Some Facebook Pages are missing Reviews

Some Facebook Pages are missing Reviews

I keep hoping Facebook would just fix this problem and let me off the hook for having to blog about it, but after two weeks or so, it doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen.

It was a couple weeks ago when I noticed that all of the reviews had gone missing from my wife’s Facebook Page. As I recall, she had about 10 glowing reviews on her Page with an overall 4.9 star rating. When I’d try to visit the dedicated sub-page for Reviews, Facebook would show this “content isn’t available” message:

Not only had the reviews gone missing, but the Reviews tab disappeared from her Page’s navigation and there was no option in Settings to return that tab.

There’s never a good time for this kind of thing to happen, but in our case the reviews disappeared right as we were ready to start a steady campaign to increase her review profile across the web. She’s using a new customer management platform and we’d created a handful of stock emails that would be sent out to past clients to invite them to leave..

Who Says You Can’t Do Lead Gen On Facebook Messenger?

My wife woke up a couple mornings ago and found this email notice alerting her to a new message waiting for her in Messenger. I’ve blocked the name for privacy reasons … suffice to say it’s a complete stranger.

Best of all, it’s a legit lead. My wife’s made an appointment to visit this person and inspect the home as part of the initial listing/pricing process.

I hope we’ll learn how and what prompted the connection on Messenger. I suspect it’s traceable back to the Facebook advertising we do, which is mainly a case of turning her weekly Ask the Realtor videos (which discuss all things related to Tri-Cities real estate) into video News Feed ads. They tend to get seen by a few thousand people each week.
