As many of you know, Chris has a Facebook page. You might also know that Facebook wrongly declared this blog as spam and won’t let me share my blog posts on the page. There is also no way to correct their mistake because it seems only computers work in the Facebook customer service department. Despite all that, the followers have swelled to 25 short of the 3000 follower milestone. If you don’t follow Chris on Facebook and would like to you please click on the link above.
The real milestone is my other blog, Just Fur Laughs. I never gained very many followers on that blog but the Just Fur Laughs Facebook page just passed 10,000 followers.
It makes me feel good that people actually like what I put out there. Now, if only I could make money on it.
same here… they even removed the link to my blog… and since instagram is a part of zuckerbergs imperium they removed the link to my blog there too…. sigh…
They made me remove the link to Instagram too.
Well congratulations…..I know I’m probably in a minority but I don’t keep track of followers – I’m just grateful anyone thinks Ted’s blog is worth visiting – period. Five or 50,000 – we love them. But seriously your number of followers is impressive and you have fun and entertaining content – THAT’s why you’re a success in spite of Facebook!! Yippeeee!
Thank you, Pam. WordPress keeps track of followers but people can follow through means other than WordPress so the number is a mystery. It doesn’t matter anyway because a lot of people follow in hopes I will follow back and don’t actually read the blog.
I’m not on FB or IG otherwise I would definitely follow Chris.
You are probably better off. I have to be on Facebook as part of my job but I am likeing it less and less.
happy milestones !!
I’m probably the only person on the planet to not be; or ever have been, on facebook …..
the good Lord Himself could ask if I wanted to join.. and I’d be like, dood, thanx, but no !! 😉
You are wiser than I. Facebook was a great way to keep in touch with family ten years ago or more but now it could crash and burn and people would probably be better off.
Congratulations on 10K Facebook followers! That’s a great milestone.
Congratulations! That is a lot of follwers.
Congrats on all those followers! Facebook is pretty bad these days, I’ll probably be leaving them soon.
Thanks and I agree. I use it for work but I have been using it much less personally lately because they have gone downhill.
So far, copying the link on WP and pasting it on Facebook has worked for me. I used to have an automatic link that somehow got broken. Attempts to restore it failed, so I took the copy-paste way to share my blog there. Facebook put me in a brief pause when I made the mistake of sharing a cartoon strip that went one day’s panel too far. Twitter banned me forever or until the sun dies and cremates the earth when I made the mistake of clicking on one name too many that I wanted to follow. Interestingly enough, when I started a new account on my smartphone instead of the banned laptop, they accepted me. I then chose not to get on it, my way of saying f.u.
It won’t let me copy and past a link to my blog. I bet if I was buying advertising it would probably look the other way and let me do it.
I copy and paste to Facebook from WP, using the permalink at the top of the post edit sheet. (I guess all formats have something like that on the edit page. I’ve only used two different formats in almost 13 years on WP.
Facebook thinks badcatchris.com is a spam website and won’t let me post it in any way.
Facebook has some really odd “standards”. I’m at a loss to even figure out one objectionable thing about your blog, even if you posted it daily. I wonder if you used a different computer or smartphone to post it or started a different account on a different computer or smartphone if you could fool the system. I did that on twitter and got through their nonsense. (Then I never posted anything – I don’t need “medium nazis” in my life.) You don’t have to respond to this or even try it, I’m just noting how I got around an account ban.
I don’t get it. I only a human was there to look at it they would see it’s not spam.
