My ‘love’ of Facebook is well noted and I regularly use on a business level but use daily on a personal level – keeping in touch with friends and family that I don’t see regularly is by far the highest point and in all honesty you can keep your games I am just not interested.
However, it seems recently that there have been so many glitches with Facebook that it is starting to drive me slightly mad!Â Having watched The Social Network over the weekend for the second time (we even went to the pictures to see this one) there was one scene in the film where the founder of Facebook was making the point that it must and will never go offline.Â He’s quite right, I cant remember the site ever being offline, but he neglected to say ‘but it might go wrong now and again’.
I have found one helpful hint to stop Facebook messing with your head is to insert the word beta into the url i.e. http://www.beta.facebook.com as this seems to make the majority of issues resolve themselves, however, just recently I am struggling on a daily basis with making apps work with my pages.Â This is not an issue I have with my personal profile it is just business pages, and due to the nature of our work, I am admin on an ever growing list of pages and when I find something new, useful and just damn good obviously I want to add this new service to all pages applicable.Â So why does Facebook make it so difficult?!Â Â I am kind of thinking it is because Facebook was never meant to be for business use and so has not upgraded this side of their business as well as the personal side of it.
As ever, interested to hear other people’s experiences – answers on a Facebook post please
