Breaking news : No more “-Via Hootsuite” or “-Via Buffer” on feed stories

Co-founder & CEO at Wisemetrics - Stephane is a serial entrepreneur who has been launching internet-related companies since 2001, after a fruitful experience at IBM as web marketing manager. His latest venture was a pioneering social media agency, sold in 2006, which advised Fortune 100 companies.

Facebook has just announced they’ll now automatically remove the third-party attribution from feed stories.

Previously when a Page used a third party to post a story (for example, Hootsuite), the story would say “-via Hootsuite”.

They’re removing that attribution from feed stories (both paid and organic) from Pages, starting today. Attribution will still show up on user stories.

This will happen automatically for posts made to Pages by apps. There is nothing you’ll need to do. Also, there will be no way to opt-out.

The functionality is not live yet but will tomorrow.

    I sure wish this was the reality. I don’t like having via Hootsuite on my posts, and don’t think it should have to be there.

    Interesting… as of today 4/25/2013 I still don’t have the updated timeline AND my posts still say “via hootsuite.” 🙁

    Howdy, I do believe your website could possibly be having internet browser compatibility
    issues. Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, if
    opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, wonderful website!
