|Hi, whatchu doin?|
I am not a great big Facebook user (in my non-blogging life); therefore, I reluctantly created a fan page for this blog, after weeks of rebellion against all the social media experts who insisted that all "successful" blogs must have one.
Fast forward a year and I still rarely use my personal Facebook page, but have come to rely on (and even <gasp> enjoy) my fan page for connecting with many wonderful blog readers.
And that is why, when it (my fan page) suddenly left me this weekend (for a better blogger perhaps?) - without so much as a note or an envelope stuffed full of cash, I lost my ever-loving mind. Really.
Shortness of breath.
Hysterical googling of the words "my facebook page disappeared."
Twitter begging of @Facebook to "please put my page back, lest I might die." (except I left out the dying part)
Strongly worded pleas to the mysterious bureau known as Facebook Help.
I did all of that just this morning!
|Shut the front door! She did what?!|
Then at precisely 1:50 p.m. my time today (as I peeked at the clock through a squinted eye), it slowly loaded. My wayward little fan page.
And I felt a little nauseated from the adrenaline release.
So tell me: If I can find a bright side to a day of scrubbing dog poop off interior surfaces and my dog's butt, ill-fitting clothes and burning my dinner to a block of ash, but can't get it together for temporary Facebook maintenance*, do you think I might be in deep doo doo?
What about you? How would you react if your Facebook (or any other well-used social media) page suddenly disappeared?
|I like to roll in deer pee. Do you?|
*I'm assuming that my page was down due to temporary maintenance (vs. a glitch, hack, etc.). Whatever the case, I'm so relieved it's back! ;-)
P.S. If you're a Facebook fan and it goes missing again, please check the blog (or look at my Twitter feed) for updates!
