Sharing to FaceBook

  1. So since getting the new FaceBook timeline, I've noticed that my blog posts aren't reaching FaceBook... I disconnected and reconnected and checked th activity log but nothing was there. We had this problem on NetworkedBlogs with my Blogger, but they reached the activity log, if not the timeline. My wordpress seems to have just vanished, but still gets to Twitter successfully >.>

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

  2. I have noticed this as well.

    Since getting the new timeline my posts are not publicizing on Facebook. I have to do this manually for now.

    Does WordPress have any idea when this is likely to be resolved?

  3. @hschacko
    Are you using Publicize? If you have a connection failure which frequently happens then please try the full reconnect procedure detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.

  4. I tried that... I've noticed that on the home page, the post appears, but not in my timeline or activity log... so they are getting there, but not where they should be

    Are you using Publicize? If so then please see above.

    Alternatively you can use Networked Blogs http://www.networkedblogs.com/ or RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti 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.

  6. Networked Blogs has the same issue - am on a beta that sorta fixes it, but still a little glitchy. When sorted it'll be rolled out to everyone

  7. @hschacko
    The timeline issue is a Facebook issue. I went to the Facebook Help Center and found this for you Profile/Wall (Timeline) http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=188968437817774#Content-on-my-Facebook-profile-disappears-and-reappears.

  8. But it doesn't reappear - it's not even in my activity log. NB had to change the way blog posts are posted to FB to make it work, but is still in beta... the wordpress ones don't post at all. If they did, they would be in the activity log, but they aren't.

    I don't know how NB fixed it, but may be the only real solution... I know they post as links now instead of app messages. It's a problem with a lot of the apps I've noticed though.

    The publicize option is authorised for Facebook. Done the disconnect and connect to no avail.

    In relation to the link you offered from Facebook, I don't believe that this is the issue because it never publishes to my wall.

    I am sure it is not a coincidence that the problem has arisen since the introduction to the new timeline. My gut feeling is that it may have something to do with the fact that when sharing the link, it's not sure which 'group' to share it with on Facebook (e.g. Friends, Family, Public etc)

  10. It seems this is a Facebook issue and Facebook Staff are aware of the issue. If you have further information or your issue differs from what's been posted in the Facebook Help Center then I think you ought to post it there.
