As of Thursday, some users have started noticing that their Facebook updates are no longer showing up on Twitter, or other small social networking websites.
It all started when one Facebook user publicly shared the complaint on the community help page, “Page updates not posting to my twitter account (has been working fine up until today) help!” Many users echoed the same issue, and a few others offered helpful suggestions, which included links to contact pages and a recommendation to use Hootsuite.
The bug has been reported to Facebook, but at press time, nothing has been done about it. TNW has contacted both Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter. They will keep us updated on the issue.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has been getting a bad rep lately. Earlier this summer, financial experts and stock traders complained that the social media giant set their initial public offering to high. Then, last week, rumors began circulating the Internet that Facebook posted users old private messages from years ago on their timelines, but that rumor proved false. The latest glitch only adds to the ever-growing list of reasons why social media users are losing patience for Facebook.
It’s surprising that this glitch hasn’t gotten much in terms of press. Although this issue may affect a small number of users, it’s still important that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) addresses this issue as soon as possible. Hopefully, the social media megasite is currently working on this glitch and will have it fixed within a few hours, although at the rate it’s going, it could take a few days. Right now, the best move for Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) would be to acknowledge the problem, in order to let their users know they are working on a solution. In the meantime, users should sit tight until the company solves the problem, or they could opt to use an alternative like Hootsuite.
