Facebook FAIL

When writing something I want to post on the three social sites I use, I write it in Twitter first (enforces a discipline) then copy it to Facebook and Google +. Here’s what I wrote (just a historical snippet from that great app On this day…):

Imagine my surprise, when I tried to post to Facebook, I received this rather rude message each time after two tries on an iPad and two on an iPhone:

OK, Facebook, now I’m really PO’d. I’ve spent time writing this and taking screen shots but I gave it one more shot. NOW you decide to post this perfectly innocent non-spammy, non-abusive historical note! What were you thinking, Facebook, or were you? Algorithms OTL? Well, thanks, thanks a lot, Facebook, for the half-hour I’ve just wasted.
