Facebook Removes Suggest Page To Friends Feature

One of the more useful features of Facebook is a simple tool that users can use to suggest pages to their friends. As of the past few days the feature stopped working for administrators and is no longer visible to fans of the page.
Suggest To Friends Gone


The most likely reason for this change was that page administrators were typically the only people likely to use the tool. This also prevents page administrators from encouraging fans to share their page with others. While the tool is currently broken for admins, I have a feeling it will be resolved in the near future. There’s also a chance that Facebook will come up with alternative solutions for easily sharing your favorite pages. Ultimately I’m not sure how large of an impact this will have on page growth but it’s definitely something that admins won’t be happy about.
Did you ever use the “Suggest To Friends” feature when you visited another page? How about for Pages you administer yourself?
Update
One thing that may not have been clear: admins can still access the feature, however fans of a page cannot.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
