So, Facebook decided to listen and employ the idea.

Report a new bug on Facebook!

The latest details in Facebook Page new design story have just emerged – Facebook has a bug when applications are used on pages with new design!

In the case the application has a Fan Gate embedded (as majority), when visitor clicks on the “Like” button, nothing happens. Visitor stays on the same page. He is not redirected to the next step/page. He needs to manually reload the page in order to see the content following Like gate page. We hope this is a bug that will be fixed soon. In order to achieve this, apps developers should report this issue here – https://developers.facebook.com/x/bugs/trending/

But, more serious problem detected is this: ”The parameter app_data is missing in signedRequest.”

Complains have started already so check and test if you got the access to the latest page design.

Since these issues are emerging, we definitely recommend you not to apply to the waiting list provided to speed up the process of getting the new design on your page, before all of them are solved.

You might seriously endanger applications on your page!
