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 Facebook has unpublished over 3000 Fan pages or business pages for a very generic reason.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?

Twitter’s Organic Search Traffic up 20% Since Being Reindexed in Google

Since the last 6 months Twitter's organic search went up 20% after Google reindexed tweets into real time searches. This was according to SimilarWeb.

Twitter’s Organic Search Traffic up 20% Since Being Reindexed in Google

The summer that past Google only indexed about 3% of tweets that went public. But it seemed to have been enough to make a big difference in traffic from searches.

Between June and July was the largest increases that grew says SimilarWeb. Within this time the increase with desktop searches was 14%, meaning it was about 25 million visits.

Now according to new results seen people tend to stay longer on Twitter from Google searches. Says a study, desktop users that went on Twitter resulted in a bounce rate that decreased 6.5% within the last 4 months.

See : Twitter Increases Follow Limit From 2,000 to 5,000

Now thats isn't really surprising. As it seems that the searches was names of people or brand named. Using searches like that would typically create a stream of searches in Google.

But even with all this you probably wont see tweets thats about ideas like "best way to create traffic" unless for some strange reason it would be the hot topic of the day.

So what does all this mean to us? 

On paper numbers looks good, but the difference should be about the amount of traffic. So with this in mind it means that your tweets may be seen by more people. When someone is using your name or your brand name in doing searches.

So when you have a stronger presence on Twitter you can see advantages like


  • Traffic increasing on your website
  • Sales improve
  • You may get more followers 
  • And very important you should see more shares and retweets on your Twitter id.

But you have to remember your Twitter id should be indexed into Google searches for the advantages to be seen. If you don't see it, you should consider being more active on your Twitter id.

But with all that is said. One thing is a fact, with all things thats going on Twitter still doesn't see more joining. As Twitter's users that is active only went up to 3 million in the third quarter

Even though Twitter didn't see any improvement with the deal made with Google, we have to admit that it does create more traffic, that can be a huge advantage to Twitter users.

See : Twitter Launches Moments, The New Way to Discover Tweet Content

We think that its interesting to see what happens over the next for months to business on Twitter, to see how traffic referred from Google search may help businesses

You have any thoughts you want to share? Feel free to comment or contact us.
We love to know what our readers think about this interesting news. One thing is for sure. With Google indexing tweets into searches. It can be a very beneficial thing for anyone who has a website to get referral traffic.

What I like best in Moments that they get updated in real time. It is extremely good when it comes to see breaking news stories. When stories get updated, you will see a blue dot in the upper right corner of images which are associated with the Moment. You can even follow that moment by clicking on ‘follow the moment’ option. This will bring curated tweets for that particular moment directly into your timeline. Tweets will be stopped as the event will end, so you need not to worry about stopping it.

Mentions collections are perfectly curated by a team of human editors in real time. Twitter has its own team working for moments to ensure correct, current and accurate information land in your moments. Twitter has released a set of guidelines about how Moments content is selected. It underlines the data-driven and impartial nature of Moments content.

Twitter Launches Moments, a New Way to Discover Tweet Content : eAskme

There is no doubt that twitter is planning to generate more revenue through moments but at the same time twitter will not annoy users in moments by showing heap of commercial content. So Twitter has a good plan to keep it relevant for users.

The Opportunity of the Moment

In the beginning, Twitter team is working to assemble Moments. There will be some awesome moments which are created by partners. Moments gather content from Bleacher Report, the Washington Post, Buzzfeed, Fox News, Entertainment Weekly, Mashable, Getty Images,  NASA,  MLB, Vogue and New York Times. This will enable such groups to present own content on the Moments platform. This will increase user engagement with the content in a whole new way.

Live stories always generate more traffic and this will turn into a lot of revenue. As Twitter is allowing brands to create stories of their own, this will open up a whole new way to connect with th users via Twitter platform.

Real-Time Trends

Since the appointment of co-founder Jack Dorsey as their new CEO, Moments is a first big step for Twitter. If the things work as Twitter has planned, then it will open a new Pandora to showcase the strength of twitter`s platform, as the leader in real-time discussions and events. This will ultimately boost its revenue with this new revenue stream.

Have you tried to use Moments till now? Do you like Moments? or Do share your feedback for Twitter moments via comments.

In past few months everyone has noticed a growing number of website who are moving to HTTPs. Now Twitter is also going to join the HTTPs club. This is the latest biggest website to go to HTTPS, but it may take a different approach.

An associate of Twitter’s development team has recently published a new thread on Twitter Community forum about Twitter’s plans for HTTPS.

According to that twitter is only going to use HTTPs for new outbound links only, where other sites such as wikipedia and Reddit and Wikipedia have gone HTTPS site-wide.
