Facebook integration doesn't seem to work

  1. I have connected my blog (http://gerryco23.wordpress.com/) to my Facebook and Twitter accounts, but although new posts appear on Twitter, they don't in Facebook. I am puzzled by the details on the Facebook integration Support page (http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-integration/) as few of the following options do not appear on my Settings/Sharing page:

    "Find the block for Facebook at the top of the Settings -> Sharing page and click Connect to Facebook." : there is no block like that illustrated, so I cannot get to the next stage - to allow app to post to my wall (currently posts do not appear on my wall, so I assume friends are not seeing them either).

    "If you would like to Publicize your posts to your Facebook page, instead of your Facebook profile, click on the “Set Options” link underneath Facebook on your Settings -> Sharing page. You will need to connect your blog to Facebook first. You will need to use a Facebook account that has a Profile with administrative rights to the Page.": no 'set options' link is visible on my Settings/Sharing page, so I am unable to do this either.

    Can you advise, please?

  2. Hi there,
    1. Try flushing your FB cache but disconnect from FB first http://umairj.com/146/how-to-clear-facebook-shares-cache/
    2. Try the full reconnect procedure again detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.

    Note: RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti can be used for posting to Facebook walls if you prefer. RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.
