[resolved] Posting to Wrong Facebook page (10 posts)

    Today Jetpack started posting my new articles to my personal facebook page instead of my website's facebook page. I looked in the sharing configuration and it is still pointing to my page, but it is not posting there. It seems to be doing this on all of my wordpress sites. I have totally removed the app from facebook and killed the connection in the sharing settings on my sites and reconnected everything to no avail.

    I haven't applied any updates to anything in the last few days... Any ideas?

    So it seems one page started magically working correctly, but the other isn't...

    And they all seemed to be fixed now, must have been some sort of blip...

    I experienced the same issue today. I removed my Page's account from Jetpack and tried to re-add it, but now Jetpack is only adding my personal account.

    Yesterday, we had an issue with Publicize, where posts were going to personal profiles rather than pages. The issue has since been fixed, as John pointed out.

    @evanw Could you try to reset your Publicize connection as explained here:

    @jeherve Unfortunately I am still not able to re-add my Page in the Sharing settings, even after following the reconnection instructions. After removing the connection in WordPress, removing the permissions on Facebook, then re-adding the connection in WordPress, I am never prompted to change sharing settings to a different Page. Only my personal profile is shown in the Sharing Settings page.

    On a related note, it would be really great if WordPress's requested Facebook permissions could be limited solely to a Page rather than my entire personal profile. Perhaps this isn't possible, but if it was, it would remove the risk of accidentally posting content intended to Pages to my personal account.

    Please let me know if you have any additional suggestions, or need any information from me.

    Could you send screenshots of your sharing settings to support@jetpack.me , so we can have a closer look at the problem?

    We too would like to add that feature. Since Facebook doesn't offer a way to connect to "Business" Pages (pages without a Facebook profile attached to theme), it's a bit complicated at the moment. But we're working on it.

    I have the same exact problem- my personal FB page shows up, then it says "Publicize to my Facebook Page:" and then there is nothing under it. I have a screen shot but don't know how to post it. Why is my facebook PAGE not showing up as a choice?

    You also need to include a link to your site.
