when I type my facebook address it searches and puts me on everything but my own page. Is there a way to stop the search feature ? I know the address. I dont need it to search for me.

There is not at this time. This may be in how the Facebook page was set up. What is the Facebook address? I will see if I can figure it out for you.

Is your page set to be public? It doesn't seem to be. That may fix the issue.

Ok, I am looking. I know Facebook is a little odd in how you set up. Businesses are not supposed to be set up like a personal page. Businesses are supposed to be added as a page on a personal account, but I do not know if they are enforcing that right now. I'll see what I can find out.

I am having the same issue, my facebook is not searchable when it is set publicly I am unable to add a live news feed or events feed. Homestead has gone downhill since Intuit was taken out of the picture. I have a few other questions that I have had for over a month with no answers. No moreĀ  Live chat to a support rep. I think the customer service went with Intuit. Prove me wrong Homestead and answer our questions!

How is your Facebook set up? In order to be searchable it needs to be a business page. Facebook does not want businesses set up as a profile. You are supposed to set up a business as a special page within your personal profile. I am looking for a workaround, but apparently it is only searchable if it is a page, as opposed to a profile. The Facebook API apparently only looks for pages.
