I am recruiting for my study and wanted to use facebook ads. My ad was flagged as being political. I submitted my ID to prove I’m not a Russian bot - it was rejected. I submitted my passport - rejected, my passport card - rejected. I just submitted an appeal which should take 48 hours.

I changed the language in my ad to see if that could take it out of the political ad category - and am awaiting that response.

I appreciate that FB is trying to improve things - but I just want to place an ad for research-related purposes and don’t know how to navigate all of this.

If anyone has recent experience, I would be grateful for any help. I know someone who recruited a similar population just before they started cracking down - so he can’t help me much, unfortunately.
