Sharing on Facebook

  1. My blog was automatically posting to Facebook but for some reason the link has been cut. When I try to relink it on the Setting/Sharing function, I'm told that I don't manage the Facebook site (although I set it up and still manage it). My blog is okiwi.net.nz, and the Facebook page is 'O'Kiwi On Tour'. Do you know how I can re-establish the link?
    Thanks

  2. You might try reconnecting your Facebook account through Publicize:

  3. Hi jackiedana

    Thanks, but my blog is still not reconnected. In fact, the number of my blog followers displayed has been cut by the number of friends on my Facebook account.
    When I try and reconnect, the 'set options' button (on the Sharing Settings/Facebook section) never takes me to the Facebook account settings. It just comes up blank.
    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks

  4. Just to be sure, did you try the crucial app deleting step in the full reconnect procedure?

    If so, which browser (and version of) are you using right now?

  5. Yes, I did delete the app. I'm using a Mozilla Firefox browser (not sure what version). I'm wondering if the problem is that I manage 2 Facebook accounts. The reconnecting process always takes me to a personal account with few friends, whereas the one I want to reconnect to has many more followers and friends and was set up to link to my blog.

  6. Yes, that would mean you aren't logged in to the right account.

    Please try just logging out of Facebook first.

    If that doesn't work, you may need to clear your browser's cookies.

  7. Thanks, that appears to have worked. When I went to the WordPress admin page in IE, it took me to my Facebook account that I rarely use (even after I cleared the caches and cookies). However, by going to the admin page in Mozilla I was able to reconnect with the Facebook page that I wanted.
    I guess I'll find out next time I post something whether it automatically displays on Facebook, but at the moment it's including the Facebook friends in the blog followers tally. Thanks again.

  8. You're welcome!
