Jordan Blackshaw, 20, from Cheshire and Perry Sutcliffe-Keenan, 22, from Warrington, were imprisoned after setting up Facebook pages calling for unrest in their home towns.
Blackshaw's page, "Smash Down Northwich Town", encouraged people to gather "behind maccies" -- believed to be the McDonald's restaurant in Northwich town centre -- last Tuesday.
Sutcliffe-Keenan's creation, "Let's Have a Riot in Latchford", called for people to riot the following day.
"The sentences passed down today recognise how technology can be abused to incite criminal activity and sends a strong message to potential troublemakers," Phil Thompson, Cheshire Police Assistant Chief Constable, said.
"Anyone who seeks to undermine that will face the full force of the law."
