UPDATE: Are You Having Facebook Pages Problems? This May Be Why

December 6, 2010

UPDATE 2: I regained access to my News Feed status updates and Facebook Pages as of about 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

UPDATE: I got some help on this from Javier Sandoval, one of my Twitter friends. He said the issues I’m having could be related to an SSL certificate error on Facebook’s end:

Based on Javier’s observations and the fact that I’ve now observed the same issues on two separate computers (on two separate networks), I’m confident this is a Facebook problem. What’s odd is that I haven’t heard anything from the major tech blogs (Mashable, RWW, etc.). I’m going to send them this post to see if I get any response.

Here’s my original post describing my issues:

I’m having a couple Facebook problems right now and am wondering if anyone else is having them, too:

  1. I can’t see the Walls of any Facebook Pages — including the ones I admin — when I’m logged in (I can see them fine when I’m logged out).
  2. I can’t post status updates from my News Feed.

I’ve tried logging in to Facebook in three different browsers (Chrome, Firefox 3.6 and Internet Explorer 9) and have gotten the same result. I would assume that it’s a localized problem (some sort of caching, CSS, etc. issue) except that I can see the Walls of the Pages just fine when I’m logged out of Facebook.

I’ve tried clearing out my cache, dumping my cookies, etc. and nothing has worked. I’m hoping someone has some suggestion or is at least having the same problem so I don’t have to sit here feeling like I’m taking crazy pills.

I “upgraded” to the new profile layout today, but I don’t know that it has anything to do with the problem I’m having.

I’d post from my phone, but as you can see from the second screenshot below, my posts are showing up as me and not as my Page (meaning that our 2,600 fans aren’t getting my updates in their News Feeds).

Here are a few screenshots — any help would be appreciated:
