"The collective energy generated from the feelings, thoughts, and attitudes of the almost six billion people on this planet creates an atmosphere or 'consciousness climate.' Surrounding us like the air we breathe, this consciousness climate affects us most strongly on energetic and emotional levels."
*Doc Childre and Howard Martin
This was the quote that inspired me to get my ass in gear and promote our family business by setting up a Facebook Business Page.
I set up the page in November 2010. Adding all the info and a couple of photo’s. Then came the most exciting part, sending out requests to friends to Like my page. This would mean people would be aware of the business and start talking about it. They would then be able to advertise for me by sending their friends requests to Like the page. All of this free advertising is very good for the business.
So fast forward to January 2011. At this point my page has four Likes in total. I thought I had done something wrong. I then learned that it’s a bug and that it should be fixed by February.
They rolled out the upgrade to Facebook Pages in about January or February if I remember correctly. Anyway as soon as the upgrade was rolled out I automatically assumed that the bug had been fixed. I then did the whole sending out requests procedure again. Waited about two weeks to start asking people if they had received my requests. The answer was a unanimous NO.
This makes my blood boil! I did some serious research last night and found that this problem has been a known bug since October 2010 and to date has still not been fixed.
With tears in my eyes I ask, what on earth is the point of having a Facebook Business Page when people cant even get invites to Like the Page in the first place. I mean seriously is this their way of forcing users to take out paid adds?
Upset... Frustrated.... and just.... AAARGGGH!
