Can't share to Facebook!

  1. Hello!

    I can't share my most recent blog post on Facebook; I keep hitting the share button but it won't work. I was able to share it with Pinterest and Twitter just fine. The problem doesn't seem to be with Facebook either, as I was able to share other sites to Facebook (I tested it). Help?

    The blog I need help with is uncertaincrossroads.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm having the same issue. It won't even let me post it when I copy and paste the link directly into Facebook.

  3. Have you poeple considered posting to the Facebook help forum or simply searching threads there for known issues? http://www.facebook.com/help/somethings-not-working/get-help-logging-in

  4. I have flagged this thread for Staff attention.

    Having the same exact issue - I sent the question to support!

  6. Although I post from WP to FB daily, I haven't been able to do so for the past 24 hours either. Thanks Timethief for flagging this. Alas, the link you posted did not address the issue.

  7. I just lodged a complain with Facebook with a screen capture - just in case the problem is at their end (although I don't think it is). Thanks, timethief.

  8. also having problems - my browser is updated and i tried on multiple browsers... it is on their end

  9. This is just to let everyone know there are multiple threads on Facebook issues and all are flagged for Staff attention. Hopefully, people wil stop creating new ones.
    (1) can't post links manually
    (2) sharing button not working
    (3) reconnection of publicize app not working

  10. Thanks - this for sure wordpress specific cause i can't post other stuff

  11. i meant i can post other things

  12. You should probably contact Facebook about this.

    Is it just our Share button that isn't working, or are you also not able to just paste the URL into a Link status on Facebook?

  13. can't do the share button or paste the link in

  14. Yeah, that would definitely be a problem on Facebook's end. I recommend contacting them.

  15. I can post other links to Facebook just fine. It's only WordPress links that aren't working. ;)

  16. Please post the exact error message you receive here.

  17. If you are seeing the "Database Write Failed" error you will have to submit a please submit a report to Facebook Help.

    For me, there is no error message. The sharing process starts and then just stops. No error message at all.

    I was offered the suggestion to clear all cookies and cache from a support person. The first time I did it (cleared c&c and then restarted) I was able to share one time and then not anymore. So I re-did the whole process - cleared cookies & cache and restarted comp and then I was able to share again. I don't know if things were just coincidentally fixed or if the suggestion worked. Just thought I would pass it on!

  20. Hello all,
    We seem to have deloveped the same problem as awanthi.

    One of our blogs is set to share (post automatically) blog posts on our Facebook Page's timeline (in Dashboard>Settings>Sharing>connected to facebook page) but it has just stopped posting them, even thought within the dashboard it says it is connected to Facebook.

    We are currently having the same issue with sharing to our Twitter acount, it has stopped; which makes me wonder whether it is WordPress related?

  21. I am also having this problem! I used to be able to post to Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, and Linkedin just fine, but recently it has only been posting to twitter. Whenever I check off the Facebook option and update the post, it doesn't post at all )=

    That and the Twitter publicize option won't let me uncheck it!

    What is going on?
