What Is the Main Reason for Un-Publishing Facebook Pages

#GiveUsOurPagesBack this hashtag has been trending on Facebook and elsewhere for more than a week. And for the right reasons. Facebook has unpublished over 3000 Fan pages or business pages for a very generic reason.

Hundreds of millions of fan base are directly affected with no prior warning or reasoning or even a person to talk to on the issue. Yes, Facebook does give fan pages an option to appeal, but what you receive is a computer generated areply. In some cases, the appeal button itself is not working. There is never an actual person to talk to! Till date Facebook has not issued any official statement regarding their unnecessary action nor replied to any appeal.

Page admins started this hashtag in order to generate a response from the company, but to no avail. Some have staged to revolt a little differently:

Facebook so far –
This had always been a platform where your mom and dad and everyone you went to school with are on. Above all, you could even find that person you had been trying to avoid all your life. It was and is a platform where bad videos and opinions were promoted at length. Pretty bland.

 Interestingly, a couple of years ago odd pages sprang up on this platform churning out humor on every conceivable topic. And the face of Facebook transformed from a place where relatives post bad videos and racist opinion to the one where some of the funniest and dumbest concepts are born. Noticeably from then on new profiles on Facebook skyrocketed and people started spending more time sharing and liking these humorous content. Facebook became ubiquitous to internet users.

These posts provided a much-needed break from the mundane vacation photos and whiny Facebook statuses. Users started viewing and sharing more of these posts and less from publishers.

Gradually marketers realized the value of the contents as one of the easiest ways to humanize their products, gain attention and brand their company.

With a huge organic results and user interaction, why is Facebook un-publishing these pages?


With hundreds of users asking the same questions, the reasons has not been disclosed officially. Though some social media experts are of the opinion that Facebook is trying to regain lost revenue on Facebook ads or it could be a system glitch. Then again there are different viewpoints being thrown in. read some of them below.

-    This is what must have happened. This platform is free for the users but funded by the value it brings to them.

According to Facebook’s stats, a normal user views approx. 300 posts per day but atleast 15000 posts are generated and shared on a daily basis. Thus Facebook shows particular user posts related to the most liked, shared or commented by that user. Primarily this happens to be the meme and other humorous content. Thus there was always a fight for audience attention and creative; insightful content is simply left behind.

As a result publishers and businesses are unable to reach their audience making their paid ads ineffective. Hence Facebook is losing out on revenue via Facebook ads.

Unpublishing pages might be a way to show more sponsored ads to users thus making paid marketing a success!

If this is the case, Facebook should come up with a better method of tackling this issue than un-publishing pages without any reason or notice.

-    Facebook may be facing a system glitch which is probably showing a particular page as a spam or posting objectionable content.

-    On the other hand,Mashable has been thinking from the perspective of a publisher. According to them, the news feed changes may spell trouble for the publishers.

-    However, the most genuine reason we found is‘wrong advertisement’. So if a fan page abides by all the terms laid down by Facebook but advertises adult content will be unpublished. Fair enough, I guess.

Conclusion –

Nothing much to conclude here, just that these social platforms derives its value from their users. If they frustrate these users the platforms very existence may get compromised. Least Facebook can do is answer questions and remove doubts.

What do you think, is Facebook right in un-publishing pages as per will without justifying reasons or even giving a warning?

Facebook is Updating Notes for The Long Term in Content Publishing

A month ago Facebook started with a test on changing notes. Wanting to make it better for publishing content and had long term in mind. It started off as a change for only a selected number of people. But it was announced that Facebook will be releasing the new updated notes through the whole of Facebook.

The idea was to create a sort of a blogging platform. For now it is only available for desktop users. But it can be seen  on mobile too. With the new notes the focus is changed to the content.Not as much focus in on the Facebook profile as expected.

Now you can format in the same way as you would for a blog. In the new notes you will find you have headings, quotes, bullets and more. While you have the option of a cover photo. Now you can resize photos on notes and caption photos too.

See : Embed Facebook Photo Album in Your WordPress Blog

So with this you have the chance to change your important events in your life. It has the ability to open new doors that we wouldn't think of. But it seems that Facebook may have forgotten mobile users with this improved version of notes.

With the changes Facebook does give suggestions for the new version of notes. If you went on vacation and you want to recap that, or any event in your life that is important to you, you can share with people that care. You can speak your mind on something that you saw or write a letter you want to share with the world. Now even recipes may get much needed attention. Depending on your personal likes. You can see the new version by going to Facebook.com/notes. For mobile you can search notes.

But curious about the fact that there is a need for mobile publishing with notes. What makes it strange is the fact that Facebook is known as the mobile first company. It seems to be half hearted approach to mobile users. As the use of creating notes is limited to desktop users. It seems that Facebook is getting ready to launch a note app dedicated to mobile users.

But it is acknowledged that Facebook should give more focus to mobile versions of notes. What do you think about this news? Have you started using it? Share your opinions. We will love to hear from our readers.

    It has been in the works since July 2014. First it was thought that Facebook would join Stripe. As it is the company that uses Twitter's buy button. But now it is known that Facebook decided on Shopify.

    A small group of merchants already use Shopify. So you may see it already on Facebook. But it is still growing to include different businesses.

    First priority was still privacy. Shopify is user friendly as it has privacy in mind. So it promises to be secure and safe even when using Facebook. It is a personal choice to save payment details for future purchases. But with that said. Remember it is more convenient and easy to purchase that way.

    Starting today US based merchants will start to receive invitations to use the Buy button. If you are a merchant and you are interested in using the Buy button. But still haven't received an invite. You can sign up by going to the bottom of the Shopify announcement. You can join there to express that you are interested in joining this test.

    Once this sales channel on Facebook is added to your account on Shopify. You will be able to post products with the option to buy. Also you can advertise the posts with paid advertising. For safety all customer and order details goes from Facebook to Shopify. Where it will be managed.

    It seems to be the new trend for companies to add purchase buttons on their respective platform. Twitter was the first as they started Last September. In February Pinterest announced that thy will be adding a Buy button. Last month news broke that Google will start using their own power button.
