If your website is blocked by Facebook, you will get “Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive” upon sharing the URL:

First, you can use the Facebook Sharing Debugger tool to identify the issue. It is very easy to use, and you only need to enter your domain here:

Depending on the result, there are two options in which you can fix this:

Option 1 - Website doesn’t meet community standards

As one of the biggest social media platforms, Facebook has developed its own community standards. The most common reason why a website URL is blocked is that it doesn’t follow these standards, so make sure to check them thoroughly.

If you are sure that your website doesn't violate any of them, or you have removed content that Facebook would find inappropriate, it is very easy to remove this block.

What you need to do is click on let us know and ask for a review:

This will lead you to a form where you can submit a short message explaining why your site should be unblocked:

Once you have submitted this form, in most cases it will take up to a few days until Facebook reviews your report.

Option 2 - Warnings that should be fixed

If you see Warnings That Should Be Fixed tab, it means that there is an issue with a specific URL, content, or any website development issues in general. For example:

If you are not experienced in website development, in order to fix an issue like this, we highly recommend searching for help from developers or at specialized forums. For example, check out this awesome developer’s oriented forum – StackOverflow. It is a great place to get development support.

Once you have fixed the mentioned issue, you can ask Facebook to scrape the URL again:

Now you can share your website with your friends, or even promote your business all across the globe 😊
