    Since Facebook made the recent news feed changes, my blog posts have not showed up in my news feed. They get posted to my Facebook blog page, so that doesn’t seem to be the problem. Is anyone having a similar problem and any ideas how to resolve.

    (Of course, with the new confusing FB news feed, I may just be missing my blog posts, but I don’t think that’s the problem. I also have not seen other Networked blogs on my news feed.)

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

    I just read a possible explanation.

    Uh, oh: When users like content within Facebook, that activity no longer being publishes in the news feed, Skinny says.
    That includes liking posts on brand pages, friends’ walls, or the newsfeed. Pages liked within Facebook were also not showing up on newsfeeds.

    When posing a link from my fb company page to my wordpress hosted blog, it errors out . Are we no longer able to post Links to our blogs anymore?

    Are you all using Publicize? If so 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.

    i’m not using publicize. when i try to add the link from my business facebook page to my wordpress hosted page, i get : Something went wrong. We’re working on getting it fixed as soon as we can.

    That’s not the explanation, cpplan. The explanation is that ALL autoposted content is downgraded by Facebook and hardly ever shows in the news feed unless it somehow gathers lots of comments. This goes for Publicize and Networked Blogs and Notes and all of that ilk. It MAY also apply to things posted via Tweetmeme and the Twitter button here, but I’m not sure about that.

    Thanks, raincoaster — My posts always showed up on my news feed before FB made their changes yesterday. So I’m assuming your explanation is that FB just downgraded blog content as of yesterday. That’s not good.

    Just for clarification, my posts are STILL showing up on my blog’s Facebook page, they’re just NOT showing up on my news feed. Before yesterday, “liking” my page would automatically trigger new updates to show up on your news feed.

    My status updates or other posts are not displaying in News Feed.
    Your updates should appear in News Feed promptly. If your update hasn’t appeared in News Feed after several hours, please submit a report here. From the Facebook help center.

    This isn’t a WordPress.com issue, so best wishes with resolving it with Facebook support. :)

    YOu mean it’s not showing in your own news feed? In my experience when this happens, it’s because Networked Blogs has gone down temporarily.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I’ll see if I can get this resolved with Facebook. I do hope it’s a temporary issue, as raincoaster mentioned.
