Can Social Media Ban Your Content? Apparently, Yes.

Caution: Content Police!

Here are some thoughts from the ever-informative Derek Haines at Just Publishing Advice covering an issue many of us may not have considered seriously: the possibility that social media might refuse to feature our advertising or even allow us to post our content because it violates their “Terms and Conditions.” While I haven’t worried about this very much so far, I do know that my book Blood Lies wouldn’t be accepted for an Amazon ad with the current cover.

What about you? Do you always read the Terms and Conditions? Have you experienced any resistance from social media or other advertising sites when posting information about your books?
