Facebook Pages Filtering Spam
Last month Facebook began testing filtering spam comments posted onto the walls of pages. Today I noticed the announcement message at the top of my pages, and checked the new spam button. The spam filter isn't seen by people who like your page, only by the admin. I assume there is, or will be, a way to approve message that are caught by Facebook's spam filter that aren't actually spam, but I don't see how to do it off the bat. Coincidentally, at the same time I checked the spam filter I just the "just others" filter and noticed a spam comment on the wall. So, the spam filter seems to still need some work. The screen grab is from the Garden Bloggers Facebook page. Do you have a Facebook page for your garden blog? See how to create a Facebook page for your blog.
Update: The way to move a post on your wall from the spam filter is by clicking on the "X" in the upper-right corner of the comment and clicking the option to unmark it as spam.
