Or how I lost the ability to see my news feed of the pages I follow with my Facebook page for my blog.
Imagine my surprise last night when I went on to my Facebook page for this blog and tried to get to the news feed portion to see what everyone else was up to.
The news feed shows the postings of the other pages I follow from the FamilyTreesMayContainNuts profile. Every time I tried I was redirected back to my personal Facebook page with the news feed from my friends and family.
Don’t get me wrong. They are nice people and I am interested in what they are doing too but I had already spent some time with them last night and was moving on.
The news feed for the blog page is mostly other blogs and some businesses. I am sure everyone will notice a drop in their visits due to this issue.
There is a solution I have found. Not one that I like but as always I will give it a go, as if I had any choice, and see what I can learn from it.
If this is happening to you here is what you need to do. Go to https://business.facebook.com/
Create an account in a few easy steps. Going forward you will access your business Facebook account via this Business Manager, like it or not.
You will still go on to your personal Facebook and log in. Then in the little drop down menu you will see your Business manager and link to the page you want. It is just a little lower down on the menu than it used to be.
Once you log in you are taken to your manager’s page. To go to your active page click on the name of it. This will open up to your Facebook page but only the page where you post!!!
If you want to see the news feed of the people/pages you have liked and followed you will need to choose that from the sidebar.
I understand the need for a better way to manage business pages in Facebook. This gives you the opportunity to add employees in with their own logins and to keep your business details private from them. You can limit what they can access. I am sure there are many other good features for business reporting and tracking.
What is not cool is once again a change has been made and as far as I know nobody told us. I see online that this has been going on for almost a year!!!! Switching people a little at a time. A very frustrating change. Just notify people of what changes you are making. They certainly must be able to put a message in everyone’s box.
Did this happen to any of you? How did you find out about it? Just by shock or did you read it somewhere beforehand? Have you followed my Facebook page yet? What? Get over to my sidebar and click that button!!
