Is Facebook blocking journalists from posting?

15 May

The Huffington Post’s Craig Kanalley tweeted frustrations Wednesday that Facebook might be restricting his posting ability for something he didn’t even do.

Newsweek social media editor Brian Ries also lost access.

Kanalley thought it was because of something on a Facebook page for which he is an admin, but did not post.

Ries’s was later reinstated.

Anyone else having trouble posting to Facebook?

      Hi, Molly, sorry I’m just seeing this so longer after your comment. Thanks for stopping by.

      What was particularly interesting about this post is that the people I cited are all reputable and have contacts at Facebook, so it was a real surprise. It looks like it was a one-time blip on the radar, though.

      Hope your journalistic pursuits are going well. Appreciate you reading.
