We are aware of the current issue for points for sharing articles on Facebook and Twitter and the tech team is working to resolve those issues.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

I think it's a tech issue between the two sites - I've only gotten a handfull of points for liking on facebook

Are you using Explorer or Firefox or Chrome ?

On Firefox I cannot spin or see videos.
Explorer ALWAYS makes me login AGAIN
to rate/save/get points for ANY RECIPE

But still
It is helping me SO MUCH !

I've been having interesting times regarding points with several areas to include the above and the Spark Search, etc., etc.

Guess that it does not matter that much in the big picture, but it can be a bit frustrating at times.

YES, I am STILL having trouble too.

But then I have a virus I cannot get
rid of. When I try to LIKE or post
my status on FB, get a blank, white
login screen for FB. It NEVER finishes.

So, I miss out on a few points.
Spark is still emoticon

It's doing it again - so far I have 2 points and have liked AND tweeted TWELVE articles so far. I won't even have access to the internet tomorrow and for I'm not sure how long - so I WILL get that point today if it takes FIFTY articles and I have to sign off ten times!!!!!! I find this the only really frustrating feature about SparkPeople.

It's hit and miss for me. I post at least 2 or 3 articles to my FB account daily and most of the time I get one point. I still post though - some of my FB friends appreciate the info.

I'm not getting points either now. As of two days ago it was working but now I can't get points for liking or posting my status to Facebook.

Tweets work way better than likes. Firefox is way better than Internet Explorer. It takes more tries than it should, every time, but I guess we're spreading the Spark! emoticon

It IS frustrating, though...

I don't get any Facebook Points either. Any more suggustions? Will all need the points. Every point adds up quite a bit in the long run. God Bless You and Have a Wonderful Week.

3/9/12 9:29 P

if i click on the Facebook "like" at the bottom of the page, i don't get the point for it, but if i click on the one at the top of the page, i get the point for it.

I'm sorry you are having trouble with that, but I haven't been able to replicate those issues. Something you may want to do is try removing and adding our app back to your facebook account. I don't know if that will help, but I have not had any problems with FB posting things that I "like" and I get my points for doing things like that. This is a link to FB's app help center for how to remove and add an app:
. Again, I don't know if doing that will help, but I would think that there is a possibility (kind of like resetting).

AGAIN - no matter what I do, or what browser I use, or what computer I'm on - I am NOT getting points for liking or tweeting. It takes 8 to 10 tries per point. I WISH someone would fix this, please. Is this NORMAL for everyone? emoticon

Today it took a combination of 17 "tweets" "likes" and closing and reopening two different web-browsers twice each to get my THREE points!!!!! No Matter what I do, Liking or Tweeting 3 times NEVER NEVER NEVER results in 3 points. Everyone who has posted here has issues with this. Can't something be done about it? It is just SOOOOOOOOOOO frustrating. I hate putting so many things that aren't relevant to me or my friends on facebook - I just click articles to open them to post it - after I actually READ and POST the three I care about, plus the Health article. Then I see I have received ZERO points for this - and click on things at random, don't read them, and just try to get my points. Today, SEVENTEEN emoticon

Yes, i have seen the same thing. I dislike Facebook as well. I also have the problem of not getting points for answering email. I really miss out on ;points in this category as I live in email.

Today, I read, liked and tweeted five articles - still had only 2 points. So I read, liked and tweeted FIVE more articles and STILL have not received the 3rd point. Now it's a matter of determination: I WILL get that point, no matter how many articles it takes. It just doesn't work right - ever. SO frustrating. (I know the points aren't worth anything, but I am SO close to the next level; they took away e-mail point possibilities, the wheels have been REALLY unfriendly lately - and I challenged MYSELF to always get the maximum available points.) I have learned a lot, communicated with so many woderful people, and actually reached my goal by doing this faithfully. I just get frustrated when something that is supposed to work simply DOESN'T! I have followed the suggestions of every Spark Coach who addressed this with suggestions. I guess over the six months I have been doing this, I have missed out on enough points to already BE at the next level. I actually HATE facebook, I don't even like to be associated with it because I think it is invasive, but I do it for the points. So it bothers me even more to have to like so many things - and still not get my itty bitty little reward point. emoticon

PS - I shut off my computer, restarted everything on FIREFOX, signed OUT of SparkPeople, signed in again, and FINALLY got that point! It took a total of 21 likes and tweets! (to get the 3 points) Aw, c'mon - everyone who has commented on this thread has the same problem!

I changed browsers from internet explorer to firefox. That didn't do it either. Now, I "like" and "tweet" everything, and usually wind up with three points from five articles liked and tweeted.

I've had the same problem. Can like all kinds of things and if I'm lucky, I might get one point. I just gave up on liking things.

I use Safari and struggle with these points too. I have found it sometimes works if you "like" it and then reload it and then click your points ... It's a pain but the only one I have with SP so I just deal with it.

What browser and version of browser are you using? Have you tried a different browser to see if that makes a difference for you?

I have posted this before. I tried waiting one minute, two minutes, five minutes before changing the page. I tried double=clicking, triple clicking, saving the article, going back and trying to post it again. Doesn't work. I just checked my facebook page...I "liked" FIVE articles to it today. I have ONE point. Actually, I hate facebook - I only do this for the points and really don't want to ever be able to be googled on facebook. I totally don't trust it. And now, it doesn't ever work like it should with SparkPeople. Very nice, helpful Sparkers tried to tell me before how to get these to register. I have tried every single suggestion - and I think it is a flaw in the counter. Why did I get ONE point when I posted five "Likes" trying to get my three points? I wish this would be fixed or the whole feature would go away. I try every day - and it simply does not work. Can anyone help?????
