Unable to connect to Facebook
@3ajl24 I promise, we will post here once we have news, you don’t have to keep asking. :)
The problem is on Facebook’s end, and we still have not heard back yet from our contact there.
For anyone just tuning in, you can find a more in-depth explanation at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/publicizing-my-post-to-facebook/page/3/#post-3320798
I am having the same issue..! I hope this is solved soon..! Keep us posted please..!
Sorry for the questions but because it has a big impact on our work
We understand it will probably have a big impact on your workflow, it certainly does on ours too.
For now, we recommend just sharing manually to Facebook.
We’ll update this as soon as we hear back from Facebook, and we won’t be able to even begin to address this until that happens, since the issue is on their end.
NEWS POSSIBLY NOT FB MALFUNCTION BUT CENSORSHIP?
One of my main readers who also uses my blog’s FB Page reports:
“Just tried to post the url and got this…
‘This post goes against our Community Standards on spam
WHAT YOU CAN DO
We’ll take another look at this post
If you didn’t post this, we can help secure your account”
The post in question (shared from another WP site) is my first that didn’t get onto FB Page and is analysis of international events at https://richards-watch.org/2019/06/03/monday-newsmix-2-deplorable-contemptible-and-winning/
So maybe FB’s cow-towing to Big Brother EU!!
I doubt that’s it, the connection between Facebook and WordPress.com broke for everyone at the same time. This wasn’t a targeted action, so very likely not censorship.
Overall, we won’t know until we hear back from our contact over there, so I’d caution against any speculation.
Now have another reader (on FB only) reacting to my news with this remark:
“I’ve been shadow banned from the Veronika West Facebook page. Facebook themselves ban/block users from certain Facebook pages, censorship…” (She’s a Christian who operates in gifts of Holy Spirit and prayer!!)
You’ll need to take that up with Facebook and their appeals process, that has nothing to do with the issue being discussed here.
Thank you macmanx, just thought you most helpful guys would want to know for info purposes.
So far, you’re the only person here to run into that issue when manually sharing, so it’s definitely a separate problem that you should go through Facebook’s appeals process for.
Appreciate your bearing with me and have informed my contacts accordingly on FB
Thanks for keeping us updated :)
Any updates on when this might be resolved? Thanks!
@ssammons28 not yet, but our developers are in touch with theirs. Hopefully we’ll hear back soon.
Pleased to report PARTIAL SUCCESS. I still cannot reconnect published posts to FB, as I described earlier, BUT A SCHEDULED POST (drafted yesterday on D-Day for publication 6am today) HAS CORRECTLY BEEN COPIED into my blog’s FB PAGE (ie not personal profile, into which I’ve had to copy url manually as FB won’t allow me to post direct into Page!)
Woot! I was able to reconnect the account again. I don’t know if it posts again but it appears to be partially working again.
working also again! Thank you whoever for resolving!
Well, it connected again, hope the publicize is also working as well.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop. We are still working with their developers and will post more information here as and when we have it :)
working also again! Thank you
