C Tann-Starr's Outside Blog


Dear Facebook: Where is Starbucks and the Outside Blog Minion Report?

Dear Facebook: Where is Starbucks and the Outside Blog Minion Report?

I did not delete my business fan page for the Outside Blog Minion Report but it has disappeared. Now I have to go check on the other ones and my widgets are down showing no one is connected there. I also can't find the Starbucks fan page so I know it's something on your end and not my end. I work really hard on my little blogs and as a customer I am not happy with your silence.

I can not run an ad campaign if I do not have  the specific fan page to advertise. If there is an issue, you should tell us so millions of people don't wonder over the thousands of conversations going on right now about how stuff appears to be deleted/missing/problem loading page error coded on the Facebook site but shows up in the search engines as still being out there in cyberspace available to select. I'm clicking links to nowhere here. I AM NOT HAPPY!

You gave us a broadcast banner when you upgraded to the new home page but are very quiet about how that upgrade has got fan pages winking out like dead stars all over the Internet. I WANT MY BUSINESS FAN PAGE FOR THE OUTSIDE BLOG MINION REPORT BACK WHERE IT BELONGS. I sent you a brief e-mail to info@facebook.com. Do you have staff to handle this? I wrote this post because they appear to be ignoring me (or overwhelmed with inquiries maybe?)...

Please do not ignore the writers who hang out and play on your website. We're users. We have cyberlives. We like living them...

It is very upsetting when our virtual homes abruptly disappear without warning and when we try to find out why we discover you appear not to give a damn. You gave a damn about telling us about your new look. You should also give a damn about our missing fan pages. I know you guys have great growth. Kudos and congrats for all of us users who like you, however, there are paying customers who are paying for advertisements on your website who have missing fan pages us fans can't access. I can't get my own to show up and I can't find Starbucks... Growth is not a good thing if you don't tell us why stuff is missing when we report it to you and ask you to please fix it. Your numbers wont help me if I decide to run an ad to reach people and my business fan page (with my fans) is gone.  

BTW, my widgets embedded on the websites that I pay for no longer work for my missing fan page. Please put the Outside Blog Minion Report back where it belongs so my peeps can stop asking me why I deleted something that I did not delete. Thank you.   

Update: 164 Starbucks pages and counting but mine is still gone. It's been deleted from the Fan Page directory.

Man - now this is a real bummer.  It's hard to get anywhere with FB when there is an issue.  I wish you luck on this C.

Wow there sure is alot of complaigning going on today.  Not sure what the problem is.


Posted by Team Honeycutt (Allen Tate) over 10 years ago

I hope you get this solved soon.  This is a crazy day......I bet I've talked to a dozen folks today that have weirdness going on.  Oh, and our office building got evacuated because there was a gas leak!

C-- hope this is resolved soon for you....FB at times just drives me crazzzzy.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate over 10 years ago

You tell 'em C.  While you are at it, tell them that trying to navigate your way around FB is like trying to get into a secret society.  You either know someone who knows someone, or you try and figure the bloody thing out yourself.  I have never seen something so non-user-friendly and I don't get why they make it that way.

I hope you get your page back, C. I don't do much on Facebook because I find it confusing as well. I couldn't even imagine trying to do what you're doing.

164 Starbucks entries are up but my page is still missing. I do not want to have to go to a bunch of sites and remove all those widgets but I may be forced to if they do not fix it.

I hate the new FB pages. I'm adjusting but I still can't find things as easy.

Whats up with the chat at the bottom and on the side?

No knowledge, no warning, no answers. My business fan page was completely deleted from the Facebook Fan Page directory. All that work is lost. Lots of broken links all over cyberspace and I am very angry. No one from that website has responded to me. Not a single contact from them.

This is where another Rainer sent me to get help. I figured I'd share the above link.

While I am stewing away over here I'm building a group page in Facebook for Club Chaos. If I have to dump my OBMR widgets I need to replace them with something else. It's in semi private settings and I have to go find Melodious and Amanda to figure out how we plan to fix that puppy up. To index or not to index, that is the Google question. :-) Maybe I will upload all those RainCamp pictures people are yelling at me to post, among other things. This is a group page instead of a fan page...

I accidentally blocked one of the applications I use on FB and I can't find ANY information on how to get it back! Oh, but I can't get rid of the tons of other crap I keep getting! I got a response that made no sense and was of no help, so I finally contacted the app and the parent company of that app, but I still don't have any answers =/  They really screwed up this time!

C, I'm so sorry to hear this and sure it's frustrating as anything.  Maybe this post will help call it to their attention and restore it for you....I hope something gets done.  Good luck...........

I have been up all night re-building the page. I have to remove the old widgets and replace it with the new widget. I posted links to most of my 2008 and 2009 material but am still missing a lot (photo albums and videos direct from my simm cards. Don't have Mixpo anymore so I can't use any of the old video files).  

My fans and conversations have been wiped... This totally whomps...

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 10 years ago

My biggest problem is the old page links are still dominating Google and are all broken. The new page links are not showing up in the rankings. It is going to take a while to sort it all out...
