I went to like a business today and found the button has gone.


Is this a new change they have suprised or is there something more sinister like ive hit some limit or restriction?


Before I go down the hell that is asking facebook something want to see if anyone else has had this change.

I've stopped following/liking things on FB - they change things so often. I've even found my account is following things I have absolutely no interest in, such as big rigs and the like.

Is it possible they've set their business page up as a personal profile by mistake?


If that were the case, you'd probably see an "Add Friend" button though.

The more you like, the more you click the more targeted ads and 'you may also like...' and 'Suggested for you' spam


If you have a  heap, or did a lot in a short time you may have triggered the Indian call centre like farm filter

I logged in with my other account that I use to manage facebook pages and it has the option to like other pages so its just my account it seems. Made a support thing on facebook and expect it will be 2 weeks to get a non answer from them linking to a page telling me how to like a page or something.




I get like buttons on - but if I click onto any of the suggestions then there is no like button on the page itself. I suspect its just broken. Even tried it in edge to see if it was chrome being a pain. Same thing.
