As of this week, previously 'public' facebook pages seem to be behind a login wall. I can't check the menu for my local Indian takeaway, see which stalls are on the market this week, or get a clue about things happening in the community around me.

I can't find anyone talking about this online, and the only thing anyone - even local biz owners - seem to be able to say to me is *shrug*. What the fuck.


@rhiaro are you sure it is just as of this week? I've never had a facebook account and every time anyone ever sends me a facebook link it is broken by a login page. I thought it was always like this? "Walled garden", you know?

@thufie Might depend on how the page is set up. There were several public pages for local bizs that I could see fine until earlier this week.
