LaoisToday and other sites prevented from posting on Facebook

LaoisToday woke up this morning to find that we were not able to post articles from our website onto our Facebook page, and that older articles were being deleted.

It appears this isn’t an isolated incident, as many other online news sites and Facebook users were reporting the same issue today.

Facebook spam filter breaks and removes posts

Journalist and technical consultant Nigel Todman set out to try discover the cause of this apparent bug on Facebook posts.

In the article, Todman explains: “In the last few hours Facebooks Spam detection system appears to have completely broken. I first noticed it with my own posts … and then a few more friends … and then several more.”

In an effort to try and get our stories out, we are having to post good old fashioned statuses and link the articles beneath them.

Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon, and normal service will resume.
