Friday Digital Roundup
The Friday Digital Roundup is a witty take on the weird world of the internet. With fun stories from around the globe, it’s the only email newsletter you’ll actually read and enjoy!
We do love writing it, but clearly not as much as people like receiving it - just look at the response we got when a technical hitch meant it wasn’t sent out on time!
Coffee and the FDR is how I start my Friday.
Do not engage until I have devoured both
When it comes to the end of the week, there is no better way to start a Friday than with a run around the internet with Todd and Jo in the FDR. Just don't let them know I do it from the loo!
My inbox is full of rubbish newsletters that Im constantly deleting😬 My VIP inbox is for 1 thing only- THE DIGITAL ROUNDUP🤠I dont read a Newspaper or the news online, I just wait for Fridays, when this lands in my inbox- then I know ‘The weekend has landed’🤗
Why Can’t I Share My Business Page On Facebook (Solved)
We manage social media accounts for companies and it’s just come to my attention that Facebook Pages are sometimes not able to share other Page’s posts.
So if you see a cool update from another business you’re now unable to share it to your audience for some business to business kudos.
Looking at the forums it’s a massive problem and something Facebook will be looking into. But until then, here’s a cool workaround to keep you sharing posts and helping each other out on Facebook.
Why can’t I Share my Business Page on Facebook (Solved)
Here’s how sharing a Facebook Page post should work
- Click share on the page post
- Click on ‘Share on a Page you manage’
- And you’re good to go with a new post!
Not working? Here’s a simple workaround until Facebook fix it
To share the post of the Page go to the actual post by clicking on the date or time that it was posted (this ensures that you have the exact URL of the post).
Then copy the URL from your browser (Select all and copy to your clipboard cmd + A cmd + C on a Mac or simply highlight all the text and right-click and paste).
Then click on your home or logo from the top bar and start a new status update.
Paste your URL into the new status. Wait for the image of the post to upload and then delete the messy URL (the post will still link).
Now write a short intro or whatever you were going to post in front of it so that your audience understands the share. Make sure you also tag the Page by typing @ and then the page name, so that they know you shared it.
And voila! You’ve shared the post as a status update and the Page owner will still know that you’ve shared it too.
