I am at www.proz.com/translator/13030. I have LinkedIn and Twitter in my Contacts, but--try as I might--I keep getting an error message when I try to associate Facebook with my ProZ profile, telling me to try again later. I've been trying for 3 days!

I gave up trying on IE because of a cookies conflict, but even in Mozilla, I get the same error message.

Any ideas what might be happening and whether there's a way around it?

BTW, my Facebook page is 'Catherine Muir, Translator, Indonesian>English, Native Speaker US English'. I would welcome 'Likes' but mostly I need help linking up that page with my ProZ profile.

Cheers and thanks,
Catherine Muir

Facebook Page vs. Profile Sep 3, 2012

Hi Catherine,

Maybe the problem comes from the fact that the FB integration on proZ works for Facebook Profiles and not Pages?

Are you using Facebook as your Page only or do you have a personal profile behind it?

Cheers,
Anne
