone do that maybe they will provide a secure link ands we can just write 'done' in the comments. They need to be flooded with this idea from us.

they should pick up on the people reporting too often, or is that too logical for facebook

I've had 6 reported on FB - someone is really pushing to win competitions.

OMG that is terrible! :o

How do you know it is invisible/hidden? Do you get notified by FB?
posted 8-12-2021 @ 04:59 PM www


Facebook are notifies you. It is hard to argue with a computer. Hopeless to fix. Promoters need to change their method of entry.

Christmas really bring out the worst in some people.

Have had the FB spam notifications but in the last day or two it has stopped for me.

Instagram is another story. Been banned three times and still cant get back on. I've been very cautious with my tagging and its still happening. So frustrating as most comps are there and I cant enter

I normally love the Advent comps but this year has been so frustrating and stressful. :(

It has just happened again! The My Soundcore page on FB. By the time they say it is OK the comp will be over.

Happens on Instagram too. I had a creative entry reported for being "sexually explicit" so my image was removed and as the daily entry period was over, I couldn't do anything.

Oh. The photo was of my two toddlers drinking their babycinos...

I had a simple non comp related reply to a friends post reported and removed but so far no jail time.

I had a facebook "tag in comments" removed as spam/inappropriate content. I only tag fellow compers who specifically are on my page to tag me and for me to tag. (I only use facebook for comping and if family/friends specifically want to be on my page I exclude them in my sharing), I also only tag once per post so definitely not spamming. I am thinking someone or more than one has made a heap of disposable fake accounts and is just going through removing most entries. It is so rife at the moment though you also have to wonder if it is a glitch. Luckily we have each other as a sounding board here at lottos because if we didn't have each other telling our members of this issue no one would know and just pass it off as only happening to them

Anything reported doesn't immediately get taken down. it goes to their bot first. It has to be offensive, spam, etc to be taken down. Also is FB banning you and should then tell you why.

My mum told me this has been happening to her a lot too.

I've never liked Facebook for competitions, but it opens the door to promoters who don't have the money / skill to run something via their own website.

same here I get several every day

I'm not sure that it's all reporting. My 2 reports weren't comp related. I was commenting on a charity page.
You might find that FB has changed its algorithm for checking posts, and is highlighting a lot more than it used to.
