Fix For posts on Facebook

As many have experienced this week, Facebook is blocking posts

When you try to post with a (blogger) post you see a message very similar to this

Chances are when you first signed up for your blog you were listed as (as I was).  The recent change to (which was done automatically to me without any notification that I could see) has been quite messy!

As of this week my bandage for the problem was to PIN my posts on Pinterest and then post the pin on facebook.  Not really a great way to do it.


With the knowledge that I was orginally a (and not .ca) I tried an experiment and it worked.
I found a fix for the issue on facebook.

It is much easier if I show you!

It also works if you find the .ca part within individual posts and then you change it to .com .  It took a little longer for it to post to facebook but it did work too.

I want to thank everyone that took the time to send their thoughts and wishes to Lydia.  Those 5 mins you spent signing it mean so much.  There are over 40 pages of signatures.  It was passed on by Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. By clicking on the card below you can look at all the wonderful messages for Lydia Herrle and her family. Although I know many of the people who signed, there are many who I have yet to meet.  I never discount the kindness of strangers and am grateful that there are so many thoughtful people in the world.

Facebook Offers and How They Work

New From Facebook Pages - Facebook Offers

There is a new way to attract people to your facebook fan page and your business/blog/website etc.
Facebook offers have launched and it is a FREE and simple way to let your fans know what is new and exciting on your page.  The steps are quite easy to follow.

Creating a Facebook Offer

  1. You must be an admin on the fan page you wish to create an offer
  2. On the status bar it should list Status/ Photos and now a new menu of Offers/Events/Questions
  3. Click on Offers
The additional steps were followed on our Those2Girls - Six Degrees of Us! Facebook Page.  I created an offer of FREE EVENT LISTINGS on our new website.
  • After I clicked Offers, I uploaded a photo.  Remember it must look eye-catching while fitting within 90x90 pixels
  • Next list what your offer is. Be clear.  Remember your goal is to attract people, not make them guess what it's about.  Also make sure you can describe your offer in 90 characters.
  • Then under your offer picture click where it says Unlimited.  Pick how many people may claim your offer.  Since mine does not cost anything other than my time, I choose Unlimited
  • Beside the limit click on the date listing and choose an expiry date
  • Click the Terms and Conditions line to put your specifics. Then hit Enter
  • A blue Preview button will appear and it will show you what your offer will look like
  • Either pick Edit to go back to the earlier steps, or pick Post to set your Offer live

The one I did looked like this

Once it was live I clicked on where it says Get Offer.  A Pop-Up window came up displaying the offer with a Get Offer button.  After I clicked Get Offer an new Pop-Up listed that the offer was sent to my email and an Okay button. It then showed in my activity that I had claimed an offer from the Those2Girls -Six Degrees of Us! Fan Page.

I immediately received the offer in my email.  It listed the offer as well as the terms and conditions.  There was also a Share Offer button.  When I clicked it a Pop-Up Window came up with the offer as well as a spot to add a comment on it and then you can post it to Facebook.
