Facebook: “Sorry, there was a problem with this link” --

  1. this is apparently impacting quite a few people and yet there doesn't seem to be a response from Facebook anywhere.

    there is a response from wordpress, but nothing was accomplished or resolved.

    My blog is losing traffic rapidly.

    Can anyone speak to whether or not this is being addressed anywhere?

    thank you.

    The blog I need help with is beyondmeds.com.

  4. You're welcome.

  5. Hi Monica,

    So far, I'm not able to reproduce the error described in the blog post, but my first thinking is this is a safety measure provided by Facebook to warn users about visiting shared links that may be potentially malicious. This does not apply only to WordPress.com links, but to other sites as well. Because of that, this is actually something we can't do anything about. What you might want to do is visit Facebook's Help Community and post your concerns there:

    Sorry I wasn't able to be of much help. Thanks for asking!

  6. all the chatter suggests it's happening disproportionately to wordpress users...

    I would hope you'd be interested in that. I guess if others keep reporting it maybe you'll take more interest.

    thanks.
