Facebook Stuffs Up!

I wrote a post last week titled “How To Invite 1,000 Fans To Your Company Facebook Fan Page in Less Than 3 Minutes” after discovering that you could appear to import email addresses and invite them to “Fan” your company Facebook page. Facebook Stuffs Up

It appears after further testing both by myself and my readers that it doesn’t work. (see the comments below)

Jason “We have yet to recieve either a notification from Facebook about the invite, or an email invite directly to the 3 inboxes.

Teddy Lyngaas “The feature has now been removed by Facebook with no explanation along with the original post from the Facebook Page that detailed how to do it. Originally housed here.

Brad Marcus “Just tried it. I’ll let everyone know my responses. The functionality does still exist though

Matthew Ogborne “Hi Brad, Jeff, Brad you;re right, we tried this and to date no notification has been received by any of the account emails we used.Shame. Matthew

The page shown below still exists but the page describing this feature as pointed out by Teddy has been removed for the moment.

So thanks to some of my readers followed by some more testing, Facebook gets a fail on this feature.

How To Invite Fans To Your Company Facebook Page Step 3

Is Facebook just trying to capture email for some evil plan. I don’t think so. So Facebook “Fix it or remove it”

    I wanted to import my facebook contacts to my yahoo mail and it appears that feature is no longer working. It goes through the process of importing then the end result is “0” contacts were imported.

    I did this exact thing last week after I finalized my new FB Welcome page. I was wondering why I didn’t get any responses!

    I wonder if there were just too many instances of people abusing this feature.
