    Facebook is blocking external links because the site has been rated badly on WOT. Who the F**K is WOT and why are they messing about? Is the any way you can bypass this.

    WOT = Web of Trust. They partnered with them to stop malware websites being shared on Facebook. Get a new domain and redirect it to your website or use a url shortener and you should be fine.

    It's annoying but hey, that's Facebook :)

    Facebook is definitely wayyyyyyy harder now. They used to take awhile to stop viral/scripts and apps now there on it within a few days. I think everyone's earnings are down now they put an end to Share too.
