Has WordPress changed how the number of followers is calculated? I ask because I used to have 188 followers. When I checked the other day, it had dropped to 36. I can’t imagine my writing has gotten so bad or infrequent that I would lose that many followers!
Not for some time, actually, because I don’t like that there isn’t an option when publishing a post to add a comment for FB before it is publicized on my FB wall. At least that was the case awhile back when I used it. Maybe that has changed. So, instead I’ve just been taking the short link and posting a status update in FB, which allows me to write something about the post as well as provide the link.
At any rate, I followed the steps in the link you provided and now it looks like the count is back to around what it was previously (higher, even!). Thanks for the help!
