Facebook, in an effort to stop the various nefarious activities that screwed with not only it’s site but social media in general, has stopped ‘allowing’ WordPress to automatically post to it. That means that if you are seeing this, it’s probably because you subscribed to it (thank you), you saw it on other media sites like Twitter, Linked In, or I posted it on Facebook (if I’m not in Facebook Jail, funny, not funny).
I understand their rationale but for people like me who are fairly active on Facebook, they are preventing ‘free’ advertising which is what their ultimate goal is. As mentioned in my Facebook Jail article (which, ironically got me put IN Facebook Jail for posting it), they’ve screwed me over many times when I pay for advertising or they put me in jail when I post too often or too much. I get that, they have to control spammers, but really, their site is ideal to post in the various groups I am in. I occasionally do pay other posters to post about my books, after all, I have to watch it or I’ll be in trouble with Facebook (which happens often enough).
I really hope the improvements on Facebook actually work, however, it’s like pulling teeth these days as their site goes through updates (without telling us). They learned their lessons by not announcing some of their updates as people in general don’t like change and think their opinions will matter with such a large company. Good luck with that, all you are doing is bitch’n and moan’n about something YOU have no say in. We are the product, not the powers-that-be and once you realize that, the better.
