  • 34. Major Problems with Privacy
  • 35. Administrator has to choose whether between twoextreme possibilities ( either all or none ).This makes it impossible to assign posting rights toparents for a specific page.There is a approval mechanism in built in the timelinebut it also creates problem as administrators have toreview each post individually
  • 36. Although according to the Facebooks policy oneaccount can administer unlimited number of pagesbut personal experiments over the last two weekssuggests :1. After 40 to 49 pages if they do not have muchactivity they get automatically deleted from thesystem without any warnings.2. After 70 pages you cannot create or administer anynew page unless 50% of them have 25 fans.
