Will Facebook's Branded Content Policy kill Affiliate Marketing on Facebook?

Just wondering if Facebook's Branded Content Policy will apply to affiliate marketers who are pushing other people's products via their Facebook page or if it's more about paid reviews, sponsorships, paid endorsements - such as where one site/page owner pays another to endorse them via the Facebook page.

According to Facebook, branded content is defined in the following way:

Branded content on Pages is defined as content originating from a Page owner that features third party products, brands, or sponsors that are different from the Page owner.


And, if this won't apply to affiliate marketers, maybe you can explain a little more to me about whom this policy would affect or what restrictions it could cause.

I feel like this is targeting affiliates pretty hard. When they say "Third party products" it's just an easy way of saying "Affiliates selling other peoples stuff online".

I think facebook wants to be seen in a different light, like a higher authority similar to amazon or ebay. Knocking out affiliates and their pages would probably be a step in the direction of this, but who actually can figure out why any of the major websites do what they do. If facebook is doing this, is it reasonable to assume that they may be coming out with a platform similar to amazon and ebay to take over that kind of market? If they were to do this they would easily become one of the biggest buying and selling platforms in the world since they already have billions of people with facebook accounts.

In the end, I think this is targeting affiliates in order for facebook to possibly build their own platform later on. But I could be completely wrond lol Will Facebook


Thanks,

Yea I do think so Facebook is taking down links to third party sites thus eliminating Affiliate posts. But some are posting it under comments and it's still working.

You can still post your affiliate links under comments. It won't be taken down unless the post is deleted. The best way is to find popular post or a viral one and comment your affiliate link below it.
