Facebook Annoyances

If you’ve been wondering why the posts from Chart Porn haven’t been showing up in your Facebook newsfeed, it’s because Facebook keeps messing with the default settings. If you want to see it in your feed you have to not only “Like” the page, you also need to click on “Get Notifications” as well. (this applies to pretty much all “pages”, so you might want to check the settings on other artist/non-profit pages you enjoy)  I don’t know why Facebook wants people to essentially “double-Like” pages — I suspect it’s related to them trying to extort money from pages to “promote” them instead.

There is actually a difference between items showing up in your timeline (when you like a page and Facebook somehow thinks it should post it to you) and getting a notification (red thingy in the top bar) each time someone posts to a page 🙂
