Two FB pages of a bilingual site: second language page removed?

 7:50 pm on Feb 23, 2010 (gmt 0)

Hi there,

I'm not really familiar with FB, would like to ask for your opinion.

I have a website that goes parallel in two languages. For FB users' convenience I thought I'd set up two fan pages to provide news about the site, one for each of the two languages. Page titles are like "Site (en)" and "Site (hu)" to make the difference clear between them.

Today when checking the Pages You Admin page I see that one of them that had 30ish fans yesterday now has "-" fans. Clicking on it I get the message: "Profile Unavailable Sorry, this profile is not available at the moment. Please try again shortly."

Is it possible that some moron at Facebook simply deleted the page in the belief it was a duplicate? Or does FB have a policy that wouldn't allow more than one Fan page for the same site - even if they are in different languages with totally different user base? (Reading through their fan pages help sections I couldn't find anything related to this issue.)

Or maybe it's just a temporary error? They advise to wait 24 hrs and to see if data is restored by then. I'm not holding my breath, though.

OK, happy ending of the issue: fan page restored. It apparently was a Facebook glitch.
