Facebook Debacle


Greetings friends from a woman with a Facebook debacle, and I just knew in my heart it was going to be one.
I read the information on switching from a personal account to a page, I hesitated, and then I hit that one tiny key that took me from the point of no return and here I sit.



Wishing I was here, looking over the cool, pristine waters of Lake Tahoe, instead of hunching over my laptop, willing the computer to make my Facebook page have a live feed.



I was ready to take my blog, and my Facebook page and soar through the cloud as high as I could in the sky, just like these magnificent Thunderbirds.




But instead, here I sit in a puff of smoke and feeling very low.
So, this is a 911 call to all of you-
I am in the dark now...
What is going on, is my account frozen, where are my contacts, my feed, my people??

Okay Facebook-I have emailed you, cried to you and begged you to help me-
provide me with a resource to rectify this issue-please!

In appreciation of your time and effort, I am giving away a 25 dollar gift card to TJ maxx!

Thank you much!
xoxo

  1. I wish I had the magic answer for you, Jemma. I recently added a page but kept my personal account. Even that was a little touch-and-go, but I managed to get a simple page put together. My page doesn't show anything in the news feed at all...maybe because I have "likes" but not "friends" on there? But people can comment, etc on my page just as they do on my personal account. I hope the smoke clears for you soon!

  2. Thanks Julie, I may have crossed over when I shouldn't have. I should have done the same thing as you-because at this rate not having a feed leaves me totally unconnected.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yes I too started a page but have my personal profile too. Go and see if you can reopen your page.

  4. Well, I'm sure someone here will be of help. You know I know next to nothing about Facebook. Of course, mine could go down in flames and I wouldn't be all that upset. I just don't like FB. Now if Pinterest went down, I'd be in a total dither!

    1. Brenda,
      Much support here for me, but not many clear cut answers.
      Oh yes, I do know that no one had better mess with your Pinterest!

  5. I am so sorry Jemma but I have no advice either. I have just about abandoned Facebook except to check for pictures on friends once in a while. I am just about all the way with Instagram and my blog. I hope you get it figured out....

  7. Oh, bless your heart, Jemma! I have no clues for you. I am always just one tiny click away from disaster in the "Social Media" world. I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

  8. Sorry I can't be of any help - I don't have a "business" page - just my personal account! Have you tried Googling your problem?

    1. Melanie,
      I have tried everything and even received an automated reply that I apparently had a personal account. That really helped me alot!

    1. Well, apparently there are many people who are on not on FB much anymore.
      I was using it to catch up with friends and connect with other bloggers-I think I sort of muddled up the entire mess!

    1. Thanks Sheri-I am sure I will find an answer somehow. It may not be the one I like-
      Yep, Tahoe is amazing!

  11. Jemma????? First of all, I am not a FB fan. I only opened up an account a few years ago to promote my art, but I am not fluent in FB at all. So, did you lose your contacts on FB? And your blog too? I hope you can find the answer to your problem dear friend. Isn't it frustrating that you can never get A PERSON to help with such matters? Thinking of you dear one. Anita

    1. Well Anita Dear,
      I am not FB fan either except for connecting with a few friends and other bloggers.
      I was enjoying that aspect of it-oh well. If it doesn't work out, it doesn't. I do know FB is not easy to communicate with.

  12. Oh, no! I certainly wish I knew how to help. I don't want a Face Book page for my blog. I don't want 'all' my friends reading about my life! ;) Hope someone can help.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  13. I hope someone is able to help you, Jemma. I'm at my wit's end just trying to figure out what I need to do with using PicMonkey as it won't let me load pictures and I've updated flash player and don't know what else to try. Oh, these tech problems.

    Till you soar again,
    Dewena

      Beasts, that is what these technology applications are. I am sorry that you are having a time with PicMonkey, and I wish that I could assist you.

    1. Thanks Eileen, FB, can be persnickety-keeping fingers crossed.

      We spent one day in Tahoe, while helping out with Avery and Wyatt and we were overwhelmed with the beauty!

  15. I made a page once so that I could join a quilting group with my blog name / identity but when I went to join it just used my regular name / account. I think that it's based on name and email / no clue how to separate the two...in the end I didn't bother about it much so I have this empty page on FB with my blog name but any groups I join are with my personal account.

  16. Hope you found your answer and all is okay - I am not an expert facebooker~

  17. I hate Facebook....I'm so sorry you are having issues and do wish I could be of help. I've always had a separate page and never converted a personal page to a "business" page. Hope they get back to you soon! Love and hugs my sweet friend...I hate you are having to deal with this frustration!

  18. So Sorry I am of NO help with fb Jemma, I closed my account some time ago. Not a fan and It was just a time drain for me and I have many other sites to manage so something had to go and fb was it. I am sure someone here can help and you will be back up and running fine. Hope your issues are resolved promptly!!
    Hugs, cm

  19. Sorry Jemma. That is frustrating., I don't have a business page. I have my personal page, along with lifeandlinda page. When you mentioned business, that is not my expertise. I see you got your Facebook back with you sharing those cute jean muffin tops. Did you just want another page for AtHomewithJemma? xo

  20. Jemma...my sympathies it's awful when a glitch happens and you can't figure it out. .Have you posted in some of the blogging groups on FB? Usually the bloggersthat are part of those groups have extensive knowledge about social media problems. And if one group doesn't know, maybe another will...let me know if you need some group names.
