WTF:  What the...Facebook

 


Meganauts and other fans of Dance Radio Post know we always try to be transparent and give it to you straight.  Facebook sucks...so here we are.

As we said before, Facebook easily wins the award for the richest company with the worst software.  When we tried to login to our Facebook account in October 2020—the first time from a desktop computer in seven months—we kept getting an error message.  After a week or so, we somehow landed on some Facebook business advertising plan page.  And we’re still having trouble accessing our account from a desktop in 2021.  Yes, we have tested this using computers outside of our office.

Since our region of California went into lockdown in March 2020, we’ve been logging in to Facebook from a smartphone, which presents a different set of issues.  For one thing we learned Facebook no longer supports Notes (we don’t recall the company sending out any notification about its demise).  So we’re forced to use Posts instead of Notes when we want to publish something on Facebook.  We've also had to switch between the mobile version and the desktop version of Facebook to get around other problems.  Facebook's mobile app may work better on a smartphone, but no one should have to download yet another mobile app for no good reason.  Facebook is not banking software.

The bottom line is we can’t post anything from a desktop and it’s unfeasible to publish anything more than a few lines using a smartphone.  So we have no choice but to create this page on our own site as a way to post items we used to publish on Facebook.  Check this page the same way you used to visit our Facebook page.  The URL or page handle is easy to remember (for people familiar with North American English anyway).  You’ll also find the link to this page on our home page.  See future notes below.

Breaking News [May 2022]

According to Inside Radio and other sources, a dance station could be returning to the San Francisco Bay Area airwaves around May 7.  We'll believe it when we hear it.  Even if it turns out to be true, it might be just a temporary stint until a buyer is found.  Someone registered 927purefm.com in April.  If nothing happens by Memorial Day weekend....

Win Some, Lose Some [December 2021]

In case you missed it, these two things happened during 2020 lockdown.  KPBA-HD2 Austin, Texas ("Mega") stopped playing dance music after 11 years, and ElectricFM came back on-line.

The January issue of Mega6 is out.  Enjoy.

Will They or Won’t They? [September 2021]

As dance clubs around the country begin to reopen gradually, Billboard will probably resume its club chart in the next few months if not weeks.  Will they heed our advice and fix it at last?  Don’t bet on it.

Avicii Celebrated by Google (?!) [September 2021]

Google displayed an Avicii Google Doodle to celebrate his 32nd birthday in about 45 countries.  If you clicked on it, you would've landed on a short YouTube video.

Speak of the Devil [June 2021]

According to USA Today, Facebook is one of the mobile apps you should remove from your phone.

Free at Last [June 2021]

It’s so liberating not having to deal with Facebook’s myriad software problems.  We didn’t get a chance to ask the burning question:  how are you guys doing out there?  Did you survive the last 15 months with your sanity intact?  We hope you and yours are doing fine.  At least Zoom didn’t catch you doing something in private.
