Where has my Facebook Business Page gone?

That’s the cry around the web this morning as Facebook seems to have somehow lost a large proportion of Business Pages over night. Not the best news to wake up to, especially when checking on mine and a few of my clients’ pages, they have indeed gone AWOL.

Even more interesting is that some people can see their pages on their phone apps, but not on the web.

To add to the confusion, some people can see some pages, when others can’t see them at all and just get a ‘oops not found’ message.

What’s going on Facebook? First the changes to the pages, then messing up the chronological order of things, and now losing my page altogether – can I have it back please?

If your page has disappeared, try posting on the Facebook Pages Business Page (which of course is still there!) – the more of us that post, the more likely someone is to listen. I’ve also emailed support, but I won’t be holding my breath on that one.

Luckily my website, blog and Twitter page are still there – another great reminder that it’s better to spread your marketing than put all your eggs in one basket :)

Is your page still there? Let me know with a link in the comments below and I’ll check it out to see if I can see it too!

  1. Mine’s still there – well, I can see it at least!

  2. Mine is alive, fingers crossed for you all that have yours down, that they have a DB backup and they will be online again soon!

  3. Yep I can see yours Angela

  4. Can see yours too Kip

  5. Oh dear. Perhaps they’ve all trotted off to a Facebook Fan Page Party

  6. Can you see what it is now? (Said in a Rolf Harris voice) http://www.facebook.com/ValenciaProperty

  7. Yep yours is fine for me too Graham

  8. All of ours seem unaffected, which is good, but thanks for the heads up!

    As you say – this just re-inforces that you always need to think “what if?” with your marketing – especially online. What if Facebook kick you out? What if you lost your great google ranking? What if Twitter wasn’t “hip” any more?

    If any one of these would shut you down before you have time to address the damage – you need to make some changes! :)

  9. Mine’s there http://www.facebook.com/angelikasgerman but trying to get into yours just gives me the ‘eggtimer’

  10. Thanks for the heads up, definitely worth keeping an eye on… mine are still there so far…

    Thanks!

  22. A poster on the Facebook pages forum noticed that many of the reported “down” pages include “intern” – as in international, or internet (like mine, http://www.facebook.com/internews). Seems true here too – that’s a trend that could mean something.

    My Facebook business page has gone missing. I can still open Facebook as an individual (Antony). But the business page “http://www.facebook.com/pages/Oznaturallife/210428642313618″ has gone, including all the updates since March 2011 (over 30 updates). I paid to advertise my page in Facebook just in June! I’ve reported bug to Facebook but they are not answering at all!

    My facebook business page has gone missing, I went on facebook tonight and it is gone I was wondering what was going on. I see other people are having the same problem. I hope it gets fixed and I can get my page back.

  28. My Business Page has been gone for 48 hours now. Now a twist; I can’t see it using Safari on my Mac or with InternetExplorer on my PC but my partner can see it on his Samsung tablet (not cached) using IE. Any ideas?

  33. My page just has disappeared 5 hours ago:
    http://Www.facebook.com/iranylondonblog.hu

    I wrote to Facebook but I don’t think they will respond. What was the longest time your page has gone? Pls let me know. I hope it is a temp error…

  34. Just to let you know I had this problem and I solved it by sending a private message from my personal account to my business/page and afterward it re-appeared. Try it, hope it works for you too.

  35. For me, right now I can’t see the contents of my facebook page but if I log out, I can see them. I do not know what is wrong but I want to solve this.
