Why I Might Not Be Able to See Your Facebook Page

I discovered this past week why I wasn’t able to see certain Facebook fan pages when my friends in the US could. It wasn’t that the page didn’t exist or that there was an error with the page, instead it was something pretty simple. The page owner had their settings restricted so that only people in the USA could view their page. I’m in Canada so I could not see these pages at all. When I click on the link, I would be redirected to my Facebook newsfeed.

Maybe the page owners don’t realize that only US folks can see their pages or maybe they only want USA fans. I really don’t know.

For example, here’s the message I get when trying to view a Facebook page in a Rafflecopter form. I wouldn’t be able to do this entry.

To check to see if you are Canada-friendly, go to your Manage Permissions on your page. Check to see if you have Country Restrictions. The people that I talked to who did have their page restricted to US only never even realized it!

We are nice people here in Canada so don’t forget about us! We like to enter giveaways too and are active on Facebook!
