Hi All,For those of you who use facebook and have been kind enough to 'like' the UKC facebook page - some help please...For a few days now I have been unable to share posts I place on facebook to other groups - CHECC for example or 'Cavers of Facebook' No idea why and almost impossible to get an answer from FB.Love it or loathe it, fact is sharing threads from UKC onto FB helps promote the forum.If you see a post on the UKC FB page and would share it, especially to CHECC/Cavers of Facebook/other if relevant, I'd be grateful, thank you Pegasus
Are people still really daft (OK stupid) enough to still use Facebook? Don't you know it's just a data harvesting site (along with What's App, Instagram, etc.) that just looks at your texts, emails, contacts, and so on and takes them and sells them.
Jane, what exactly is the issue? When you say you can't share do you mean there is no option to do it or that when you try it fails? Is there an error message? No optionFacebook constantly tighten up privacy as it's the topic of the moment. Couple of things to look at...If you are sharing a post from your own personal feed you need to make sure the privacy settings are correct. Edit the post and check at the bottom (next to the save button) what it says. If it says something like "friends only" then you won't be able to share it to a public page. You need to change it to "public" then you will get the share button. By default a new post is usually "friends only" by default. You can also set this in a similar way when you post it in the first place. Not sharing from personal feedIf you're sharing a link on a public page (UKC's Facebook page for example) you can use the debugger tool to preview what it will look like first: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug. If it has not been shared on FB before you will get a button that says "scrape again". Click it to get the most up to date details then when you share it, FB already has the details of the page ready. Will look at this, thank you, I looked, mumbo jumbo Hope that helps. Not really, but thanks anyway
I've just tried to share a post from my Caver Keith Facebook page to a Facebook group that I am a member of.Usually when I start typing in the name of the group, e.g. Cavers of Facebook, Facebook auto-completes the name. It doesn't now, and even when the name of the group is typed in fully the Post button stays inactive.Is this what you are experiencing, Pegasus?It does appear to be a glitch at the moment. I'm sure that the nice programmers at Facebook will have it up and running again shortly.
Selling data? Yeah probably but they can only sell what you give them
I'd be far more worried about our own government given they want to create a database full of everybodies sexual proclivities in a few months.
