It wont post my reviews on my Facebook wall??

  • Problem
  • Updated 7 months ago
I have written over 500 reviews and people depend on me for my movie reviews. I always write them and post on my facebook wall. Now with this new Flixster, I was able to link my account and everything seems fine but when I wrote my latest review and hit Post, it did not post it on my wall. I have tried lots of diff options and it will not post....what do I do??

I'm having the same problem as everyone else. Writing reviews, adding ratings, clicking the box for it to appear on facebook and nothing. Not a sausage.

My friends love my reviews and they have been wondering if I've given up. I go to loads of advance screenings and usually write the reviews minutes after seeing the film but it seems pointless if no one can read them.

Get your act together, Flixster or I'll be going elsewhere.

I hate this new Flixster. Reviews don't post on your Facebook wall and now people can't even comment on your reviews. They got rid of every social aspect of their site. What a bummer.

Flixster's business model isn't inherently social which explains why they obviously couldn't care less.

Still no luck posting flixter reviews on facebook. Working for anybody else?

Not sure even how to give feedback to flixter about this, they do not respond to emails that is clear enough.

I'm getting really frustrated but this. I've checked all my settings on both Flixter and Facebook and can't see anything wrong with them. I'm checking the box on the review panel to share with Facebook and it still doesn't work.
Please sort this out!

Are You guys using Flixter on Facebook or smartphone app or...? Because, You can go to RottenTomatoes.com and post your reviews there and it will work just fine as long as You set Social to ON. I don't know the exact connection between flixter and Rotten Tomatoes, but, that's the same database, and reviews? :-/

Thanks Velimir for the tip! I went to Rotten Tomatoes and it worked from there! :)

I imagine that we are all having problems with the "built-in" Facebook interface. At least that's my issue. And as far as I can tell, Rotten Tomatoes isn't "inside" the Facebook framework... But you're right that the database seems to be the same...

Using Flixter on Facebook.

Good tip on RottenTomatoes Velmir Saban, managed to get review posted to Facebook through that. Thanks! Only difference with posting via rottentomatoes versus flixter seem to be that RottenTomatoes post is missing the "See more" choice on facebook post. This "show more" choice allows people to read the whole review without accessing other sites. Not a deal breaker exactly, but inconvenience still.

Would like to see Flixter fix its facebook posting, but at least now I have an workaround via rottentomatoes.

Yeah, I know that "see more" problem and I emailed the engineer about that when I discussed the posting problem with him:

"Just one suggestion. I don't know the limitations of the system but it would be great if reviews posted on fb timeline showed more lines of text, and maybe "show more" at the end of the visible section. The way it is now is great, but there is no easy way for my friends to read the rest of the review on timeline, other than clicking on movie name, adding me on Rotten Tomatoes, and then viewing friends ratings. "show more" or "read the rest" on fb timeline post would be ideal for feature to be complete and perfect!"

His response:

"Thank you for the input! I'll make sure to pass it along to the people in charge of making those kinds of decisions. This version of the integration is still in its early stages (which is why the toggle button wasn't working quite so well initially), so we're still in the process of figuring out how to improve it, but thank you for your thoughts."

So they are working on it, that "see more" detail is the only thing that is missing.

It's not even working via rottentomatoes for me... Social is on, but there isn't even a "post" button. I can click on "edit" but that's it. Hmmm...

Flixster, is the option to post our reviews and ratings on Facebook now discontinued or will it be fixed?
Could you please get back to us on this?

I don't think you or any of the others asking Flixster questions on here should expect a reply. From the top of this page: "Flixster monitors but is not active in this community." In other words, we're on our own.

Yeah,It Sucks that Facebook & Flixster does'nt have a Phone Number to Talk to Anykind of Technition & I Know The Sites are Free of Service but Flixster did,nt Post Anything on Anyones Emails,Wall or Timeline about The Changes about The Film Rating System.I've been giving Film Reviews since 2009 to 2012 on Facebook but when I was a MySpace Member they were always On Top of Everything in The Mid 2000's on Fixing Things or Changes.Because The Last Time I Reviewed a Film in March of 2012,Things were Always going Perfect on Flixster plus I Also Think that Ultraviolet Streaming is The Biggest Joke & Theres Tons of Problems on That App plus it's a Million Dollar Embarassment for Flixster & for some Major Hollywood Studio's that are Involved with that Project.

Everyone,

go through Rotten Tomatoes (as Velimir suggested above in his comments). I don't know how Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes are connected but they seem to work off the same database.
