So I work in social media for a large advertising-centric company, and one of the things that I do is test integration with Facebook Pages. I run a simple test Facebook Page to try out different things on, and I recently started having issues with including any goo.gl URL in a post to the page:
If I have a simple link to XKCD, shortened with Goo.GL: http://goo.gl/b4UzX and shortened with Bitly: http://bit.ly/1pB1Uk, I get the following results when I try to post them onto the wall of the page:
Original XKCD link: posts and embeds just fine
Bitly link: posts and embeds just fine
Goo.gl link: always asks to solve a CAPTCHA
I’ve tried it with a bunch of other sites and some other URL shorteners and have had no issues. Is anyone else having this problem? Any other Google-related services that are being tampered with? It’s not blocking it, it just feels like harassment!
