Facebook has lots going for it but folk need to be aware.

Gwen,

I have followed Craig's link and as a member of Facebook I can see the NKG Facebook Page as well as all the other Facebook pages.

If I log out of Facebook it sometimes still allows me to view the content on the NKG Facebook Page. Other times it just blanks out the content and insists that I log-in or join.

So I am guessing that Facebook lets you look sometimes to encourage you to join or login then when it thinks you have had enough looks, it blanks it out to make you log-in or join.

I am guessing here. Other folk who are members and don't persistently test the link in a logged out state might not see what I have been seeing.

Regards

Unfortunately you cannot view a Facebook group page without logging on to Facebook.

I might have a cunning plan though. Give me some time to have a play

I've added a new page on the website showing the feed from the Facebook Page. At the moment it only shows text and only the original post. It needs to show comments to be really useful but it's a start and so far I can't find a free way of doing it.

See - http://www.nkg.org.uk/facebook-feed

Is this something that would be useful to non-Facebook people?

Hi Peter,

I tried following the links on that page to find:

Sorry, this content isn't available at the moment
The link you followed may have expired, or the Page may only be visible to an audience that you aren't in.


As I am a member on Facebook I assumed that they would take me to the relevant info. So I don't know if this operation was what you intended?

Thanks for trying Les.

It is supposed to look like this - or at least that's what I'm getting across browsers when either logged in and out of facebook. A mystery.

Hi Peter,

I see that OK.

What I was referring to was clicking on an entry and following that link. Probably not what you were aiming for?

OK I see what you mean now Len. No it's really only for non-FB users although I'm surprised clicking things doesn't work. I'm not going to spend too much time on all this especially as I'm giving up looking after the website in the next 12 months ......or earlier if someone puts their hand up. I don't want to add further complicated customisations which adds to the burden.
