Ultimately, the best way to get avoid getting your Facebook ad rejected is to focus your advertisement on your business. What good are you providing? Highlight that.
In the examples above, all of the rejected texts referred to personal identifiers, like religion, age, ethnicity, or health status. You want to avoid referencing these and other indicators like this if you want to get your ads approved. If you focus your ads instead on how you can help people who have been injured in an accident, while avoiding using the word “you” or specifically referring to if a person that your ad is targeting has been injured in an accident or not, you’ll be much more successful, and be much less likely to have your Facebook ad rejected.
