    Hello!

    I can’t share my most recent blog post on Facebook; I keep hitting the share button but it won’t work. I was able to share it with Pinterest and Twitter just fine. The problem doesn’t seem to be with Facebook either, as I was able to share other sites to Facebook (I tested it). Help?

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

    I’m having the same issue. It won’t even let me post it when I copy and paste the link directly into Facebook.

    Although I post from WP to FB daily, I haven’t been able to do so for the past 24 hours either. Thanks Timethief for flagging this. Alas, the link you posted did not address the issue.

    I just lodged a complain with Facebook with a screen capture – just in case the problem is at their end (although I don’t think it is). Thanks, timethief.

    You should probably contact Facebook about this.

    Is it just our Share button that isn’t working, or are you also not able to just paste the URL into a Link status on Facebook?

    Yeah, that would definitely be a problem on Facebook’s end. I recommend contacting them.

    I can post other links to Facebook just fine. It’s only WordPress links that aren’t working. ;)

    If you are seeing the “Database Write Failed” error you will have to submit a please submit a report to Facebook Help.

    For me, there is no error message. The sharing process starts and then just stops. No error message at all.

    I was offered the suggestion to clear all cookies and cache from a support person. The first time I did it (cleared c&c and then restarted) I was able to share one time and then not anymore. So I re-did the whole process – cleared cookies & cache and restarted comp and then I was able to share again. I don’t know if things were just coincidentally fixed or if the suggestion worked. Just thought I would pass it on!

    Hello all,
    We seem to have deloveped the same problem as awanthi.

    One of our blogs is set to share (post automatically) blog posts on our Facebook Page’s timeline (in Dashboard>Settings>Sharing>connected to facebook page) but it has just stopped posting them, even thought within the dashboard it says it is connected to Facebook.

    We are currently having the same issue with sharing to our Twitter acount, it has stopped; which makes me wonder whether it is WordPress related?
