Solution To Limited Originality of Content on a Facebook Page

1. Delete all the content images and videos on your page that you download or upload from another Page or another downloading sources without proper, meaningful editing and modification of such content. Immediately you upload a video on your page.

2. You need to appeal in your Creator Studio. You will see the review button, you follow all the necessary instructions after that click on Partner then click submit button to submit your appeal to Facebook review team.. they will review your page if they see that your page is complying with their monetization policies and by doing all what they expected from you . NOTE Your first appeal may rejected or denied don’t be sad that was how Facebook always does. Try again 7-14 days later. In some cases it takes 5-6 appeals in a week, a month or some months for Facebook to remove that violation.
3. Make meaningful enhancements to your videos especially videos that you do not own. Here Facebook allow you to use another person’s videos or content you download from other sources but you must edit and add your own modification to it. Don’t just uploaded such video directly straight to your Page. Facebook don’t like that. Facebook wants you to increase it’s value through creative editing, use your own customize thumbnail, graphics and add your own intro at the beginning of the video. All the enhancements must be meaningful.
4 The best thing you can do to your page in order to maintain your monetization eligibility is to always upload video that you produce yourself.
Having just a Facebook Page does not guarantee your ability to earn from it or not, the best thing is to do all the possible best by developing, growing up such page and by maintaining it’s eligibility to have access to all monetization tools to earn money from Facebook. Sometimes some publishers may get this violation on their Pages without doing or going against all those things mention above. They feel like i didn’t uploaded someone else or another page video on my page so why did i flagged with limited originality of content. Yes!! it normally happens like that but i will say this is on the part of Facebook itself. This has happen to me before and i later got it removed after sending an appeal for multiple times. It automatically disappear after 5 months of having it on my Page. Facebook use bots to filter and scrawl all our content that will upload and they already programmed the Bots to filter out any copyright videos so from my own experience i think it always the background music or commentary if the video is a sport video that cause the problem since Bots can’t detect people showing on the video. That is the reason why Facebook want you to add your own editing, do some modification to the video before uploading it. Do not directly upload someone intellectual property to your page without doing some meaningful changes to it.
Have you been flagged with this violation before? Have you submitted an appeal to Facebook review team or you have not? If you have not been flagged it means you’re doing a great job to your Page therefore you should maintain your monetization eligibility. So publishers what are your thoughts on this?
