    Hi guys,

    looks like Facebook changed the way they check links extremly - which threatens to put me out of business (at least for Facebook). In the past it was pretty easy, to post links on Facebook, which they blocked. You just used a fresh, unblocked domain with an Iframe inside and did load the link you wnated to post into that IFrame - quite easy. To make it harder for them, you also were able to use some Url-shorteners with different redirection methods (php, java....) - basic cloaking stuff. But since Friday all this seems not to work anymore - every link and every method I try to post (Blogspot, own redirection script) gets blocked instantly. Do you guys have by any chance any solution to this? I am willing to spend money for tools which might help (as someone using almost 1000 proxys and buying 200 domains every month I know its worth it...). Maybe I am just not seeing something or maybe I am thinking to difficult - but any help would be highly apreciated.

    Wow, it seems everyone is experiencing this issue.

    Even when i used apps, they might post on groups, but absolutely, no link. Which is basically, useless.

    Yes this is exactly what we experienced. We use for every single Facebook Profile an own IP, a own domain we post - so we are extra extra extra carefull. On that domain is nothing than an Iframe and the "real" landing is loading into that iframe - that worked perfect for us. Not anymore....Facebook looks through it (and yes, we tested the "hardcore" way and changed the link with java redirect 5 times (5 java redirections) b4 we posted it - so they check at least 5 links deep....which seems like an enourmeous waste of CPU power...but Facebook seems to mean it very very very serious to stop spam now and 4ever...)
