One question that comes up quite frequently is why a post will be published on Null on Facebook. When a given metric does not apply to the post, Facebook will consider it invalid. Facebook will automatically remove the post from your feed and give you an error. This article will look at why certain posts are published on null on Facebook.

What Does Null on Facebook Mean?

The null value is used to signify that the server did not respond when you published your post. This may be caused by any number of things, including:

  • Your Facebook settings are incorrect, and you need to change them as soon as possible.
  • Your browser might not have permission to connect with Facebook. If this happens, try connecting from another browser or using a different computer.
  • You might have encountered a technical error in uploading your image or video and need to repeat that step before proceeding.  

Why Do You Get an Error Saying Your Facebook Post Will Be Published on Null?

If you get an error saying your Facebook post will be published on null, it means that the feed has encountered an error. This could mean that you didn’t meet the requirements or that something is wrong with your settings. If this happens, try checking the following things.

Facebook Account Permissions

If you’re seeing an error message saying something about your post being published on null, it means you’ve got some work to do.

You should ensure that your Facebook privacy settings are set correctly and that you’ve got the permissions you need to publish a post. If you’re still getting this error message, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Facebook
  2. Click on the Account tab at the top of the page
  3. Click Edit Settings on the right-hand side
  4. Scroll down to Create New Post and click it
  5. Make sure that Public is selected under Post Type (if it isn’t already) and click Save Changes

Facebook Privacy Settings

If you get an error message saying that your post will be published on null, it could mean that there is a problem with the privacy settings of your page. You can verify this by checking your settings and ensuring they’re set up correctly. You can also contact customer care if you need clarification on the settings.

Logging Out and Logging In

If the error persists, you can try logging out and in again. In most cases, this is what it takes to refresh your Facebook account settings.

Facebook Community Guidelines

You should also go through Facebook community guidelines if your post is not getting published. Some of the guidelines are stated below.

  1. Treat everyone with respect, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or ability.
  2. Be respectful of other people’s opinions and ideas. This includes but is not limited to people you disagree with.
  3. Be kind and considerate towards other people’s time. Do not ask someone to do something for you unless you have their explicit consent.
  4. Do not post things that are hateful or hurtful to others on Facebook. This includes posts that promote violence against any group based on race or ethnicity; posts that promote self-harm or suicide.
  5. Do not post anything that contains material that could be considered child pornography/explicit sexual content (i.e., nudity/sexually suggestive images/videos).

If a Post Is Rejected on Facebook, Can You Still Publish it on Instagram?

Facebook has strict guidelines when it comes to what types of content are allowed on the platform. If a post is rejected, it means that Facebook has determined that your content doesn’t comply with their policies and will be removed from the platform.

Instagram is different, though. It’s a photo-sharing platform where users can share any type of content they want, as long as it’s deemed appropriate for the site by its community members (which may mean there are certain things banned).

Whether or not you’re able to publish your rejected Facebook post could depend on whether or not your audience wants to see it – the more “inappropriate” something is, the less likely they’ll want to see it in their feed!


Facebook is a great way to stay socially connected. Whether through liking and commenting or writing short, informative posts, people will appreciate the effort you put into social media. These interactions also provide opportunities to strengthen existing relationships while creating new and better ones.

Social media is also great for interacting with clients, potential members, and customers. Just be sure to clearly state who you are and what you’re trying to do when making your post. Also, ensure that you adhere to all the specific guidelines for each social media outlet you use.
