Facebook Pages Not Letting Businesses Post Links

It seems to be a rough day in the social media world. A lot of Twitter users have been experiencing problems on and off, and some businesses with Facebook pages have been unable to post links throughout the day.

We noticed this ourselves at first, but then when searching the Twitterverse, saw others complaining about it as well.

Here are a few of those complaints. Let us know if you’ve been experiencing problems yourself.

I wonder how much web traffic this is costing everybody. Facebook can be a tremendous source of not only traffic for sites, but engagement with user around a site’s content. If Facebook doesn’t get this problem fixed soon, there will no doubt be plenty of irate businesses.

Regular status updates do appear to be working, as do links from personal profiles.

We’ve reached out to Facebook, and will update if we receive a comment.
