Light-bulbNot snagging anything? No posts showing on your feeds?

[Update Aug 28 noon PDT]: please see the sticky reply below. It's likely a Facebook bug]

We've been getting a small increase in number of users with Snag Bar issues. 

Looking at the debug output members have sent, it seems like they do not see any FarmVille bonus posts (not photo posts) on their feed or via GU! feed checker either.

[rest of initial post deleted... to prevent confusion from later findings]

Here's what we know Aug 29 2010:

  • We believe there's a bug in Facebook affecting querying of Facebook feeds. The bug has been reported and Facebook is responding to it.
  • This bug only happens for some users, which is why some users see the problem, others don't
  • This bug affects all Facebook apps (e.g. FarmVille.com too). It is not specific to GU!
  • This is a Facebook server problem, it is not browser-specific
  • As this is a Facebook problem, we need Facebook to fix it. Vote up the bug and sit tight.
  • When voting up the bug, it may be helpful to report your Facebook ID (found by clicking "profile" on the top right of the page). This is, of course, optional, but it could help Facebook figure out why this is affecting only your accounts and not others.
Update Sep 1 2010:
Facebook seems to have fixed this. Most folks are reporting things as normal now.

Folks, I've been contacted by Facebook to say they're working on the problem and please do not vote up or comment on the bug anymore. Thanks for your cooperation.

Snag bar still not working....... please help

Picture?type=square

I'm a little late in reporting this because I have not used fb or gu in awhile. I downloaded the new FB toolbar & even uninstalled the GU bar & tried reinstalling it again because it was not working. I've noticed in FV the only tabs I am getting are "friend activity"(where I can send them gifts based on their accomplishments & "my activity" but nowhere I can even manually try to get rewards for their hard work(only my own). I'm only posting this because it is the beginning of NOV & the last report on this was at the end of August. Anything new?
