Can't get Facebook Publicize to work

    I can’t seem to get my Facebook publicize to work. I published my most recent blog post yesterday, but it hasn’t shown up on my facebook page. I have the official connection on the WordPress side, and I don’t seem to have anything blocking it on the FaceBook side, so I’m sort of confused. I clicked on the publicize feature of my now already published post, and it showed the the box was unchecked for some reason. So I checked it, then clicked update. But when I opened the feature again for that post, the check box was unchecked again. Can someone help me figure out what’s wrong?

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

    I’ve had the same problem today. Granted it’s been months since I last posted, but I checked my settings on WP and FB and both seemed fine. I hope we find the answer!

    1. Try flushing your FB cache but disconnect from FB first http://umairj.com/146/how-to-clear-facebook-shares-cache/

    2. (a) 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.
    (b) http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-twitter

    3. See also publicize troubleshooting http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#troubleshooting

    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.

    Please note that reconnecting Publicize with Facebook and/or with Twitter does not re-publicize missed posts, but it will work for future posts. That means if you have a post that has been published on the blog and does not appear on Facebook now you will have to post manually to Facebook.

    I have the same problem – when I connect Publicize to my hosted WordPress blog, the last dialog box offers the option to publicize to my FB profile or to my FB Page. However the dialog box doesn’t show the actual Page and there’s only one radio button – the one for my FB profile!

    I’ve followed the instructions in the Publicize support pages and I do have Admin rights to the Page connected to my FB Profile, so that’s not the problem.

    I’ve resorted to RSS Graffiti and it looks like it’s going to work (Just havent posted anything yet!)

    I am having the same issue as described by julianmcnally. I have my Facebook account linked, but it is not giving me my pages as options to publicize to when connecting upon setup. I am administrator for 5 facebook pages that are connected to my profile account, and none of them are showing up.

    I followed the directions that are listed in the following places and have the most up-to-date jetpack.

    Just an update…My blog post finally showed up on my Facebook page about an hour after initially posting. I hadn’t had time to try any of the suggestions posted by time thief, it just randomly decided to pop up!
