FACEBOOK TIP: DISABLE POSTS FROM OTHER PEOPLE ON THE PAGE
We recently received a notification from Facebook saying someone posted on our Facebook Page. When we checked what the post was about, we quickly had to remove it. The post was in another language and the image posted could have been offensive to some of our Facebook followers, so we had to immediately delete this before our followers viewed it. Because of this experience, we needed to find a way to disable people from posting on our Facebook page as it would have also displayed on our Social Wall. By default, when you create a Facebook Page, you allow any visitor to post anything on your Facebook page. So be careful and we urge you to check your settings and disable this if you don’t want random people posting on your page. To do this, follow these simple steps:
- Login to your Facebook account and go to your Facebook Page
- Click on Settings on the right hand side
- On the General tab, click on the “Visitor Posts” edit link
- Click on “Visitor Posts and select Disable Posts by other people on the Page”
Our recommendation is to always have this disabled, that way you also have more control of what is also being displayed on your Social Wall. If you do want visitors to post on your Facebook page then at least make sure you have the setting “Review posts by other people before they are published on the page” selected, so at least you can approve the posts before they are published.
