How to stop your Facebook Page tab images from randomly changing

March 16, 2012

We’ve had numerous Woobox customers tell us that page tab images are randomly changing to another page’s custom tab image. This is happening without any interaction. After a tab image is set, sometimes when you go back to it later the image that appears is different.  We’ve tried to figure out what is causing this bug on Facebook’s end and how you might be able to fix it.  With think we have answers to both those questions.
Why are your tab images randomly changing?
Here is what we believe is happening:  There appears to be a limit of 10,000 tab images for a Facebook app.  When a tab image gets uploaded a number between 0 and 9999 gets assigned to the tab image …

Facebook: Like refresh issue will be fixed soon.

March 3, 2012

Great news for everyone waiting to see what will happen with the Like refresh issue on the new Timeline for Pages.  Facebook confirmed today that this is a bug and the fix will be in place soon.
