You need to elaborate a little bit beyond simply stating "I can't post on my business page". What exactly is happening? Missing text field, missing "Share" button, are you typing and it's simply not showing up, etc.....?

Ok. Thanks. I'm a technological idiot. :-) I think it has to do with facebook's recent update. My business page is suddenly lacking the spot to type in "status." If I go to the left side, I find a "share" button. When I hit that, I get a spot to type my status, but when I hit the button to post the status I just wrote, I never see those words again. Where are they being posted? Also, it suddenly doesn't show my selected photo if I comment on an old posting. It just shows the generic head and shoulders shot. Thank you!

Almost sounds like some sort of glitch or virus, but I'm actually not familiar with how business pages are set up, so I'm not sure if I can help too much. Have you checked your settings to see if anything has been changed/added since the update? I found this article about the recent changes. Maybe it will help you? Are you seeing posts from other people that come to your page? What's the URL to your business page, and maybe we can have a look to see if your status updates are viewable.

For weird, sudden issues confined to a page or a site, I usually try to access the same thing from a different browser to see if that fixes the problem.

Glitch maybe, can't say I've ever seen a virus that prevents you from updating your facebook page

Facebook sent me an email saying that they couldn't help me. Nice. I have tried and researched everything. You mentioned me giving you my URL... I'm not sure what that is, but If it can identify my business to City-Data users, I just can't. I have my own virus right now. I've been in bed for two days. No telling what a virus can do. Thanks, and keep posting any ideas! -cityflair

Sorry, NHDave....I actually deleted my comment while you were in the middle of posting this. Yes, you're right. Honestly, I'm not a tech genius to know whether or not the problem she's having is due to a virus. I just thought maybe it was a possibility...?
