I don't know what's wrong with Facebook. They are deleting the links of my website I share on my page just a second after I share.

What I did:

I posted a link to my site's article on my Facebook page 1. I shared that post to my 5 pages (with link only, not the page 1 content). 1 second later, the post removed from other 5 pages while it is still there on page 1.

The content does not violate the FB rules in any way. Started happening suddenly. Help :(

Have you checked your site for malware?

Could this in some way be related to the problem you described earlier, in this thread? Is this the same Page?...

Please help, my Facebook page has disappeared!
I got no notification about removal of my page.

Have you tried to get feedback from Facebook about what the problem is?

MayankParmar - FB has rules. In order to participate there, you must follow those rules. You can get away with a little promotion, but too much and FB with flag you. Once you've stepped over that line, you are subject to the scrutiny of their of their editors. It seems this may have happened.

@RobertCharlton, Not that page. That page is gone. Facing on all other pages where I'm editor or admin. However, when I open the page manually and put in links - they don't delete it. But when I put it on one page and share that post to other pages, they delete from other pages. Strange.

Check the settings as follows
If you allow visitors to publish on your Page, their posts can appear in the Visitor Posts section after you click Posts on the left side of your Page. If you allow photo and video posts, posts by others can also appear in the Photos and Videos sections of your Page.
To allow or disable posts by other people:

Click Settings at the top of your Page.
From General, click Visitor Posts.
Select Allow visitors to the Page to publish posts or Disable posts by other people on the Page. If you allow visitors to publish posts, you can choose to:
Allow photo and video posts
Review posts by other people before they're published to the Page
Click Save Changes.

If you choose to review posts, posts by others will be hidden from your Page by default.

I remember seeing that.

I suspect it's something else, undocumented, which is there to combat what appears to be multiple link posting between "Pages"

I doubt Facebook will go into detail, for obvious reasons.
