Well I have a facebook page for my photography, and I log on tonight to be greeted by a memo at the top of the page that due to the fact that it hasn't been updated to support secure browsing, the photo app will no longer be supported as of November 7th. This effectively KILLS my page. Am I the only one that thinks facebook dropping one of the most basic elements of its setup for pages is completely and utterly rediculouse? I'll still have my flikr and profile but this has been a major way of reaching people for me.
Thanks facebook

I don't see anything about this anywhere. Mine doesn't say anything.

This is what happens when you build your web presence in someone else's sandbox. Why not have your own domain and site that you can control?

Seems like you need to work on some settings/preferences. Contact Facebook and see if this is so...before Nov 7th.


just a few of my thoughts...

I do not get that message. Maybe it is because your FB account has not selected "secured browsing enabled" from your account-security settings. Them ending photos on pages would kill their site. At one time 100,000,000 photos were being uploaded by users every day.

appears to be fine now, I was angry when I posted this. We all know how much we think when under the influence of photographers rage.
